Amy Adejokun Section editor

Sol y Mar Sam Suites is very a small simple resort which doesn't have an all-inclusive formula. This is a great place for those looking for a little piece and quiet away from the activity mania of the large resorts. The fact that there isn't much to do here encourages the guest to explore the surrounding area. For an activity filled day there is always a shuttle us to the neighbouring Mirabel Resort with beach, pools, music and the like.

    Location 4.0 /10

    Located towards the very end of Nabq Bay, it is in a relatively quiet area where resorts are sprouting up quickly. It is a second line hotel and therefore is not on the beach but a shuttle bus runs to the neighbouring Mirabel Park beach.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    The rooms are extremely simple yet very stylish. Decorated by the owner's wife, the furniture is contemporary with a touch of Egyptian taste. The bed linen is of good quality. As the hotel is new, everything is spick and span. All the rooms have a balcony or terrace and are equipped with (old generation) televisions, fridges (filled upon request and at an extra cost). The bathrooms all have showers and soap comes in a pump attached to the wall, so if you like your toiletries, bring your own. Otherwise the hotel also rents out studios as well as family rooms.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Upon arrival the hotel doesn't look much with its small driveway and pale pink entrance hall, but once inside through the lobby and out into the pool area it is extremely pleasant, especially because this is possibly the smallest hotel in Sharm el Sheikh. Small but extremely restful, this is a veritable little haven of peace. There isn't much going on here and it can feel a little isolated from the rest of the area but this acts as a good motivation factor to get out and explore the area. If however what you are after is an activity-packed, booze-filled holiday, Sol y Mar Sham Suites is not for you.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel has a main restaurant which is stylish and pleasant. There is no all-inclusive system here; the restaurant is la carte. There is also a snack bar on the terrace by the pool.

    Beach 5.70 /10

    The beach is shared with the neighbouring Mirabel complex which is owned by the same company. The advantage of the beach here is the shallow water which is good for children and beach dwellers wishing to sunbathe while staying cool. There is also beach volley.

    To know

    The hotel, opened in 2009 has been finished to a very high standard. A Sol y Mar hotel, it belongs to the owner of several hotel chains such as Jaz and Iberostar. The owner, the talented businessman, Mr El Sheti, has also recently bought the German chain, Steigenberger as well as one of the leading travel companies in the world, Travco. The special touch is in the high standard finish of the hotels which is especially true of the Jaz hotel chain. Also in Sharm el Sheikh, the Jaz Mirabel Beach, Jaz Mirabel Park, Jaz Mirabel Club, Jaz Belvedere, and the Bab el Shams which is soon to come. The Jaz chain is by far one of the best in the area. Not only are the hotels beautiful but the facilities are varied and the food is of a good standard, all of which makes for a pleasant experience. For full details on the chain, click here.

      The Jaz Mirabel Club is a good quality resort with a village feel, a great beach, and a fairly fresh and elegant main restaurant deserving merit for its good quality food, variety and cleanliness. Part of a complex of three Jaz hotels altogether, the Mirabel Club itself, is relatively small and thus has an intimate atmosphere; however, all the expected facilities can be found within the complex. Green and pleasant, Mirabel Park is ideal for couples wanting a little peace and quiet but also wanting the choice of lots of activities available within the rest of the complex.

      Behind a lobby which desperately needs a refurbishment, hides a fantastic aqua park! Ideal for families, the Park Inn also has two main pools away from the water slide madness for guests needing a little peace and quiet. Although the resort has some good outdoor facilities, the interiors could do with being a little cleaner.

      A surprisingly very attractive resort with all the amenities a guest should expect from a holiday in the sun. Whilst retaining the Egyptian touch, the Laguna Vista Beach resort is elegant and relaxing whilst staying extremely varied in its bars and places for guests to relax, giving the area a real village feel. One of the most, if not the most attractive resort we have visited, the Laguna Vista Beach is definitely in our top 5.

      Very small and intimate, the Laguna Vista Garden is perfect to get away from it all. Guests stay in quaint round private villas planted around a green flowery garden. More of a hotel than a resort, the Laguna Vista Garden is ideal for couples or families looking to spend some quality time together relaxing around the pool.

      The Oriental Resort is a relaxing version of a large resort. Its gardens divide up the large concrete buildings making the stay more pleasant. There is a spa worth mentioning for its high quality treatments and good organisation. The Oriental is ideal for a week-long stay with the family or a group of friends. Couples may be seeking a little more peace and intimacy.

      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.

      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!
