“Heavenly Birthday Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

Apologies it has taken me so long to write my review. But a huge thank you to Nimisha & all the staff at Dahab Paradise, who made my birthday trip unforgettable.
The hotel is certainly a slice of paradise, a short walk from the centre of Dahab, fantastic food and helpful, welcoming staff. My fiance and I stayed in October and found the area peaceful and easy to arrange many activities such as climbing Mt Sinai for the morning of my birthday, to camel rides on the beach, snorkelling at the Blue Hole, and great seafood (and pizza!).
Thank you again, we would certainly recommend Dahab Paradise and look forward to returning.

Beautiful little boutique hotel a bit outside of Dahab. Perfect place to find some time to relax. The views from the balcony are priceless, so close to the water.
Price - value relation couldnt be better. Of course it isnt a 5 star hotel, but it has everything you might need. And all is done with taste and a lot of love for detail.
Great breakfast, good restaurant, super friendly helpful staff.
Location is also perfect, a taxi ride into town is about 10 minutes and costs less than 2 euros.

Just dont expect a real beach or direct access to the water. There is a small road between the hotel and the sea, but not much traffic at all.

We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: 2 kind of rooms, downstairs with a terrace, upstairs with balconies - all viewing to the sea. The ro...

Having been lucky enough to stay in many of the so called "World's best hotels" I can see why the Dahab Paradise is so highly rated; not because it is like them, but because it is the antidote to them. OK, the bedrooms could do with a lick of paint here and there, and the shower is a bit unpredictable, but if those things are your main priorities you probably aren't ever going to appreciate this type of hotel. It is like staying as the personal guest of an obliging family. The service is sublimely efficient, but never "in your face". The staff are possibly the most friendly I've ever encountered at a hotel, the food excellent and authentic, and the setting idyllic. There's nothing quite like waking up to the sound of the waves lapping just 30 metres from your window. The only negative I can think of is the lack of a beach, but there are several sandy delights a short (and inexpensive) taxi ride away and the pool side sun beds are wonderful anyway. Thank you, Dahab Paradise, what a great hotel, we can't wait to return!

Comfortable beds, good breakfast, caring staff and views to die for - we couldn't have chosen a better hotel.
In addition to all this the best dive center in Dahab has a branch here (Big Blue) .
Local reef absolutely amazing to snorkel although it can get quite breezy this side of lighthouse area so not always practical for snorkeling this side.
Main " drag " of Dahab can be walked to in 30-40 mins ( along the shore line) to reach a wealth of restaurants. Or hotel will call you a taxi at any time ( Fare of aprox £1.50)
Go to further end of restaurant strip to "Meyer Meyer " you will not be disappointed !

Room Tip: Double rooms a little small- splash a little extra cash and have a triple room for extra space

A truly lovely experience sitting in the Bedouin tent listening to the sea and call to prayer in the distance watching the mountains turn pink as the sun goes down. A very cheap 5 mins taxi ride into Dahab if you want and then back to perfect peace and quiet to be looked after by exceptionally wonderful staff.

Loved the towel art.
Food was great - try the aubergine sandwich !
Great management and staff
A huge thank

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week last November and really enjoyed out stay. We had been looking for somewhere quiet and didn't want a package deal, and Dahab Paradise was perfect for us and the price was very reasonable.

It is a very pretty and well maintained hotel. The room is minimal but had everything we needed. We only had one problem which was a tear in the mosquito net and when we asked this was very promptly replaced. In common with other reviewers there was sometimes a bad smell from the drains in the bathroom but it seemed to come and go and wasn't terrible.

We had breakfast included and enjoyed this every morning in the al fresco dining area. The food was basic but nice, especially the fresh fruit salad and the pancakes.

The gardens are lovely and so green compared to the rest of the landscape. The pool was clean but cold. The temperature was in the high 20's but with the breeze felt very pleasant and not quite hot enough to need to cool off in the pool. There was a duck using the pool most of the time which made it feel more like a pond than a swimming pool, but it was quite funny.

The hotel was very quiet and most of the time it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We didn't spend much time in the hotel during the day, and also ate out in the town most nights. We did stay in for the Egyptian night and tried some of the local food. The portions were massive and it was really tasty. Afterwards we had Bedouin tea and shisha for a really small price, from a local Bedouin guy in the tent area, which was really fun and would recommend doing.

Overall a really pleasant stay but the thing that made it stand out was the friendly staff and service. Wael was extremely helpful and really went above and beyond to suggest activities and arrange things for us. He also seemed genuinely pleased to see us and have a chat each day.

It was a great last minute holiday for some winter sun and there was lots to do. We would recommend GP kite school, Dahab horse riding club and diving with diverge at the lighthouse and Eel garden dive sites.

Dear AWaugh1985,

Many thanks for your informative review on Tripadvisor. We are very happy to hear that you and your boyfriend enjoyed your stay at Dahab Paradise.

Thank you for your kind comments about Wael and the rest of the team, we are delighted to hear our efforts were appreciated.

We are sorry that you occasionally experienced problems with the drain, unfortunately this is partly due to the sewage infrastructure in the whole of Dahab. Our maintenance and housekeeping teams do try and keep on top of this at the hotel so that it does not impact negatively on your stay.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope that you will be able to return to Dahab Paradise in the future and experience another brilliant holiday.

Kindest regards,

The Dahab Paradise Team

The photos on the website make it look a bit too good to be true, a bit of photoshopping perhaps but no, it is actually that beautiful. It is just outside town so you feel away from the hussle but it is very easy to get in if you are diving etc. Nice staff, nice rooms, great pool, very relaxing.
