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.

Friendly Hotel with Fabulous People
First time in Sharm and couldn't have picked a better hotel. The service was excellent and we were very well looked after. All the team went the extra mile to make our holiday very enjoyable. Mohammed in the restaurant and his team were very professional and the quality of the food was good. The animation team with Tash and Bobosh were always buzzing around ensuring we didn't miss out on the entertainment. Thanks also to Ahmed who looked after us by the pool and Rambo who not only cleaned our apartment but also put together some impressive towel art. Nice touch by the management to invite all their guests for a cocktail.More

Rooms are a good sizes , clean & good storage .Comfortable bed & pillows , free safe & free air conditioning .Mini bar in the room is chargeable, but no price list ? Bathroom is small but adequate , there is a hairdryer , its not very powerful. Plenty of sunbeds & the pool is lovely and large with towels provided . Food is wonderful , really good quality & lots of choice . I`m a vegetarian & my husband eats meat , we have been spoilt rotten ( warning you will put weight on ! ) Drinks are ok , for an AL , much better then others I`ve stayed at . Entertainment during the day was a bit boring , the same 4 activities every day , at the same time . They need to shake it up a bit . On a night it was much better . The brothers on the entertainment team , are really great people & cared about all the hotel guests. The Staff at this hotel is what makes it so special . Great team and so much fun , the bar staff bring you drinks all day & all night long . You don`t even need to ask , they see your glass is nearly empty & a new one will appear . They always have time for you , a joke or a dance on a night .Waiters & Chefs in the restaurant , great professional services . Ahmed is the funniest & nicest pool man you could ever wish to meet !More
The Best Holiday.
Our holiday was fantastic! The hotel was absolutely beautiful and the staff were amazing- we had the best experience and the hotel exceeded all of our expectations. The room was perfect and the food was excellent. The pool is beautiful and the staff are extremely good at paying attention to detail, which makes a huge difference. We had an A* service from this place and would not stay anywhere else as a result- I would recommend this place to anyone. During our stay, we were treated with exceptional respect and I have never been to such a friendly environment whilst on holiday. The front of house staff have exceptional customer service skills and know how to make guests feel happy during their stay. They were informative, helpful and extremely polite at all times. They go the extra mile to accommodate guests and this made us both comfortable and extremely satisfied. Additionally, the restaurant and bar staff are very gracious and skilled in hospitality. We genuinely did not want to leave. Everyone we encountered was a genuinely lovely person. Our overall experience was flawless and the quality of the hotel was of a very high standard. We would not have changed anything about this trip- it was better than I could have imagined and we will certainly be returning.More

First visit to Sharm El Sheikh. Stayed at the Sol y Mar hotel and had the best time! The rooms were made up daily, were clean and the bed was really comfortable. Food was excellent - great choice and plenty of it. Staff were absolutely fantastic and could not fault them - we had great service, everyone was very friendly and could not do enough for you. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap break in the sun!More

If Carlsberg did hotels!
My wife and I have just returned from 11 nights at this hotel. If you like fly and flop holidays this hotel is small and very friendly. It is not near the beach, but has free shuttle bus to the sister hotel, if that is what you want. There are no guest lifts so if you find climbing stairs difficult then avoid it. Enough has been said on the positives of this hotel by others, The Food is outstanding - best we have had on any Egyptian hotel. The staff give you 5 star plus service, you do not have to make a hot drink or get a cold drink. I want to say thanks to Mr Sherif Leon and his staff for making the holiday exactly what it say's on the tin. I only have one criticism - I think water bottles should be provided daily free of charge as this is an essential drink. I know we were allowed to fill bottles from water dispensers, however, this is unhygienic, using the same bottles daily could lead to stomach upsets! We did not suffer with any of the Pharaohs curse! Egypt is hot and water should be given freely as much as you want, this is the only hotel water has not been given to me on request in the room or at the bars without a cost implication! Thank you to Ibrahim and Mohammed in reception - Sahid our room artist - Ahmid the pool/towel person - Foush and Walied Bar staff - Elsayed, the Chef - Tamer, Mamoud (Mohammed), A.Aziz and Makram (my Arabic teachers) in the Restaurant. Shukran and see you again Insha'Allah - إن شاء الله - for the special menu for my wife due to her allergies - Animation, Tasha and Bobosh - and Trips Adam and Josef (who are insured).
