“One week of total relaxation”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

My boyfriend took me here for a chance to get away and relax whilst he enjoyed the kitesurfing and windsurfing facilities on the hotels private beach. The rooms were big, clean and comfy. The food however was very basic but we put that down to it being out of peak season. Every single member of staff were amazing and couldn't do enough to help us. We made really good friends with the entertainment organisers and a few other staff. The hotel is gorgeous, flowers and greenery everywhere, we shall definatly be going back

We were looking for a few day's break, and weren't sure what we would find in Dahab in early 2013, but we took the chance. Obviously security in Egypt as a whole is a concern, but our extended two weeks (all 14 nights at the Mercure Hotel) in the seaside town confirmed that there is much hope for tourism in the country and for the good people of Egypt as a whole. I visited Dahab in 1997 and the idea to visit a second time was a spontaneous decision. My memories were confirmed...This part of the Gulf of Aqaba is very beautiful. If you want some of the best weather in the world, Dahab has it. i.e. Ideal sea water temperature (great for swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing etc., excellent air temperature (even if it get's above 35 degrees celcius the pleasant breeze moderates the high temperature) plus low humidity. A great mix ! The backdrop to the Mercure Hotel is spectacular. Poolside at sunset, facing west, is sublime. The white ibis visitors agree . Breakfast is very generous and varied. The felafel, not a usual morning choice, were the best we have had anywhere in the world. (Kudos to Rogun the chef.) The rooms are spacious, clean and the peaceful whilst the quiet ambience at night facilitates a good sleep. If you want some action there is much to enjoy in the resort...The Private Secure Beach; Tennis; Snooker; Table Tennis; The Pool; Sauna/Spa; Nightly Entertainment : Games, Cards, Singing, Dancing etc; The Shisha Lounge; Cigar Lounge; Gymnasium etc. etc. plus all the water activities. Facilities for families are great. (A kid's centre is available.) Really, the hotel offers something for everyone, singles, couples, families and groups.

You can be in the best place in the world but without the right people, things don’t feel right. (Many hospitality venues in the world suffer from a “lack of soul”.) This problem does not apply here. The Mercure Dahab staff were all attentive, positive, friendly, helpful and professional. Special thanks to Naiem; Zekaria; Mena; Dedo; Maha; Azus, Fadi, Mohammed; Khalid; Ramadan, Mamdu and Mahmoud.

Five Stars for the Mercure Dahab. Accor should be proud...

Prayers for Egypt !

Large hotel complex set into the hillside giving rooms beautiful, east facing,views. The terrace/balcony is lovely to sit out in at any time of the day. Public areas are large and spacious which meant the hotel did feel rather empty during my stay when it was not busy, I am sure the atmosphere will be more lively when it has higher occupancy rates.

All staff were friendly and approachable and you could see them working to maintain the facilities when they were not serving guests. The whole complex looks very clean and the pool area is as clean as I have seen in Egypt.

Many of the rooms have interconnecting doors and I did find that I could hear the next room moving around and talking quite readily, as well as hearing their TV. However leaving the air con on provided a form of noise blocking and I was not unduly disturbed by the other guests. I slept well each night of my stay, but did need the air con on to keep the room at a comfortable temperature for sleep.

Buffet breakfast and dinner were very much the usual Egyptian style and there was always plenty of food available. I find the buffet food a little bland in Egypt in general and this was the case here. I had a burger delivered by room service and really enjoyed that one evening. I found the snack food provided at the pool were good and a nice option for lunch.

Wifi is available in the lobby and bar area but I found it a little intermittent on my phone and could not connect from my PC. I know other people were having a similar experience so if you rely on network connectivity make sure you have an alternative. It is good for keeping in touch occasionally during your stay.

The beach area is well maintained and there is a short jetty that allows you to enter the water past the coral. There are lots of fish down there that are easy to watch whether swimming or snorkelling. The kite surfing school is at one side of the beach, the dive centre at the other.

I visited the spa and the massage was very good and the staff very friendly. You will find them down by the pool and beach so look out for them if this is something you are interested in.

The hotel is a taxi ride from Dahab and you must factor that cost in if you plan to visit the town and want to eat there (lots of options for both lunch and dinner at reasonable prices).

If you like a self contained, resort hotel then you will be happy here. I had a pleasant stay and felt very much at ease here.

I visited that hotel last year and going again. It left only positive impressions. First of all it is not crowded. Very quiet, half empty. We had really good rest, good food. There's fantastic view from room, actually from any part of the hotel. It has very polite staff... What else, There are nice clean big rooms, and any locations are good. But I would not recommend to old people who has problems with locomotor system as it could be quite problematic to walk around. Hotel is located on quite steep bank.

Room Tip: any locations are good

I booked the hotel directly with the assistant manager Mena Naseem. He was very helpful with correspondences and organisation. The hotel was superb value for money.
During our stay in Egypt we didn't see any trouble at all.
All of the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough to help us! In particular the restaurant staff and the staff at the main pool bar were very helpful.
The hotel was set on a hillside with excellent views of the sea. It was quite a steep walk down to the sea but Mohamed was very good at giving us lifts in the hotel buggy!
The food was excellent although the presentation could have sometimes been a little better. What was particularly good was the food and atmosphere at the New Year Gala Dinner. We had a very enjoyable night.
We opted for interconnecting family rooms in the Superior area as we had 2 children aged 8 and 10. The rooms were nice, clean and tidy. Being in the superior area we had a pool to ourselves for most of the fortnight. This pool was very nice and heated but could have just done with being a few degrees warmer for this time of year. The pool boy gave us excellent service with providing towels and drinks.
We had an excellent holiday and will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are excellent

We have been back to Dahab twice. Last September we stayed at the Mercure and we had a great time. Our room was right at the top but we didn't mind the walk down to the pool and beach. Even though it was very breezy we enjoyed our two weeks relaxing. The staff were very friendly. Sharif @ the main lounge bar, Wahlid @ pool bar and Mehmood from the dinner hall, Habiba who does a fantastic massage. We learnt so much Arabic from all of them! The food was great and we loved trying the Egyptian menu. So much food and so many different deserts to choose from we were spoilt for choice. The free shuttle from the hotel going into Dahab town was good if you want to do a bit of shopping or for an evening meal. Thank you for a lovely stay,we will definitely be going again.

Room Tip: If you want to be centre to reception and the pool/beach then go for the room starting 300
