We have just returned from a week at the Dahab. It is a lovely friendly small hotel. The rooms are comfortable and have lovely balcony views over the pool. The staff could not do enough for you, towels provided by the pool and the restaurant was open all day for drinks and snacks.
We were able to get wi fi from our balcony all week and the rooms have a TV.
It takes about 30 minutes to walk along the beach to Dahab, better than walking along the road. I recommend Eldarados Italian Restaurant along ther sea front, lovely meals, delicious Italian ice cream and they serve Prosecco by the glass.
It takes about 1 hour tranfer from the airport which the hotel provided.
We would wholly recommend a stay at the Dahab, quiet, relaxin and peaceful.

Room Tip: Rooms above thr reception if you want wi fi.

The Paradise is not a five star international chain hotel. Thank Heavens. It is, however, a very nice place to stay indeed. The rooms are unpretentious and are what you need if you plan to use them for sleeping (and washing etc!) in rather than spending all day in. The restaurant provides good wholesome food with an italian theme. The pool is clean, and the grounds are pleasingly soothing and green (a rarity in the Sinai).
What stands out are its value for money, its location a (heavy) stones throw from the best snorkelling reef in the area, and the willingness of the staff to do just about anything to make your stay a good one: arranging taxis into town and a good variety of trips around Sinai, advice on where to eat/dive/snorkel/visit/buy things. They made us feel really valued...
As I have said in another review about Luxor, its a real shame that the media hype has scared so many people away from Egypt. We found absolutely nothing scary (well apart form some quite fierce looking fish, and some mildly dodgy driving), and the people are delightfully smiley and helpful.

The hotel was a beautiful location, excellent hosts, clean and good food. Our family snorkeled and relaxed by the Red Sea. The hosts coordinated a trip for us to St. Catharines and Mt. Sinai and to Jordan. We were very happy with our stay there and would love to come back again.

Save yourself some time and just book this hotel now. Seriously. Just do it. Now.

You really want more? Fine...

We just returned from an absolutely idilic 10 days in Paradise. I can't speak highly enough about this truly lovely hotel and Dahab as a whole.

Location: The hotel is located a 5 minute taxi ride from the centre of Dahab. This is a huge plus, as the really adds to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Taxi drivers are always on hand and will take you into town and pick you up whenever you want for 30LE (£3 ) return.

Rooms: We stayed in a 1st floor room and we would recommend doing the same. You have a lovely big balcony with a gorgeous sea view. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, with a huge bed. Each room as a fridge, which was great for keeping some drinks in (particularly as most restaurants don't serve alcohol, so you can keep your BYO wine nice and cool). The rooms could perhaps do with a refurb within he next couple of years, but they are perfectly comfortable and cleaned daily. Special mention must go to the towel artist, who blew us away with their daily creations! SPOILER: The crocodile and elephant were scarily realistic!

WiFi: the WiFi is located in reception and the signal isn't that strong. If you're keen on using it in your room ask to be located in one of the 4 rooms nearest reception (2 on the 1st floor and 2 on the ground floor).

Service: All the staff were simply wonderful. Rarely have I ever experience such friendly and efficient service. Nothing was too much trouble. Special mention must go to Michael, who was absolutely tireless in helping guests. I could give many examples of this service, but this sums ip up perfectly: we took a trip over to the Hilton to spend a day on their beach on the Laguna (£6 per person, but it was a nice change). When we got back we realised my wife had left her book under the sun beds on the beach. We asked Michael if he'd mind giving them a call to see if they had found it. If they had we were going to hop in a taxi the next day to collect it. The next morning, as sat by the pool. Michael strolled over with the book in hand. He had clearly driven over collect the book for us (a 30-40 minute round trip), but he made absolutely no mention of this.

Restaurant: the food at the hotel restaurant was fantastic. Every morning we had a breakfast of fresh fruit, omelettes and pancakes. Thinking about it, we ate way too much... The lunch/evening options are really great too. I highly recommend the House Smoked Chicken sandwich with a Sakar beer! ^_^

Pool: The circular pool was rather chilly in Feb, but we had a few lovely cooling dips towards the end of the stay. Most days we just enjoyed watching the dragon flies circling and swooping around the pool while we worked on our tans!

Diving: there is a dive centre at the hotel, which is connected to Big Blue in town. We were already PADI Open Water certified, so we did a refresher and 4 dives while we were there, getting deep dive certified in the process. The guys at Big Blue were great and the diving is truly glorious! Eel Gardens is a great site if the weather is calm, and the Blue Hole was spectacular!

Conclusion: 5 stars! A wonderfully peaceful and relaxing holiday staying in a hotel that truly cares about its guests.

Room Tip: The WiFi is located in reception and the signal isn't that strong. If you're keen on using i...

While this hotel is not on the main walk in Dahab, that's a good thing! Stayed a week, very clean rooms and toilets, the main pool area is also very nice. It doesn't have access to the beach but that wasn't a problem since we were diving each morning. The food is perfect! Had breakfast and dinner every night and it never failed to impress. Rooms are quiet and comfortable, had a beautiful view of the sea from the balcony and the mountains at the back while i was entering the room. It's only 10 minutes away from the main areas. Dahab Paradise is the #1 place to stay at!

Stayed a week in Dahab (february 2013 - third time I visited the area). Even if the pool was cold (but it's winter, even in Egypt!) and that some equipment aren't brand new anymore, Dahab Paradise is for me definitely the best hotel in Dahab.

The location (10 minutes by car from the town, very cheap taxi - a bit less than 2 euros) is perfect : the sea up front, the desert behind, quiet but still close to everything.

The room : Our room (first floor) was simple in a very "zen" way : so nice to have a warm shower and rest there after a long day. and watching the sunrise from the balcony was a delight. Special mention to the towel artist : every day a different animal..the crocodile of the last day was great. Internet a bit a slow in the room, but good connection from the lobby.

The restaurant : very convenient when you're not in the mood to go back to the city at night. Excellent pizzas & pastas, maybe a lack of traditionnal egyptian food. Taking the breakfast in front of the sea is an excellent way to start your day.

But the best feature of Dahab Paradise is the people who works there : the words "professionnalism", "extreme kindness", are not enough to describe them. Always ready to help us, never loosing their smile, super nice gestures (huge cake for my boyfriend birthday, bottle of egyptian champagne for mine), etc..

A big thanks to the Paradise team for making our stay unforgettable !!
