“Perfect place to stay in Dahab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here over Christmas to do some diving, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The apartment is very clean, modern, and it feels like a little oasis in the town. We got the charm of a boutique hotel with the convenience of being close to fruit and veg stores, the drugstore, the liquor store (though limited selection) and everyone was very friendly. Tim, one of the owners, is a local who really cares about his guests' stay. He arranged a few days of diving with us with Mirage Divers, which is a very professional dive outlet nearby. The apartments are a bit of a walk from the downtown, but you'll be happy it is. It's away from the hard sells and hagglers, but close enough to easily get there by foot. And if you like cats and goats, you're in luck - plenty of them around, though you're protected by the wall and gate to the place. Bring slippers if you don't like a cold floor, as the apartment and many places here have tiles.

A group of 4 stayed here in november and couldnt of asked for better! the location is perfect if you want a sense of the reall Dahab! the people are friendly and welcoming and there is everything you need within a short stroll! some may be taken back at first as the streets are not so clean and there are a lot of half built buildings, but if you are wanting a little culture then its perfect.
The apartments are immaculate with a lovely garden. Every need you could have are taken care of. the apartments and grounds are tended by Abdu who is around most of the time and if always ready to help with any request.
I would throughly reccomend these apartments.
Tim will also help you with organising trips if you want all of which were well organised.

Sea stars apartments. Excellent location in Assala district. Apartments very clean and well furnished and lots of information regarding the local area like where to eat, buy beer and hire horses etc etc. Tim the owner is a cracking person and nothing too much trouble; he organised a trip with the Bedouin for us and made sure our time with them was a true cultural experience not to be forgotten. Also took us on a diving taster experience which was fantastic. He could also provide the full PADI diving course if we wanted; he is very professional and well organised in a manner to suit our experience level. The handyman Abdu is also a lovely bloke and again nothing too much trouble. The owners organised all transfers and made sure everything went as smooth as possible. I would recomend these apartments to anyone. We spent most evenings on the roof top Arisha taking in the local area and listening to the sounds of a true Egyptian city. The grounds are surrounded by a lovely garden area and everything within a small compound; mainly to keep the goats from eating the flora.

Room Tip: There are upper and lower floor apartments. Both have the same access to the roof so no real differe...

We had a wonderful time in Dahab and staying at Seastars! The apartment is really lovely - spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The air conditioning in the living room and the bedrooms was great. The rooftop terrace was amazing and we loved spending the evenings up there.
Tim was brilliant and helped us so much! he was also so so patient, dealing with all our indecisiveness :)
He took two of us diving, and they absolutely loved it. He was so helpful and made such a difference to our trip!

It was also so brilliant that the apartment came with things like tea, sugar, a bottle of milk, some cheese, eggs, ketchup etc - this was so helpful!!

The apartment is a really lovely walk up the beach from the main strip of restaurants but is a 2 minute walk to shops where we could buy food and other things, and also to where we could catch a taxi (a pick up :) ) to further down the beach.

We really enjoyed Dahab, we found everyone there to be very friendly and relaxed and people trying to sell you things were chilled, compared to how aggressive we have found them in other parts of Egypt. Funnily enough the best food we had was from the dodgiest looking 'restaurant' in the Dahab centre, (where the shops and taxis are close to where the apartment is). We had chicken, rice and traditional type Egyptian foul etc. Most of the restaurants we ate at during the day, the food was pretty average, but the setting of sitting right on the water, and the fact that they don't care that you're sitting there all day while you alternate between swimming, snorkeling, sleeping, reading etc, more than makes up for it! Places that don't sell alcohol are even relaxed about you buying it somewhere else and drinking it there!

I was surprised about not being able to flush toilet paper down the toilet - but I suppose we should have known this would be the case...
Also remember to bring soap.

We would definitely go back!

This was my first time in Dahab and won't be my last! I will definitely be returning to the Sea Stars Apartments as I couldn't ask for more. I've been to Egypt many times before, however I've never enjoyed staying somewhere so much.
I travelled alone this time and I was made very welcome by Michelle and Abdu (Tim & Sian where away on holiday) who made sure I was always ok.
The apartment itself was lovely, clean and spacious and the welcome pack was a great little touch.
I've been to Sharm on a number of occasions, but if you want to get away from the hectic tourist places then head to Dahab and stay at the Sea Stars as you'll feel part of the 'Real Egypt'.
I can't wait to return and recharge my batteries whilst sat on the roof terrace.
Such a fantastic place and can't wait to return! Thank you :-)
