Ciao Nuweiba Hotel
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Nuweiba
Reviewed November 24, 2011

This is a hotel for anyone who wants to spend several days in quiet and peaceful place. I stayed for three days and 2 of them I was absolutely alone in the hotel. The rooms are nice and decorated in Egyptian style. The staff is friendly and the breakfasts are good. The Nuweiba village with some nice small restaurants and several other hotels and camps is 5 kilometers away - about 1 hour walking or 5 minutes by taxi. The hotel has nice pool and private beach.

But anybody who wants action, nightlife and things like this, should pick another location then Ciao Hotel.

We stayed here on our way to and from Cairo it's a great find, the staff are lovely and great value for money. Sadly Egypt is suffering and especially in this area so there were very few other guests but the pool was spotlessly clean, we felt safe and it's has a very peaceful location. Food was very good and they looked after our precious wheels! We enjoyed our stay so much on the way to Cairo that we went straight back there on the way back. It may seem a little run down but so do all the hotels along this stretch where most of them are closed anyway. we enjoyed the friendly staff and quiet location. Rooms were very clean and the beer was cold!

Ok, the staff may be friendly enough but this place is an absolute dump.

I don't know what time of year or how long ago the other reviewers had been, but I can tell you that arriving at this place was for me a scary experience and the photos that have been posted up here look nothing like what we saw.

We caught a taxi from Dahab to Nuweiba as we were going to stay a night and then head to Jordan. We'd already paid for our two nights accommodation, but on arrival, asked our taxi to wait for us while we inspected the place before being abandoned there.

For starters, the front doors were locked on our arrival, which was a bit concerning, as in, why?? When we walked through to look at the place, it was like walking through an abandoned old hotel in the middle of the desert. Think about the movie, Dusk till Dawn...that's the feeling we had while walking through the place, like it wouldn't be safe to stay. The pool looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years, we spotted one other couple there and apart from that there was no one else there. The beach looked nice enough but again was deserted apart from bedouin women waiting to pounce and sell us things as soon as we wondered down.

We hopped straight back in the taxi and headed back for Dahab.

Maybe it was the wrong time of year or a bad time, but this place was deserted, run down and just had a general feeling of abandonment to it. A place I didn't feel safe staying at. We didn't even bother asking for our money back. As far as we were concerned, they could keep it, but no way were we staying.

On our way from St. Catherine we had an overnight layover in Nuweiba and decided to stay at the Ciao Hotel.
I was very pleased with how quickly they picked us up from the bus station. From the time I called to let them know we were ready, it took them less than 5 minutes.
When we arrived at the hotel to check in we were impressed with how kind the employees were. We felt like everybody was at our beck and call and 100% attention was focused on our needs.

During check in we were treated to an upgrade. When we were ready for dinner, they drove us to the restaurant of our choice.

The suite was so nice and clean. The bathroom was spotless.

There was WIFI internet covering thew hole area of the hotel.

When we were ready to head to the border at 6am, they were ready and waiting for us.
I would highly recommend this hotel especially if you need to have a budget stay.

A friend and I stayed at this friendly, hospitable and charming hotel.
If you're looking for a modestly price hotel, though that offers all that you require for a perfect stay in Sinai (a working and quiet AC, refrigerator in room, clean, swimming pool, peaceful and quiet, friendly staff and good food this is the place for you !!!
Ideal for a short relaxing break in Sinai, 45min drive to Taba.

Ciao Hotel is on the coast but 90 minutes walk to either the port or what they call the ‘City’. Each are a LE20 taxi ride away and both composed of a few tourist shops, supermarkets and odd restaurants. The hotel is isolated and is amongst a number of about 15 hotels, most are abandoned, just a few with only one or two guests. Rooms are reasonable but not very clean. Shower is very slow and ‘hit and miss’. There is a lovely, clean swimming pool and lots of sunbeds with parasols both around the pool and on the beach. Also on the beach are surprisingly cool Bedouin type shelters with carpets and cushions. Free Wi-Fi is only in reception and usually works. Food is outstanding as was the service and the staff were pleasant and helpful but I am afraid that is where it ends.
It is difficult to eat, especially breakfast, with the amount of flies, which land on your head and your food. We ate as quickly as we could whilst wafting them away.
The gardens and pool are worked on constantly but time would have been better spent simply cleaning the guests’ toilets; ours was not cleaned before or whilst we were there! The beds were made each day and clean towels made into exotic shapes but why not clean the shower heads so they would spray. No attempt seems to be made to reduce flies in the restaurant, like closing the windows and putting on the air-con; an ultra violet fly killer would have helped. Sorry, but the management does not seem to understand the requirements of western peoples.
The hotel at £22 per night for two including breakfast was a very good price and you could think that we should not complain. If you really want to be away from everyone and can put up with flies then there is nothing seriously wrong with this hotel. But can you? We thought we could but gave up after a week.
