We went to the Dahab Paradise as I had stayed at the Bedouin Moon (which is of equally high standard) down the road a month earlier and fancied a change of scenary. We had originally booked to dive, however a combination of a head cold and arthritis put paid to that so it turned into a week of nothing but r&r - and I honestly don't think we could have chosen a better spot in Dahab.
Lovely room, clean, cool and fantastic balcony/view over the gulf of aqaba over to Saudi. Food from the menu was consistently of a high quality, prices were reasonable, £1.50 for a beer, £3-5 for a pizza. I'm pretty mystified about the comment below that drinks were expensive, yes a beer for example was maybe 50% more expensive than the bars in Dahab, but the hotel is pretty much a base for people therefore the costs involved in paying a chef and a barman for 15 hours a day have to be met somehow!
The only down sides are that beers are warm, and that any "buffet" arrangements are poor as the food is not kept heated so is usually cold unless you eat breakfast at the crack of dawn or as soon as the Egyptian night opens. I ate it and found it to be fine, but my friend was a little more particular and therefore we usually ended up eating out for breakfast.
Pool and gardens were immaculately well presented / kept. Wifi is a little slow but saves a small fortune on all those expensive calls and text messages home.
Overall I would definately return here in the future, and intend to do so before the end of the year.
