My wife I are just back from an awesome family reunion at the Acacia Dahab hotel, Sinai, Egypt. We were pampered by Magda, the owner and manager, to the extent that by the end of our 4 day stay we actually FELT like she was part of our family too! No effort was spared to meet our needs and requests by the friendly staff. Loved the Egyptian sea side breakfasts and the BBQ meals accompanied by the delicious house rice specialty, in the palm tree setting. Will definitely plan a larger get together next year.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel for divers and non- divers.

Good driver service to and from SSH without speeding.
Breakfast is ok.
Child friendly and good cocktails.

Just got back from a week in Dahab staying at Acacia Dahab Hotel. As a woman travelling alone I was a little apprehensive before my arrival but, from the moment I stepped into the cool foyer of the Acacia and was welcomed by Yussuf, I felt completely safe.

My transfers and room booking were handled clearly and efficiently by email with all my queries being answered in perfect English by Nienke. My room was quiet, clean and comfortable with a large fridge and TV and a beautiful view of the pool and the Red Sea beyond. Breakfast was included in the price and can be delivered to your room (to be eaten on your own private balcony) or enjoyed in a air conditioned restaurant or in a shaded outside restaurant which is right on the sea front. My room was cleaned daily with clean towels and fresh sheets and I always returned to an amusing towel art creation.

Although I didn't do a diving course, I found Sally at attached Sea Dancer Dive School very friendly and helpful. If you like a holiday with a little bit of an edge to it then Dahab is paradise! The sea life and coral is stunning, whether you are snorkelling or diving and a night under the stars in the Wadi is also a must.

My only sadness during a brilliant week was that I had this well-run and perfectly located hotel almost to myself! The local Dahab Egyptians are really suffering as a result of the Foreign Office changing the travel advisory. They are friendly, welcoming and respectful and, as a woman travelling on my own, I felt completely safe.

I urge you to go to Dahab now and enjoy the sun which is a perfect temperature at this time of year. I am already planning my next visit!

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room with a sea view. As other travellers have said, the showers are small but the...

What a wonderful review you have given us, thank you so much! We are delighted you have enjoyed your stay at Acacia Hotel so much and that you felt really safe with us and in Dahab, being a single woman. We can not spread the word enough that Dahab is still the quiet and peaceful place it has always been, so thank you for your confirmation!
We hope you will come back to Dahab and you will choose to stay with us again and maybe try that dive or do the course. :)

Best regards from Nienke, Magda and the Acacia team and from Sally from Sea Dancer Acacia.

We are just back from Acacia Dahab where we spent 8 nights. This place is just perfect.
- spotless
- fantastic staff (Mahmoud, Nadir, Chef, Youssef : thumbs up)
- great atmosphere : Magda (owner) is a real mom. We felt spoilt the whole week. Her personality reflects on the hotel which is a warm and friendly place
- great food (thank you Chef!)
- early check in was accepted (5am!!)
- upgraded room
- the house keeper was making lovely towel sculpures (yep, even if you dont care about towel sculpures, you will be amazed).
- perfect dive center connected to the hotel (Sea Dancer Acacia)

Dahab is a beautiful and quiet place (no safety issue at all, seriously). Acacia is the place you want to stay if you want to enjoy Dahab: homy atmosphere, central but still quiet.

We had our first anniversary during our stay. Oh my, we were so spoilt. Lovely dinner by the beach, with candles, lovely music. And when we went back to our room, a beautiful cake was waiting for us!! Also Youssef at the reception gave us a heart shape card (home made) with lovely message. I still feel emotional about this gesture. This hotel and its people are special, and they make you feel special too.

If you want to spend a great time in Dahab, in a beautiful, clean and safe environment, dont look any further.

Regarding the negative things: if you dont like pets, you may be annoyed by the cats/dogs. They will ask for cuddles :)

See you in September, for two weeks this time :)

Room Tip: upgrade to the pool - sea view. Not all the rooms have the same size!

The Acacia Dahab Hotel is easily the best hotel I have had the opportunity to stay in. You can tell everyone who works there really enjoys their job and all of their guests. Everyone was so helpful for the entire 7 days that we were there, The atmosphere, rooms, restaurant, and especially the people who work at Acacia Dahab were fantastic! I will definitely go to Dahab again and stay at Acacia.

You can't do better than the Acacia Dahab. Everything from the housekeeping staff all the way up the line was top class. We stayed for 7 nights as a group of friends, primarily to dive with Sea Dancer, but found ourselves really enjoying simply hanging around the hotel. The food was terrific, the service was great, and the proximity to the dive center was ideal. They accommodated every request we had from music, to Olympic coverage (we really needed to watch Olympic hockey), to specific airport pickup arrangements. They made every aspect of our trip to Dahab enjoyable and easy. Stay here, you won't regret it.
