“Thank you for looking after us so well”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Beautiful setting. Breakfast looking straight out to sea and across to the coastline of Saudi Arabia. Rooms looking over the pool through the restaurant through to the sea. Snorkelling straight out from the hotel with amazing fish to see. On the edge of Dahab but 5 mins walk along the coast to the centre. Plenty of shops to browse around where you can good- naturedly haggle with the shop owners. Private taxi transfer arranged by the hotel at half the cost of what you see on the internet. We were incredibly well looked after by the helpful friendly staff. Hotel and site spotlessly clean. A special thank you to Beverley for her advice about the area and the shopping trip. More special "thank yous" to the chef and the waiters for the special meal on our last night and looking after us so well generally; Jimmy for our individually designed trip out to the desert;Sally at Sea Dancer (on site) who master minded our son's Padi certificate and looked after my beginner snorkelling needs by arranging a trip 10 mins up the coast at very low cost to easy access snorkelling in a totally untouristy area with AMAZING fish and coral in huge numbers and finally to the young man who cleaned our room and arranged our towel sculptures every day.

Only things to bear in mind is the pool isn't heated so in the winter its a "plunge" but fine once you are swimming; the access to the sea at the hotel isn't really suitable for small children or people who are unsteady on their feet ; the showers in our rooms were small with a shower curtain that can "cling" a bit but is perfectly clean. That being said the overall experience outweighs those small things.

Dahab is so so quiet due to the travel advice by America and most European countries. However it is hours away from Cairo where the political unrest is. The businesses are struggling so much with the bottom totally having dropped out of the market, most hotels and restaurants being almost empty in the week that we went.

Thoroughly recommended - go and you will not only have a lovely holiday but also feel that you will be helping the people of Dahab by spending your hard earned cash there.

My husband and I stayed at the Acacia hotel in September and knew that we wanted to bring our family here over Christmas when they visited from Canada over Christmas holidays.

Our family (who have been to many resorts and hotels around North America) absolutely loved the connection they made with the hotel staff and the specialized service. When they found out it was my mother-in-law's birthday, they even made a special birthday surprise and had us come to the outdoor "hangout" area where the chef surprised us with a lovely birthday cake, and the other hotel staff treated us to songs and dancing.

(I heard that the meals the Acacia used to serve were not the best, but I think they have a new chef, and we were very impressed with the meal we had there).

There are only two downsides - Beverly is working somewhere else now (we loved seeing her during our last visit!) and the showers are tiny, but everything else is FANTASTIC.

Room Tip: some rooms overlook the pool area (pool is closed in evenings, but people can still hang out on the...

Great group of guys. Well run hotel. We spent 9 days and they were great. They are willing to go above and beyond the normal hotel experience. Amir the hotel clerk is fantastic and super helpful! The guy who cleaned our room mad the best towel animals every day. We loved it.

Close to town but far enough away to feel private. I would stay here again in a heartbeat

Room Tip: Be a bit careful if you are traveling as a couple. Many of the rooms have two twin beds you need to...

We spent a week at the Acacia in May. It is a lovely hotel and nothing is too much trouble for Beverly the manager. The breakfasts are great, the rooms clean and the staff are friendly. There is a brilliant area for snorkeling about 15 minutes walk from the hotel and it is right next to all the bars and restaurants at the sea front. Dahab is an excellent holiday destination and the Acacia is a top notch hotel. Caroline & Andy

Had a brilliant nine days in the lovely Acacia Hotel. Getting to Dahab was made very easy thanks to booking airport transfers with the hotel ($40 each way). All of my emailed queries before the trip were answered very promptly by Beverly who does a fantastic job of looking after the guests. The hotel is spotless and we were amazed at how much time and effort the staff put into cleaning both the rooms (and creating amazing towel origami) and the public areas.

There's a great restaurant attached to the hotel which served delicious food at very reasonable prices. Best veggie burger I've ever had! Breakfast was included and we ate ours by the sea every morning. The Acacia is in a great spot, there are convenience stores, cash points, restaurants and bars all in easy walking distance. If you get tired of sitting by the pool and soaking up the sun you can arrange lots of great trips through Jimmy at the hotel. We went snorkelling and did a trek into the desert and both trips were great experiences.

Really enjoyed my stay l and I hope I get the chance to go back soon.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a balcony room which was well worth the slightly extra cost as we could sit out and h...

Its a perfect place to stay, no matter whether you go there alone or with a friend. It was my second time in dahab and no question i d go back to this hotel. Again it was a wonderful stay in this hotel. Manager beverly does great work and makes sure you have a wonderful holiday. Also apreciated the room service by islam a lot. Not only was it very clean, there was always some special towel creature waiting for us.
Apart from that, nice pool, the best dive center with the unique and also very caring sally inside the hotel area, the seaview and the whole, highly attentive staff, should convince you to go there. You ll feel totally at ease!
