Our stay was most enjoyable. The guys at marine gardens were friendly, helpful and fun. We felt relaxed and at home during our stay. Jimmy cooked up delicious and cheap food, in the comfortable dining area at the camp. Manager and receptionist were lovely and accommodating. Views are very beautiful from the camp, the sea lapping almost by your door. Very peaceful area around the corner and away from the main tourist strip past the lighthouse. Keep food in shared kitchen away from the clever (and many) ants that sniff it out right away. A variety of activities are provided by the camp, hiking, diving and trekking, with staff always there to help you. We hired bikes for 30le for half a day from Sinbads next door although bikes more than in a little bad condition with much needed care and maintenance but they get you around Dahab nicely. (Bike mechanics get on it!) Recommend staying here and would go again. Thanks y'all! Miss you already.
- 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
