“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This was our first time in this hotel and the second in Egypt. The hotel was as good as the comments said we read here before our trip. The room, the restaurant, the pool and the beach area were very clean. Drinks, food and snacks were good and tasty. We always found something delicious to eat. Staff is friendly and kind, they don't expect tip for everything, but they deserve it. There were free loungers every day at the beach without reserving it in the morning. If you didn't find any, there is a guy who helps you in a minute without asking. We hope to get back there soon.

In this hotel we were already 8x. The hotel is excellent for families with children and for pensioners. For young people, it is rather more peaceful character. Everything is excellent. Staff, accommodation, food, drink, cleaning rooms. Although it is a smaller hotel, so the beach, swimming pools and restaurants very close together. A few steps from the sea to their rooms. Beautiful, fragrant garden. Gradual sandy beach with access to the sea. Corals are very close to the shore, manageable even for non-swimmers. Lots of options for water fun, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, fishing. Possibility of walks along the beautiful coast, but also in the center makadi where shops, a pharmacy, a variety of restaurants, disco, bank etc.. This hotel can only be recommended.

Everything was excellent, the hotel, the staff, the food and the entertainment.
I wrote a review two years ago, now the hotel is even better.
The staff is very friendly, always smiling and trying to satisfy the clients.
Sure I'll return there

Room Tip: Pool view rooms, ground floor.

Stayed for 10 nights with kids. Very green resort, beautiful garden, quiet and no drunk people.
Rooms are a bit dark.
Very good entrance into sea even at low tide, you can swim directly from the beach. Hotel have own jetty, you can use it for snorkeling anytime. Corals are dead near the beach but you can find pretty good coral if you will swim 100m left side from jetty end or 50m straight forward into the sea. Many fish, Lionfish lives under jetty, two days saw barracuda and blue dotted skate.
Food variety is OK, some days was offered lamb. BBQ almost every dinner, crab, squid was offered too. Food and service improved greatly on days when hotel was inspected by Company Owner.

My Fiancee and i had a spectacular time at the club Makadi. We done everything from lounging by the pool to trips to luxor and we both enjoyed every single moment!
The food on occasions wasn't quite the usual "English delicacies", but due to the hotel being prodominently German and Russian we feel that the hotel catered perfectly for all Nationalities. DO NOT... be put off by the fact that (if your not Russian or German) you will probably, most deffinatly be the minority because you will love every second of your time here. The staff at the Sol y Mar Club are excellent. To name drop a couple 'Heny' who kept us fed and watered from the morning to the evening and 'Mustafa' who constatly smiled whist tending the bar with his side-kick 'Osama' Juggling both the beach bar and the hotel bar, doing a fantastic job for a solid 14 hours a day.
The only down side to our time spent here was the lack of adult entertainment in the evening. It was very child orientated even when time was pushing on past 10 o'clock but other than this minor down side.
Choose the hotel and you will not be dissapointed!

a really nice hotel with helpful and friendly staff .the resort is clean and very well maintained with outstanding gardens .the beach is clean but the downside is at around midday the sea starts filling up with jellyfish that rise from seabed they dont sting but are a little off putting .this resort now seems to cater for east european/german clients so we was the only english people there so wouldnt return
