Falcon Inn

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 1, 2005

We were told that this hotel was new, but it is not, it was remodeled in the fall of 2004(cheap remodel).
This hotel is not on the beach, but it does have free access to two beaches, which is good , because the "beach" nearest to the hotel is on a cliff and there is only snorkeling along the edge of the cliff for swimming.The other beach is about 3km away, but there is a free buss from the hotel. It is on a bay near old town and is nice( much better than Naama Bay) but you must walk about .75km to the mouth of the bay if you want to snorkel there. (The bottom is mostly sand in the bay)There is also waterskiing(100LE),wakeboarding(100LE), and glass bottom boats(35LE?) here also.
This hotel only includes breakfast in the price and dinner was about 80LE(egyptian pounds). They only serve buffet style european meals which were good (3 to 4 out of 5), but the food service and staff was excellent.
Unlike the food staff, the front desk was marginal and the cleaning staff was nonexistant. Room service was only a linnen change and some times they didn't get to it untill 18:00 and on two occasions we had to air out the room from the b.o. of the cleaners. I smashed a mosquito on the ceiling and we were taking bets on how many years it would be there !!!!
Yassin the pool/courtyard assistant was an excellent person and a great person for advice about where to go and how much you should pay for things in town. The courtyard and pool were nice, but the pool water was bitterly cold, not even children swam in the pool.
With the exception of the front desk, I found all of the staff very friendly and honest, even the cleaning staff, dispite thier cleaning skill. The only annoyance I had with all of the staff is that they WILL hit on your wife or girl friend if she is under 50,with kids or not. Sharm is a tourist compound and almost all of the Egyptians in the whole city are young single men, and only married Egyptian women are allowed there, so I guess that they can't be blamed too much for that.

Unique Quality: Like it explains perfectly in most travel guides, Sharm is only good for the sun and the water. There is no other reason to visit it, other than maybe people watching. I doubt you will ever find a place where you will hear so many languages spoken. Because of the travel packages, each hotel and beach is like a different country, with Naama Bay being the E.U.

Directions: South of Naama bay, batween Naama Bay and Old Sharm Town. Close to Dolphinella and the Ritz Carlton Hotel
