Here is my review:
The hotel is divided into two parts, the main building and the extension. The main building is adjacent to the sea and has the main restaurant and an Egyptian and Italian restaurants too, and an average size swimming pool. While the extension is across the street and has a very big swimming pool (3 connected pools to be honest) and one of the pools has artificial beach - just sand for the kids.
Location: Far from the center of Sharm but taxis are easily available in front of the hotel, and if you are going to a club that you bought its tickets from the animation team then you'll get a free ride.
Check in: was smooth and quick for me and my friends, but my brother and his wife had to wait THREE hours to get their room.
Rooms: rooms are generally nice but there are old rooms and new furnished rooms. Some rooms are at the third floor and there is no elevator so make sure you don't get such a room if you don't like taking the stairs.
Sea: The beach is rocky and very small and narrow.
The main restaurant is very nice and food is good.
The Egyptian restaurant is horrible and has a weekly menu, so unless you're going to stay more than a week you will find the same menu every day.
The Italian restaurant, I haven't tried it.
Snacks: Just cheese and nothing but cheese.
Staff: Staff is the worst element in this hotel. They are rude and not welling to help at all. Once we were in the main restaurant and one of my friends asked the waiter to get him a cup of water but he told him "Go get it by yourself"!!!!
Generally the hotel itself as a place is good but certainly I'm not going again until there is a new management with highly trained staff. It is not what I've expected from Hilton.
