Very clean, super friendly staff. Mo the manager is very helpful. The hotel is well-maintained and you can get breakfast included from the bakery next door if you choose. The rooms are gorgeous and the courtyard is a nice place to spend an evening. Wifi is a little spotty, but that was okay. Short walk (5 minutes) to the beach... More

Alf Leila is a haven in Dahab. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained, clean and above all, has a great feel and energy to it. I loved the decor, the colors and the people who run it. Simone and Mo are welcoming and warm and they always had a smile for their guests. Thank you for making this stay a... More

Excellent & cozy choice in Dahab. Owner is extremely accommodating, even to our ever-changing plans. It's a short walk to the beach but we didn't mind (about 3min). Free coffee & tea. Breakfast at the bakery next door. Balconies overgrown with wild hibiscus.

We've just arrived home from a perfect stay at the Alf Leila, very sad to come home. The accommodation was beautiful with a boho Moroccan feel. The lounge area and rooms have incense burning which just adds to the vibe. Our scuba 2000 team stayed here for 2 weeks, I stayed for 1 in the ginger room. It was a... More

Second visit here. First time booked by someone else and so glad they chose this place. Classic old style Arabic hotel with just a few rooms but they are so good. Chose Sultan suite for this stay and great large room with seating/kitchen area as well as bedroom. Great shower room with domed ceilings and classic fittings. Lovely little balcony... More

Staying at Alf Leila was truly an amazing experience! The place is very comfortable, clean and inviting. Mohamed, the manager is very sweet, helpful and friendly. We are a family of five and even my 10 year old twin daughters had a blast. Each room has its own character and you can't help but thinking that less is actually more.... More

Took my family to Dahab. Mohammed and his team were superb. I recommend this hotel. The Lighthouse area of Dahab is a unique tourist area where visitors and locals live close together - the mosque is next to a dive centre, goats are herded past pubs and cafes, lawyer next to hotel, etc. Yes it means you will hear working...

This camp is very chill and relaxed. The staff there are super friendly and it feels like home after a couple of days. Mohamed was always very gracious and gave us great restaurant recommendations. All in all we enjoyed our stay in this relaxing cozy camp, our only concern was the location, it was a tiny bit far from the... More

Attention to detail, small and cozy, phenominal atmosphere, its truly one of a kind! Reminded me of a latin american soap opera set, married with the exotic arabianesque which is Egypt! Safron is the best room

A great little hotel - I stayed twice now in the room called Safran. Very comfy and spacious. Big bed, good en-suite, ante room and balcony. Very friendly and welcoming. Dahab is a super resort and this "end of town" has a real community feel where you will meet pleasant and cheerful holidaymakers and locals alike, In the community means... More
