“Good residence, but a bit far from town”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Nicely presented hotel/ apartments. Clean and stunning views. Probably best suited to a laid back romantic get away, than for two scuba diving friends. Wireless internet was limited to certain areas of the hotel (which, surprisingly, doesn't include the reception/ café). The pretty swimming pool was alarmingly over chlorinated. Kitchen facilities weren't expected, but were then pretty sparse (eg: no mugs)

The estate looks closer to central Dahab on googlemaps than in reality, which is about 7kms. There was no facility at the hotel to hire bikes to make the trip, which was probably a bit far anyway, when considering the temperatures. Taxis are few, but relatively cheap.

The surrounding desert dogs and pretty vocal during the night, which kind of ruins the relaxing sound of the sea

I stayed here with a friend for 6 days. It's just about the last hotel on the beach, about 5KM from town proper. It was great. Quiet, clean with a nice pool and very caring staff members. . The apartment with kitchenette was comfortable and I especially loved having one of the very fat, resident cats visit often. The owner was in Italy but as someone else reported, Mohamed and Salam did a great job playing hosts and guides. Someone was always available to take us into town which only took 10 minutes. We arranged a trip to St. Catherine's Monastery and Colored Canyon through the hotel. I would highly recommend this place if you aren't interested in clubbing it every night in town. It's dark enough to see the stars and quiet enough to hear the waves. I plan on going back soon.

Room Tip: There were two of us. The apartment had a nice sized bedroom with large wardrobe for storing clothes...

We were travelling on extremely limited budget, therefore we had booked two beds at the dormitory, when we arrived Canyon estate, we were more than happy to learn that the dorms were not ready yet but we got upgraded to a two bedroom challet with a pool and sea view, the rooms were extremely spacious and the bathrooms were clean, good stable hot water available anytime. We loved the staff, every single one, always greetings us with smiles and ready to help us at any time. As mentioned before the hotel a little outside of Dahab, but we had no problems finding a ride to and from the city for 25 le. And to be honest, I didnt realy want to leav ethis hotel, with a view like this I can stay there all day!
Although we hadnt met Lorenzo and fredericke during our visit as we were told they were on vacation, we felt like we were in very safe and capable hands. I love the fact that the hotel is in a secluded location where you can enjoy a quite sleep. The food was also quite good, infact I think it was the best we had in Dahab ! Thank you Canyon Estate, we will sure come again, and book the bigger room in advance, because its damn worth it !

I adored The Canyon Estate. I stayed there for 6 days. The place was simple, clean and simply adorable with a stunning view of the sea and the mountains. The staff members were great even though the manager Lorenzo was on holiday in Italy when I stayed there. A special thank you to Mohamed and Salam for making me feel at home.

Stayed for a week here in March and had a really lovely time. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The staff are super friendly and Frederica cooks beautiful Italian dishes every day - amazing!! The location is peaceful and quiet, I went home feeling completely relaxed. Recommended.
