“Chilling in Dahab”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

This place was recommended to us by some friends who like diving and love going to Dahab to get away from it all at the weekends. We live in Cairo and this place is such a contrast however this boutique hotel is a real gem. We have been several times and intend to go again and would recommend it as a great place to simply chill. The hotel is small but really friendly the owner Joe has a great attitude in running this place.The staff are friendly and very helpful and the place is clean and tidy and well kept.
I know people have different tastes and it all depends what you are after. This place is simple straight forward and does great breakfast's and is excellent value for money.

I just loved this place, where you could walk right out of your room, across a few feet of colorful tile courtyard, through a covered cabana and right to the beach. Since nobody gets up very early in this sleepy little village, I had the beach to myself to watch the sunrise over the Saudi Arabian mountains. Joe and his team were available to serve at any time, but you could just sit and read too with no one to trouble you. Since the hotel is at the end of a long stretch of beach restaurants, it's very quiet too, and quite a welcome relief to the noise of Cairo and the cities. The food was great, and one night we had goat for dinner, roasted Bedouin-style over coals buried in the sand. The price was very accessible and made it possible for me to stay in this location much longer than I'd anticipated. Thank you Joe and team for a terrific visit.

Room Tip: Rooms a little away from the beach are quieter because sometimes rambunctious dogs scramble on the b...

After much research, we settled on Ghazala, and we're so happy we did. They picked us up from Sharm airport, which helped us avoid the taxi mafia.
Joe and Garnim told us to treat the place like our home, and that we did.
Ghazala is situated almost at the very southern end of the boardwalk, so you're away from the restaurant touts. The rooms are clean, very comfortable, and excellent value. We could hear the crashing waves from you room..... They have their own small private beach to chill on as well and an enclosed, but airy restaurant for if it's windy. The food's delicious and they serve Saqara Beer and shishas too.
Bike rental, laundry, all the services you might need, all with a smile and some friendly banter.
Massive thanks to the team at Ghazala, you made the last few days of our trip just perfect. Chris and Sandy

Room Tip: They're all great, but the closer you are to the sea, the more likely you are to have it lull yo...

We went to Dahab on a family holiday over Easter 2012 and stayed 9 days at the Ghazala Hotel. It is an absolute jewel! Nice, clean rooms, a fine enclosed yard, a cosy lounge/restaurant and a private beach area. This alone gave us value for money, but the best was Joe and his crew: they went out their way to help and created a very relaxed atmosphere, making it possible to unwind completely. We miss them already. We will definately recommend the Ghazala Hotel to friends and family.

For that price and service I would always go there. Very nice, simple, clean, and a 2 second walk from the beach.
I wouldn't think for other options when I go to Dahab again.
My advise, YOU HAVE TO EAT STEAK. They have the best ever.

I traveled to Dahab many times and stayed in different places, but since I discovered Ghazala, I want to stay nowhere else. This hotel is a jewel. Simple but clean and very tasteful with rooms surrounding a wonderful yard with flowers facing the sea. A very comfortable Beduin style cafe on the private beach, that's just a couple of meters away from your room. Very tasty food and quiet, relaxed atmosphere. But the best part is the crew. The Ghazala team will do anything to make your stay unforgettable. You will feel very welcomed. One of my favorite places worldwide.
