“DAHAB's BEST KEPT SECRET...Luxury, style, and relaxation”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This place was out of this world and UNREAL. We stayed there from May 28th 2013 until June 2nd. What is even crazier is that we initially only planned to stay two nights but extended our stay based on this amazing resort. There are NO PICTURES that can truly relay how gorgeous this place is. You have to see it to believe it. Before I give my review, I will say that not EVERYTHING was 5 stars but overall this place was TOP TOP TOP. We met several people from Holland and Germany who said this was their 4th or 5th stay at Le Meridient which was very encouraging. When we arrived it was at 30% occupancy but continued to grow during our stay. It was also in the low season when we were there.

THE PERKS:
Beautiful lobby, lounges, infinity pool that was amazing, sea water pools, and great shisha/hookah lounge on the terrace outside the lobby that overlooked the pool and sea. The breakfast was delicious with the omelette bar by Chef Saber. So delicious. They had plenty of fresh fruit as well as hot items. The dinner selection was always themed and very delicious. I loved the fact that they had brown rice on certain nights. Not many Egyptian hotels are conscious of such healthy things. The bathrooms in the rooms, the lobby, and ANYWHERE in the hotel were so clean; it was something else. I have been to Egypt many times and never thought I would find bathrooms so clean and well kept as I did at this resort. The beaches had plenty of great snorkeling near the resort. They had wind surfing as well. Most of the staff was great like Mr. Bassam, Mr. Gerges, Mr. Nasr, Mr Ahmed from Shisha lounge, Mr Ashraf Ramadan, Mr Ossama kamel, Mr. Attia from reservations, Mr. Attef, Mr. Mohamed from front desk. They were fantastic staff really. There was a sauna and steam room. The grounds were beautifully kept with orange, red, and white flowers everywhere. There was a few spots of dead grass near some of the pools but honestly not a big deal and does not relay the full experience of the resort.

THE CONS:
The sheets in the room were NOT changed because I kept track of any stains and they were always there. This was all 5 days they were not changed. This could be better. Also, on Friday afternoon they had no one on the beach except one or two waiters but no one to help with the towels or opening the umbrella because they were all at prayer and had no one covering their area. The recreation people were not attentive to all guests and usually went to the young ladies in bikinis and ignored others. Some guests mentioned to me that they found it annoying when the recreation people would interrupt their sleep or relaxation in order to talk. Two woman commented that sometimes the recreation people were a bit too friendly. The jacuzzi had a TON of flies and moths in it and was not cleaned the whole time we were there which is probably because the recreation staff were too busy socializing with the young women at the pool. The steam room did not work on some days and also smelled awful. Also, TOO MANY CATS. It was a bit ridiculous about the cats. It was quite annoying because my sister is TERRIFIED of cats and we stopped eating dinner at the pool side and went inside because the cats would harass us at dinner meowing for some hand outs. There was literally a mother cat with her babies there. The staff mentioned they have tried to set them free in the mountains but that they keep coming back, but that makes no sense to me. The cats were not consistent with the luxury and style of the resort.

Even with all the negatives I mentioned, this place as still a 5 star TOP EXPERIENCE. My family and I left wishing we could stay longer and plan to return in the next 6 months. My family members are very rarely impressed by anything and they found this place to be really great.

In my opinion the best hotel in Egypt so far.
- No animation, very friendly staff
- Very good breakfast including fresh orange juice etc.
- Good dinner buffet
- both snorkeling and surfing great
- nice architecture (cool rooms even without using the very decent and great A/C.

Room Tip: Best are the rooms down in front of the sea, but probably most expensive, too ...

We stayed at Le Meridien in November 2012 and had a lovely week. All the staff, especially the breakfast chef were really friendly. The rooms, pools etc were clean and well maintained. There is a reasonably priced beach cafe for drinks and lunch. The restaurant is a little pricey and has a limited menu but we ate there when we didn't take taxis/shuttle into Dahab in the evening, and so didn't try the buffet menu. The snorkeling off the jetty was great and we saw an octopus and loads of fish. We would definitely go back there. They could use a few more pods on the beach and round the pool for when it gets really hot as these tend to get taken in the morning.

After reading previous reviews re this hotel I thought that I was onto a winner! How wrong can one person be!
Lets do the good first: Ossama - front desk was a superb guy, a real ambassador for the hotel. Fantastic service nothing was too much trouble for him. This guy needs to be doing the customer service training for the hotel!
Now the bad, neither the bar staff nor the waiters did anything remotely like good customer service. There wasnt a smile, good morning, hello or anything. They just didnt want to be there or so it was perceived by myself. This is a 5star hotel and you would expect really good service and unfortunately that wasnt forthcoming from them. This was a real disappointment to me after experiencing such excellent service on previous trips to Egypt. The hotel was only about 1/5 to 1/4 full so their attitude couldnt be blamed on stress!! I wouldnt stay here again however I would most certainly revisit the restaurants in Dahab especially Ali Baba which more than lived up to its reputation - such friendly helpful staff! Maybe they should change places with the hotel staff!

We just got back from our fabolous holiday in Le Meridien Dahab and would like to share our experiences with other travelers.
The hotel is simply great! I have been to egypt 3 times before (not to Dahab) and this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. They have really 5 stars; I mean European 5 stars.
The hotel is nestled between the mountains of Dahab in a quiet surrounding, the sea is cristal clear with beautiful colours, they have an own house reef where you will see beautiful fish all day long; the pools are just wonderful, especially the infinity pool and the salt water pool.
Customer relations are great; everything the hotel "touches" will be more than ok. They arrangend a breakfast box for us when we went on our trip without even asking for it, a late night dinner at our room, lovely prepared. One day I wished to eat at the Vie Restaurant and wanted to choose from the dinner menue, also this was absolutly no problem.
Breakfast is delicious, they have their own cooks making you eggs, waffels etc.
Staff is extremely attentive, funny, and helpful without waiting for tips. Of course they like them but they do not behave like that because they expect them. I really appreciate this kind of behaviour. Prices at the restaurants and bars are more than fair for a superb hotel like this, eg one beer 30 egyptian pound, one delicous pizza 55 egyptian pound, 1, 5 liter of water 16 egypitan pound.
I also would like to comment two previous reviews, one that tells that this hotel is not good for people with kids because they can`t bring the strollers down to the beach. That is simply not true. It only takes more time, because the road makes some curves around the staircase. When is was there a lady in a wheelchair was also spending her holidays in Le Meridien and her husband could easily guide her down to the beach. Nevertheless recreation guys always helped them.
The other review I really did not understand was about the pool beeing dirty. This simply can not be. I saw recreation guys cleaning the pool every morning, the salt water pool was completely cleanded one day. And the issue about the bill: Every grown up human being should check a bill before signing it. We also had a small issue about one wrong bill but I think this was a mistake. We have only singend for 2 drinks and on the final bill there was a charge for 4 drinks. This could easily be arrangend as we only singend for 2 drinks and so of course they did not charge us. When the waiters do have stress this can happen!

As we are compeltely satisfied I only have some suggestions to make. Sleeping quality was not always perfect because we have been surrounded with families and kids in the other rooms. I think this could be easily handled when you put together people with no kids next to each other ( of course when they have booked the same room type) and families with kids also next to each other. The walls are really thin and we were able to hear a lot of noises. The equipment would be there for a good nights sleep, beds are very comfortable, rooms are spacious and extremely clean.
The other thing was during the special BBQ evening at the beach. I think the first two tables were placed to close to the stage where the fire breather was making his show. I saw people standing up and watching from more distance as ashes were falling around.

Special thanks to Ossama Kamel, who is a very good organizer and made our stay really pleasent. We already recommended this hotel to our family and friends and we will definitely come back!

This was our second trip to Dahab and previously we had stayed at the Ibis Styles. Both hotels are on the lagoon.

Le Meridien is much more slick and polished. The reception we received was amazing and friendly, the rooms were very nice and comfortable. There were four swimming pools and the restaurant next to the pools is very good.

Before we went we were told Le Meridien is the best of the hotels along the lagoon. For our purposes I preferred the Ibis. The rooms didn't have the same finish and it didn't feel as upmarket but, for kids, it was much better. For a start it is flat where Le Meridien is on a hill with lots of steps. So strollers are a bit of a hassle at the latter. Ibis is much greener with lots of space for the kids to run around. It also made the holiday feel less like a post apocalyptic trip. The beach at Ibis is much nicer too.

I think if you are a couple without kids then Le Meridien might do it for you. But if you have kids, like space and like greenery then the Ibis is a better choice.

I should say though that the staff at Le Meridien were very helpful and polite.

We recently stayed at Le Meridien in Dahab and it was wonderful. The hotel has the most amazing view. We stayed on the beach front and were able to wake up to a sea view each morning. The food and service were very good and staff were friendly. Just a few things to make it perfect. The gym needs an overhaul, add some free weights and decent treadmill as a start. Would also be good if the lobby cafe opened before 11am so guests could get an expresso coffee in the morning. Other than that we had a fantastic stay. A beautiful property.
