... war. He quipped that naming Operation Desert Shield in 1990 as the First Gulf war was somewhat arbitrary as there had been wars in the region for hundreds of years. Since the Americans had taken charge of numbering the wars he wondered how many more they had planned! The second lecture was by Terry Waite who really is an excellent speaker. The theatre was packed to capacity and had a pin dropped you could have heard it for the whole 45 minutes. He had finished the last lecture in ...
Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...

So we have armed military guards - eight of them, I think. One military vehicle is in front of us (to hit the land mines first?), and one is behind. I would be nervous, except that I like a little adventure, and our tour guide, Bruce Porter, is giving a really interesting lecture on Cain, Abel, and priesthood authority as we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Sharm Waterfalls Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
My husband, teenage sons and myself have recently return from this hotel after too short a week's stay.
Absolutley Fabulous, pure relaxation, I did not get off my backside for 7 days apart to go quad biking in the desert, great fun.
Excellent in all respects. The highlights were 1) Stunning resort 2) Very attractive rooms 3) Staff the most helpful I have known 4) Didn't try buffet other than for breakfast which was excellent, but the a la carte restuarants were excellent.
A thouroughly excellent hotel.
I stayed at this hotel with my wife from 6-13 March 2005, which is advertised as 5 star. The hotel has a lovely tiered setting overlooking the Red Sea and has its own private beach. Around the hotel are a number of hugh swimming pools surrounded by luxury padded reclining sunbeds, bars and sun umbrellas. The grounds of the hotel are extremely well maintained and very beautiful. There is a waterfall running down from the hotel towards the beach with a couple of ponds. The accommodation is set in blocks of about 20 rooms (about 400 for the whole hotel) with 50% having a sea view. Our room was near the reception facing away from the sea. It still had nice views across the grounds looking towards mountains. We were able to enjoy lovely sunsets. The grounds are fumigated at dawn and dusk against insects especially mosquitos. I only got bit twice during the week which is good for me as its usually lots more. The hotel has a buffet restaurant (for half board residents which we used) and about three restaurants which you can upgrade too. A pint of local lager is £2 and a small glass of wine is £3.50 (these prices include taxes). Not exactly cheap but you are in a moslem country and its difficult to get alcohol. You can only buy from local duty free shops (3 in the area) if you do so within 24 hours of arrival. Supermarkets only sell alcohol free beer. There were several supermarkets about 100 yards from the hotel. A can of pop was 20p. Two bottes of water and a large bag of crisps cost us 90p total !!! It shows how much the hotel is making out of its guests whom they ban from bringing food or drink from outside.
Just got back from the Hilton Sharm Waterfalls - what a great hotel!!
The complex is a little outside of the centre, which is brilliant if you want to get away from it and Naama Bay is only a short taxi ride away.
Definitley recommend anyone staying here.
This hotel ticks all the boxes for a well presented and managed international resort type hotel.
We booked a holiday to the Hilton Waterfalls hotel as a last minute deal, hoping for a relaxing holiday in a nice hotel. This is exactly what we got - the hotel was fabulous with great pools, excellent breakfasts and extremely helpful and pleasant staff. We went in January and the weather was lovely - about 22oC every day with a light breeze - just warm enough for relaxing in the sun or snorkelling in the Red Sea admiring the fish swimming beside you! The hotel is about 3 miles from Naama Bay but there is a bus that runs from the hotel hourly in the evening. We ate at the hotel most of the time - the Italian and Lebanese restaurants were both delicious - and went into Naama Bay twice. It was quite lively although there are a lot of vendors trying to get you into their shops ALL the time. Old Sharm is even worse for vendors and we didn't like it at all. We also went to Cairo and the Pyramids for a day trip, which we organised through our holiday rep. The trip was a long day, even though we flew to Cairo, but well worth a visit and our tour guide was excellent. All in all, we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely go back again.
Super Room - loved this resort
We had a fantastic family sized room at swimming pool level at the Hilton Sharm Waterfalls. It was immaculately furnished, very clean and comfortable with two double beds and a large bathroom. Our terrace looked out to the large swimming pool. The pools were a bit chilly but the children enjoyed them. We tried various restaurants which were a bit variable to be honest but the breakfast buffet was very good. The spa was good and reasonably priced. Its out of town - you have to get a cab but this is not a problem and its fun to go down in the evenings and eat out and enjoy the shops and shisha cafes. Can't really fault the place and would go there again. The beach was poor as it is right on the reef and you can snorkel - with care and good shoes.
From the moment we arrived to the day we left, the staff couldn't do enough for us. They were always cheerful, often cheeky and turned our stay in a very good hotel into a top experience. The hotel itself is of typically modern Egyptian, somewhat gaudy decor, was immaculately maintained and very clean. Breakfast and evening meal times were very flexible and the food in general good. The variety offered at breakfast in particular was excellent. Activities were fairly low key, with aquagym, aerobics and belly dancing classes, but then the hotel was only about one-third full when we went (5-12 Dec). There is a health club with small gym and massage services, all of which you have to pay for. Similarly the tennis court needs booking and there is an approx £2 charge per hour - be warned that for much of the time the court is in use for coaching Italians from the Blu Club which is in the grounds.
Wonderful waterfalls resort
What a holiday, the best yet. We were greeted with smiling faces, welcoming words and a fantastic room. The resort is clean, well maintained, and the people are so friendly. The service is excellent and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Facilities are very good but there was not a lot to do for the young children, apart from the pools which were excellent. The food was good and you could have whatever you wanted-even have it bought upto your room-even egg and chips! If you want a nice friendly, relaxing holiday this is the place to be. The worst part of the holiday was having to come home, but at least we will be able to go back next year.
