Hotel Sol Y Mar Sharks Bay  

The Sol Y Mar Sharks Bay offers up contemporary rooms and All Inclusive dining. There's a large pool, too, and a shuttle bus that'll run you down to the hotel's private beach.

This hotel opened its doors in 2009, so it has a modern, fresh feel. The bedrooms are a case in point – they’re cool and contemporary, decorated in stylish light pastel colours. Slick touches include air-conditioning, satellite TVs and minibars.

Outside, this low-level hotel fans out around a good-sized swimming pool. If you’re coming in the winter months, it’s worth pointing out the pool’s heated at this time of year. The surrounding sun terrace is decked out with cushioned loungers and the fledgling palms are beginning to take shape. If you prefer the beach, the hotel runs a shuttle service down to Naama Bay and private beach.

On the food front, it’s an All Inclusive affair – with breakfast, lunch and dinner taken care of, buffet-style. If you like a lie-in, you’ll be pleased to know the hotel lays on breakfasts up until 11.00 in the morning. Plus, afternoon tea is part of the package. And if you fancy a seafood supper under the stars, there’s also an outdoor à la carte restaurant here - it’s worth paying that little bit extra for.

Thank you Sol Y Mar

I cannot fault this hotel. It is a fun, relaxed, chilled, friendly, clean, accommodating and PERFECT place to de-stress. The staff could not be better - the animation guys are awesome and the bar and wait staff could not be more helpful. A massive thank you to Micheal, Khalid, Salam and Aziz who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was everything we wanted and more. The food is good, the pool is a great size and temperature. Everything is spotlessly clean and modern, the drinks are well made and the staff obviously take a lot of pride in their work. The hotel has a great family atmosphere and feels more like a second home than a hotel. We will be back next year!!! Thanks again guys from Ant and JazMore

I just got back yesterday and I was so sad to leave !! My partner and I went with another couple for a 1 week holiday and had the best time !! The rooms were very clean and the staff were always cleaning and fixing things to keep it in excellent condition. The food was great and the drinks were very good, especially the cocktails.!! The staff were absolutely amazing ! Always so cheerful and friendly! Michael (wait staff) was my fave! He always made sure we had everything we needed and would bring our drinks to us and made our stay very enjoyable. Also the animation team only consisted of three people but they were very hard working and always kept us busy and entertained! Ahmed was the best as he was so friendly and really spent alot of time chatting to us and becoming our friend and he was always smiling and dancing and making us laugh :) It was a really great experience and I hope to go back again soon !! I definitely recommend this hotel if ur looking for a break ! More

Jacinta M,

Sharks Bay Hotel Sol Y Mar

my husband and I arrived home 2 days ago, we had a fantastic holiday we both thoroughly recommend this hotel. It was reasonably small very clean and extremely friendly. The only down side is unfortunately because our bus arrived to take us back to the airport an hour earlier than expected we didn't get to say goodbye to everyone. My favourite guys the animation team were a brilliant but we were so sad we did not get to say bye bye to Babboosh and his boys who made our holiday. You guys are an asset keep up the good work. Michael at the bar we love you too and definitely going to return next year. The weather was perfect , the food was good, day time and evening entertainment excellent. we also bought an excellent CD of the music played by the pool. Miss you already guys, see you next year ...More
