“Relaxing hotel, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

Can’t compare Nesima Resort to any other hotel in Dahab, but it has a great location in the middle of the strip on the beach.

The Hotel is quiet and relaxing, as is the whole of Dahab, as it seems quit undiscovered in contrast to Sharm.

The dive centre was friendly and relaxed and really looked after me, considering some of the dives have a bit of a reputation for being both beautiful and deadly – the blue hole.

I only eat in the restaurant once, and the food was great value and quality. There are so many restaurants to try in Dahab, I have no complaints about the ones I visited.

Overall, if you want a relaxed holiday, with diving in the sun, in a quiet beautiful location, this is your place. Can’t wait to go back, so don’t tell too many people!

My partner had learned to dive at Nesima a few years ago and was so impressed by her experience that she insisted we return. There is a lot of competition for your business in this town but she was spot on.

I was equally impressed with the facilities, the relaxed atmosphere and very engaging and confidence inspiring guide. Recommend, unhurried and friendly approach not always so evidence in other local establishments.

I liked this hotel, It's quaint, very central and if you enjoy diving has a very good dive center attached to it. Yes the room was fairly small, but perfectly functional and air-conditioned and the bathroom wasn't huge either, but again entirely suitable to it's purpose. Having said that, I'm one of those that doesn't spend a lot of time in either. I'm on holiday, I can spend time in my own room at home, no need to travel all that way for that! The reception staff we're helpful and friendly as we're the staff that looked after the rooms. There is free wi-fi which worked well enough for the emails from my phone and an ATM (Bank machine) right outside the hotels entrance. It has a very nice pool with a bar on the one side and a great view out over the sea. The breakfast were quite plain, but there was plenty to eat and the quality of the food good. If asked whether I would stay there again; definitely yes.

Room Tip: If memory serves me, rooms 1 - 15 we're the ones with sea views. I personally never saw any of t...

I travelled to Dahab during Christmas with my husband and my visiting friend. We were surprised the rooms were very small but I enjoyed the architecture.

The hotel itself is very well kept. The staff is friendly and the food is tasty (definitely caters to western tastes).

I like how they had safe boxes in the lobby to keep your valuables because there were no screens on the windows in the rooms.

Great for the price and location! I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms face the water. Try to ask for one if it's available.

We had a lovely time in this resort for a second time. Pool is beautiful and it is nice to have a bar right there. The lemon squash is amazing. The only room worth having are the five around the pool. The others are very average! Firstly booked into those then changed to a pool one. The food at the bar and restaurant are nothing special but convenient. Overall we enjoyed this hotel.

I love this little gem at the coastal town of Dahab, perhaps the only nice and relaxed place along the Egyptian coast not overrun by mega-resorts and an endless stream of don't-care travellers.

The town is famous for it's incredible diving (mostly macro-life but we had the honor of meeting a 7 meter Whaleshark under water!) and the amazing Sinai desert in the backyard.

The hotel has incredibly friendly staff (even to Dahab standards which is a very friendly place in itself), very helpfull and the place has a nice architecture that makes you really feel far from home but comfortable too. As stated before, the rooms are somewhat small, we used two coupled ones for our young family which was defintely okay. With bigger rooms I would have given this hotel a 5/5 without a thought.

The location is great, just off the main part of the boulevard so it's not as hectic while with a few minutes walk you are in the middle of dozens of nice restaurants and shops. The boulevard is really an amazing place, especially at night. Hard not to love!

The restaurant offers definitely some of the highest quality food in town. Very well prepared (possibly the only good steak I ever had in Egypt) and normal portions too (I hate finishing with a full plate). It's slightly more expensive but quality-wise it's a good deal.

The swimming pool next to the boulevard is another great feature and is usually nicely busy in the afternoon when all divers have returned to the hotel. Pool-food and drink prices are very good by the way, somtimes even half of what you pay in the Laguna-resorts and of way better quality!

The diveschool is considered to be among the best in town and their guides have been absolutely great. In my three trips to Dahab I've never seen so much new species of macro life. There's more than enough room to move around and they try to do a very nice section of all divesites.

In if you can spend some time away from the diving, make sure to spend a night in the open Sinai desert with the guides from the hotel. It's an amazing experience to sleep under a million star blanket. We did it with young children (aged 2 and 3) and it was not a problem (they loved the adventure!).

All in all, after staying in three different Dahab hotels over the past years this will be my future choice.
