“Great value, suitable for famelies and couples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

just been there with my family for four nights, it was a great experience, the rooms are very big with clean linen and good room service. All the staff were very friendly including the owner of the resort who is a Dahab's local and a very friendly guy (Mr Jabali Ali). they were very flexible about the late check out.
if you have kids its nicer to take the suite in the ground floor overlooking the pool so they can play around and you just relax in the terrace watching them.
breakfast was basic; yet fresh and delicious we enjoyed their brown toast :)
i strongly recommend this hotel for anyone wants to stay in a nice clean hotel very close to the town center and the beach.

Room Tip: ground floor ismuch better if you have kids

I stayed at the Sheikh Ali as a solo traveller in October and cannot fault the hotel or staff. I had booked into another hotel in Dahab that turned out not to be right for me and decided to change to the Sheikh Ali after looking it up online. I booked at 8.30 in the morning and was there by 9.30 and they could not have been more accommodating. There was a slight mix up with my booking (NOT the hotels fault at all) and Rasha did all she could to help sort it out - which she did, totally. I walked in and instantly exhaled...

Beautiful, huge clean rooms. Gorgeous, quiet, pool. Lovely gardens. And I had a great massage here also. Other guests were also really friendly - but also didn't get offended if you wanted to hang out on your own.

It's only a 5 minute walk down to the main drag. My only slight concern as a solo was the walk to the Main Street involves going down an unlit alley... Not something a single girl would do in the UK! But I was reassured on safety by Rasha and felt more secure once I bought a torch.

My only slight niggle was the range of breakfast and booze available! Breakfast is too limited and it was a little uncomfortable seeing fruit salad uncovered in such heat. And it would be great to be able to choose something other than beer in the evening to drink (other than non-alcoholic, obviously). A G&T would have been fab...! But their Turkish Coffee was amazing!

But I loved this hotel and will definitely be going back.

Just spent eight nights at Sheikh Ali and i think it's a great place to stay in Dahab. The rooms are fab, massive bed and a very spacious room. The location is good, a little walk to the main restaurant strip (max 10 mins) but during the day when relaxing by the pool it is very quiet and calm! The service was excellent, we got a late check out on the day for 4pm, which i thought was great.
All rooms have the same view overlooking the pool. the grounds are very well maintained and the resort was always nice and quiet!
Only reservations are the breakfast isn't great, very limited selection. It is a small hotel so i can understand that htey can't cater to everyone but unleess you like eggs and bread, you're extremely limited. and although it's an air conditioned room, milk and cheese are left out unchilled.
The pool is also cold, the sea was much warmer.

Overall i really enjoyed this hotel and if i was returning to Dahab, i would defintely go back. I think the best thing about it is you get to stay in a local place but have the luxuries of an international hotel.

Hi, this is Bron the General Manager of Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to post your comments. In particular, thank you for the remark concerning breakfast.

Our current breakfast is acceptable however I believe Sheikh Ali can do better for our valued guests. Hence we're now reviewing the breakfast menu with the goal to exceed our guests’ expectations.

I hope you’ll return soon and of course I’ll welcome your comments and suggestions on the new menu which will be ready in the new year.

Once again, thank you for helping us improve our business with your constructive feedback.

For anyone travelling to Dahab, this is a MUST hotel to stay in. I travel extensively and this hotel hits all the right notes. Big enough to provide a broad range of services and small enough for everything to be personal. Huge bedrooms, plenty of storage, and spacious showers. The beds are enormous! The staff are fantastically helpful and will go that extra mile to make your stay a happy one. Food improved all through our stay and the breakfasts will get better with time. The pool is big enough for it to offer reasonable excercise if you are that way inclined. Owned by a friend and run by Rasha who I am sure will become a good friend, it is a triumph. Years in the planning - Gabaly has delivered a credit to his fathers name........
The challenge will be keeping the look and the standards for years to come.
We will be back!

Having travelled to Dahab numurous times, this was our first time in this brand spanking new resort. Previous stays included the Hilton, Nesima, Bedouin Moon and the Spinx. Not one of the previous will give you the enormous room and bed that is on offer in this charming small Hotel. The only 18 rooms (its being extended !) gives it a very cosy and relaxed atmosphere with a great swimming pool and lovely garden. The breakfast was almost daily improved and has now made to order omelettes and various other egg dishes. Further more a espresso machine was installed during our stay.The owner Mr Gabaly Ali is almost daily on site and will go out of his way to do whatever he can to make your stay better. The staff is wonderfull with a special mention for Rasha who is the most welcoming receptionist I have ever met.
We have booked our next stay in December !

Room Tip: No tips needed, just ground floor garden or top floor Balcony

Just arrived at home from a wonderful week in Sheikh Ali Resort Dahab.
The hotel is really excellent! The suites are very clean, cosy and comfortable.
The swimming pool is very good for relaxing after an exciting day in the beautiful surroundings.
The Hotel is close to the town centre of Dahab and the beach.
If we come again to Dahab we would like to stay here again.
