Would not recommend due to:
1) The rooms were not cleaned unless asked for; when you cannot flush paper etc in the toilet in Dahab, this means having to ask for your stained toilet tissue etc. to be removed. The bins provided were just open paper baskets. Our requests to have this done seemed to be met with disapproval at times. The actual "clean" appeared to consist of empyting the bin only. The toilet was never once bleached. There were skidmarks when we arrived.
2) No towels, the ones that were provided were utterly disgusting
3) The manageress tried to seriously rip us off on trips. She wanted $140 for a bus trip to Cairo. These cost $50 in Sharm. It is the Sharm bus you join. So she tried to charge us $70 each for a taxi to Sharm. The going rate for a private taxi is 20Euros. We ended up paying half what she quoted, by going through the agent she uses directly. This was really an insult to anyones intellegence. It only takes one comparison to realise what a fast buck she was trying to make.
4) The breakfast is average. Same price on the promenade gets better quality.
5) The rooms face a building site on one side, and and waste ground on the other. There are no sea view rooms in reality.
In summary there are multiple equally competative resorts in Dahab. I chose this place based on the feedback from Tripadvisor, but we were disappointed.
