The best all-inclusive in Sharm!
Posted Mar 4, 2011
My husband and I stayed at Sol Y Mar over the Christmas Break for 5 days, and it was one of the best resort holidays we have had in Egypt. The staff at this hotel are amazing! They are so helpful and friendly, every one of them when we were there. The head chef does an absolutely wonderful job with the daily menus. The 3 buffet meals that are served in the restaurant are simply delicious - every night was a surprise. My husband and I would wait in anticipation of our meals, wondering what they would have that night and we were not let down a single night. The lunches tend to be similar each day, but there is a good variety of dishes, both hot and cold. Breakfast is great, too.
This hotel is also one of the cleanest that I have been in during my many stays at many hotels in this country. The rooms were nice and still fresh (this hotel was only built in 2009, I think). We had asked for one with direct access to the pool, but upon check-in, they gave us a choice of that room (which we had paid only an extra $3 per night for) or a room on the upper floors. They let us see a room near the pool and I must say, I am glad we went with an upper floor room. The rooms with pool access are the same as the other rooms BUT they are much SMALLER. We were quite comfortable in the room on the upper floor.
This hotel is just a 10-minute taxi ride to the main strip in Sharm. The surrounding area is very quiet.
I would totally stay here again!
