absolutely excellent

We had the most enjoyable 2 weeks ever it was fantastic, the staff went out of their way to be helpful and so kind they always had the biggest smiles even though they had been on their feet all day. From the waiters to the guys that cleaned the rooms, the beach guys were there every morning waiting with our towels. The food was fantastic and the restaurants we went to could not fault the food. I would recommend the resort to young families as well as the kids club is good as well they really look after and entertain the kids all day long will definitely be going back soon one day for another fantastic 2 weeks kind regards Mr and Mrs De Waal NottinghamMore

jayne d,


This place is amazing!!! It was actually June 2012 when my partner and 8month old daughter at the time visited for a week. Everything is spotless, the foods beautiful and so much choice! The staff are soooo friendly and make you very welcome. Rooms are so spacious and very clean. Hope to go back again!!! Excellent stay More


Would return after learning what to avoid

Me and my partner went here in September, we weren't expecting too much as it was quite cheap. We had a really quick transfer from airport to hotel which pleased us both. We were then taken to our room where we found out we were on the ground floor after I had requested a first floor. The staff member taking us to our room said we had a great view of the pool and the sea. We couldn't see much as it was dark on arrival, ee went and ate which was great as we hadnt eaten in hours. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Upon waking in the morning, I was disappointed to see our "view". Directly in front was the children's pool- great location if you are with kids, but we weren't. I had booked a room with a jacuzzi on the balcony, this was wasted as we had NO privacy to use it, we had to wait till 1am one night because soo many people were walking past. The entertainment team was really good, its especially good for the kids around the pool, however, IT'S LOUD. We couldn't enjoy a lay in due to being so close and hearing eveything including about 20 episodes of peppa pig. Also on a couple of days I was ill and this was the last thing I wanted to listen too. It felt forced upon. We booked a trip to luxor and had to be up at 330am, trying to get to sleep the night before was impossible due to the loud entertainers. We did enjoy the adult entertainment in the view bar, it was a lot of fun to take part in!! Food was average, the stone grill did not live up to expectations, the best meals we had were in the indian and the italian. If you are coming here for beach- dont bother. we did the valley of the kings trip- well worth it, but DO NOT take your children, its a loooong, hot day. We also did the vip boat cruise, this was well worth the money. I know that being approached in the street is normal over there, however I think that spa workers coming round everyday consistently pestering you whilst you are trying to relax is a little annoying and pushy. The hotel itself was clean, although there are certain areas that could use a do up. I cant fault the staff, they are all hard working and friendly. We felt safe here the whole time, even out in the town, although be aware of pestering. I would come here again, but I would make sure I didnt stay in the same place again, ideal for families, but I can't help but think for a couple booking for an anniversary with a requested jacuzzi room, that this was an inappropriate place to put us.

Amy T,

Best visit to Sharm yet

We came back to Sharm after a ok (at best) stay at the Sol Y Mar 2 years ago. Last 2 weeks of August so we knew it would be very busy and very hot but overall really enjoyed out stay. Hotel is a short transfer from the airport (security at the airport was strict but better too much than not enough). We were without luggage for 24 hours and had good and bad experiences with the reps depending on who you spoke to (the petite girl with long dark hair who was there the night we arrived should not work in tourism - really let you down First Choice). We had interconnecting rooms in block 14 which worked really well as a family of 5. The block is a fair walk from the pool and reception (5/10 mins) . Tip - if you want to go out of the complex, turn right out of block 14 for a short cut. Rooms were very big, air con worked brilliantly and bottled water every day was a nice touch. Note that no bath in either bathroom. Pools, bars, restaurants were all good. Best a la carte was the Village. Didn't think much of the Stonegrill for the money. Main restaurant was fine - always found something. Entertainment. Yes it was cheesy but it is free and could be good fun. First choice held beach parties every Friday which were excellent. Well documented incidents in the pools with teenagers. Parents must be so proud of them... Private beach was great as well (although you need shoes in the sea). As a hotel for families with kids, you cannot go wrong here. Kids will enjoy themselves. More

Perfect holiday!

First holiday without mom and dad. Having been lucky enough to travel abroad with my parents every year since 6 months old.. The one without them ended up being the best! The room was stunning with a gorgeous view. We stayed in block 11 above the swim up rooms and this was perfect. Nice and quiet and out the way. Food was amazing and the people in the hotel are so kind and can't do enough for you. Would recommend this hotel to any one. Infact.. My brother and his family have booked to go in March! Hopefully will return in the future fab week! Only thing I'd say is look out for the people selling things round the pool. I paid for a manicure and pedicure and was promised English quality but it was pretty poor. I could have done a better job myself! But obviously this has nothing to do with the hotel.More
