I've been part of a South African group of 21 people who stayed at this Hotel for 3 days after a great liveaboard and stay in Sharm-El Sheik. The overall impression of this hotel is great with proper rooms and general service. We opted for a "all inclusive" package which means all local alcohol and beer was included. What a disaster! They have a bar in the lobby that takes ages (the last night 7 of us waited for close to an hour for our Mojitos ordered from the Bedioun tent until one of the group went to fetch it) to serve you drinks. On top of it all, the barman makes you feel as if he is doing you a favour to serve drinks. We stayed in a similar hotel in Sharm (Ibedel Lido) with a total different attitude and approach. Never waited for drinks- all cocktails with local rum were free and inclusive. The overall impression and lasting thought I have of this Hotel was that they got us there and "tricked" us with the free drinks option. They have a Bedioun tent set-up which is where everyone sits at night after dinner enjoying Hubbly. To get a drink from there is almost impossible and should you then order from the lobby bar they give you small glasses like kids and tell you that's the rules. If one goes to Sharm and see all similar type Bedioun tent set-ups anyone will realise you have to, contrary to the Egypt culture, serve drinks to the customers cause that is how THEY enjoy it. I won't go back to this hotel!

I've been lucky enough to stay at the mercure 4 times and really I can honestly say I love this hotel. The staff and management are always very friendly and accommodating, the rooms spacious and clean with gorgeous views of the sea, the pool is huge, the lunch and dinner buffets (especially the outdoor BBQ nights!) are always tasty, and the outdoor shisha area is my fav place to lounge about smoking under the stars. I've stayed at another hotel on one occasion (which wasnt my choice) and I was actually taken aback at the enormity of difference in quality for a fairly small difference in price. I really hope to return again for another visit soon, and I hope to see the tourists return to Dahab, it's just such a beautiful place to come!!!!!

Have been to Dahab before but this has to be the very best for: (1) value for money; (2) incredibly friendly and helpful staff; and (3) snorkeling - in fact the snorkeling is the best that I have found in my many holidays to many areas of Egypt! some of the reviewers moan about the amount of stairs but quite frankly if you want a buggy lift they are there to pick you up in a couple of minutes and, lets face it, if it weren't on a hill you wouldn't get the magnificent views - again the best i have experienced in Egypt. The chefs were exceptionally helpful and would get us fresh lemons and mint for our water bottles everyday and their fish soup was delicious. So many exceptional qualities to this hotel that I can't mention them all. My daughter works in Cairo and it was her birthday whilst i was there and i had many offers from the staff going on leave to take my presents to Cairo for her! I will definately be going back next year. The only negative thing i would say is that people with young very young children should go to the Bay area of Dahab where there is sand. Finally, I hope and pray that all goes well in the coming months in Egypt and that holiday makers start returning or there will be many hotels closing (they are working so hard to keep them going) I send my best wishes to all the staff and would like them to know I am thinking of them in this very turbulent time in Egypt.thoughts and best wishes الحب و السلام على جميع المصريين

Room Tip: What can I say, all the rooms have stunning views and face the sea

We did not stay at this Hotel, we visited it as part of an MSC Cruise excursion on our way to St. Catherine's Monastry in the South Sinai Desert. It appeared to be part of a complex built around 2006/7 with stunning views over the sea, but completely overshadowed by recent events in Egypt and the subsequent demise of the Tourist Industry in that region.
It was a 'ghost town experience' sadly. We hope Egypt recovers as you certainly would not be disappointed with this location and the hospitality of the staff.
We enjoyed a magnificent buffet lunch here. the food was of excellent quality and variety and the service couldn't be faulted.
Rest rooms and toilet facilities were excellent and clean.
The dining area was superb with plenty of space and fabulous views.
Dahab itself was a quiet town and in quite an isolated area.
