"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.
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!

The Dahab Plaza Hotel is located in the heart of Dahab, within 2 minutes of the sea and within 90 km of the Sharm El Sheikh …More
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!
