My daughter and I have just returned from a weeks holiday on the new side (deluxe room) of Hilton Sharks Bay. We were a bit apprehensive after reading alot of the reviews on here but were very pleased that most of the negative ones were either personal views and others unfounded criticism in our opinion. We travel abroad at least 3 times a year to different destinations so are fairly seasoned travellers!
Very pleased we chose the new side, but this is just personal choice, the rooms were spacious and clean, we were in block 9000, close to main reception/bars/restaurants, swimming pools weren't too busy, enjoyed the clientelle on this side and I am saying no more on that subject!
Although the old side looked quaint and had lots of little nooks and crannys, it would be a issue for people with mobility problems because on several different levels
The staff are very pleasant and helpful and to be honest take alot of stick from some holidaymakers.
Soho Square is not all that! Full of shops with 'copy' merchandise but it was nice to have a walk out of the hotel.
We had a full body scrub & massage at the spa on the new side, it was brilliant and very reasonable for 750 Egyptian pounds for 2 (negotiate)
The Italian restaurant is lovely, although the menu is a little restrictive but a nice change to be waited upon instead of the norm at the buffets, which incidentally weren't that bad, as long as you like rice and cake for dessert.
We did the quad bikes in the desert, which was fun but wouldn't recommend the bedouin dinner, it is not well organised (sitting around for ages waiting for other groups to arrive) and the dancing goes on and on and on
