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.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Late breakfast 10.00-11.00.
Afternoon tea and coffee 16.00-17.00. Selected local-brand alcohol and soft drinks until 24.00.
Snacks 12.00-17.00 and pastries 16.00-17.00. Late snacks 23.00-24.00.
Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and late snacks with themed buffets ranging from Asian, Italian and Mediterranean to Oriental, French and international cuisine. Gluten free menu available on request. Dress code applies, long trousers for men and no vest tops.
Twin room with pool view sleeps up to 2 adults and a child with a double or twin beds and an extra bed, suitable for a child up to 12 years. Please be aware there is a charge for the minibar and internet.
Me and my girlfriend have just got back from our first trip to Egypt, and it was a brilliant thanks to our hotel..
On arrival all the staff were very helpful taking our bags off us whilst we had some food provided by the hotel even though it was midnight. First couple of days we wasnt sure what to expect but we were not let down. Ive never stayed in a hotel with such friendly and helpful staff. They would go to the end of the earth for you if you asked! Especially Luka and Michael who were our favourite, although all the bar staff would always have a smile and have a laugh with you.. My girlfriend was ill for a couple of days, but the hotel were right there with tablets, drinks and anything she needed to get better. Even the cleaner of our room went out of his way to get some fresh mint, which he told us to put in boiling water and to drink which would help her stomach pains, she was soon back on her feet drinking endless amounts of gin and tonic!!
Couldnt of wished for a better hotel really, food was nice, good range of alcoholic drinks, good atmosphere, mainly english people aswell which helped! Not a 5* hotel but its everything you need for a great holiday!More
Can't stop coming back!!!
This hotel is the fantastic, mainly due to the awesome people who work/manage it! This was our forth time visiting this hotel and we can't seem to get enough of it. They honestly love to hear feedback and will do anything to make your holiday even better, so if you have any issues tell them and they will do whatever they can to make it right.
I want to congratulate Mr Alaa (General manager), Mr
Luka (food and beverage manager) for ensuring this hotel continues to improve year after year and for making me and my party feel like royalty.
Animation team continue to please and keep everyone active, bar staff are always smiling (Masry and Mikey both fantastic), big patisserie chef is lovely and has passion for his food and if you need looking after go and see Mido upstairs as he always around for any help/advice. If you need any excursions I wouldn't listen to the scaremongers, I have never felt at risk in Sharm and speak to Josef and he will do you a good deal and also if you want a fantastic tan and massage speak to Maher from the VIP team for awesome deals and packages.
This is not a 5* hotel but it offers a 5* service.
Thanks again for another fantastic stay and we will see you again in 2015.

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
