Just returned from The Hilton Sharks Bay 29th March. This was our 6th visit to this hotel. We always stay in the old side of the hotel, but this year due to renovation works at the main pool on the old side, we had to stay at the deluxe new side of the hotel. If this had been the first time we stayed here we would have said it was wonderful but we found it a little spread out and impersonal. Having said that the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in block 9 and our room boy Ahmed was lovely he kept our room spotless and always decorated with towel art and flowers. The pool attendants Naaem and Moustafa were always around cleaning up, helping with towels and parasols. The pools, there were 3 of them, were very shallow, just over 1 metre deep were on the whole well kept although there was some mess right in the middle where the vacuum cleaners couldn't reach. Two of the pools had water slides that were great fun ,enjoyed as much by the adults as the children. The third pool is adult only but is one of the unheated pools. The pool bars opened at 10.00 with all the usual drinks, unfortunately Egyptian spirits do leave abit to be desired but there is always something that you can find to drink with some very pleasant cocktails. The Waves Bar served some very acceptable lunchtime snacks, a great improvement on last year. The main restaurant, El Mattam, served an acceptable food selection, not exciting but acceptable, you could always find something that you liked. Samy our waiter was very attentive always making sure that we had drinks and clearing the table as soon as we finished eating. In the Italian Abdulla made sure that we were well looked after, and the food was very good although the helpings were a little small. You could only eat in the Italian once a week on the all inclusive any more than that and it cost extra. There is a free shuttle bus that goes between the new hotel and the sea which runs from 8.00 til late every day, a very welcome ride as it's quite a steep hill back to the new side.
All in all though a very pleasant relaxing holiday that is very good value for money. We shall be returning again next year, hopefully to our prefered old side.
