This stylish hotel puts you on the edge of a sandy beach and a beautiful coral reef. And it’s got three big pools, too.
This elegant hotel is tucked in a half-moon cove. The house reef makes it a prime dive spot, and there’s a diving centre on the beach. There are three pools, too, plus you get free entry to a nearby waterpark.
There are two choices when it comes to food – the buffet restaurant or the beach bar, which does lunchtime snacks. After-dinner entertainment comes in the form of live shows, with singers, fire-eaters and more.

Very nice location - excellent for relaxing and snorkeling
I visited this hotel in March 2017. The beds are comfortable, the shower in room 2243 needs to be renovated, but the water pressure was great. Also very good, the room service, I got a folded animal made out of towels every day (a dollar a day under the pillow helps). Madinat Coraya region is excellent for relaxation and snorkeling, you can enter the sea by a long jetty, left for snorkelers and right for divers. In the area you can then encounter sea turtles, barracudas and many other fish, there are so many. What also is interesting and should be used to get to know the other Jaz restaurants is the Dine around concept, one day in advance you tell at the reception that you would like to try the buffet restaurant for the evening meal, you have the choice between Jaz Solaya (cool they also have theme evenings), Jaz Samaya (here you will also find the most cheapest Data SIM cards for your iPhone or Android, 20 GB is only 30 Euros, ask Michael, he will set everything up for you) or the Jaz Dar El Madina (very lovely setup, small but beautiful). A food corner also serves little snacks after 12 until 17 in the afternoon, plus you can get a light snack also served at the beach restaurant. For all you PokÃ©mon trainers out there, the Madinat Coraya has 7 direct access Pokestops and there are 3 gyms. You will find Corsola, Sandshrew, Geodudes, Growlthes and many more maybe in your area very rare PokÃ©mons. The region is also known for finding a lot of Pikachus. One gym is at the Jaz Solaya, there you also find a Pokestop. The other gym is at the seafront of the Jaz Samaya, next to the shore line you will then find two more Pokestops. The 3rd gym is at the beach next to the Steigenberger Coraya Adults only results. There you will also find two more Pokestops at the hotel location (if you are over 16, no worries, just go there and turn the disc). Two more Pokestops are found at the front of Jaz Lamaya. Sunset and sundowners, offered by the Jaz Hotels Every evening at 17.00 you will be able to watch the most beautiful sunsets at the special spot where also drinks are served (for free, non alcoholic, but you can add Gin, Vodka or Rum). Great to watch.More

We have just arrived back home after spending 4 great weeks in the Lamaya, this was our 13 visit, and we have never been let down, by this great Hotels team. From the top Management , all the way down the chain, everyone is cheerful and all enjoy talking to you. We have heard there have been reports that the staff are unfriendly and rude, This is certainly not the case. I have seen fellow British who are very rude to the staff, eg, By clicking their fingers at them, and also shouting at them, I am sure they do not do this at home, Once again the rooms are spotless, and the room boys do an excellent job, Pool boys and towel boys are also excellent, as are the beach boys. The Morgana Bar and staff are very hard working, and its a pleasure to have known them so long. Hassan and his staff at the pool bar, are great. The animation team do a fantastic Job, and we both wish Alex all the best in the Army. Congratulations must go to El Sayeed at the front desk, on His promotion, and also to Marmoud now Bar manager. and also to Ibraheim in the Restaurant You can now go and have your meal at the three other Hotels if you book the day before, Samaya, Medina, and Solaya. They are all has good. One downside, We have heard that the Visa is going to Double in Price, $50, but so far this has not been confirmed, But be prepared. Now we are back home and in the cold, But we will be back again in November. So a very big thanks to all the staff for a very warm and Happy holidayMore
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a nice hotel with excellent staff then the Jaz Lamaya is the place for you. The hotel is well kept and apart from a few minor issues it was kept extremely clean and well maintained. The food was great and we never struggled for something to eat, the service in the restaurant was fantastic and the team serving us always had a genuine smile and a warm greeting for us ...it looked as though they really enjoyed their jobs. For us the house reef was quite important as we are keen snorkelers and it did not disappoint! The reef closer to the beach is protected and you have to either walk along a peer or around the bay to gain access to the coral and the abundance of marine life.(sea turtles, octopus, cornet fish, lion fish, box fish I could go on!!) If you dint fancy the beach there are 2 main pools (one of them heated) which are kept very clean. The pool bar is fantastic and every credit to the team who worked there to keep it running so smoothly especially Omar who looked after us so well and never stopped smiling and joking with us he was the outstanding member of the team for us. The rooms were large and comfortable and the room staff left the room clean and tidy every day. So overall a very enjoyable first time visit and it will definitely wont be our last well done Jaz Lamaya Resort we will be back!More
I had the best time at Lamaya Resort. Fantastic hotel, best all incl hotel that IÂ´ve stayed at. Other hotels with all incl, thereÂ´s always some things that cost extra. Not here, its ALL incl. And snacks at the beach when the restaurangs are closed. The hotel room was perfect size, bed and pillows very comfortable. Every day the cleaning guy mad funny animals of the towels, which was very much appreciated :) The absolut best thing with this trips was the Animation team. What a team! They mad the whole trip. They gave so much of themself, 100% dedication to all tourist. Every night a new show, one better then the other. Amazing! Every day at the pool, thereÂ´s activities lead by the team. Zumba, aerobics, live band, stretching, pool volleyball. For everyone, all ages :) I strongly recommend you to visit this hotel.More
Second time at this hotel and just as good as last time. The location is perfect in a secluded bay with its own reef. A bit windy sometimes, but wind brakes are positioned by the helpful beach boys so not too much of a problem. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Even the gardeners wave and say hello. The Animation Team are brilliant, putting on nightly shows in the theatre. We enjoyed each one. Well done Jaz Lamaya. We will be back.More
