I stayed at the Hilton Sharm Dreams in the first week of June with my boyfriend and had a lovely stay. I would say that the hotel is 5*, some parts might need some work, however- it had big nice rooms, lots of pools, lovely comfy sunbeds by the pool and fantastic service by all the staff.
The hotel is based very near to the centre of Sharm- great location, 15 minute walk to the center and only across the road to the private beach which was ideal for snorkelling, with very comfy sunbeds - (although they are a bit tired, I would recommend management consider replacing them to something a bit newer!)
The room was large, clean and pleasant - huge double bed, lovely big bathroom and a nice sized balcony. Our room was perfect, it overlooked a small pool which was very quiet most of the time. If you can request a room near a pool - do it - some of the rooms looked a bit of a walk away from the reception! Think we were room 4181 which was ideal. Our room was cleaned daily to SUCH a high standard- petals on the bed ect, really appreciated the hardwork the cleaner put in to making our room lovely everyday. Air con took a while to get the room cool but after the first day was pretty good.
We spent most of our time lying by the pool, there are lots of lovely pools around the hotel- with nice comfy sunbeds, complimentary pool towels and waiters that will get you drinks. Luckily there is a mixture aswell, a kids pool, a large pool which played music and where the bar and afternoon snacks were and then other surrounding smaller pools that were nice and quiet- perfect for us.
We did two trips which we booked at the hotel and which I would recommend. A camel ride and then a bedouin camp dinner in the desert which was lovely and scuba diving with the company within the hotel. Both were great days out and I'd recommend - also not too pricy. We also went to the cleo park next door which was quite fun for a few hours- would recommend for families as good for kids too.
The food- I have to admit, the all inclusive food was the main thing with this hotel that I think needs work. As is very often with all inclusives the food did get a bit repetitive. A lot of rice, potatoes with meat or fish or pasta for lunch and dinner. I didn't want to risk getting ill so stayed clear of salad. Also, I wasn't the biggest fan of the dining room- it was large, open and a bit noisy. Despite this, there are two a la carte options - that were both very nice - mexican and lebanese and so that made it not too much of a problem.
Entertainment- hotel did evening entertainment and it was nice being able to have a drink to watch that. Also , the all inclusives drinks are good. They don't water down the soft drinks and the spirits were good quality.
Staff- I think the staff work tirelessly hard at the hotel, they were very polite and very accommodating. We had a bit of a problem mid way through our stay- the room next door was painted and it made our room smell like paint. When I went to reception and explained the manager moved us to another room for the night with the option to stay in permanently if the smell hadn't gone and also gave us a free extra late checkout. I was very happy with this level of service and I could see the manager was trying hard for us not to have our holiday disrupted. He made all his reception staff aware of what had happened and they were very accommodating to us after so that was nice.
The hotel had a gym which we used most days. It was nice, clean and mostly empty.
The casino in the hotel only accepts dollars and dosent exchange your money, so consider that if you want to go there- we ended up not using it because of this.
If your going to this hotel, relax and enjoy your holiday! Like I've mentioned, some things arent perfect but they arent deal breakers of you having a nice all inclusive break! Last time I visited sharm I stayed in the hotel next door- Novotel Beach. Which was a bit nicer, however a good £150 more exspensive.
