“It's Number 1 in our book!”
Reviewed 16 January 2009

This hotel and their sister hotel, the Nefertiti in Luxor, were our top 2 hotels during our holiday through Egypt. The rooms are large and clean and the location is great, being just a short walk away from all the conveniences you need without the noise. But the overiding factor was the staff. Sinbad and his staff were amazing. They were so laid back and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We spent a few nights by the fire on the cushions smoking sheesha and drinking tea with them. It really was a fantastic experience that you just couldn't get at some 4 star expensive hotel. They helped arrange tours for us (take the trip to Ras Mohammed - WOW) but were never every pushy in any way.
They would have to be some of the most amazing staff we've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. We couldn't recommend the Pearl of South Sinai more! Just stay there and see for yourself.

I had booked two days before I came to see what this place was like, and I stayed for 11 days. The location is one street back from the really busy beachfront, so it is much quieter for sleeping. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was really friendly. I acctually had other people I met change hotels to stay in this one. The bathrooms and airconditioning for every room is a definite plus. I would return here for sure.

First off the place was absolutely spotless, the people that run it are so friendly. Mustafa in particular helped me arrange tours and airport pick-up, unfortunately a lot of people try to rip you off in Dahab, if they know you're from out of town, but these guys are very honest............ As for location it depends on what you're after, if you want to be close to the sea and the beach, maybe 15mins walk is a bit much but I was more than happy to be on the quieter side of town and you're free to walk to the beach or discos if you want a bit of action. My only tiny problem was that they didn't change the sheets during my stay, but then again, I was only there for a few days and I'm sure they would have done it if I'd asked and there was only one bin in the whole room which was in the bathroom which had a small ant problem. But these were really small things and the pros more than outweigh the cons. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Dahab

Stayed here for a few days at the end of May and loved it. The hotel isn't directly on the beach but it is nice to be able to walk out the entrance and not be harassed by vendors and restaurateurs. The hotel and Dahab are great places to end a tour of Egypt or just get a break from the busier parts of the country.
The guys that run the place are excellent hosts and make you feel at home. I hope to visit again.

  • Liked — Quiet location but close to the ocean

If you are a looking for a peaceful stay in a friendly hotel, then look no further than here. The rooms are nice and spacious, all with ac (esssential in Dahab). The location is nice and central, just five minutes walk from the centre and quiet enough to get some restful sleep.

Right from the moment you arrive at the hotel, the staff are exceptional in their attention to customer service. Always friendly and welcoming and attentive to guests needs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone hoping for a nice relaxing stay in Dahab. I will be returning very soon !!

Ps a nice breakfast is included, free internet access and some very cute cats make the stay extra special......
