“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2010

we loved it but no hotel is perfect and some may be put off by

1) the lack of a communal area with air con. It is 30 degrees in the evening in august which makes the karoake/disco area etc with just a few fans very uncomfortable and little frequented
2) the restaurant ares has multiple access points and the staff didn't seem phased by the sparrows that would fly in and out to nibble the bread rolls/pitta bread- always go for one at the bottom of the bowl
3) nearly everyone we met had at least one member of their group come down with stomach bug. Take immodium with you and avoid salads and getting dehydrated. We were advised to drink at least 3 litres of water per day each and if you are doing activities you will need more. There is no shop on site that sells bottled water so they make a fortune off clients by insiting you pay bar prices each time - 13 LE per 1.5 litre bottle- compared to 2LE in town. This didn't seem to bother many of the Neilsen guests (most of the British guests were from Neilsen) as still only a small % of total holiday cost.

If you want to do more than stay on site the whole time but looking for cheap trips I'd recommend
1) taxi into town - £2 single and get a meal on the seafront
2) visit blue hole to go snorkelling - buy your snorkel in advance (£8 in Masrat) as the hire ones are poor quality. £10 per person with the blue rock dive centre based at the Coralia.
3) take a glass bottomed boat out - the one at Coralia is only £8 pp and you can snokel off a reef as well

excellent watersport tuition included, buffet restaurant was a bit limited but food ordered to beach or from other restaurants was very good. No need to take cash as you can charge everything back to the room and pay on departure. Uncrowded beach. crystal clear water.

If you're an experienced traveller - Dahab's Coralia, as well as the other hotels all along that stretch, is no romantic chilled getaway. It is sports and tour orientated, with concentrated development along the shoreline and near dead coral reefs in the sea. Tourists are packed tightly along the coast line, with little way of escaping the tourist buzz if your holed up in the big hotels. The beaches are narow and windy, though you'll frequently get a spare sun lounge due to everyone sailing/windsurfing. If you're there just to replicate life at home but in sunny climes, this place is great.

Dahab village is no more, but over developed (and still going as you'll see) staffed with young Egyptians from the mainland with no real knowledge of service. Their understanding of the local area is limited to the same old repetetive locations (white canyon, camel rides, st catherines, diving holes .etc) and thin at best. Their initial enthusiasm quickly evaporates when they pick you up for these tours - our tour guide from was a crook and we reported him to the tourist police. A walk through the centre is filled with persistent offerings to eat/drink or go camel riding, and not responding is often treated as a slight and you're sure to get a comment as you walk by. The restaurants all serve the same dishes, unless you try the one or two thai places, and are on the whole tasteless affairs unless your lucky.

The most regrettable part of the trip was the total destruction of the coral reefs along the coast line directly in front of Dahab's hotels. They are decimated, whatever the hotel or tour guide try to say, they are rubble on top and sparse of life down below. Tourists walk all over the reef in special coral shoes sold everywhere in the town but wholly condemned by one or two diving specialists I spoke to. If you're also looking for a starry night , forget it, Dahab's ever growing glow paints the sky a recognisable faint orange, just like over European towns. You'll have to step out into the desert for that but the camel tours will only take you to the edge of the town and the taxis will refuse, yes refuse, to take you.

If you have never been outside of green Europe, this place is a hoot. If you've travelled and have high expectations (and possible a bit miserable like me) then don't go there, find something else.

With 2 young children holidays can be less than relaxing ! But all this changed at the Coaralia Club in Dahab. Lovely hotel with superb staff where nothing is too much trouble. The rooms were beautifully clean and our room attendant Hamdy did a wonderful job. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Coralia Club is a hotel in a beautiful park with a spacious beach. We have been there at least 20 times, as the windsurfing station is unique and the sport conditions perfect.
The hotel receives their guests with typical arab hospitality, the staff is very friendly. Two persons merit special mention: Mohamed Fawzy from the Sunset bar and Rafaat from the restaurant. Both serve their guest in an excellent way, making our stay extremely pleasant.
A renovation of the rooms, in particular the noisy aircondition, would be an advantage. The meals are moderate, small improvements could do a lot here. Why not reintroduce a salat bar as in earlier times? A pasta station that just trows precooked noodles with precooked gravy in a pan is not worth it. Please make the omelette for breakfast fresh from the eggs, not from a premixed pot. The dessert bar is delicious, special thanks to Abd el Nasser.
The Thai restaurant is very tasty (but comparatively expensive).
