We just returned from four days at Iberotel Dahabeya. Our visit coincided with a cold snap (including a snow storm at St. Katherine's/Mt Sinai) so it wasn't exactly a beach vacation, but we LOVED this hotel and would return at any time. It's efficiently run - every request (extra pillow, water delivery, etc.) was responded to directly. The hotel is a 10-minute drive from downtown Dahab, but the hotel runs a free shuttle bus several times a day and offers a taxi service at less than $2.00 to take or retrieve you at other times. While Dahab was very quiet during this wintry period, it might be preferable to some travellers to be closer to the town, but there is plenty to do right at the hotel. The buffet spreads at the main restaurant (Palmiere) are generally excellent - it's important to not come at the end of the dinner hour since some entrees dry out over the two+ hour dinner period. One night the staff put on a seaside banquet for us one night, and handily accommodated the cool breezes while serving up superior fresh grilled fish. Our main - and important - complaint is that wifi is available only in the inside lobby (which doubles as a bar in the evening) and is expensive. It should be free and reach one's room, but at a minimum, it should reach the airy exterior lobby which overlooks the pool and sea beyond. One felt shut in and away from life when online, which some of us must be daily -- an unnecessary inconvenience in 2013. But all in all I strongly recommend this hotel - and the town of Dahab - for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in an interesting area.
