I stayed at the Hilton Dreams from the 8th - 15th May 2012 as a solo traveller. I arrived at around midday, expecting to wait till 2pm to check in but was greeted very nicely and made to feel very welcome by Yasser Kammel and the other check in staff.
I was told that I would only have to wait 10 minutes and I was given a cooling fruit cocktail while i waited. The check in staff were very helpful & informative.
Although this was my first trip to the Hilton Dreams, the receptionist did recognise that I had stayed at all the other Hilton Hotels in Sharm.
I was given a very nice room (number 1105) which over looked the main pool and was very close to reception. The complex overall was very nice & kept in excellent condition.
I was given 2 bottles of water every day in my room plus there were complimentary tea & coffee making facilities. I was also given a complimentary fruit bowl which was a nice touch.
The bed was comfortable & clean, there was plenty of storage and the bathroom was clean with a shower over the bath. The room was modern and cleaned to a high standard.There was a good choice of film channels on the T.V as well.
There was a huge choice of food at the main buffet restaurant for breakfast. There really is something for everyone!
If you don't see what you want just ask. The staff are very happy to help.
I ate plenty of fruit and salads and other local dishes and never suffered with a bad stomach. They obviously keep high standards of hygiene in the Hilton's kitchens.
I was really happy to see that the restaurants are non smoking as I personally don't like to breathe in smoke while I am eating!
I also ate at the pool bar, the food was freshly cooked and of a high standard. The waiters were very nice and friendly.
I only stayed bed & breakfast at the Hilton Dreams as I prefer to eat out & about in a variety of local restaurants, but I'm sure the half board or All Inclusive options would be great.
Again if you don't see what you would like, just ask! The staff are very willing to help.
The beach is a 5 minute walk across the road, through the sister hotel, the Hilton Fayrouz. The beach is shared by the 2 hotels and towels are provided at the beach. The Hilton has the longest stretch of beach in Naama Bay. There are plenty of fish to be seen in the shallows and the fish & coral get better the further you swim out.
There are plenty of sun loungers and there is a beach bar and toilets are next to the reception area of the Hilton Fayrouz.
I spent quite a few days by the large main pool in the Dreams which was very pleasant, the only drawback I found was that I was going for breakfast at approx 7.30-8am and two thirds of the sunbeds had towels on them reserving them and a lot of the time it wasn't until 10.30am before most of them actually had people using them. So all the best spots were taken up.
The animation team were very lively & friendly, aqua gym etc. I also had a massage next to the pool which was good.
The location of the Hilton Dreams is excellent, it's just a few minutes walk to all the hussle & bustle of Naama Bay. My tip is to cross the main road, walk through the grounds of the Hilton Fayrouz then you will find the beach front promenade which is very pleasant to walk along. There are many bars & restaurants to choose from in Naama bay and I enjoyed eating out somewhere new each night. It also worth catching a local bus or taxi to the Old Market, just 10 minutes drive away.
Many Sharm hotels are in remote areas that mean you have to catch a taxi to get anywhere so do your research on where you are planning to stay. I don't think the Hilton Dreams can be beaten on location.
I was also impressed at the security of the Hilton Dreams, most Sharm hotels have security guards & scanners that you walk though and I felt very safe staying at this hotel.
Most of the staff I encountered were very smiley and helpful and I felt that I was valued as a guest and a loyal Hilton customer. I think it is worth paying extra to stay at a hotel with such excellent customer service. I didn't have any problems during my stay, but I feel confident that any issues would have been dealt with swiftly & professionally as i had regular calls asking me if everything was ok.
I would happily return to the Hilton Dreams and would highly recommend this hotel to family & friends. I have visited Sharm 12 times and the Hilton Dreams is up there in my top favourite hotels!
This will definatly be my first choice hotel next time i visit.
