We also want to see the Valley of Kings, but we wish to stay on Waterfalls resort due to the service you offer and we love this hotel. Because of this we would like to take a trip from your hotel to Luxor, Aswan and Valley of Kings.

We missed some of the staff working at the hotel last year: Aladin, Mohir and Samar, hope to see you soon.
This year we had some problems with the air condition for 3 days. Because of this we had to change room 3l times. But Mina in the reception helped us by changing room for us and saved our vacation.
Positive emotions till now too much, but if briefly, had a rest in this hotel of 10 days from August, 18 till August, 27th:
1.hotel-it is located near to the airport so reached not for long, and on a trip stared on the parties so the transfer has passed imperceptibly
2.territory-it is delightful beautiful, the abundance of greens pleases an eye, falls cause only delight, in very pleasantly evening simply to sit and look at this beauty, thanks landscape designers, have tried
3.service-as well as everywhere in Egypt-slowly, but it is; in number always purely, always there is a water, pure towels
4.food-for me personally always was from what to choose, many various fruit, desserts (farewell a diet)
5.entertainment-special thanks a command of animators, they to miss did not give us, simply good fellows, thanks them for rest!!! If to you not laziness to read, to me not laziness to list:
Hamdy-chief of animators, the highly professional person, is capable to leave competently and imperceptibly even the most awkward situation on a stage having beaten it as a joke (such it is given not to everyone, will agree); provokate a smile of the spectator one only a voice, as a whole gains, big to it thanks for organization Animation Team!
Wido-guy-spark, very cheerful,like fidget,affable with excellent sense of humour, a unconditional star of evening shows together with Mondy, Valya and Jamaica about which I shall tell below, thanks it!
Mondey-cheerful, bright, positive person, sense of humour constantly competes with Wido and their forces are equal, thanks for him!
Valentina-girl-lighter, cheeful optimist, always with a charge of vivacity and a sonorous voice, it will not allow you to lie simply on the sun, and in evening shows it one of stars of animation, thanks for her!
Jamaica-radiates a positive and friendliness, very talented young man, one of stars of animation, thanks for him!
Lena, Julia, Laura-remarkable little girls, " sportswomen, komsomolwomen and simply beauties "(russian joke), thanks them!
Amgad-DJ,the full member of a command of animators, with remarkable musical taste a differing variety, for 10 days was not any melody which personally would irritate me or would cast boredom, thanks for him!
6.beach-coral reeves if wish to get the sea-go on a pontoon, to us with the sister was laziness and we were limited to pool with sea water (sybarites-victims of a civilization)
7.about children-I can tell nothing, was not interested (as went without children in view of their absence) besides that for them there are superficial pools ("splash pools") which for a day strongly get warm and it is possible to not be afraid, that the child will catch a cold and certainly evening animation with Valya from a command of stars Animation Team.
A general impression about hotel-is remarkable!!!
Very nice staf and very god standard. The food was god. meny restuarants
Unique Quality: fresch water and clean round the pools. great wiew over the red see. Close shoping
Since our trip was arranged by a travel company in Norway, we stayed at Hilton Waterfalls for a week. This hotel is a luxury 5-star hotel (I think), with great staff and close to beach/town. We stayed in the apartments, not the hotel-rooms. With so many swimmingpools you almost have a private one to each room, this is great if you do not want to share space with kids and/or other distractions.
I think it is very expencive if you have not booked through a travel company, as they bargain a lot on the fixed prices.
Would definitely stay here again, but as I said this is probably not a budget hotel compared to those downtown.
Unique Quality: Many pools
Close to beach/town
Agree with all the other comments. This hotel was wonderful, immaculatly kept grounds, pools and services. Standard of room (1102) at the bottom by the main pool area superb. Staff excellent, always smiling and helpful. Food generally good but highly recommend the Fish restaurant at the bottom of the hotel overlooking the sea. Number of tips..... the local supermarket is much cheaper than the minibar, so go there for water soft drinks crisps and small gifts. They also sell snorkling gear much cheaper than in the hotel. Across the road on the next junction by what looks like Brighton Pavillion !!! there is a off-licence. Wine here was 1/3rd of the price in the hotel at £5 a bottle. Most of the gifts are tat in the shops and serious hassle.
We took a days snorkling with Ocean explorers who have an office in the hotel at the bottom of the complex. This was a really good day out with excellent stopping places, lunch and drinks thrown in.
The hotel when we were there was full of Russian and Eastern Europeans who were at times boorish and rude to everyone espcially the staff and towels reserving sunbeds started going out at 6am!!! The sun goes down after 3.30/4pm so get up early to grab your best spot. The little beaches were always very full by 8am. The bottom pool area had good staff and an excellent island cafe.
I would highly recommend the Waterfalls for a relaxing chill out holiday.
Be warned the airport departure lounge is cramped very full and expensive. Its being replaced but when...??
Unique Quality: Pools, staff, facilities, rooms
Very baeutifull hotel built on a hill with the reception/foyer/restaurants at the top. The rooms are all spread down the hillside and a waterfall runs down between them. There is a fenicular railway/elevator that runs up and down the hillside which is very cool.
Unique Quality: There are three different pool areas. The bottom pool is big and is where the kids pools are and where most activities take place so it is quite active. The top pool is a lot more chilled out and has a bar/snack bar that you can swim up to. There is another pool at the front of the hotel beside the tennis courts and gym/spa. The hotel has its own beaches and a reef too. There is a floating pier out to the reef and you can jump in and go snorkelling. It is really amazing how much life there is even at a hotel reef. I saw lion fish, puffers, baracuda, tuna, parrot fish and lots more! There is a really good italian restaurant in the main foyer, along with a lebanese and the main buffet restaurant. Prices are very good considering its a 5 star hotel. You can get a pizza and a drink from the pool bar for 40LE (£4)! And the restaurants, room service and mini bar are just as reasonable... superb!
Directions: El Fanar Street. About 10 mins drive from Nama Bay. 40LE taxi ride (£4). There is also a shuttle bus from the hotel ever hour which is 6LE (60p) each way.
I realized I had made the right choice of accomodation as soon as I walked into the lobby. It was light and airy and very welcoming.
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and shampoo contitioner and body lotion are replaced daily or as they are used.
Practically all rooms have a sea view and air conditioning is operational throughout the premises.
The room boys work endlessly to make everything perfect. I had a different design made from towels every day for a fortnight. From swans to flowers to hearts - each day was a rich experience in their dedication just to ensure a pleasant stay for all. Fawzy, our senior housekeeper was fantastic and always visited us each day to ensure our holiday was as fabulous as possible.
You dont need to raise a finger at the Hilton, their aim to to serve you.
They reminded me of this every time I tried to pour a drink!
Unique Quality: The jetty on the main beach provides a good view of marine life for those who cannot swim.
Hotel staff are polite and friendly and always eager to please.
Many tour operators use the hotel making excursions an uncomplicated process.
Security at the Waterfalls is definitely a plus point, you must walk through a metal detector to gain access.
Directions: The hotel is located at El Fanar road, about 5 minutes walk from the old lighthouse and the Renaissance Hotel. Naama bay and Old Sharm town are about 5 minutes in a taxi.
We didn't try the top main restaurant for an evening meal but did enjoy a lesuirely breakfast there. The staff were very attentive with my coffee cup being kept full at all times (very important to me).
In the evenings we ate at one of the 3 a la carte restaurants and all of them were very good. There is a lebanese restaurant outside by the pool which serves great food but the prawns are a little pricey, but the lebanese food was superb and very well priced. The italian is nice but the best for us was the Latinos bar. The main barman was Ezzet who not only was attentive but kept people entertained with various little tricks. The menu in there whilst limited was good.
With the hotel being split the pool in the upper half is reserved for a quiet atmosphere with a swim up bar for lunch. Again very attentive and friendly staff.
The lower pools (3) are much more for the active types and speaking italian would be a disticnt advantage as a lot of the all inclusive guests come from there so it is centred round them.
There is also a cafe set on an island in the middle of the pool although not a swim up you can walk across the bridge and enjoy a nice lunch.
If you want to venture out then there are supermarkets (turn right out of hotel gates) a short walk away. There is also what looks like Ali Baba's palace over the road but we avoided what looked like a tourist trap.
Taxi's are cheap and plentiful in Egypt and their habit of honking at you can get a bit wearing. It's about LE15 to Sharm (£1.50) and LE 25 (£2.50) to Nama Bay. Don't forget to pre-agree your price before hand.
Nama Bay is all bright lights and noise with a multitude of restaurants ranging from Hard Rock Cafe through to rooftop Lebanese.
Overall if you are looking for a hotel where you can chill out for a week and have a reasonably varied eating menu then would recommend a week here.
Unique Quality: The hotel is set into the side of a slope with the main hotel & reception at the top, rooms down the slope and at the bottom 3 pools and the beach. These are all served by a funicular (a kind of sloping lift)
The rooms are very well appointed with a sitting area as well as a balcony and all have a sea view. We had a room half way down and from talking to others this seemed to be a prime position as it avoided the noise at both ends.
In the hotel there is a bank but if you want to use your ATM card, then it's a bit of hike (out of hotel right and then left and ages down the road). Would probally be easier to use the ATMs when you are out and about.
It is The one of Best hotels in the area. Really great experience
Unique Quality: You will find more then 7 pools, great food, snorkeling, and much more
Directions: 10 KM south from Naama Bay
One of the choices on our Latvian package tour, the Waterfalls is outside of the main hotel "ghetto" of Naama Bay. Quiet, child friendly, with beautiful view of the Red Sea
Unique Quality: 6 pools, a funicular joining the main lobby with the other room wings and the pool area, a small beach with reef access, good Lebanese restaurant, and very pleasant staff
View from our room at the Hilton Waterfalls
Could any one tell me if this all inclusive hotel provides beach towels at the pool area, and also at other public beaches are towels provided and wat are the facilities like at the beaches, i.e. showers, toilets etc..? Also how much should i be tipping there? In sharm is sleeveless tops ok? and wat bout cairo? is it better to exchange money here or at the airport there? Could any one give me the name of any nice quite beaches, to watch the sunset etc...
Free towels for the beach and pool(its how they know you are a guest).Most of the public beaches provide towels but not all.Sleeveless in sharm is fine.Its better to change money at a bank in egypt.The sun sets over the mountains and most beaches face the wrong way but if you can get to the sadiki cafe on the cliff top along from Club Fanara in Hadaba you will see it really well.
At the hotel at the reseption you will get a plastic card that you can exchange for the towels... usually you get one per card, i was lucky sometimes could get 2 towels for one card :)
