Where do I start to explain what an amazing time we had at Sol Y Mar!!!! Firstly the hotel is very close to the airport, from our experience we would recommend (if you haven't already booked transfers) to call the hotel reception and book a taxi through them, the taxi drivers at the airport will try and rip you off...

I travelled with a friend and neither of us had been to Egypt before. We picked the Sol y Mar based on the excellent reviews on here and it didn't disappoint. I emailed ahead of our stay and requested a third floor room (which was a tip on here) and had an email back within 30 minutes confirming our room.... More

We went in April and it was super hot. Hotel is west if Sharm airport, 10 mins. transfer. Hotel was very clean. Mainly English staying here. All staff attended to your every need and always with a smile. A special mention to Mohammed the waiter, and Ahmed in the restaurant. The animation team kept everybody entertained. The only reason for... More

I stayed at the Sol Y Mar with a friend for a decent week in the sun. This is an excellent hotel. It is a short distance from the airport and is fairly small, giving a much more personal feel. Pros - nothing was too much trouble! The staff are second to none. From Mohammad who took our cases, Mohammad... More

As with all hotels in Sharm (I have been 7 times to Egypt, so have a good spread of hotel experiences!) the food is lukewarm, repetitive and the waiters over attentive. The rooms are clean, the beds medium firm at best, the alcohol poor and the entertainment strange.....in their defense trying to entertain several nationalities in a whole 2 hours... More

We have visited Egypt and the Red Sea on two previous occasions in 2007 and 2011 and have never been let down and this latest visit was no different. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday where you simply want to chill out then this hotel will suit you. You can of course venture outside the hotel and visit... More
