We spent just under 2 weeks at the Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort and it was totally blissful.
Having done some extensive research before hand and knowing Dahab fairly well, I wanted a hotel located fairly central to the main town whilst still offering an element of tranquility and can honestly say that the Sheikh Ali delivered on all fronts.
A short walk led you to the start of the main strip with restaurants everywhere and loads of shops if you need all the usual tat.
The hotel was exceptionally clean throughout both communal areas and the room was kept spotless at all times.
Now the suites were perfect, lots of space, with a bedroom area, dressing area and lounge with a TV (it only had 3 channels but we never watched it).
The beds were super comfy as were the pillows and the AC looked brand new, (not noisy at all, meaning you could have it on all night!)
The bathrooms are modern and again very clean with a walk in shower (personally I would have preferred a non fixed shower head as trying to shower a 6yr old was a challenge at times).
Water from the taps was far less salty than the other hotels I have stayed at in Dahab - big plus point when brushing ones teeth.
Food in the restaurant was spectacular, breakfast was served from a menu (no buffets) with a good selection of the usual eggs toast and even an egyptian breakfast (highly recommended).
We had dinner in the hotel a fair few times and again it was amazing, the burgers were decent enough but the real winner was the italian food, seriously the best pasta I have ever had in egypt... the chef was a genius and often came out for feedback which was a nice touch.
Try the curries as we left them with a few recipes and if they follow them, then trust me you will not be disappointed!
This hotel is truly spectacular with its nice size pool and large suites, you really couldn't ask for more.
We loved our stay here, the staff were super polite and attentive the management always took time out to have a chat and we had our very own kittens who we miss incredibly...
We have found our little oasis in Dahab and will return every time we visit Dahab to Sheikh Ali.
