The place is very nice, and quiet, right next to the Lighthouse, but away from the noise of the shops and restaurants there, so you will get a very relaxing, comfortable and quiet sleep. In Dahab, they try to make everything so basic, so when you go, expect to find many stray animals in the camp, and basically everywhere you...

Hello and thanks for your review. Glad you liked our camp and enjoyed our unique position by the beach. If you could get in touch and let me know where you read that the rooms are serviced daily, that would be appreciated. We don't service rooms daily so that we can offer prices as low as 60 EGP per night!...

It was great to be back in Marine Garden Camp. The nice atmosphere and friendly staff make me feel at home. Good location close by the sea, shops & bars. The restaurant served good food. Very good price/quality. I will be back again soon!

It's a very warm, cozy place that feels like home when you step in. I loved the cafe by the beach and I spent most of the time sitting on the carpet in front of the sea, even slept there one night. It also has a great location, close to most shops and restaurants. Just some pieces of advice: *It...

The accommodation and staff are wonderful, as is the location. I would highly recommend Marine camp. The food is both gorgeous and organic.

I stayed for 10 days. I had a room with shared bathroom. The room was basic with a bed and nothing else (no fan etc.). Cleanliness of the room and the shared bathroom was medium.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We wish that you would have spoken with us more extensively while you were here. Your 40 LE camp room is the cheapest room we had available, as you declined the offer of an recently upgraded en-suite room for 80LE and our new delux camp rooms for 150 LE While we understand...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Marine Garden is a Bedouin Camp, a unique type of accommodation found only in the Sinai region of Egypt. It is ideal for the independent minded backpacker as we offer low prices, independency, and a truly laid-back atmosphere. Our camp is at the seafront in the Lighthouse area of Dahab and has unobstructed views of the Red Sea. The owners have worked hard to preserve the traditional Bedouin flavour of the camp. It is one of the few authentic camps left in the town. The emphasis is on partnership and sociability rather than on hard-line business.' ... more   less
