This is a great hotel. Its an honest 2* hotel that has 4* staff service.
Emad ia an incredably interesting, kind and helpful man!!!! He will answer your questions and point s you in the right direction so that you get a fair deal on trips, cab rides and other activities - this is invaluable for those of us not used to haggling on price.
The atomosphere at the hotel, especially around the pool is lovely. Ayman and the rest of the staff are always about to grab you a bottle of free water or make you a drink of tea or coffee! (all free and part of the service)
Best of all was the really interesting international mix of people including Egyptions who were staying at the hotel - great conversations and great fun.
When you stay here you are garenteed that:
1) you wil be VERY WELL looked after!
2) that the money you spend with Emad and the parter diving schools and resturants are locally owned. Tourists are a little to scare in Dahab at the moment - so it was great to be putting money into the local economy rather then giving it to large international corprate hotels,
The rooms are basic and clean and the free wifi - which worked in our room really helpful as well!
Shark (for a fancy night out)
Dive with: Deep Blue Divers - Ayman is fab and the confined water dives are in the shallows of the bay - so you are with the fishes from the very start.
1) Stay at the Dahab Plaza
2) Never pay more then 10 Egy £s to Lagona/Coralia!!
