Good staff, not always expecting tips. Its just the activity guys that hound you to buy excursions from them which becomes annoying. Also don't trust the camel guys which tend to wait outside the resort for you.

Stayed for a week at the Savoy Sharm in a Garden View Suite. The Hotel was first class. The room was excellent, the hotel facilities and in particular the staff were of the highest standard.
Our only criticism was that some of the food and drink in the hotel's many restaurant was a little expensive and was less consistently excellent than other elements of the hotel. Exceptions to this were the burgers, which were very good and the food at the Seafood restaurant by the beach, which was suburb.
I could not recommend this place high enough for those wanting a high quality, relaxing beach hotel.

My wife and I booked for a long weekend getaway and felt like we wanted to stay for another month.
Stella is situated just outside of the down town party scene. It has a shuttle service that will take you down, but the Stella Di Mare has its own night life. They have a full entertainment staff that is energetic and adaptive, offering many day time activities and a different show each night of the week. Management even held a meet and greet night for selected guests to offer extra services and their appreciation.
The food and drink selection is outstanding. Buffets at every meal and full menu and bar service by the pool. They even offer an all inclusive option. Unfortunately this was not promoted well on Expedia and we booked not knowing of this option. This is something that you want to look for when booking this hotel.
A weekend was not enough to fully appreciate everything Stella Di Mare has to offer. Next time I think i'll stay a couple of weeks.
"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.
Staff were fantastic, so helpful and friendly. They work exceptionally hard and long hours.
Cleanliness excellent although the general state of repair of some of the public toilets and buildings left a little to be desired.
Food was overall really good, but with my husband being semi-vegetarian, and with me being intolerant to cow's milk, eggs and almonds, it was difficult to eat sometimes, as even vegetables would either be stuffed with mince or cheese or fried in batter. It would be helpful if they had an ingredients list or at least a "contains ..." list on the signs. Also signs were very bad English so sometimes you had to have a good look or even a prod around to see exactly what it was! I put these concerns into writing to the restaurant manager, so hopefully they will be addressed.
I once saw them use the tongs from raw chicken in the steak - I mentioned this to the restaurant manager so hoping that this is addressed also.
One other point was that there are no lifts (elevators) so for disabled access or those with buggies or prams it's very bad as you have to climb stairs to get anywhere.
Overall a great hotel. We probably won't go back as we like to go out and explore and in this area it was difficult to do anything except use the pools within the hotel or the hotel beach unless you spent money on a trip.

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!

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!
