Perfect holiday location
Just got back from a week's stay at Sol Y Mar Sharks Bay. If there is a heaven on earth it probably could not compete with the service offered by this hotel.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we found that the staff could not do enough to make our stay a pleasant experience.
We arrived late at night, and like other reviewers have mentioned, the restaurant was closed but a buffet was awaiting us. The reception staff were a joy to meet, welcoming all guests warmly and providing assistance whenever it was needed.
The rooms are basic but well cleaned and if you are lucky your cleaner will leave you some towel art every day (helps if you show your appreciation by leaving a tip.)
The food was excellent and varied every day and the restaurant staff were always happy to help you find a table and deliver drinks. It is a bit unfair to single anyone out for special mention as they all worked extremely hard. Our main waiter was Saied who always met us with a cheerful welcome and friendly chit chat. All credit goes out to these hard working members of staff.
The bar staff were equally attentive and it is appropriate to give a special mention to Michael whose humour lasted throughout the long working day. I earned the nickname of Mr Ali Capone due to my wearing a panama hat on our first meeting. Whenever, he was in close proximity I would hear the name shouted out followed by a warm handshake and a friendly greeting. And I don't really want to leave out the other bar staff members whose energy level is astonishing considering their long working hours.
And then of course there is the entertainment team, Ahmed, Alex and Marina. When they weren't engaged in the club dances by the poolside and organising pool games they were wandering round the pool chatting to the residents. It was very clear that they had keen interest in making sure everyone was having a good day. And where do they get their energy from?? After a hard day working in the sun they then go on to provide evening entertainment. Truly, they are probably the main reason for declaring this holiday location to be a perfect choice.
OK, there may be bigger hotels in Sharm, some may be more opulent, some may be closer to the beach - but this hotel is a perfect choice if you are lucking for excellent service and a cosy atmosphere. This smaller sized hotel has another benefit in respect of the holiday makers being able to interact around the pool and in the bars. During our stay, I did not hear a word of complaint and that is unusal because someone always usually find something to gripe about.
My thanks go to the hotel management staff for runiing such a friendly establishment and my only question now is "When are we going back!!!!"
Well done everyone at the Sol Y Mar Sharks Bay.More

The best holiday ever!!!!
We have just returned from the best holiday ever!From the moment we arrived to the minute we left the hotel and its staff were amazing!
The room was clean on arrival and due to our late arrival the restaurant was closed so food was promptly sent up to our room.The usual"fight for a sunlounger "didn't happen once ,as poolside staff were always around to make sure you had a lounger and in the spot we wanted it.
The guys who work in the dolphin bar do not stop!they always made sure u had what you wanted and ever brought drinks to your lounger!!Staff in the restaurant were equally as attentive and simply could not do enough.All were amazing but a special mention to sied who was just an angel!
The activities team were fantastic!Always keeping everybody entertained throughout the day and no pressure if you didn't want to join in either..and above all such a lovely bunch..Mr Alex,Ahmed and marina.
All in all the best holiday I have ever had and we are already booking for next year within the next few weeks!
Thank you all for a fantastic two weeksMore

Welcoming, lively, friendly hotel. Great value. Beautiful beach facilities
We stayed at Sol Y Mar during September 2015. Upon arrival the staff were all very helpful and friendly and we got a few bits of helpful information about the hotel on the way to our room from Ibrahim.
The Hotel itself is fairly small and all the staff make an effort to get to know you (but also would leave you alone if you were clearly busy). The atmosphere at the hotel was very friendly and all the staff really make the hotel the place it is. Everybody who works there is so welcoming and very polite, I really couldn't fault them at all!
The rooms are fairly good, but for the price, very good i'd say. Almost every room has a pool view, which can be a little noisy later on at night due to night time entertainment, but this finishes at 12 so its not a big problem.
All the food and drinks are perfectly good. The local beer is decent and the cocktails etc are nothing special but all served generously and the staff make the best out of what I can only assume is a fairly small budget. The food was great, fairly similar each day but it was easy to have something different each day and be creative.
The sister hotel's facilities are absolutely stunning and the beach is one of the best I have seen. You can use the beach bar here for beer and soft drinks for free with your all inclusive band and also their snack bar which serves pizza/burgers/salads. Also it goes without saying but the snorkelling is incredible! Even just walking out without a boat.
Overall a great hotel, made better by the amazing staff and the beautiful facilities of the sister hotel. Don't hesitate to book!More
Just spent a week here with my boyfriend was brilliant. Hotel 10 mins from airport, on arrival greeted by friendly reception staff and Ibrahim took our bags to room he was very helpful and had a laugh and joke with us. Room was very nice and spacious and cleaned everyday with great towel art. Pool view from the room. In the morning the towel/pool man would take our towels to the sunbeds and made sure pool area was clean through out the day. Animation team were great everyday and night and kept everyone entertained. Ahmed and Alex were brilliant always smiling and were like friends to everyone they made our days fun with all the water activities which we both joined in everyday. Staff around the pool were great bringing drinks and ice cream. Kitchen manager Luka was brilliant and helped me out a lot as I have a food allergy and big thanks to Saied in the restaurant he was so helpful every single day also helped with the food for my allergy and couldn't do enough for us both at all meal times. The hotel and all the staff were great we loved our stay and would definitely go back.More
