We booked the Hilton Sharks Bay because it was a Hilton and thought it would live up to the name. There are many pro's for this hotel: extremely comfy beds, clean rooms with towel art every day (the monkey was my fave), the adult only pool, the snorkelling and fish in the private beach, the entertainment team- Mido and Mina in particular (thanks boys) and the beer.
However, we are extremely big foodies and enjoy a nice meal on holiday. Apart from the Italian restaurant (which if you tip well you can get into again), the restaurants and food were really not good. They were packed and dirty and the food was consumed for survival purposes only. After a few days we both became rather unwell which lasted ALL holiday. The Egyptian holiday makers were very rude and would push in front, use their hands as servers and waste bucket loads of food at every meal.
Luckily, it did not spoil our holiday but we will definitely not be returning and would advise others to go elsewhere (perhaps an English only resort where everyone will share good manners). Another piece of advice if you have already booked would be to tip waiters, bar staff, pool attendants, servers, etc on day 1, it was evident who had. Good luck!
