“Couldn't have asked for more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

We stayed at the hotel betweenews the 23rd of February and the 3rd of March! What I read in the reviews before I went couldn't have been more true! Yes it is a 3* hotel but the staff make you feel like you are staying in a 5**
We arrived and were immediately greeted with smiling faces and a lovely refreshing drink. From then on we could not have been looked after any more. A few shout outs to the people who really made our holiday so special. Alex, Mahmood and Walied made sure our glasses were never empty and were so friendly it genuinely felt like we left good friends behind. Ahmed from the pool was fantastic, our towels were put out in "our spot" every morning before we arrived and he also did a great job at keeping us entertained.
Talking of entertainment, the entertainment team were fantastic. Keeping us busy during the day with water polo and Killer Darts and different entertainment every night. Big shout out to Tash from the entertainment team who seemed to really go the extra mile.
As for the food, it is small compared to other all inclusive hotels we have stayed in before however there was always plenty of choice and we certainly never went hungry.
Our room was always clean and had new towel art every day :)
Would we go back? Most definitely!!!!

Went with my sister and we didn't have high expectations...
What a fab holiday. :-)
You pay for what you get.
Couldn't fault a thing.. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good, didn't tire of it as much as I have in other all inclusive.. Mainly because there was a special every night. Drink was average for local spirt. Didn't tire of that :-) No problems at refilling your own water bottles in dining room or at bar
Very happy holiday :-)

I really needed some time away to de stress and have some sunshine; this holiday certainly did that. After reading all the positive reviews before booking I am glad to say that Sol y Mar lived up to them all. The hotel is much smaller than most in Egypt but this is not an issue at all. The staff are so friendly, the food was lovely and varied, the weather brilliant and the hotel itself was clean and modern. All the people working at the hotel made this such a pleasant week away. I would definitely recommend Sol y Mar.

Got this holiday very cheap so wasn't expecting much. Was very very pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The facilities are all clean and nice, and the pool isn't too cold. The best thing was the staff though. For a cheap all inclusive I expected very basic service. Instead, they always brought us drinks around the pool, often when we hadn't even asked, and even though it was a buffet at dinner they'd always bring drinks and everything. We hardly had to move. At night they always got me drunk and made some interesting cocktails. They even took us clubbing one night - the taxi was free, entrance was free and all our drinks in the club were free. They just always went above and beyond what I was expecting. You can get a free shuttle to their sister hotel which is even nicer and right on the beach - you can eat and drink there for free too. I really have no idea how they make any money. It's good to tip them but they never ask for it and always seemed very appreciative of a couple of pounds here and there, so it doesn't break the bank. The food was really good and is cooked fresh in front of you. We thought we might get ill, but even though we ate salad and fruit, we never got ill in the slightest (apart from some pretty horrendous hangovers). Nor did we hear that anyone else had got ill. I'd definitely go back again if I wanted a cheap break in the sun.

We spent a week at this hotel from 3rd-10th March and can only repeat the fabulous previous reviews, the food is excellent, the staff are so friendly and the place is kept spotless.
The animation team do a great job keeping everyone entertained with darts, water polo & table tennis tournaments.......Or better known by us as Les v Colin, the animation team would give out certificates during the evening entertainment to the winner ( Colin won lol) .
The bar staff are lovely keeping your glass full and entertaining you to with a little dance or a joke.
Don't want to single any off the staff out, they were all great guys who enjoy making your holiday special.

Thanks for great memories , Les, Michelle, Colin & Tracey
Definitely will return.

I have just returned from sol y mar and I have had such an amazing holiday from start to Finish. It is a really nice hotel and the staff are incredible always making sure you are entertained and always have a smile on their faces. It was my first holiday to Egypt and my first holiday away without my parents and I enjoyed every second of it. The food is really nice always something different to try and a good range of food. I enjoyed eating down by the pool as I love the pizza. The staff are so friendly and easy to talk to and are always willing to do things for you. I also loved the entertainment team always happy and smiling and getting you to join in with them. I had a fantastic holiday cant wait to go back.
