Sea Stars Apartments
Ranked #8 of 29 Specialty Lodging in Dahab
Reviewed May 23, 2013

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.

We (family of 4 with 2 small boys aged 3 and 6) stayed at the Sea Stars apartments in Dahab in the first week of April and had a wonderful time. Dahab is a perfect location away from the all-inclusive hotels of Sharm El Sheik and Sea Stars is an oasis within Dahab. The apartments are beautifully laid out and the gardens are lovely. Tim is a great host- helpful when needed but not intrusive. We are already planning a return trip next Easter. Finally do not be put off travelling to Dahab we had a fantastic holiday there....

Room Tip: We stayed in a ground floor room and loved sitting outside in the garden once the kids had gone to b...

Stayed here in April, and have been before, it really is a great apartment, beautifully decorated and comfortable, with a fantastic rooftop terrace, where you can relax, listening to the sea and watch the world go by. Owners are great and really helpful, organised a brilliant boat trip while we were there, totally recommend!

I really can't say enough good things about this place. It is on the pricey side for Dahab, but still pretty reasonable by international standards. The flats are beautifully and tastefully decorated in a minimal way that makes you feel quite at home. Clean and comfortable. Lower floor flats face the private garden that is just gorgeous and very tranquil (with a bbq grill that I sadly did not get the chance to use. Upper floor apartments have a sea view, and the rooftop lounge areas are excellent for relaxing and taking in the sunset. A big plus for the welcome pack of beer, eggs, sugar, bread and a few other essentials.

The staff and owners were extremely helpful without being intrusive. The location is also great- a short walk to the town center but nestled a bit off the tourist track so that you are actually in Egypt...with a nice supermarket, produce stand, and bakery just a few feet away.

I travel to Dahab a few times per year and Sea Stars will definitely be my choice from now on.

This was the 4th time we stayed at sea stars apartment, and again everything was perfect. Tim and Sian are friendly and helpful, Abdu attends to every need we might have ( generally a BBQ set up on one if their fabulous roof terrace), the apartments are comfortable and clean, the garden was particularly beautiful this time too!
Based in assalah, every food shop you might need are on your door step, there is even a shop selling beers and Egyptian wine round the corner.
The beach is 2mn away and it is a nice walk to the main hub of dahab.
All there is to think about is the great diving to be had and all the relaxation one can take!
We have been on our own , with our teenage boys, this time with friends and it is always a holiday we want to do again.
Thank you Tim, thank you Sian, see you again soon.

This was out 2nd trip to Sea Star and we really feel it's a holiday we will return to time and time again. Tim and Sian are friendly and helpful, the apartments sparkling, and the little touches of hospitality invaluable. They really care about making your holiday special and listen to what you need to achieve this. Travelled with a 5 year old who had a wonderful time.

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.
