“nice little Rocketa!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2008

We stayed at the new Rocketa Hotel which opened in June and is part of the Sphinx group in Dahab. It's just a short walk from the Sphinx Hotel and "Funny Mummy" the beach front restaurant known to all in Dahab!

We each had a really nice en-suite room one with a direct view to the sea. The door to the rooms opened onto the pool terrace. The staff there were very helpful and because the hotel is quite small it has a wonderful friendly atmosphere. The rooms were cleaned daily and there are good hygiene practices in place. The location is ideal because it is in the quiet section of the sea front on the promenade and yet an easy walk to the nearby shops and bank. A good little wine shop is just across the road for those who want to buy their wine to take to restaurants since many of them do not serve it. It's also easy to access the other sea front wooden canopied, carpet/cushion decked restaurants! While there I organised a buffet for our friends and the chef at the Rocketa put on a good spread. We were booked on a bed and breakfast basis and it worked well. Breakfast was served until 10am so no need to get up too early.

This is a really good place to chill out. Dahab is so much more laid back than Sharm and seems to attract beach lovers and divers of the 20 -50 year group. A lot less packaged than Sharm.
