Just checked into the Sheikh Ali Resort for 4 nights after 7 in the Paradise. Both very good in different ways. Reviews to follow.
Hope you are having a wonderful time, have bn to the Paradise just for drinks, lovely place. Xx enjoy your nxt few days x
Here's a quick comparrason of the two hotels that are no1 and no2 on TA in Dahab.
Dahab Paradise (DP) stayed here for 7 nights, win hands down on Sheikh Ali (SA) for character and looks better by far, that's not to say the SA doesn't look good it's just that DP is better.
SA wins this one, really huge rooms and excellent quality, huge bed and great air con. The bathroom and shower is also far superior to DP. Though the DP does have a larger balcony and better view.
DP wins, although there's plenty comment that the menu is lacking in variety and local cuisine but I found it excellent and very well presented. Also the breakfasts are better at the DP than SA
Pool & sun beds
Draw here both the DP & SA have great pools and good beds, but again the view is better at DP
Value for money
Hard to judge because we only pay £25/night at DP and we're paying £50 at SA for undoubtedly a better room. So I'll give it a draw.
Again hard to judge as it all depends on your needs. If you want that view and a very quiet hotel and don't mind getting a taxi into town then DP is for you. However the SA is right bang in town and right next to all the resturants Dahab has to offer.
When we return, we'll probably do the same again and split the hotels as each has something different to offer.
Sounds as though I am sitting on the fence but they are both great hotels for very different reasons and we all have different needs.
Anyone please feel free to DM me on any more infor about the hotels.
