Firstly, Sharm is very much a resort which treats women as 2nd rate citizens - Man is BOSS so they kept saying. My wife was ignored by many of the male staff which has put us off going back as a family. We are a mixed race family so are certainly not racist!
Hotel on arrival looked smart but first impressions are very deceptive - it is more like a 3 star Hotel. Room was ok but not cleaned thoroughly. Pools were supposed to be cleaned overnight but so much mould in the grout and gritty floors. Pools were closed occasionally as certain cultures let their babies poo in the pool as they don't use swim nappies.
Restaurants - Couples only restaurant was clean and tidy, Family restaurant was manic and dirty - my 10 year old son fell over on food left on the floor hurting his wrist, plates still had food stuck to them.
Poolside needs more shades as there is plenty of open space - had to get up before 5.00am just to get shaded loungers.
The Weather - PERFECT!
We were pestered (VERY FREQUENTLY) by the local watersports people to get us out on a boat trip - charged me Â£120 for what turned out to be 2 hour trip (including travel time of 1hr) that was dangerous for young kids - after a huge complaint to the General Manager of the Hotel, we got some of our money back. Stick to trips organised through your tour operator.
We did tip the staff that looked after us which was only a handful of guys around the pool and certain snack bars - ROMANY was an absolute GEM and made sure may family were kept full of fluids even when we didn't order them.
If you are thinking of Sharm as a holiday destination - PICK YOUR TIME WISELY! The holiday makers from local Middle Eastern Countries are rude, dirty, wasteful and can ruin your holiday experience. We had many of them there for our first week and they flooded the restaurants, handled food and put it back in the containers, drank from cups and put them back with clean ones, left dirty nappies next to their sun loungers, list goes on - HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY about them.
Outside of the hotel was OK and I felt safe with my sons, but as soon as my wife came out, the people changed!
My favourite experience was with the Kite Junkies team who were completely different in every way - friendly, professional and very helpful.
Many British people had similar complaints but if you can get past some of these issues, you'll be fine.
Lastly, the hotel next door has an outdoor disco which was so loud that if you wanted an early night or want to get your kids to sleep, you will struggle until midnight.
I have been to the Caribbean with my Wife and children many times and have never had these issues so on that basis we are ruling out the Middle East as a holiday destination.

not 5*, if you want 5* don't come here!
Room great cleaner was fab, grounds amazing, gardeners work amazingly hard. Adult only restaurant good if we couldn't have used this it would have been awful as buffet restaurant needs lots of improvements, parents need to be told to control unruly children. Jetty is long but well worth the walk, however if you expect a cold drink after a long walk back don't, drinks usually served luck warm when we asked for ice we were told there wasn't any!! we stayed for 2 weeks and in the second week the pool nearest the beach was closed twice as someone pooed in it! Really do people not know when to find a loo? Toilets near beach and by pool not clean only after a complaint did this improve, not what you would expect from a five star, we've stayed in other 5* hotels in Egypt and they can manage a 5* hotel so the Jaz Mirabel Beach has much to learn......Day time entertainment for our 13 year old non existent, evening entertainment is singers every night, tedious to say the least! Thomson reps (both males) very unhelpful and one inpaticular very rude and almost aggressive if I hadn't been with my husband would have felt intimidated, not what you should expect! Would not recommend this hotel and definitely wouldn't return even if it was free!!More
Very disappointed !!!!
First trip to egypt booked this hotel cost alot of money but that's ok me knowing I was going 5* but this hotel is not 5* been in better 4* food bad rooms dirty dated stained furnishings, a/c was broken on arrival so for first 2 nights we roasted! Constantly pestered around the pool .If you want good service you have to tip well else forget it. The town near to hotel was ok very friendly people but got harassed by to men with a camel outside of gates begging for money! Poo in the pool nearly everyday we were there . And to top it of day 3 I had severe delhi belly and home now still suffering despite using hand sanitiser all of the time. I won't be returning to egypt !More
Was advertised as a 5 star but was only a 4 at most, however I've been to a few places like this and got to say there was a singer on Saturday night who was amazing, I think her name was Emma, really talented young lady. Food was ok and the pool area was nicely looked after and clean,
Just had a great 10 day holiday to the jaz mirabel beach hotel.. 1st this hotel is clean and well maintained. The pool areas are clean and looked after. Downside lack of shade need to buy 150 parasols. There are plenty of sun beds if u ask the towel guys they will get you a sunbed.. 2nd the restraunts the family one is a bit manic but it was august. The adult one was clean and you was well looked after IE the staff especially JIHAD was very helpful. The food I have to admit was great for all inclusive a wide variety of choices.. 1 of the best all inclusives I've been to. 3rd the bedroom was cleaned everyday and immaculate seen some reviews on here about the bedrooms but I don't no where they stayed as our bedroom was lovely with 4 English movie channels and bein sports in English.. 4th the bars the adult bar was great only downside was the drinks were not fantastic but as it's all inclusive was expected. 5th the pool bars got drinks easy and GEORGE.. Was very helpful and a laugh.. And finally reception staff very helpful if we had a problem and was just 1 problem which got sorted straight away.. I would say this hotel is more a 4* than a 5* but can't really moan as we has a fantastic time.. And would go back. Thanks jaz mirabel we has a lovely holiday...More
