Western Desert Oases Hotels

Sol Y Mar Pioneers Hotel


  • Facilities here are truly up to international standards
  • A good-size pool (£E50 for nonguest day use) surrounded by manicured lawns


  • The hotel design and decor don't convey any sense of location
  • Bathrooms often dirty
  • Avoid the pool area after dark if you're afraid of bats

Fodor's Review

The salmon-colored Pioneers is the only truly international-style hotel in the oasis, offering amenities such as a comfortable lounge-bar where you can enjoy a drink, and a pool where it takes more than five strokes to get from one end to the other. The styling and design are not sympathetic to the region, however; standards of decor and service are imported from the Nile Valley. Spacious rooms have sitting areas; some have balconies. The hotel's new café across the street offers fabulous sunset views.
