I initially chose this hotel for because there are 2 gyms. Turns out One is pretty well equipped and one is a small cardio and core area. I asked to upgrade to the deluxe side and was told it would be £15 extra per night. I had a look at the room on the deluxe side and there was no difference so I decided against this. Lets start with the positives. Good facilities, gym pools, beach etc. Are of a good standard. No queues & clean rooms Sounds good right? So why does it get only a 2 rating from me? Have you heard the one about the italian resteraunt which can't cook a pizza? I wish there was a punchline. El Rustico is awful. In one night I sent back 3 pizzas which had the consistency of a runny omelette and a fillet steak which had the texture of a smoldering tyre. I then ended up walking out The food in the buffet is inedible with very few fresh ingredients,the wine tastes like vinagar and avoid the salad if you don't want to get sick as it is all washed with chemicals. Massively below usual hilton standards If you're going to stay here go for the room only option and get your food and drink from elsewhere. All inclusive option is a complete waste of money

This was a great hotel with good staff. We were "upgraded" when when we arrived to the deluxe side of the hotel, I later worked out that they like to keep the Russian and British separated, with their own bars and restaurants, whether this is a good or bad thing I will leave to you to diside. The food was good for an all inclusive buffet, with different themes every night, and unlike some hotels I have stayed in you can actually tell the difference. It was just me and my 6 year old son travelling and he always found something he liked to eat. The main family bar was good, service was amazing considering there was only two bartenders serving upwards of 150 people, never waited more than a couple of minutes for a drink. If you are looking for a quite drink after dinner the Olympic bar (main bar) is probable not for you but across the lobby there was an adult only bar which looked very nice, didn't use this bar as I was on my own with my son. As for the beach, it is small but there was plent of space on the terraces above the beach, seamed to be much quieter after lunch than in the morning. There is a pontoon to get out to the reef which was, around the fringes, average for the Red Sea. The sea floor does drop off very fast, may 50m away from the end of the pontoon you can not see the bottom, which if you are nervous of deep water can be a bit off putting, luckily my son was fine with it and we saw fish that I have never seen before in three previous trips to Egypt, some of which were bigger than my son, very exciting for the both of us. The rooms where very nice, modern and spacious. We were at the far end of the hotel, as far away from the beach as you can get, but it was only a 10 minute walk, if that was ever too much for us there was an open sided bus shuttle bus to the beach every 10-15 minutes. Looking on Google Earth before we went I was a little concerned about the hotel backing on to the airport, being at that end of the hotel we could see the planes taking off from out the front door, but I can honestly say that they never woke us up or stopped us sleeping, in fact even with the patio doors open you could barely hear them. All in all this was what I was expecting standards and service wise from a Hilton, very good.

Overall the hotel is average. The rooms are clean and the hotel is in good shape. The staff are very friendly and always go the extra mile to make sure you are happy with everything. Could not have been more impressed by their quality of service. However, the food serviced at this hotel is awful. There is nothing appetising to choose from and nothing tasted nice. Both myself and my boyfriend had sore stomachs and it soon became apparent it was from the hotel food because of its poor quality. Because of the bad food I decided to treat my boyfriend to a romantic dinner on the beach at the hotel costing 600le. Since we had to pay for this meal I expected the food to be a lot better. When we arrived our waiter Talaat was amazing, he created such a lovely scenery and we were very impressed. However when the food appeared it became apparent it was the same bad quality as the hotels restaurant. It was absolutely disgusting. They did comp the meal but it is still out of order that they even served us such awful food. This experience with such bad stomachs has turned us both off of returning to Egypt again.
