This was my second stay with Emad and his staff and the care and hospitality offered remains a feature of this unique hotel. It's in a lovely setting and is ideal as a warm sunny place to be based as you chill and recharge your batteries.The hotel is well situated a short walk from the main area of restaurants and shops.
You really do feel that you are staying with a relative rather than a hotelier as when you first arive Emad gives you a short tour and introduces you to friends and family who own or work in nearby businesses.Drinking water and laundery are provided free each day and every request is responded to though you need to recognise that time is a moveable feast and "in ten minutes" can mean variety of timescales depending on the challenge you are setting!
I had visited three years ago when the situation in Egypt was very diiferent and this time, both the hotel and Dahab in general, was very quiet.Local people and ex-pats were at pains to stress that the troubles elsewhere in the country had not impacted locally other than hitting them economically. From what I experienced I can vouch that this is still a jewel in the desert that can be enjoyed by the discerning tourist who wants an an alternative to the all inclusive expensive but boring luxury.that is available in Sharm and elsewhere.
