Jaz Mirabel Beach
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
Yes, I'm hungover this morning, and yes it happens to be the brightest, hottest and calmest day of the year so far, so yes, every time I remove my sunglasses I feel like a goblin exposed to the sun's rays, and attempt to imitate Gollum... But also yes, yesterday I completed my Divemaster course and this morning we're sending off all the paperwork for that. I feel very proud of myself, looking ...
... bubbling of shisha pipes, and the ever present shout of street traders. Me, Charlotte and our guide were cornered by a particularly tenacious man, with crooked teeth and greasy hair, holding necklaces in his hands, draped over each finger. Eventually, me and Charlotte got him down from 400LE for one set of matching to two sets for 75LE. He was very upset. We moved through the bazaar, though I could not imagine charlotte's constant want for jewellery could get us into ...
... marijuana in my life illegally. The pipe was strawberry flavored and didn’t taste too bad. I am definitely a rookie at this. I think I was more entertainment for Claire as she watched choke on the smoke than the dancers were for her. We sat on the 3rd level and had a great view of the city lights outside of watching the show. I have seen the knife dancing before where they light bow staff or chains on fire while dancing. The belly dancing ...
... although I think with better weather (it was quite cloudy) and vis the vibrancy of the corals will be amazing, so I need to go back!
The Sunday we dived at Gabr El Bint, which is one of the first sites I did when I first came to Dahab, amazing wall dives. lots of stunning corals and we saw another octopus and a glossidoris nudibranch too! These were also the only dives I've done so far where I haven't got out ...
Well today started well it's a shame it didn't end that way. After sleeping in quite a bit and having breakfast at the camp it was off to buy mosquito repellant and sandals. Walking along Dahab sea front is a bit of a chore as every restaurent, shop keeper, random Egyptian tries to sell you something. I was after sandals and the shop keeper quoted me 220 egyptian pounds which is about £22, to which i told him i would give him 50 egyptian pounds which is about 50p. He didn't like ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jaz Mirabel Beach Sharm El-Sheikh
My partner and myself stayed at the mirabel for 2 weeks 17th-31st August.
Arrived back this wek from a weeks holiday in the Mirabel Beach Hotel. The Hotel is beautiful and because its new there really isnt anything you can complain about, the only thing that really niggled my partner and I was the intrest given to the germans! the way the waiters laid out towells on their sun beds and brought them drinks all day but did we get asked? No. We did get a good deal when booking but that shouldn't make any difference to the way we are treated on holiday. I would always treat people with respect no matter what thier religion or nationality so why do we get treated like this. I must admit it was mainly round the pool area and everything else was lovely but it's just annoying. The disco wasnt open but it was due to open in a few weeks and then I'am sure there will be something for everyone. Try high tea at the A-la-carte they have treats that are scrumptious.
Just got back this morning after 8 days of lazy sunbathing and wish it had been 8 weeks!! After iffing and wiffing for weeks about cancelling this holiday having read one of the very first reviews, I'm just so glad that I didn't - it is absolutely beautiful in so many ways and in my opinion getting better every day. By the way, this could go on a bit, so stop now if you don't want to fall asleep....
Fantastic relaxing holiday
My wife and I recently returned from holiday in the Mirabel beach resort, and found it to be the most relaxing 2 weeks of our lives.
The hotel was spotless, staff really helpful, and food was great.
I would recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a lazy holiday, although there is a great deal of trips to go on.
If there was anything I could say bad about the place was the fact that the staff where not fully trained yet and found it difficult at times dealing with people's request's. hopfully this is all ironed out by now, as it was just opened.
dont be put off though because as far as value for money goes this is got to be one of the best places to go for the price you will pay.
We arrived when the hotel had opened only 3 days before. All was beautiful, very clean all staff helpfull and very friendly. We - a family with 2 kids of almost 15 and 13 - had the time of our life. Go to the gym and meet Ashraf. He really knows what excercise is all about. In the main restaurant Mr. Rabie knows how to train the waiting staff - say hello to Whaled. The buffets have a large variety, the dessertchef - Chef Mamdouh - is a wizzard with sweets. Say hi to him too! Our family room was for our family a litte cramped, the beds for the kids very hard. Take your own pillow, that helps. The beach is very clean, the Reef is a perfect poolbar/snackbar. Say hi to Reda and chef Sameh here. You will find you are a guest here and not a tourist. Enjoy every minute, this is a resort to return to. Regards from the Dutch family Vermeij.
Initially we too were worried about the fact that people were reporting back that the hotel was unfinished and had no facilities. I can tell you that there was no need to worry.
We had a fantastic holiday at the Mirabel. The rooms were spotless as were all the facilities. The food was excellent and there was a very wide range of different foods. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. This resort tends to cater for the more relaxed holiday maker and maybe wouldn't suit people who like to get out and about a bit more. As the resort is still resonably new there isn't much to do outside the hotel but saying that it's not difficult to arrange excursions.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing, care free break with excellent hospitality and great views of the ocean.
we stayed here the first week in august and find it hard to believe that anyone staying here before this date found everything fantastic as only minimal areas were open then, however ,even during the week we were there more and more places opened,e,g, restaurants , pool bars, entertainment,,,,,
My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Mirabel Beach in Sharm El Sheikh. The hotel is brand new, the facilities were great and it exceeded all of our expectations. The staff could not do enough, the food was superb and our Thompsons rep lianne was very friendly and approachable. There was one A la carte restaurant open during our stay and the food was out of this world. The main buffet has a large selection and you have to try the all inclusive cocktails!!! We have travelled with thompsons many times and once again we were not disappointed. This really was a holiday to remember and i cannot recommend it highly enough.
