Amy Adejokun Section editor

Part of the Spanish hotel chain, Sol Melia, the Sol Cyrene is great for guests wishing to spend maximal amounts of time outdoors. The pool and the beach areas are pleasant although the interior of the hotel isn't very inspiring. The hotel feels secluded which is a good quality to have in the area. The beach is one of the best we have seen in Sharm although it can get a little crowded.

    Location 8.1 /10

    The Sol Cyrene is located 7 km from Sharm el Sheikh International Airport. The hotel is facing Tiran Island which has one of the most famous coral reefs and is surrounded by spectacular views of the mountains of Sinai desert. The beach is just 400 meters from the main building connected by a promenade or shuttle bus.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The accommodation blocks are not particularly attractive being rectangular and having three floors. For friends or families connecting rooms are available. Every room has its own private balcony or terrace. The rooms have all the basic mod-cons such as individual control air-conditioning, direct dial telephone, TV with satellite channels, a mini fridge (filled upon request and at an extra cost). The rooms are spacious as are the bathrooms. The décor is uninspiring. The bathrooms have a selection of own-brand toiletries and all are equipped with bathtubs. Most rooms have good views but 10% so the guest must specify the view upon booking.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Opened in 2007, the hotel has been well maintained. It is close to the quiet street which deserves the hotels in Montazah. Through the lobby there is the main pool surrounded by well-kept gardens and the white three floor accommodation blocks. The main building looks however a little imposing which goes against creating a relaxing atmosphere. The outdoor terrace looks pleasant and well maintained. The hotel comprises of 207 rooms overlooking the sea, pool and garden. The hotel has five pools altogether; there are two within the main hotel complex, a separate kids' pool and two pools by the beach which is a rare feature for hotels in the area. The hotel is built in such a way to make the guests feel alone as opposed to sandwiched between neighbouring hotels. It is therefore a pleasant hotel to spend a holiday despite it being fairly basic.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant looks clean and well organised. Meals here are fairly pleasant and varied. The restaurant has a buffet system. The food is of a fairly good quality - the desserts are especially tasty. The restaurant staff is also very friendly.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beach is just a couple of minutes away from the main hotel complex via shuttle bus. The walk to the beach isn't long either and is straightforward. The beach is not organised in rigid lines of sun loungers which makes the atmosphere a little more casual although it can feel a little cramped. The beach is however sandy and the waters are stupefying. Closer to the water the beach can be a little rocky however. The beach here is ideal for everyone: shallow enough for kids to play without parents worrying too much about safety, the jetty isn't too long giving good direct access to the coral for snorkelers and there are also small lagoon formations which are good for swimming.

    To know

    The Sol Cyrene Hotel is part of the Spanish hotelier chain Sol Melia as is the neighbouring hotel, Sol Charm (see our review). When we visited there were still some areas under construction (for example behind the kids' club and by the pools close to the beach) which is an eyesore. The gym looks fairly clean and is free for guests to use. The spa is well maintained although it is a little dark and needs a little spruce up (facilities here are at an extra charge). The guests here are mainly English and Italian.

      Of an imposing size, the Reef Oasis is an establishment located closest to the underwater natural park of Ras Mohammed. It is ideally suited to families wanting to be entertained (the hotel has nearly 40 animators) and athletes who wish to have an active vacation.

      The Crowne Plaza is a grand hotel offering tranquility, which is very pleasant for families. The one negative point is the main restaurant's bad reputation.

      Located along the coast in Naama Bay, the Marriott Beach was one of the first hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Opened in 1996, this hotel offers its customers many water sports and the opportunity to bask on the beach. The facilities make for comfortable and quality services. An ideal hotel in which to relax or practice sports.

      • Location 7.84

      The Falcon Hills is another small, budget option in the Hadaba zone of Sharm el Sheikh. It is a compact, rather quiet place which is suitable for friends, couples or families where the needs of each would be modestly met. Expect nothing exceptional at this hotel, but here and there are little touches which stand out making the place a little more appealing. If money is a little tight, or you are looking for a cheap base for pursuing activities such as diving or lazing around, the Falcon Hills is a good bet.

You can take any aspect of the hotel, its rooms, its spa, its eateries, its views or its staff and you'll find everything is top draw. If it is top of the range you are after for in Sharm then you can't go far wrong in choosing the Royal Oasis, perfect for couples and families looking for the very best in service and facilities in a setting to die for.

      • Location 8.1

      The Tropicana Azure Club, not to be confused with the Tropicana Grand Azure just across the road, is not on the beach but does have a very pleasant pool area planted with palm trees. The pool itself is large, so a good choice for guests with children who are after a little sunbathing with peace of mind. The rooms are of a good standard but the food may leave some guests disappointed.

      The Jaz Belvedere Hotel is easily one of Sharm el Sheikh best quality resorts. With its beautiful interiors and very well maintained exteriors, the Belvedere is more of a hotel than a resort. Directly on the beach, the hotel is small enough to retain intimacy and large enough not to feel claustrophobic after a week. The Belvedere is definitely one of our favourites.

      An all-round good quality hotel compared to most hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. The extension of the Hilton Shark's Bay is neat and well maintained and is separate from the original part of the resort. There is also nothing Egyptian about the place; one could be anywhere in the world. This part of the hotel lacks in atmosphere but is relaxing and guests are guaranteed a fairly good quality room.

Perky staff, a beautifully kept environment and convivial atmosphere make this a natural choice for both couples and families. This mid- to high-end establishment is extremely comfortable and is recommended wholly by Easyvoyage.

      The Oriental Rivoli is without doubt one of the classiest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Its sumptuous decoration must be the finest in the resort and all of its services exude quality, from its staff to its food. Best suited for couples or groups of friends, due to its lack of animation or a kids club, it is the perfect place for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation. Recommended whole-heartedly by Easyvoyage!
