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 10.00 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.

BEAUTIFUL HOTEL, UNBELIEVABLE SERVICE
Me and my partner returned last Thursday from a week at the sol y mar , It was our first time in Egypt so we was a little apprehensive of what to expect. But as soon as we arrived our doubts drifted away. The hotel is beautiful , very clean and well maintained. The food was really good everyday. The staff were absolutely amazing, They are very much what makes this establishment tick, with in a few hours of meeting them they all knew our names and nothing was never too much trouble for them always asking if there is anything we need or would like, service with a smile and with a very personal touch. The bar staff and resturant staff work so hard in making your stay with them an extremley pleasant relaxed one. I would recommed this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing, chilled out holiday with excellent service . And once again thank you to all of you at the Sol y Mar for all your hard work and making are holiday one to remember. We will certainly be returning. BenMore

Amazing Home away from home. The place to be x
We have just arrived back from our 3rd visit in 10 months to the sol y Mar. From the minute we landed and our hotel air conditioned car was waiting and very welcome we were whisked back to the hotel in minutes checked in and was at the bar before other people arrived via thier transfer(contact hotel directly and this can be arranged for a small fee ). On arrival where it's great that every body knows your name and the welcome from all the staff is such a high level. Ibrahim again as per usual all your help and assistance is very much appreciated. And Luka again thank you the two of you make scrapbook family and is one of the reasons we return. Our room was as always supper spotless our room cleaner excellent. The pool and bar staff level of service goes above and beyond they remember your drink and make sure that you are always catered for. And you will never ever go hungry here there is something for everyone. I was lucky enough to get a soup recipe from the chef. Mahmood it was really great to see you again and thank u for my lattes ready and waiting. The pool area is very clean and Ahmed and his entertainment team keep the fun flowing all day and night at a level where it is very enjoyable it just made you wanna join you make our stay very enjoyable Ahmed you are the man and the new entertainment team have the energy the fun never stops Boom..but it did not interfere if you just want wanted to just chill and Sun bathe . Their is a sister hotel that you can use the beach all inclusive works to. But you will be glad to get home to the sol . Every day the management or a lovely lady.sushki forgive spelling asking if there is anything you need or require or if you have any complaints. And as I have said before you will not have a problem but if there is something speak to them and it will be rectified within 24 hrs.This visit they now do special dinners around the pool it is a beautifully setting . And my husband and I had our dinner cooked by the executive chef and his team.it was amazing . Then we settled down for Ahmeds team to entertain us and he never fails. On our journey home Luka made us a packed lunch and the hotel car returned us smoothly to the airport. My only complaint is yet again I was only there 7 days and did not stay longer. But as they say if we don't leave we can't return. Ibrahim and luka again you are a credit to the hotel and you represent them well. And make us feel we are truly at home. I would recommend this hotel to anybody and this is not a 5* just because it has no beach I find this unbelievable as the surrounds are not as important as the special relationships that you build here at the sol. Are 5*+.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions as I would be more than happy to help. Thanks to everyone at the sol from the cleaners,reception,all bar,pool,restaurant. We hope to seed you all again soon ðððð .More

Absolutely brilliant holiday, hotel & staff
Just come back from a 10 day stay at the Sol Y Mar and it was one of the best holidays i've ever been on. The hotel was lovely and clean. Rooms cleaned everyday, food varied each night and was lovely, staff are extremely polite, helpful and welcoming. They can't do enough for you. It is 100% obvious that their first priority is that the guests have the best stay possible. It provides that personal touch a lot of hotels lack. The animation staff are brilliant. They bring fun and entertainment poolside during the day and again in the evening with a variety of activities, games and shows. I can't fault the hotel or its staff. Every single one of them makes time to remember your name be it reception, cleaners, waiters, pool attendants or the animation team. Waiters remember your favorite drink and pool attendants remember where your chosen sunbathing location is and set up for you. This is what I mean by the personal touch. I have been on many holidays to many countries and this hotel has provided the best service I have ever had. I would recommend to anyone and I look forward to going again. Perfect location for any kind of stay from romantic couples to a family holiday. Plenty to keep kids busy and staff are amazing with kids of all ages.More
