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 and late-night snacks are all 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.

relaxing holiday venue

Superb hotel with lovely staff who couldnt do enough for you, room great, food excellent, something for everyone. Only slight drawback was its location, if this hotel was beside the beach it would be perfect.Congratulations to the management and all the staff for a lovely holiday, keep up the good work.More

Great Hotel ♡

From the get go we were made to fell welcome. The transfer from the airport is only 5 minutes away and our bags were taken straight to our room, we arrived at 10pm so the restaurant was closed but they said they would take food to our room, so we had a few drinks in the bar. The rooms are nice with amazing air conditioning. All the rooms are pool facing, we were on the top floor with a private balcony. I know your on holiday but the TV in the room is so good.... All the premiere league matches, 2 good movie channels the lot haha. The pool side is nice, the hotel is small so you get to know people. The animation team are so nice especially NIKOLA♡...It wouldn't be the same without her. They try to get everyone involved but if you say no the respect that n move on...perfect. But they will they make great efforts to get to know everyone. Recommend the all inclusive nights out to hard rock café or beach party for £25.. They showed us a wicked night. Restaurant is nice...clean and everyone rushes around to serve you... especially the happy smiling Houssain, he is the main man! Loved him :) The food is lovely especially at dinner time. The bar staff are really cool and funny and give you a good service especially the funny Mohammed Selka!! .... right from the beginning he made us crazy cocktails and didn't let us leave our seats for drinks. He made our holiday. We made good friends with him, such a good guy :) The beach is only a 5 minute free shuttle bus to the sister hotel were you can use their beach bar for beer, soft drinks and snacks. But recommend a cab to papya beach. All in all a very nice holiday and would highly recommend it.More

Steve R,

Could be better

Just stayed at this hotel September 2014, hotel on the whole is ok, rooms are tidy and food is of a fairly good standard. However as there is only one bar open in the hotel it quickly fills up and you are left having no seat. The hotel also only seems to stock around 10 glasses and as such you will quite often be served drinks in plastic beakers. The staff here are very good though and extremely friendly and attentive. This is ofcourse with exception and I was rudely shouted at by one bar member for going to the bar to get a drink as they had previously forgotten to give my girlfriend a drink that she had ordered (I was told that I was out of order to go to the bar when I could see that it was busy) Animation team here are excellent and do their best to make sure you are happy and have everything. The equipment they have is not the best but you will never see them without a smile on their face. Hotel seems to be favoured by young groups of girls or boys but did not find any of them to be rude or noisy when returning to their rooms after a night out. I would not visit this hotel again as simply nothing to do here and would prefer to have a choice of where I go to eat in the evening or which bar I drink in.More
