We visited the Hilton Sharks Bay Easter 2012. Our room was nice, but not as good as the Hilton Waterfalls (where we had a bed which would have held five people, so I must admit I was a bit disappointed the bed was just 'standard' -I know this sounds like I'm really fussy but I never heard my husband snore once at the Waterfalls due to the distance between us in the bed!)
Anyway the hotel is very nice, we stayed in the new bit and whichever room you get you are right next to one of the pools - there are three pools, two have slides, one has a man made beach (this one is heated) and one is for adults only.
The food is your typical Egyptian - I thought it was very good but my son (aged 11) struggled sometimes. But he didn't starve and always found something to eat.
The hotel is split in to the new part over a road and the old part which is next to the sea. The old part does seem to have more character and I wouldn't mind staying in this bit just for the sea view. There is a very regular bus which takes you from the old to the new/new to the old so if you didn't fancy the walk (which isn't really that far) you have no problem catching the bus which stops anywhere you are.
Snorkeling was excellent off the hotel. We visited Ras Mohammed whilst there and the snorkeling was just as good at the Hilton.
The hotel is a taxi ride from Namma Bay but there a few shops just outside the hotel and a short walk away is Soho Square where there were a few shops and bars and a ice rink (which the kids tried and were the only ones skating ) worth a visit.
I would happily return the this hotel.
