“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

My husband and I decided to book a last minute break and stumbled across this little gem of a hotel. We had a lovely break the food was excellent, the hotel and rooms were very clean and everyone was warm and friendly. The animation team were fantastic and very respectful of our wishes if we did or didn't want to participate. We also met 7 other really lovely people at the resort and hopefully will keep in contact. We are more than happy to return to this resort again and again.

Room Tip: Our room was above the Pool Bar and looking across the sea was perfect for us.

Put aside the hour transfer and land up in a little gem of a hotel. The food was good with waiters and staff very attentive to our needs. we had room 2105 with king sizes bed just by pool and main resturant handy. beach only 200 metres away, nite life is basic but they did do a good young entertainment in there arena. Could be a change from sharm.

Everything is great on this location: food, rooms, services, sea, hotel, view, weather, breakfast, bar, restaurant....Enjoy and have fun! Possibility of making trips by boat, surfing, horse riding, waterski, wakeboard, snorkeling and so on. Watch Masbat - view kilometers away from the hotel.

Hotel is very small compared to hotels I have stayed at previously, however this certainly had its advantages! For a start there is no wait for people for transfers to and from the airport, and you are checked in as soon as you get there with staff taking your bags to your room/s

All the bars are very good, and the local beer is surprisingly good, only issue was the barman during the day at the "Cheers" Bar was bloody miserable all the time, but all the staff everywhere else were very helpfull and friendly and can be a laugh.

Pool seems to be heated overnight so you can get straight into it in the morning, perfect temperature, and swimming up to the bar is always a bonus!

Beach bar is good, although trying to get space on the beach with sunbeds is just not possible, having said that the pool was more than good enough to lye at, and taking a dip into the sea was nice and warm as well.

On the first few days we went into the sea just at the edge of the beach totally unware of the hundreds of crazy looking fish there were swimming around you. As soon as we learnt putting on snorkels, it was amazing what was under there!

Dahab itself is a bit of a mess, if you go into the town for shopping, DO NOT go alone and best to go at weekends when it is busy. The street vendors and shopkeepers harass you no end.

Exursions to do - we did quadbiking for 200 egyptian pounds (£20) and it lasted about 3 hours going through the deserts and getting awesome views and photo stops, definatly recommended!

Snorkeling - none of us that went were particularly fans of this before we came but as the other people at the hotel recommended it we gave it a go, and my God were we not dissapointed!

We went to the blue hole for 80 egyptian pounds (£8) with a guide, about 3 hours overall, and it was nothing short of amazing.

***If you do any excursions or water sports then speak to Alex at the Baby Fish stall on the left of the beach as you walk out onto it from the hotel. They are by far the cheapest and by far the friendliest and most helpfull, really going out of his way to make sure you have a good time - he made the holiday even more awesome***

Food was pretty good, the waiters were very friendly, and its the same waiters for breakfast as its is for lunch and dinner so by the time you sit down, they get to know what you want to drink and have already brought it to you - that goes the same with the beach bar and the pool bar, they will top it up and bring you a new one before you finish without being asked

Rooms good, random stuff done with towells every day by the cleaners

Entertainment team very funny but clearly on a budget of next to nothing but they will certainly make you laugh

Perfect November holiday, hot, sunny, exellent hotel, exellent staff, and whether you want to be busy permanantly or just relax then its just perfect. 10/10

Only downside is from what I understand is that the hotel will be in the Platinu Thomson range next year which means the price will go up considerably, which is a shame because I would be more than happy to return here over and over again

Thank you Ibertoel Dahabeya and Alex from Baby Fish - PERFECT HOLIDAY

The hotel is in an excellent location, right on the beach and all the facilities are first class. For all water sports and snorkelling trips, seek out Alex at Babyfish. They are on the left hand side of the beach. He took us on some fabulous trips to Blue Hole and Ras Mohammed. He organised everything and acted as our guide. He couldn't do enough for us.

Room Tip: We were on the Ground Floor with Pool View. Room 1121 is right by the pool and only 25yds from the b...

Fantastic. All the positive comments have already been made by other people so I won't go through them again.
Downside - I believe that this hotel is going in to the Platinum brochure next year and this will come with Platinum prices.
We came here for a relaxing beach/pool holiday and that is just what we got.
I love snorkelling and the wife wanted to lie on a sun bed near a pool both of which we got here.
There are two small reefs just off the end of the swimming area and a house reef(man made) about 100 yards to the left of the swimming area. I would like to suggest that the hotel extend the protected swimming area to enclose these areas as the windsurfers and motor boats seem to enjoy going as fast as they can right over these areas.
We actually saw the man from the windsurf place next to the hotel stop and tell people swimming to get out of his windsurfing area and get back into the swimming area. Why can't they have a speed limit for the motorboats close to the shore?
If you go to the swimming area for the Swiss Inn their reef is inside the swimming area and is much safer.
Also the hotel right at the end before the lagoon has several small reefs also inside their swimmers area.
At low tide you can wade through the lagoon at the end of the beach and there is very good snorkelling over there in front of the area with sunbeds(take sea shoes or flip flops).
It was also nice to get straight in to water of swimming depth without having to walk out on a wooden pier as you do in Sharm.
All rooms have hair dryers, kettles with tea and coffee and herbal teas provided, flannels shampoo conditioner and shower gel.
The food is very good with excellent choice.
Dogs - there are a lot of strays - if you are worried about them there is a charity box in reception to have them spayed and vaccinated. They are nothing to do with the hotel in fact security chase them off the beach. They are friendly and harmless
but people from the hotel feed them. They never bothered us.
The trip in to Dhahab is worth doing. Early evening seems to be the best time. I went in shorts and flip-flops and felt a bit under-dressed.
Take a good insect repellent that you can rub on your skin. Mossies and sand flies gave us a good chewing and the flies will annoy you.
I wore long trousers in the evenings at least they can't bite your legs then.
The plug in repellent was a waste of time you might as well throw it at them.The two pin plugs
here are aligned vertically so unless you have a rotating plug you won't be able to use it anyway.
Temperatures- we came on November 9th for three weeks and it was 28 at 7am and 35 by lunchtime.
Evenings were very warm.
Towards the end of November it was 21 at 7am and 28 at lunchtime on average and the
pool was definetley a lot colder. Evenings were just warm enough to sit outside.
We had two or three windy days where it was a lot cooler(24) during the day and one amazing thunderstorm
with hail stones the size of small marbles followed by torrential rain. This closed the pool and beach bars for the rest of the day.
How the staff managed to clean up all the water and open the main restaurant by the evening I do not know.
They worked very hard.
If you want to know how sunbeds get reserved by 5.30 am have a word with the man who
gives out the towels.
Finally on arrival at the airport watch out for the people who grab your cases out of your hand and want a £5 tip for carrying them 50 yards. They say they are working for Thomson.
