When my husband and I discovered Alf Leila Boutique Hotel in Dahab three years ago, it felt like coming to heaven. Mo, the general manager is friendly in such a relaxed way and has a wealth of Dahab information. We have stayed in the same room(Sultana), three years in a row- beautifully yet simply decorated, with a comfortable bed, fridge... More

Coming back to Alf Leila is like coming home. The hotel and the rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable, the staff is perfect, and the atmosphere is unique. What else to say. Yes, the location could´t be better, close to everything and a couple of hundred meters to Lighthouse, and the breakfasts at Leila Bakery not to be missed. Cannot... More

I visited Alf Leila for a couple of days on May, it's simply relaxing with a taste of cozyness and friendly atmosphere. It's located near the sea (2 mins walk), breakfast includes vouchers from Alf Leila bakery. The crew is so helpful and friendly. The rooms are always clean and I like how they named them after spices :)

Me and a group of friends visited Dahab in January. It wasn't exactly what we were expecting when we pulled up (we were told by a member of the group we were staying at another hotel.) However this hotel turned out to be the best place for us! The small quirkiness of it was very inviting and we never felt... More

Lovely haven in dahab city- brilliant access to the main promenade by the sea (2 minute walk) and to dive centres and sites. Once inside though, it is blissfully quiet, with rooms opening onto a beautiful courtyard with floor cushions for collapsing on to after a days diving. The staff are extremely helpful, from exchanging currency to recommending good local... More

Nice to be slightly away from the front and the atmosphere in the early evening in the front of the hotel, in the reception and small courtyard was very relaxed and scented with candles/incense. Each room is named after a different spice. Apart from an occasional late night howl from neighbourhood dogs, and the odd motorbike, it was perfect for... More

I have just come back from staying in Alf Leila and already miss it! The Morroccan style hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the general manager Mohammad made the place even lovelier. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as its a fab place to stay in, with a five minute walk to the beaches and lots of restaurants. Would give... More
