Three of us stayed in an upper apartment while visiting our daughter in Dahab. The booking process was simple and the owners Tim and Sian organised a very reasonably priced minibus from the airport at Sharm and were very helpful, while Abdu was a cheerful, helpful and ubiquitous presence. The apartment was clean, air conditioned and comfortable. It was a 10-15 minute walk or a short (and cheap) taxi ride from the many excellent restaurants and cafes along the seafront. The (one and only ) off licence was literally just round the corner and sells Egyptian wine and beer. It was pleasant sitting up on the Bedouin style roof terrace in the warm early evenings, sipping (duty free) G and Ts' while enjoying the call to prayer from the various mosques. There is plenty to do in Dahab including diving and snorkelling, trips in boats, rides on camels and a wonderful trip into the desert which we enjoyed with our charming Bedouin guide. Local traders , while keen to get our custom were less pushy than we found in the Nile valley. Dahab is very reasonably priced compared with he UK of much of Europe.
We hope to go back some time.
