Reviewed 28 February 2014

Just returned from the Sol Y Mar Sharks Bay 12-26th Feb.
Amazing Staff in the Bars Restaurants and especially the Animation team a big thank you to all for keeping us entertained feed and watered during our stay, we have never met such happy staff not only with the guests but themselves also clearly great management plays a big part here so a very big thumbs up from us, the only small let down was our room cleaner he kept unlocking our patio door when cleaning so having a locked front door seemed a little pointless at times..

The food was great always a good selection from Breakfast to the evening meal, Burgers Pizza and Salads available from the pool bar if you did not want to go to the main Restaurant for a midday meal.

Location was great for us wanting to be away from the hustle and bustle in my view should be a adults only hotel some where to chill read a book sun bath etc.
Free bus down to the sister hotel if you wanted to chill by the beach lovely location with sea views from this hotel, you could get drinks and food from the beach and pool bars as part of Sol Y Mar A/I which was handy but the staff there were not that friendly or helpful so we preferred to stay at our hotel.

Entertainment day and night was spot on always something to keep you entertained if you wanted to get involved or just watch the two Dave’s dancing was just something to behold nice one guys, PJ Wining the poolside darts, and not forgetting the very competitive pool water polo not for the faint hearted…

No problems getting a spot by the pool plenty of space during our stay, the spa treatment and excursion guys were a little annoying but a firm no if you were not interested generally did the trick, we did the Scuba and Snorkelling trip well worth it it was a great day out and a bit of a bargain at only £26.00 each and the bonus of a free trip to Soho Square just sweetened the deal amazing place to spend an evening have a pint at the Queen Vic !! Also great place to shop and eat with out being pestered at all.

In conclusion
Had a fantastic holiday made even more special by some new friends for life we have made you know who you are !!!! would be happy to return..

Our second stay proved to be as good as if not better than our first stay 12 months ago. Superb staff and atmosphere. This time we stayed for 2 weeks and weren't disappointed. So much so we are hoping to return for a week in May. A real gem.

Just returned from 12 nights at the Sol Y mar, following all the good reviews i had high expectations which were all met. Travelling with 3 teenagers youngest 16 y we were made to feel immediately welcome from the minute we arrived in reception to leaving.
The hotel is small but this was great for getting to know the staff and people staying in hotel. The rooms spacious and clean (nothing to much trouble for Mohammad) yes bathroom was a little tired but didnt intend spending too much time in there.
Food none of us could fault and we all ate plenty. The snack bar during the day makes fresh pizzas and burgers which was lovely. Food seemed to be aimed at the British and was spot on.
The bar staff /pool staff and animation team made the holiday - always friendly , service excellent drinks always topped up and nice. All staff including the managers got involved with table tennis and throwing the guests in the pool particularly my girls- all good fun. The music around the pool was fine as long as not right next to speakers and there was plenty sunbeds to choose from.
The terrace bar was lovely at night and the animation team worked hard to entertain, previous experience of hotel entertainment the brothers were excellent. Luca the manager regularly asked if any problems or how too improve hotel which felt like they really cared.
The hotel stands alone and you need a taxi to trips or shopping but taxis are very cheap and service good.
Big Big thank you to Luca and all the bar staff, Walieed, Ahmed, Alex, Magdy karemme Bobosh, Aziz, Pola, Mo nad Ahmed (soory if missed anyone -all was great)
There is no doubt that on our next visit to Sharm we will be booking the Sol Y Mar. The whole family loved it. -:)

You can go Posh and stay at the Hilton, the Savoy or the Sensatori in Sharm, but you would find it hard to beat the staff at the Soly Y Mar in Sharks Bay. This was our 3rd time and we enjoy it from the moment we get there to the moment we leave. So the rooms could be a little more elegant and the bathrooms finished to a higher standard, but just compare the prices against the big boys.We booked with booking.com and it worked out at £15.00 each a day ALL INCLUSIVE.
Mr Ayman and his staff cannot do enough for you and are very attentive throughout your stay making sure you as the customer are looked after all the time.I would recommend this Hotel if you want to be spoilt,make friends, chill out and enjoy the Egyptian hospitality.

We went to the Sol Y Mar for Christmas and New Year. I was a bit worried when we approached the hotel via what seemed like a desert track but once inside our fears were soon dispensed with.
The staff are attentive, courteous and can't do enough for you. I have been to Egypt 6 times previously and have stayed at some of the most expensive hotels. This hotel beats them with ease because of the staff. The food is good and plentiful, they have certainly adapted to cater for a british holidaymaker.

I traveled as a companion for a young man with a brain injury and I was concerned that there would not be enough things to do to keep him entertained, I could not have been more wrong. Everyone from the animation team to the bar staff to the reception staff made sure that he was having fun throughout the holiday.

I really cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. The rooms may be a bit basic and they could do with having ultra all inclusive for branded drinks, and maybe a few more british drinks, but you don't go on holiday to stay in your room all the time. The sister hotel is nice and big but the staff are nowhere as good as at the Sol Y Mar.

I rarely return to the same hotel on holidays as I like to experience something new each time, but my wife and I and 4 friends are going there again in July.

Room Tip: Try and avoid rooms close to the main bar if you have little ones as the music can be a bit loud lat...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at sol y mar sharks bay for the week all inc. Being february we wasn't sure where would still be hot. Sharm seemed the place. And we were right. The hotel is only 5min drive from sharm airport which was good. Whilst there we took the hotel taxi and bus numerous times and each time the driver was on time when picking us up. One downside is that we thought we had our own beech, it is in fact at thw sister hotel. Which was only five or ten mins free bus, and beautiful. Even though the sister hotel is lovely, great pools and also all inc, there wasn't many staff compared to sol y mar and the staff didn't seem as attentive there. The beech maade up foe it though and seemed rather peaceful. We also did a banana boat here which was great. . The room we stayed innwas of a fair size and a balcony facing the pool. The only let down of the hotel was the shower. There was no pressure to ours what so ever . And being female with long thick hair, it was impossible to have a thorough hair wash and do any shaving, as i had to use one hand to hold the pin up for the shower head to work, and the other hand to hold the shower head. It gave us a chuckle however it was very difficult.. The food at the hotel was brill, lots of variety at evening meals, myself and my partner loved the food. Dinner time u can either have a same style buffet dinner like the evening meal, or there's a bar downstairs near the pool u can get pizza burger hotdogs chips etc. The burgers were gorgeous. But there needs to be a bottle of vinegar at that bar for people who like it on their chips! Breakfast was ok too considering i dont normally do breakfast. An egg and omlette station, meats and pastries and hot n cold foods plenty of cereal and fruit etc. And the white beans in a tomato sauce were really nice. . The pool area was good and the pools a good size. Whilst relaxing and tanning we both participated in many games of the hotels water polo, which was very fun and energetic, playing with mixed ages was good fun and the entertainment man who played with us gets really into it as wel. . A downside to the entertainment is that on a night it doesn't start til 9.30 and i think that's slightly late especially if children want to watch. Although there wasn't many kids at the hotel at the time. Also i think they need to get professional people in once in a while maybe once a week to put on a show. As one night it was karaoke and there wasn't anyone to sing, the guests were expected to do the show. Some people want to sit and relax and watch a show being all inc. But the entertainment was good fun and the two brothers were very friendly and did a dance night together which was good. We booked a few trips through the hotel which were very good quality. The overall experience was amazing. X

My bestie and I visited on 2nd February as a last minute break away. We had no expectations having not visited before.
The Staff are absolutely amazing and cannot do enough for you. We were treated like absolute royalty. Magdy, Tom, Aziz, Elvis, Mohammed, Karemme and his Bro on entertainments and the restaurant staff were absolute legends.
We did not find the music an issue, it was only on for a short time before lunch and again late afternoon by the pool.
The evening entertainment always ended before midnight and the one occasion there was noise it came from another Hotel which could be an issue where ever you went. A few guests turned their noses up at the fact there was only 1 restaurant however the food there and the bar snacks were wonderful.
Lest we not forget Rambo who was soooo funny!
Our bedroom was a nice size with a lovely view of the pool. Yusef from the Hotel sorted out a boat trip at £20 cheaper than with the Holiday company we booked with, we saw Dolphins and had a brilliant day (albeit hungover from the nice green cocktails from the Managers cocktail reception the night before to welcome the new guests!!)
We met amazing people, the Egyptian ladies we danced with, the Italians, the locals, and lovely folks from UK.
I don't mind admitting I was absolutely gutted to leave!
Mr Sharif Leon Hotel Manager you have a wonderful team of employees who make a hard earned Holiday a truly wonderful experience and my friend and I cannot wait to come back and see you all again. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
