“Great place - excellent location, clean, really helpful owners”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Location is excellent - you can see the sea from the 2nd floor apartment and it is not in the main tourist part which makes it really quiet. The apartment is stunning - very tastefully decorated. Transfer from airport was easy, Tim (owner) met us at the apartment and went through everything we needed to know. Fridge was stocked for us, which was great! Loads of help on where to go, trips, etc and we organised diving with Tim which was a great experience. Restaurants, etc very close by or easy walk to the main lighthouse area.

Room Tip: The top floor apartment has lovely views

We have just got back from an 8 day stay in Dahab at Sea Stars. What a fantastic place.

The apartments were clean and cosy. We Organised our transfers from Sharm through Sian and Tim and we were greeted by a air-conditioned mini bus on time. We arrived at the apartments and were greeted by Abdul and Hassan who took our bags is for us. Tim arrived shortly afterwards and showed us around and made sure we had everything. in the fridge there were beers and water. and the bare essentials of bread, butter, milk etc..

We spoke to Tim about Diving, and other activities which he organised for all of us at better or the same price as anywhere else.

Overall I would love to go back to Dahab and if I did I would stay here again. A big thank you to Tim for making everything so easy and relaxed. Hope to be back soon.

We have just returned from a family holiday to Dahab. By some stroke of luck we found this apartment on line and booked it, attracted by the great reviews and the fact that Tim the owner also organises diving in small groups. The apartment was really well equipped, located close to the beach and close to the local shops. There was a wonderful small garden around the apartments that was kept immaculate by Abdul and Hassan, who also saw to all our needs and sorted out any small problems one might encounter. The diving organised by Tim was fantastic and we saw loads of wonderful fish and Tim took great pleasure in telling us afterwards what new fishes we had seen. The diving was never rushed and the equipment good and it was a pleasure to be diving with my two boys and Tim or one of his instructors alone. Everyone was extremely friendly and Sian was very efficient with all the e-mails exchanged pre-arrival. I could happily go back today and enjoy another couple of relaxing weeks in Sea Stars Apartments.

Room Tip: Great for families with teenagers

We stayed in one of the top floor apartments so had a gorgeous sea view from one side of the balcony, and a view of the village from the other. Located on the edge of the Bedouin Village, you get a taste of the real Dahab which we absolutely loved.
The apartment had two big bedrooms, so would be perfect for two couples.
Airport transfers were all arranged for us by the owners, and they even provided a 'welcome pack' of Sakara Gold beer, cheese and bread. Heaven!
The lounge got the afternoon sun, so after a day’s diving with one of the owners, Tim, we used to flop on the sofa with the balcony doors open and sunbathe. Bliss!
We cooked in on a couple of nights and ate on the amazing roof terrace, with views across Dahab.
Tim sorted out all our diving, even arranging a boat for our last day. He made sure we went to sites off the beaten track – or arrived before the other divers at the popular sites –so we pretty much had each dive site to ourselves. Saw loads of turtles and the coral is just incredible.
Sea Stars has games, books and local maps by the apartment gates and kayaks if you want to be more adventurous.
Make sure you get a massage – we went to a ‘spa’ on the rooftop of the Amanda Hotel (basically a hut with two massage tables) and had an hour long massage for 160 Egyptian Pounds. It was one of the best massages I’ve ever had, so don’t be put off by the location!
We’d definitely recommend Sea Stars… and can’t wait to go back.

Excellent communications and information when booking. Arranged transfer at airport very smooth. Welcomed by Tim, Abdul, and Hassan at gate of apartments as we pulled up. Clean and roomy apartment -we had the 1st floor end one - a very comfortable home for two weeks. Minor problems fixed almost instantly. Excellent fast wi-fi. Loved the location - on the edge of the Bedouin quarter and slightly off the main tourist area but close enough to walk there in 10 minutes or just use the many excellent local restaurants, good shops, and small hotel facilities.

These beautiful apartments are hidden behind a gate within meticulously attended gardens (thanks to Abdul!) within a couple of minutes walk of both shops and beach in a residential area of Dahab.
The excellent service began with initial email contact with Sian and was continued on arrival by Tim and Abdul. They were never intrusive but could always be relied on to be around if there was a problem.
The apartments are very well appointed and the welcome pack in the fridge extensive. It made a very comfortable base whilst visiting my daughter who lives in Dahab.
For a really easy, excellent (and inexpensive) meal - try the chicken takeaway - just turn right at the square and follow your nose!!

We've been coming back to stay at the apartments for the last 4 years now and have never been disapppointed! The accommodation is a "home from home"....clean, spacious and comfortable! The apartments are stocked with basic provisions and the appliances such as the cooker, kettle, fridge, toilet, shower and air conditioning/fan are all in good working condition and well maintained! People staying in the other apartments when we've been there have always shared our sentiments about how nice the accommodation is! Tim and Sian seem to think of everything to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable!

The roof terrace has the most amazing views of the sea, palm trees, Assala and the surrounding mountains. Listening to the call to prayer and watching the sunset makes it a really chilled out spot! The location is great as it's out of the busier part of Dahab and in my opinion more relaxed. There are a number of supermarkets close by to get most of the provisions that you'll need during your stay and a great choice of places to eat out...either in walking distance or a quick taxi drive away in the centre of Dahab. Abdul is always on hand to help out with anything and diving with Tim has always been a cool experience....really relaxed and chilled out!

As you can probably tell, we've always enjoyed our trips to Dahab! It's been cool to see that every year we've come back, the apartments retain their charm and Tim and Sian's set-up continues to be small and personal...it's just a perfect place to stay and explore the dive sites around Dahab...peace to the reef! :-)
