“Nice quiet spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in a junior suite. The room was large and well set out with lots of storage areas. The hotel is situated around a pool and is a quiet and relaxing arrangement. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the water and the restaurant strip.
The staff are pleasant and responsive and there is an informal atmosphere about the place. We left very early to the Sharm El Sheikh airport and the hotel provided breakfast boxes - a nice touch.
Breakfasts were fine. Try the falafel pancakes for breakfast.
A couple of minor points to note. The hotel organised a "tour" to St Catherine's monastery which went very wrong. First the monastery church wasn't open (a real bummer) and the driver was foul-mouthed, erratic and smoked in the minibus. If you book through the hotel ask the questions we should have. Second; the bed was great but the coverings were much too hot for us. A European touch perhaps.
Overall an excellent place to relax in.

Dear In60s,

Thank you for your stay with us and for sharing your experience with other travelers. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort.

With regards to your trip to St Catherine, we can only express our sincere apologises and regrets. Usually the monastery is open on Saturdays but due to Coptic Easter, the chruch was closed on the day of your visit. As the drivers attitude and lack of professionalism are far below our standards, we have chosen to use another trip organizer and driver for future trips. We would like to thank you specifically for making us aware of this situation.

We see that our guests have different preferences with regards to temperature in the rooms and coverings. We have therefore chosen to have individually adjustable air condition units in the rooms and a choice of warm coverings and simple sheets. We are very sorry to learn that you did not find your perfect combination of room temperature and covering and only wish you had mentioned this at the time of your stay so that we could find a satisfactory alternative.

We hope to seeing you again here at Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort for an improved experience with us.

Best wishes from Sheikh Ali Dahab resort,
Rasha, Gabaly, Guro & the Sheikh Ali team

This delightful hotel is just one hour transfer from Sharm airport. Ideally located , it is just set back from the main street and sea front restaurants. We stayed for one week at the Sheikh Ali and were very impressed by the professional and friendly staff in the hotel and restaurant. The suites are spacious and kept spotlessly clean by the housekeeping staff and the gardens are maintained to a beautiful standard presenting an attractive look to the resort.

The restaurant is a real asset to the hotel serving a fantastic variety of meals and snacks all day by professional chefs and the service from the restaurant manager compliments the food. The quality of food, excellent service and value for money meant we chose to eat here more often rather than the beach restaurants.

The quiet surroundings make this resort an ideal place to relax and rest but for those wishing to have a more active holiday there's plenty to keep you busy around Dahab and the hotel staff are happy to point you in the right direction.

We will be back this year for sure, loved it!

I booked a week here on the strength of other TripAdvisor reviews. I wasn't disappointed. The location is great - quiet but close to the sea front restaurants and shops. The rooms are huge, clean, and they all surround a nice pool. Above all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommended, especially if you're looking for somewhere laid back and relaxing.

We had a great week at Sheikh Ali Resort. It's a quiet, laid back place full of friendly people and some very nice facilities. Everything seems new and we were surprised and impressed by the value we got for our money: It has a great location just off the main road only two minutes from the action (that's relative in Dahab though :-). The rooms are very big, clean and new and the pool area is kept very nice and clean too. The staff is also a big part of it: They are all highly professional but at the same time very personal warm and friendly. They are very flexible and certainly one more reason why we wanna come back and do it all over again some time!

we recently went to Dahab at Sheikh Ali Resort. We had a great time. The location for a group of divers is perfect. Near the main street, shops and restaurant and pretty near to the reef.
Beautiful rooms and an extraordinary staff!
Hope to plan soon another holiday at Sheikh Ali!

There is an old saying which states, "YOU NEVER GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION".

This is ever so true of the Sheikh Ali Resort.

The Sheikh Ali Hotel showed us that honest hearts produce honest actions. The service was flawless. The rooms were super clean. The atmosphere was quiet. The staff always had a smile. All amenities were close by. For the perfect trip to Egypt, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Every room is great. The place itself is very serene and relaxing.
