“Pack your bags, this hotel's for you!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

A big thanks to Trip Advisor and all the reviewers for pointing out this wee jem to me in the first place. They deserve their Trip Advisor award. Just back from 2nd stay at Falcon Hills and glad to have gone back. It was more like visiting family than going on a random holiday! The staff are so geniunely friendly you feel like you're coming back just to see them. It might be a 3 star but they make you feel like you're 5 star.

A couple of pointers if you're planning a visit (which you should! Book it right now!!):

*All inclusive is the way to go. We went half board 1st time and AI 2nd. The difference in price is so small there's no point and you will want your free waffles and icecream in the afternoon. Yum!

*Remember mozzie spray - the hotel does use a foggy machine to control the mosquitoes but there will always be some hungry survivours ready to chow down on juicy tourists. But apart from the odd mozzie the hotel is very clean and pest free.

*The hotel taxi is very cheap (watch out for other taxis cause they will charge you x4 his prices and you need to agree prices before you get in them). The 20min drive to Sharks Bay and back was only £14 and it's really worth taking day trips. The driver will come back for you at your specified time (but have the hotel's phone no just in case).

*If you like it quiet, try request a room to the rear of the complex by the smaller pool. The big pool has music during the day and volleyball. If they're not too busy it shouldn't be a problem.

*The hotel is very popular with Egyptian families and Brits during school hols - it gets very busy then so if you prefer it quiet try avoid these times.

*If you struggle with extreme heat then avoid May-October. It can reach the 50s! Even in the shade you could bake a merangue.

*The food is very good in my opinion but it is mostly local cuisine so don't expect burger and chips for tea. You can order this but you'd have to pay (at a reasonable price). It's a lot of healthy veg dishes, stews, rice, fish, pasta and meat. It's also very reasonable to eat out (so I was told).

*The free bus offers 2 beaches. Terazzina beach is free and it's part of a string of sandy beaches. If you like lounging it's ok but for snorkelling you need reef beach. You have to pay a small entry fee but it covers your beds/parasols and the life guards. Deep reef face with many fish. We saw a whale shark there and there was apparently a manta ray. But for the king of beaches you need to get a taxi to El Fanar (about £4 there and back 10 mins ride). The entry fee is £6 but you get a bottle of water and towel for that and absolutely no beach touts. Food and drink aren't allowed but there's a lovely restaraunt that serves pizza/chips/salads etc and prices are cheaper than uk. Really good jetty so even non-snorkellers can see fish on reef flat or can puddle around in shallows. Amazing snorkelling but take care not to go past the red flag at the point cause the current is horrifically strong (wish I'd known that!). You can easily spend the whole day there.

*If you go snorkelling - DO NOT TOUCH OR STAND ON THE CORAL! You will get a smacked bottom if you do...or worse, a mahoosive fine! Osha told us one silly american had to fork out for snapping off a chunk of coral to take home as a souvenier! And unless you plan to do any major snorkelling or diving don't bother with fins - it's easy to break coral with them on.

*When you arrive you will be offered trips by the rep - I highly recommend a trip to Ras Mohammed and it's so cheap for what you get (stunning £3 million boat, cooked lunch and guided reef tours). Non-snorkellers can remain on boat sunbathing while the rest appreciate the 3 dive sites. Watch out for flying fish and dolphins. If you think you might get sea sick take some travel sickness tablets before you go (especially if it's a but windy).

Anyway, what I'm basically trying to say is pack your bags (don't forget your snorkel and mask) and head to Falcon Hills. They didn't get the bargain hotel award for nothing. Enjoy! ;)

Just got back from yet another fantastic holiday to this hotel. The staff are fantastic and always waiting to help, especially Attia, Osama and Tamer. The atmosphere is amazing and the place feels like our second home. We have already booked to come back in October because we know that it will be amazing. The hotel taxi driver Kamal is great, he is a great driver and doesn't rip you off. The jewellery shop across the rad at the viva is great, Adhem (the owner) does some brilliant pieces at great prices. All in all the falcon is one to visit x

Room Tip: The rooms are basic but they are big,clean and comfortable

I have just come back from a wonderful holiday at this hotel. The service is very very good, I wanted for nothing. the hotel is very clean and the food is more than acceptable. The Manager comes round to everyone and asks for their feedback, it is then put into operation immediately. all in all a very good three star hotel.

Room Tip: I would advise to book the rooms by the quiet pool if you want a relaxing holiday.

I visited Falcon Hills over Easter and had a fabulous trip. I've previously already rated it highly as everyone was so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much of a problem, from the guide to the amazing clean towel displays every morning! The most poignant experience actually happened when I returned - I'd left my friend's flippers and my goggles in the spa. Foaud Goergy at reception managed to find someone who offered to bring them back to England where I met them and got my equipment back. The kindness and helpfulness of both parties was incredible. THank you Falcon Hills!

I have just come back from a two week stay at Falcon Hills hotel, what a great place this is. This was my first holiday in Egypt and i went with my younger cousin ( she has written her own review from a youngsters point of view, she also raved about this hotel). The staff were so helpful, i have a mobility problem, and at all meal times every time i went to carry anything to my table, one of the staff appeared from nowhere to carry my plate, they just could not do enough for you.
Then there was the entertainment provided by the animation team, the three man team made sure there was something for every one of every age, i even won a prize at bingo, they worked so hard to keep people happy, starting at 10am with an energetic wake up dance, and continuing all through the day.
I can not recommend this hotel any higher, it was brilliant, and hopefully i will be able to do a return visit.

I would like to start by saying wot a lovely atmosphere at falcon hills. I travelled in a party of ten, ranging from small children to a oap, we all agreed that the staff was brilliant especially tamer, Mohammed, Omar and Liam. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was ok, just wot you would expect on all inclusive, the pool area was a bit tired but clean and tidy. The rooms were clean and tidy, bert the cleaner was lovely. Would like to say a big thankyou to the doc, who treated us for mozzie bites n one of us a pooly stomach. Will deffinatly be going back next year
