"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.
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!

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!

First off if you want to learn to dive or are a diver who has never visited Dahab, go book your holiday here immediately. If you don't you will be making a mistake you'll regret for the rest of your life! I've just come back from a solo visit to the Tropitel, learned to dive with Kerstin of the Lagona dive centre and had a truly excellent holiday. The thing which makes this place special is the staff, they will bend over backwards to resolve any problems you might have and will do their best to make you feel welcome and happy. The main thing is to say something as soon as it becomes a problem, once you do you'll be impressed with how quickly action is taken. If you want a lot of nocturnal activity and animation teams then probably best book somewhere else because the Tropitel doesn't have any of those. However, if you want a peaceful and relaxing pool holiday, or some of the best diving anywhere on the planet, then you can do a lot worse. I could nitpick about minor stuff with the food and the room but I'm not going to because none of it really mattered to me enough to say anything. I never went hungry and found the room clean and comfortable. The house reef means there's no easy access to the sea from the beach, but just go snorkelling there once and you'll soon realise that what you get more than makes up for it. In terms of location the transfer to Sharm is about an hour but it means you get no noise at from the airport. Like I said, peaceful and friendly.
Perfectly located in a magnificent spot where the sea hugs the feet of the golden Sinai Mountains/ Tropitel Dahab Oasis …More

we actually swamin the sea and not in the pool, but the pool looks wonderful and those in it appeared to be enjoying themselves. Nice location, nice beach. Seems they may have trucked in sand, as their sand was finer and had fewer stones than other hotel beaches.
"All inclusive" means every drink or ice cream you want is already paid for by you. HUGE buffet lunch and dinner is for every guest. So if you want to drink a lot and eat a lot at lunch, go for the all inclusive. If you want to be swimming, snorkeling or diving, windsurfing, etc., 'all inclusive' probably means paying for more than you will be getting. Drink prices for those of us with non- inclusive rates were double those at other hotels.
