We just got back from our fabolous holiday in Le Meridien Dahab and would like to share our experiences with other travelers.
The hotel is simply great! I have been to egypt 3 times before (not to Dahab) and this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. They have really 5 stars; I mean European 5 stars.
The hotel is nestled between the mountains of Dahab in a quiet surrounding, the sea is cristal clear with beautiful colours, they have an own house reef where you will see beautiful fish all day long; the pools are just wonderful, especially the infinity pool and the salt water pool.
Customer relations are great; everything the hotel "touches" will be more than ok. They arrangend a breakfast box for us when we went on our trip without even asking for it, a late night dinner at our room, lovely prepared. One day I wished to eat at the Vie Restaurant and wanted to choose from the dinner menue, also this was absolutly no problem.
Breakfast is delicious, they have their own cooks making you eggs, waffels etc.
Staff is extremely attentive, funny, and helpful without waiting for tips. Of course they like them but they do not behave like that because they expect them. I really appreciate this kind of behaviour. Prices at the restaurants and bars are more than fair for a superb hotel like this, eg one beer 30 egyptian pound, one delicous pizza 55 egyptian pound, 1, 5 liter of water 16 egypitan pound.
I also would like to comment two previous reviews, one that tells that this hotel is not good for people with kids because they can`t bring the strollers down to the beach. That is simply not true. It only takes more time, because the road makes some curves around the staircase. When is was there a lady in a wheelchair was also spending her holidays in Le Meridien and her husband could easily guide her down to the beach. Nevertheless recreation guys always helped them.
The other review I really did not understand was about the pool beeing dirty. This simply can not be. I saw recreation guys cleaning the pool every morning, the salt water pool was completely cleanded one day. And the issue about the bill: Every grown up human being should check a bill before signing it. We also had a small issue about one wrong bill but I think this was a mistake. We have only singend for 2 drinks and on the final bill there was a charge for 4 drinks. This could easily be arrangend as we only singend for 2 drinks and so of course they did not charge us. When the waiters do have stress this can happen!
As we are compeltely satisfied I only have some suggestions to make. Sleeping quality was not always perfect because we have been surrounded with families and kids in the other rooms. I think this could be easily handled when you put together people with no kids next to each other ( of course when they have booked the same room type) and families with kids also next to each other. The walls are really thin and we were able to hear a lot of noises. The equipment would be there for a good nights sleep, beds are very comfortable, rooms are spacious and extremely clean.
The other thing was during the special BBQ evening at the beach. I think the first two tables were placed to close to the stage where the fire breather was making his show. I saw people standing up and watching from more distance as ashes were falling around.
Special thanks to Ossama Kamel, who is a very good organizer and made our stay really pleasent. We already recommended this hotel to our family and friends and we will definitely come back!
