New, large and clean rooms, excellent bathroom, very good service, friendly and helpful stuff. Good place for relax after activities. I've stayed in this hotel twice for a week in 2011 and in march 2012 and will do it again!

My friends and I stayed at Sheikh Ali over a weekend and had a fantastic time. The service was amazing, we organised to snorkel to the blue hole and the three pools all through the reception and hotel manager.

The rooms were exactly as described by others - very clean, spacious, the beds we were comfortable. My only comment is that the water pressure was inconsistent. Other than that, air condition was brilliant - the pool was clean and lovely.

Location wise - it is only a 1min walk to the main prominard where all the markets and restaurants are so perfect location.

We are definitely going to be going back again and organising more trips with the owners as they were simply amazing with all the trips! We paid a transfer of 40EU to the airport one way, v. affordable considering the private taxis at the airport are 550LE and the "public" taxis will charge you 450LE.

Ahh, I really don’t know from where to start.. OK will take it one by one..

Booking:
We were singles and I contacted the hotel through e-mail to test the hospitality level they have! To be honest with you, I was overwhelmed with the kind response from the hotel manager Ms. Guro !! She immediately provided us with a confirmed booking for the best three rooms they have with king size bed and a view to the swimming pool with a very reasonable price!!

I asked her if it is possible to help us in planning our one day trip to Dhahab and she did an amazing work for us. She booked for us a taxi from Sharm, a car with a driver to three pools snorkeling area, massage, amazing seaside table at Alibaba seafood restaurant, a car with a driver to Blue Hole and finally a taxi back to Sharm. All these services of transportations, three rooms, massage for three of us, breakfast,..etc with an amount that didn’t exceed 500 US$ ONLY lump sum for three of us!! WHERE YOU CAN FIND SUCH SERVICES WITH THIS PRICE???

Hotel Staff: Will make it easy for you: You will feel that you are visiting your family and believe me it will be very hard and emotional when it is time to say goodbye

HOTEL: Clean, Clean, Clean and has a very cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Thank for the smart design of a U shape with a swimming pool and green landscape in the middle. Very Short walk to the beach and has his own beach. We really enjoyed relaxing on our wide balconies and waving to each other while a slow relaxing music is coming from the swimming pool.

What else!! Ya Guess what??? More than 500 Channel TV and FAST FREE INTERNET WIRELESS ALLOVER THE HOTEL!!!

Rooms: Very very clean suit king size rooms on the second floor facing the swimming pool. Spacious balcony with chairs and table. Clean bathroom with a blue Mosaic shower area. Wide Setting area with a fridge and FREE MINERAL WATER. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Fantastic AC with a remote control !

Massage: May be if I will describe that massage, you will think I am exaggerating but you know what... Just go and try it .. Judge it yourself..

Food: fresh, healthy and delicious

Owner: We really don’t know how to express our deep appreciation for Mr. Jabaly Bin Shaikh Ali!! He was there all the time making sure everything is going smooth with us. If you every heard about the Generosity of Arabs, this gentleman is really purely simply presenting it. We asked him to recommend a Bedouin restaurant for us, he said “go guys to your trip and when you come back for lunch I will find a restaurant for you”! What happen next? We came back and find amazing Bedouin lunch ready for us as a goodbye meal from him then he took us on a ride through Dhahab and end up by inviting us to Shish place where he taught us how to play TAWLAH, Egyptian old traditional table game! It was a spectacular unforgettable moments we spent with him.

Finally, we all can’t wait to come back to Shaikh Ali Hotel and meet all the friends there again..

Room Tip: Just contact Guro and you will be very fine

This was my second stay at Sheikh Ali with my wife during early May having previously stayed with my son and his girlfriend last November, having stayed at other hotels during previous visits to Dahab I can honestly say this hotel is far superiour

The entrance and reception are clean and fresh leading to a large and very clean pool with comfy sun beds and shelters.Rooms are on two levels on both visits we opted for ground level which have large sliding doors which open onto a spacious paio area leading onto luscious well manicured lawns. The rooms themselves are huge with a very light and airey feel to them and are well equiped with wardrobes, storage shelves,a fridge, tv and satelite box and chairs and a table. During November it was a little cooler and we were able to move our patio table and chairs inside when my son came round
The beds are absolutley huge and extremely comfortable with firm pillows and the bathroom again is of high quality
It's position is in the middle of Dahab and accessed via the camp/hotel to the rear of Shiekh Ali and leads onto the main shopping area where the shops and numerous eateries are found which in turn are adjacent to the sea front
Staff are always friendly and helpful which only adds to the overall experience of staying here. Forget the big hotels which are positioned out of town or Sharm and come and experience Dahab in comfort hope to see you soon inshallah !!

We (2 adults + 2 kids) stayed at Sheikh Ali for a full week and it was absolutely fabulous. The rooms are large and spotless. It easily accommodated all of us with one child sleeping on the sofa bed and the other one comfortably sharing the very big bed with us. The pool was also very clean and it is rather big for the number of guests.

The hotel is located in a quiet area but at the same time close to everything you might fancy. Plenty of shops and nice restaurants by the sea are only minutes away, but one should also not miss dinner prepared by the chefs at the hotel. In fact, hotel staff is very helpful and tries to accommodate any wish you might have. For instance, the big tart they prepared on the occasion of my daughter’s birthday will be unforgettable. In the end, we felt a bit like home, being treated more like friends than guests. We also used the transfers arranged by the hotel, which are reasonably priced given the high quality of the service provided.

There is no other place I would stay in Dahab and, quite honestly, I regret a bit those staying in the big resort hotels out of town, as they miss a gem on the Sinai.

While working in Egypt I have been to Dahab more than ten times in the last 4 years (short trips) and have been in several different hotels so far. Sheikh Ali is definetely the best. The hotel is quite new (2011?), rooms are large and furnished decently and properly. Big bathroom with shower, balcony, large beds, fridge, satellite TV, very clean, good service. It is a few minutes away from the beach so it is quiet and close to the heart of Dahab. All this makes it a very good place to stay. What makes the difference from very good to excellent are the people who run it. I felt like being at home. For sure I'll come back (insh'allah) to Dahab and Sheikh Ali. Thanks to everyone in the team!
