“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2010

A small and very friendly hotel with great food. A fantastic house reef with a dive centre at the hotel. We had a week of total relaxation. The guests are mainly Dutch and most spoke English and were very friendly. No Russians! There is no entertainment, but a free shuttle bus takes you into Dahab in the evening. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean and the beds are very comfortable. The towels were clean, but if you like "fluffy and white" I suggest you take your own. The food was excellant throughout our stay and the staff were always friendly. If you want peace and quite and great food this hotel is for you. Talking to other guests, most had visited before. And we most definatly be returning.

The purpose of our trip was to relax, dive and escape the world. Daniela provided this. The food was very good - we were half board and did not get tired of the choices available. The staff were friendly and happy to assist. The hotel has a small pool and strip of beach - both with sun lounges and guests are provided with mattresses to use. It is a very quiet hotel - there is a free shuttle bus into Dahab (3km) every evening and at other times taxis can be arranged. The hotel organise treks into the desert (inc overnight stays) and the dive centre is purely for hotel guests.

I come to the Daniella several times a year to dive. I bring my children, friends and relatives. My daughter (4 years old) is such a fixture at the Daniella that I pretty much leave her at the reception when I arrive and pick her up when I check out, several days later... with the exception of meals, basic hygiene and sleeping. My teenage son adores the Daniella, thanks again to the INCREDIBLE staff who have become "family" to us.
The food is fantastic, the rooms very comfortable (small showers), and again, the staff is just unbelievable.
The diving in Dahab is outstanding and they have everything you need, in case you don't want to lug your equipment.
You won't be disappointed on this trip. Quality to price ratio is extremely high and the service is out of this world.

Just returned from 10 days total chill out at the Daniella Village. Absolutely loved the atmosphere, so calm and the staff were fabulous - thank you so much guys for making our stay such a pleasure.
The setting was wonderful, everything arranged by the hotel staff easily and Dahab itself lovely.
Wonderful snorkelling.

We stayed at Daniela for a dive weekend. It is not a luxury hotel, i.e. no satellite or even a TV. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful for whatever we asked. The food was really good, too. My wife even liked it! If you are going for diving, then this a great place for you. We dove, dove, dove, then crashed at the hotel. Beachfront, pool, bar, and good food - everything we wanted.

The staff are very friendly and warm-hearted, and are incredibly flexible in order to meet guests' needs - it's obvious that the staff and the owner really care. Far away from the tourist centre and right by the beach, providing an environment of tranquility and close to nature. Good coral reefs very close to the hotel. Take advantage of the nightly shuttle to Dahab, the town has cute little bars by the seaside and some decent restaurants. Guests were mainly couples and families, no individual travellers or backpackers. Would recommend to anyone looking for a tranquil down-to-earth place, although solo travellers might be better off in a hotel downtown to meet other travellers. Definately do the diving trip to Thistlegorm and Ras Mohammed if you are a diver.

This is nearly a perfect place. We felt very welcomed, the food is great, the staff's aim is to meet your needs and they go out of their way to do it, it is easy going, relax, casual and you have the reef on the beach as a bonus. This reef is very rich so you don't really need to go anywhere else if you don't want to. They have a diving centre so you can hire all your equipment and they also organise trips for you as well. We were very sad to go, we hope to come back.
