Just had 2 weeks at the Coralia Beachclub hotel having booked with Neilson holidays. I went with my wife, and 10 and 13 year old sons. We have had our best ever holiday thanks to the staff of Neilson and this hotel. I have also stayed at the Swiss Inn and its hard to decide which is the best for different reasons. The biggest shame is Neilson pulling out of Dahab as a venue for its windsurfing holidays when Dahab remains an awesome family windsurf venue catering for the expert and beginner alike.
You wont be dissapointed with this hotel if you want a good value holiday in a fabulous location. I would return tommorow

The holiday we just experienced was excellent. After a flawless collection from the airport where I am still not sure you need to pay the Egyptian £15 arrival tax, we got onto a very comfortable coach and drove uneventully to the Coralia Beachclub.

We were met by the centre manager, James, and given details for the following day. Everything ran like a well oiled machine and the food and accommodation were excellent. We had the option to go into Mazbah, the local town but only did so once because in all honsety, there isn't really a good reason to leave the resort unless you really feel like exploring. Mazbah is great and safe but we were happy with the food, the accommodation, the activities and the staff and our fellow holidaymakers.

The rooms were comfortable although the air conditioning was a bit loud but you soon got used to it. It certainly works - the outside temperature was 36C but we had a steady 19C in the rooms with only one shortlived power cut which was of no real consequence.

The location is superb being an hour from Sharm El Sheikh so there aren't hoardes of tourists and the wind and water etc. are perfectly suited to allow beginners and advanced windsurfers/kite surfers to coexist.

When we did go into Mazbah, there was an abundance of shops and restaurants and very friendly and, importantly, not too pushy proprietors. Value for money was superb in town and with our all inclusive package for half board, we only spent £150 for food and beers whilst in the beachclub itself for two people over 7 days. A 3 course meal will set you back about £20 in town (for two people! Bargain! Also, a litre of rum is only £2, yes, two pounds)

Neilson are closing in Dahab and this is a real shame. We felt well looked after and really enjoyed our time there.

Some people might be concerned over recent kidnappings but the area is very safe and it is only North of Dahab that the bedouin are known to be a bit more volatile. There were abundant security in the resort and when walking home late one night, we were properly challeneged a number of times. This gave a great feeling of reassurance.

In short, this is my second and best trip to Dahab to date and I will definitely be going back. Keep up the good work Neilson!

My 3rd time in Dahab - have now stayed in the main 3 hotels along the beach - Swiss Inn, Hilton and now Coralia. I would say the food in all 3 is extremely repetitive, but the Coralia do slightly better than the other two as they have a carvery every night and did a great BBQ on the Friday. The rooms are fine, good shower and nice but small patio onto lawns or beach. Probably the most amount of sunbeds with shade of any hotel I've ever stayed at which is essential for 40 degrees and the curse of towels on sunbeds. Wifi was only available in the hotel bar and not in the rooms so not great. The hotel itself is extremely quiet at night which is fine by me but would be very dull for those looking for a buzz. Mosquitos bit like crazy so be warned and take spray and tablets for the room.
Big shame Neilson are shutting down their Dahab centre but I'd definitely go back again.

Although the media continue to promote some of the more negative actions of a few within the country, we felt safe and continue to appreciate the genuine hospitality that, in our experience, is a big part of visiting Egypt.

As for the hotel, the recent modernisation activities are paying off, its definitely raised its game in terms of comfort and quality of service. The room refurbishment’s are now complete and the move toward preparing some of the main courses “on demand” has helped counter the issues previously noted with food not always being hot.

One aspect of particular note was the hosting of evening dinner around the pool complex with the staff dressed in traditional attire, a really special experience.

As for the British guest contingent, of the fifty or so present during this visit, about seventy five percent were also repeat visitors, an endorsement in its own right.

It was my first journey to this part of Egypt and I really liked it. I liked this natural place, its wonderfull beauty, the semplicity of the people, their joy and sincerity. I have been travelling all over for many years, but this place, not far from Italy, has really surprised me. I found a good place to relax for its special position and I found all the organization of the hotel very in tune with my needs. Thank you, we will come back.

Have been coming to the Coralia for 6 years and wouldn't consider oing anywhere else n Dahab - even though Neilson are closing their windsurf centre - will now travel independently. The hotel has been refurbed and all rooms have lovely beds to sleep in, great bathrooms, AC and are generally spacious. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty and the hotel has the best location on the beach.

We have just returned from a glorious week in Dahab staying at the Coralia Club. We went with Neilson and could not have asked for more.

The transfer from Sharm is 1. The check in was very easy and the staff were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The rooms are basic but clean and very comfortable. We had a basic garden view with terrace and it was very nice. They are cleaned every day.

The Neilson staff are superb - the tuition was fantastic and they were very patient (!). The sailing area is safe and the sand bar provides a welcome rest when you are a little tired.

The food is very good - lots of choice (albeit quite basic) with rice, meat, vegetables, lovely morning pastries and incredible flat breads cooked freshly by a lady at the restaurant every night.

The beach is beautiful - soft sand with clear water. However, there are a few rocks in the water (especially on one side of the sand bar) so take care. We did a great camel trip to a Bedouin tent with Black Rock Dive centre which we would recommend.

Tips
- The mosquitoes are rife so take lots of spray and a plug in for your room
- If you are windsurfing, you may want to take booties to avoid cuts on the feet (however, lots of people do not take them)
- Take a snorkel with you and go to Baby Bay (just behind the sandbar). You can hire fins/snorkels from Blackrock Dive centre for a couple of hours very cheaply
- The flight is with Monach and was very chilly - make sure you take a warm jumper!

Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel and holiday and are already planning our trip next year!

Room Tip: The rooms away from the Hilton are very quiet
