small friendly hotelPosted Aug 15, 2010
The staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The studio suites have a large fridge and a small kitchen which is very useful. The access to the Mirabel is good as this provides access to the beach (although it takes about fifteen minutes to walk to the hotel and reach the beach.) The bed and breakfast option is also useful as you can eat in the restaurants in the Mirabel 5* if you wish. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced. Since it is a 3* hotel it would be unreasonable to expect 5* standards but this hotel provides good value for money.

Hotel "Near" Sharm - in still building "resort"Posted Jul 15, 2010 on Hotels
Very cheap, but definately not "cheerfull" resort style hotel in middle of unfinished complex. When up and running will be great for family wanting sun and pool. For me, as it had no real eating or drinking facilities, and no bottled water freely available, it was a disaster. Turned out to be some 30km from Naama, where i needed to be, so i left and went elsewhere. Also they had no cash facilities and as i dont use cards or run a tab it was very dry!! In the future "Yes", at the moment "No"!!

Only Hotel in the Universe Without InternetPosted Apr 24, 2010
I've read the previous reviews and, ironically, both sides are accurate. First, it's barely a step up from a Motel 6 (American budget chain). I call it Motel 6.5. It's probably the last hotel in the developed world without any Internet access at all. If that's completely unimportant to you, this place is OK. On the plus side, the place is clean and the staff is friendly. One might note that with only 10 or 15 guests in the entire place, the staff has plenty of time to be friendly. However, despite being friendly, they are not helpful with local knowledge. For example, they will not tell you about the shuttle bus that runs along the highway or what you should pay for a ride. They will not tell you about local tourism sites or tour operators. In short, the staff appears to know nothing of the area (even though they obviously must know these things.) The Mirabel Hotel complex that they have a facilities-sharing arrangement with is, as advertised, a mere 5-minute walk down the highway. It is a true 4- or 5-star hotel and the beach and pool facilities are excellent. But it is very expensive ($15 US for a half hour of Internet time, $3 for a bottle of water) and filled with married couples and children. The lounge is strictly Holiday Inn and the "disco" is...well...lame. And the staff are generally snooty and unhelpful. If the hotel could offer WiFi Internet and instruct the staff on how to help guests find their way around, it would be OK. My overall verdict: avoid it.

Watch out for hidden extrasPosted Feb 11, 2010
Sol Y Mar Sham Suites was a nice hotel - the staff were very friendly and always on hand to help - the rooms were clean and comfortable - the food was okay, but my criticism of it - one of the other residents unfortunately broke the key to his room ( broke in the lock) and they charged him a large amount of money - far above the going rate for Egypt and way above for this country, also the late stay was expensive - seeing as the hotel was empty.

Can't recommend Sharm el CheikPosted Feb 10, 2010
Its one big building site, with litter and waste sites, without character! Strange atmosphere, between locals and tourists.

NOT HAPPY!Posted Dec 18, 2009
Staff was not friendly or helpful. I wouldnt recommend this hotel to anyone. I was even charged for 2 days after I checked out in 1 day.Very poor service. I moved to the Sheraton close to the airport which I would HIGHLY recommend.

NIce Little HotelPosted Dec 2, 2009
My first impression on check-in was a very friendly staff. The ambience of the hotel surprised me considering the low rate I had paid. One manager who met me at the reception gave me a pleasant surprise by offering me dinner on the house for the rest of my stay. I needed an adapter plug in my room and this came quickly when I asked. The food at breakfast and dinner were excellent. The hotel was not crowded - maybe it's because many do not know about it. Being on a business trip I would have liked some wifi even if just in the comfortable lobby. Anyway I treasure the smiles and good attention I received at this hotel. Next time I visit with family I will definitely be headed there.

Adequate for a low cost short stayPosted Dec 1, 2009
The staff were very courteous and helpful, throughout the one week stay, the exception being the room cleaner who does not understand the basic level of cleanliness, he appeared to be more concerned with making designs with the towels. The gardens are well maintained and will continue to improve with maturity. The hotel is located in the middle of a substantial new building development, which if finished in the next 12 months should add considerable enhancement to the area. It is a significant advantage to be given access to the Mirabelle hotel complex, a short walk away. This offers good quality swimming pool and beach access as well as a good quality Italian restaurant.
