Dear andykmj,

Thank you for your stay with us and your wonderful words here on Tripadvisor. We feel honoured by your wording of Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort being the 'best hotel ever’!

We believe Dahab is an excellent choice for visitors of all ages. Teenagers usually enjoy the chilled atmosphere and adventurous activities equally much. It is great to know that your teenagers enjoyed Dahab for all the good reasons!

Many thanks for your special mention to Rasha, Gabaly and Tito, Together with the rest of the team we look forward to welcoming you back next year!

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

Sheikh Ali deserves its top spot in Dahab. Clean, green, spacy, cool, friendly...I could continue the list. We arrived to meet friends there who spend a whole month there and we enjoyed every of the 18 days we were there. The pool is great for the kids. The place is safe and welcoming for young families. Its just a stroll away from the beach (the Dahab beach outside the lagoon is not very attractive, so a beach front place is not a must) and Dahab center (restaurants, bars, shops and diving places). Sheikh Ali is an oasis. The best place in town.

The staff is friendly and very service minded. The manager is a lovely lady who understands hospitality to perfection. That some of the reception staff did not speak English too well, is just a very minor point.

We had a family room with two seperate rooms for us and the kids. The whole place was more like an appartment. Spacious rooms, big living area and good shower. All air conditioned (and you need that in summer!). The place was made spotless every day!

Breakfast was good and plentyfull (they might just want to think about a buffet just to make life a bit more manageble for the staff). We often had lunch or dinner there as well (nice and convenient for us and the kids). They went out of their way to provide for special requests or dishes.

The hotel arranged taxi's for us and did not overcharge. This was great because of the almost traditional conflicts you end up having with Egyptian cabbies.

The only less than positive point might have been the lack of wifi in our rooms, but that is really the only one. It just made you go outside and sit at the pool if you needed internet.

From a more practical point, the total bill for 17 nights, food (we went out to eat in town 3 out of 5 nights), drinks was certainly not high and pretty fair. Great value for money I would say.

When we left we all felt a bit sad. We had a great time and met a lot of great people!

I will certainly come back to Sheikh Ali.

Dear RobMat2009,

Thank you for your stay with us and for sharing such detailed and positive feedback from your stay. We were sad when you left too and hope to seeing you here again very soon!

Feedback from our guests – good and not so good – is central when we make decisions, changes and improvements here at Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort. We do our very best to rectify any problems immediately and if not possible to improve it for the future. With regards to the wifi, I regret to inform you that we have already made some considerable changes to improve the wifi coverage but without being able to solve the problem of spotted service at times. As internet service in the Sinai is limited to 3G we are unfortunately not able to guarantee 100% reliable internet connection at all times, but we hope this will change in the future. We will for sure keep up to date and do our share when a better service is available. Meanwhile, it is good to know you had no problems connecting to the internet when staying in the public areas.

We would like to thank you for sharing your high opinion of everything from location, service, room standard, cleanliness and food in the restaurant. Our hotel manager Rasha thank you specifically for mentioning her attitude, we dear say that hospitality is part of her nature!

A big thank you and best wishes from Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort,
Rasha, Gabaly, Guro & the Sheikh Ali team

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Sheikh Ali (two couples and two teenage children). This is a real gem of an hotel! As the hotel has only 22 rooms the service is relaxed and personal. Rooms are large and well thought out. The whole complex (built around a good sized pool) is spotless, and the food thoughtfully prepared and tasty (Tito, who heads the restaurant staff, deserves a special mention). With a town centre location the hotel is conveniently situated for the sea front and local shops, restaurants, dive centres and other amenities. However, through clever design noise from the surrounding area is not a problem. Indeed, stepping through the door of the Sheikh Ali from the dusty streets of Dahab is like stepping into a tranquil oasis.
I would thoroughly recommend the Sheikh Ali and have every intention to return.

A family of five, we spent two weeks in July and August at the Sheikh Ali. We were most impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, the pool and the hotel as a whole, the attentive service that could not have been better, and the quality and variety of the catering (with two qualified chefs), all at a family-friendly price. The suites offer palatial accommodation for two, and are easily large enough for three persons. Indeed, we saw little reason to venture out for meals at all. The hotel lies in a quiet location in Mashraba, a couple of minutes from the start of the bazaar and the beachfront promenade path that stretches for several miles in both directions with restaurants, cafes and tourist agencies as well as shops. Supermarkets and pharmacies also close by. Dahab itself has a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, even the market store holders and restaurant promoters usually accept a polite 'no' first time. Heavy emphasis on diving and snorkelling, windsurfing and kite surfing are other watersports available. If you are not especially enthusiastic about desert trips however, whether on camel, quad-bikes or 4x4, then you might find the range of alternative pastimes a bit limited. But most people go to Dahab to relax. And for that, it is the ideal location. Much look forward to returning.

Room Tip: First floor suites offer greater privacy but ground floor if you want pool-side accommodation

Dear Nigel D,

Thank you for choosing to spend your holiday in Dahab and Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort. We are very happy your family and yourself enjoyed Dahab in general and Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort in particular.

Dahab is a perfect spot to escape day to day life for a little, weather that being underwater, in the desert of under an umbrella on the beach. We see that most families coming to Dahab have consciously chosen a experience based and genuine holiday for their children. We celebrate the attitude and do our best to let young family members have a great time during their stay here.

Many thanks for sharing the experience of your family Dahab holiday here on Tripadvisor, we are very much looking forward to you return.

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

We spent a week at the hotel in July 2013 and were extremely satisfied with all services.
The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was lovely and large, always very clean and provided all amenities one could wish for. The pool area was very relaxing with comfortable sunbeds and provided the perfect calm environment for ending an exciting day at the beach. The restaurant was really a surprise and after the first evening eating out we did not stray again: PLEASE follow the chefs and waiters recommendations and you will get the finest, freshest dishes you could hope for. We had excellent Egyptian food as well as extraordinary international cousine. Respect to the chef!
We hope to be able to return to this lovely place again in the near future.

Dear ThomasLangmann,

Thank you for your stay with us at Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort and for your great recommendation here on Tripadvisor.

Over the past months we have made considerable changes to the restaurant menu. We are therefore pleased you enjoyed the meals on offer and the personal recommendations from our chef.

Furthermore, we believe that the central location, high standards and overall facilities at Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort is our strength. We want the hotel to be a comfortable base for those who want to explore the Sinai and the Red Sea, as well as a little oasis’ for guests who just want to relax by the pool.

Many thanks for sharing your experience and pinpointing our vision in your own words!

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