We visited the Dahab Plaza a year ago and had nothing but praise for it and it’s owner Emad Soliman.. so of course, for our return visit there could be no other choice. What a surprise we had.. Emad has been working ceaselessly on his hotel and we were met with a new courtyard, refurbished rooms and a beautiful new swimming pool! Rather than sitting around bemoaning the lack of tourists due to the recent revolution, he used the time wisely and has made some lovely improvements.
Just coming into the beautifully lit courtyard late at night after a lovely meal on the seafront after a fantastic day’s diving is such a pleasure. It’s also nice to know that in Dahab, the money you spend on your holiday is going into the Egyptian economy; rather than being spirited straight out of the country by some multinational hotel company in Sharm El Sheikh..
..And for anyone who’s wondering, Dahab felt like the safest place in the world for me as a female and a tourist. We went as a couple but we’re not joined at the hip and i spent some time wandering about on my own. The revolution has had no impact on the diving community there, or indeed the whole area.. So if you like friendly honest people, lovely diving, good accommodation, and very reasonable prices, Dahab Plaza is the place and now is the time!

What more could you want!

Well trained staff, a safe place (I once let my door wide open for a day, nothing was missing and not even the Dahab cats got in :-) and a very nice place with a good pub. The beach bar was chilling, so was the pool, I loved it. Did a diving course with the diving school on the facility (very friendly and excellent teachers!). Prices reasonable, so I would recommend it. May be not, if you are lokking for a white sand beach hotel, since the beach is rocky. But everything is reachable in short distant. The restaurant was good, but ask for pancakes for breakfast, they are not on the buffet. These were the best I had for a long time! I will be back next month. Great place!

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.
"nice and quiet away from traffic. very reasonably"
i felt like home away from home.
i think the main reason is this hotel is a family operated business, so everyone acts for the hotel's and guest's best interest,
the whole staff is young and the food is beyond anyone's expectation
other available entertainment facilities and the night activities by the hotel management make no need for leaving the hotel at all during your stay.
"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.
I went as a lone female traveller and had a fantastic time diving and doing yoga at the hotel. The dive centre is first class, they are very safety conscious and provide a professional, friendly service. The yoga was also wonderful and I met lots of other women who were staying at the hotel and travelling alone for a week of relaxation. The hotel itself is great value for money, the rooms are clean and simple, with pretty balconies and domed roofs. I stayed in a mountain view room which did actually have a bit of sea view and was quieter than some of the sea view rooms which are closer to the road. The food is excellent and the pool area is beautiful. Had an incredible week, thank you Bedouin moon hotel and Reef 2000 staff for an amazing holiday!
We arrived into a tranquil atmosphere and warm welcome from the hotel staff and were presented with a nice glass of hibiscus juice. We were a party of six consisting of two couples and two teenagers. All three rooms were very spacious and well thought through, with a great dressing room area, and separate sitting area, as well as the very roomy bedroom. All rooms have a pool view with either a personal balcony or terrace area in which to sit and relax. The pool area is serviced throughout the day with clean towels and also has very comfortable sun beds.
Throughout our stay of two weeks there was consistency in the attention to detail and it was clear that every member of staff worked well and pre-empted the needs of their guests.
The restaurant was fronted by the excellent Tito and his dedicated team, all food and drinks were very tasty, with a varied menu including pizzas made from a proper pizza oven. Glasses, utensils, and crockery were immaculate.
All members of staff exuded a passion and pride in the Sheikh Ali Hotel and were always looking for ways to exceed their guests expectations. Their award of best hotel in Dahab is still very much well deserved. Thank you Sheikh Ali.
