“friendly & great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I loved it. Much nicer than the 'camps' (camps in Dahab means the cheapest huts and concrete sheds costing around 50LE) while only costing a bit more. But it depends on what you're used to; don't expect hotel standards.

Good points:
- Staff helpful and informative
- 80LE per room per night without bartering
- restaurant space was calm, hassle-free, remained open to lounge in when closed

Things that might bother some people:
- shower water is salty and cold, i guess sea water
- toilets difficult to flush and didn't always work
- flies in restaurant

Room Tip: Ask to see a few different rooms

First of all: I can totally recommend this place!

Rooms: Nice, clean rooms with comfortable beds and separate bathroom in a small complex surrounding a nice little garden. 30 seconds (!) walk from room to beach. Very good value!

Restaurant: Local dishes and breakfast super tasty and big portions!!! Open restaurant with mattress style tables. Flies are a bit intrusive though during daytime (winter).

Location: Backpacker district - not directly in the center though (only 2 min. walk along the seaside boulevard) which is a pro as you are not disturbed by over-motivated salespeople while relaxing in front of the sea.

Staff: Always super friendly and helps you with all your requests and even helps you to organize things/activities they usually don't offer (thus don't earn an penny doing so). Offered tours are comparably good value for money. Osama usually picks people up at the bus station in Dahab. So look out!

Dving: The attached diving school Bedouin Divers has two excellent dive instructors/masters which demand much more comprehension and practical skills from their students during their PADI courses than I have ever seen before. They really try to give you all the knowledge to become a safe, self-contained (which does not mean without buddy ;-) and responsible diver. Haven't seen so much effort from the instructors in any other PADI school so far. Nevertheless prices for tours/trainings are amongst the cheapest in Dahab. Said this you should really try this center if you want to go diving!

We had an excellent stay at Bedouin lodge. The whole crew is very friendly and helpful.
There diving instructors are very professional and well trained people. We rented our diving gaer at the centre, it was in perfect condition.
We look forward to going back.

I didn’t stay in the Bedouin Lodge, but I enjoyed eating in their restaurant (good food, friendly, relaxed atmosphere), and I’ve been diving several times with the Bedouin Divers. I really enjoyed their advanced open water course, as well as the fun dives in the company of Abdul, Ahmed and Mohab. The equipment was well maintained, Abdul was a very good instructor, and Mohab made sure that I didn’t miss anything of the underwater creatures that we were passing by.
