“Amazing beach for scuba diving/windsurfing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Put it like this we did not want to come back home! The beach was amazing - white sand and crystal clear water with a mountain of water sport activities!! Previously we booked with Neilson holidays to Turkey which was brilliant so we booked again with them. The hotel was beautiful and clean - our room was modern which was a surprise especially the en-suite. Our room was cleaned every day with new bedding and towels. Bed and Breakfast was ideal as you don’t really want to eat during activities. The food was good similar to our English dish - pasta, fish, chicken, rise, bread… juice in the morning, otherwise you pay for water and beverages.

The Neilson team were really friendly and helpful – brilliant at teaching and are very good at organising anything you want to do even out of the resort. We nearly got ripped off with another company outside the resort until the Neilson staff said they would organised Quad biking for us £20 (per bike) for three hours, which I would recommend. They also arrange mountain biking which we didn't manage to go on but heard it was great fun - I would have taken a trip to Masbat which is a great town and awesum nightlife – which is a must!

I would definitely recommend scuba diving at the Black Rock which is a part of Neilson holidays - ask the staff about it because you get a free trial dive to see if you like it and then go from there. We had our first 12m dive at the 'Light House' – exquisite fish and coral!! We did not have time but if we did we would have gone to the Blue Hole as everyone kept saying how great it was.

Room Tip: We were quite surprised on how modern our room was, especially the ensuite. Our room was cleaned eve...

Just back from a week in Dahab, my first visit to Egypt and despite the recent negative reports this is a fantastic holiday location! great for windsurfing, good value and local people friendly. Both my son and I felt safe and got out to exp[lore the local area too. Egypt has a lot to offer and we will definitely be returning in the future.

Just spent a week at this resort on a windsufing holiday with Nielsen`s and it is truly awesome. Go for the half-board option and you won`t regret it as the food in evenings is amazing. Can`t fault the hotel and the staff are excellent - very helpful and always greet you with a smile. Seriously, they are the best hotel staff we`ve ever come across in any country we`ve visited. We will definitely return

Room Tip: Splash out and go for a sea-view room to get that morning/afternoon sun

We returned from the Coralia Club Dahab yesterday fully relaxed after two weeks of Egyptian sunshine. We arrived on a late Thomas Cook flight followed by an hour long drive through the dessert; we were very quickly checked in and our bags taken to our room, just in time to catch a very welcome cold beer before the bar closed. We had room 128, a lovely garden room which turned out to be only about 100 meters from the sea. Our room had obviously been refurbished recently and was very clean with a large very comfortable bed, fridge, TV with several English channels, plenty of extra space, a lovely bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. Although as always there was very little storage space and only 4 coat hangers. There was a small patio overlooking the garden and sea, with two chairs and a little table, perfect for early morning coffee (you will need a travel kettle).

The Egyptian staff were friendly and welcoming, although as our holiday went on we found that the staffing structure was a very top heavy with a lot of management sitting down or wandering around doing nothing while the boys, who could perhaps do with a bit more training seem to work extremely long hours and work very hard. Our own room boy Fayez, always kept our room clean, the bedding was changed frequently and we had plenty of clean towels every day. Kareem the bar boy was amazing - he was attentive, well trained, efficient and very friendly.

The beach was beautifully clean, with plenty of lovely sunbeds and big umbrellas. Beach towels were supplied and could be changed as often as needed. There are loads of water sports on the beach from various companies, we traveled with Neilson although this is the last year for them as they will be moving out of Dahab in June. The hotel has a large pool with a few beds around it, it was always clean and looked very welcoming.

The breakfast and the evening meal at the Coralia Club are both buffet style. Breakfast was exactly the same every day we were there. Don't expect bacon. The evening buffet was a two week rotation. Unfortunately the food really let the hotel down there was a lack of fresh fruit with the exception of melon and oranges, hardly any fresh vegetables and salad variety. The soups each evening were tasteless and disappointing. The quality of the meat is poor. The desserts lacked imagination and became monotonous.Although there is an Egyptian lady there every day cooking beautiful fresh flat breads There was very little choice of cheeses and the cold meats were processed and mostly unpleasant. For lunch we used the Lagoon Bar, which had a small menu of sandwiches, burgers, fresh fish, chicken and salads; it was enough for lunch.

There is a local town close by; we went a few times and used the hotel taxi service, which was very cheap and reliable. There is a supermarket which stocks plenty of sun creams, shower gels etc, snacks, drinks and water.

Good things that made our holiday; location for the peace and quiet relaxed atmosphere. The beach and sea. Kareem and Fayez for their help and smiles.

Things that let the hotel down; The repetitive evening singer in the Sultan Bar, the grossly overpriced bottled water, which is so cheap in the supermarket and the food.

Things we would suggest; take a travel kettle, take a trip to the supermarket in town and stock up on bottled water, take your own brand of tea and coffee. If you enjoy a whiskey nightcap buy your duty free and have it on your own terrace, a shot of whiskey is 80 Egyptian pounds in the bar (a bit excessive we thought).

Overall we enjoyed a quiet relaxed holiday, the weather was warm and sunny everyday even though Dahab is very windy most days we found we could stay in the sunshine and enjoy the beach.

The Coralia is a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A great beach to lay on your sun lounger and watch all the windsurfing antics on the water. There is no political trouble in this part of Egypt and reccomend you go there for your holiday.Hotel has had a lot of work done on it and really looks nice and the gardens just behind the baech are well groomed.
Windsurfing kit is of the latest boards and sails with exellent tuition

We had a pleasent break at the Coalia. We went with Neilson Holidays over between Christmas and New Year.

First time in Egypt so did not know what to expect. The room we stayed it was good, nice flat screen T.V. even with HDMI inputs, so if you have a laptop don't forget the cable. The fridge was not working in the room, however this was not really that much of a problem. I am sure if we had mentioned this it would have been fixed or exchanged.

We went half board. The food was ok and we did not suffer from any problems. There coiuld have been a little more choice and slightly better quality.
In the mornings the chef's would kindly make pancakes and omlettes for us... For the first half of the week there was a lady who would make flat bread in a clay oven.

In terms of water sports there is a lot to do, check out the Neilson website.

At New Years we had a fantastic time at the hotel party. Just watch out for the wine bill.
