"Amazing hotel close to the beach, beautiful reefs"
We stayed at Le Meridien Dahab resort for a week in March 2014 and it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The customer service was exceptional, everybody was so friendly and welcoming. The manager on duty was very attentive and whenever he saw us, he came to check how we are doing and whether we are enjoying the holiday. We had only breakfast included in the package so we were having a lunch and dinner in the Vie restaurant where the food was amazing. We tried Egyptian meals (lentil soup – delicious!) and also international dishes like pizza and pasta. We liked their pizza so much, that we called it “Egyptian pizza”. The resort is very spacious and all facilities are just two steps away, so you can have a lunch on the beach if you like. The hotel has a private beach and you can do snorkelling. We saw amazing fishes and reefs. If you are adventures, you can arrange for a snorkelling trip to Blue Hole or Napoleon. We did the snorkelling there and it was spectacular! The resort is very clean and the rooms are beautifully designed. We honestly had the best time ever. I would recommend this place to everybody and probably we will come back there next year. The hotel is only an hour driving from Sharm El Sheik airport but we are glad we decided to go a bit away from popular and crowded Sharm El Sheik area as Dahab is a lovely and you will never get bored. For the sport fanatics, the resort has a gym and tennis court.
The hotel's location is superb, especially if you enjoy swimming (25m pool, water temperature OK in early November), wind-surfing, or diving (Sinai divers - very safe and reasonable charges, are on site).
It is a shame that the Hilton franchise is ending at the end of December 2013. The hotel (owned by MisterHotels of Egypt) doesn't meet Hilton international standards for 5* but is more than good enough for me.
The value for the price we paid was outstanding.
