We had a fantastic experience.
The hotel itself is very very nice, especially compared to other places I have seen in Dahab. It is very clean, has a swimming pool in the center, green lawn, a pond, and a bunch of palm trees, a nice open air restaurant (although the food is average at best), a small dive-center facility and even a bedouin tent!
Our room was just above the reception, it was spacy enough, quite clean and well furnished. The view from the balcony (or from the bedouin tent, or the restaurant) : ) is really nice.
There were very few guests and we liked it that way, the hotel was very serene and great for relaxation.
The service was more than great. Especially the staff attitude was 500%!! I have never seen even in 5 star hotels in Europe this level of friendly pro-customer attitude. We really felt welcome and in a friendly place, almost a family place.
Just tiny bits of criticism -- wi-fi was a big issue, it often did not work and even when available, it would not reach the rooms, so you had to take your computer to the reception to be able to use internet. The food was average at best, although not exactly cheap. The hotel is not for hard core divers as it does not have its own dive center, just a sort of a rental shop, where you can order your dives, but in order to dive you need to get a lift down to the dive center in Dahab proper, get your gear there and then get another lift to the dive site. You should also note that the hotel is not in Dahab proper, and it's a 45 min walk through a very run-down neighborhood, or a 10 min taxi drive, in order to get to the boardwalk and the city center.
Bottom line: With few guests, this is an absolutely fantastic, relaxing, beautiful and soothing place, worth every penny. May not be ideal for hardcore divers or those who need a good and steady access to internet or those in need of partying (but the latter goes for all Dahab, unfortunately).
