We have started booking hotels the last few years just by the reviews on trip advisor and I'm glad we did with this hotel.
Cant really add anymore than what has already been said about this place,it really is a little hidden gem and you do feel your somewhere different.
Just a quick run down rooms are clean and comfortable,restaruants are plentyful with a good selection of food (the pasta is the business) the 3 pools are really big with plenty of room for everyone (you get a clean pool towel everday) staff are good and are paid very little they like to joke around with you,the beach is not the best and is just dust really so if you are looking for a beach holiday then its not for you but if you like snorkeling/diving then its a definite YES.
It's VERY quiet in the night as most of the guest there are there for the diving and snorkeling so early to bed for most guest's,they do have a belly dancer show 1 night a week which is good and a bit cheesy but thats it,if your All Inclusive and dont want to be caught paying for extra drinks make sure you turn you watch forward 5-10 mins in the evenings same as "some" of the bar staff.....Hmmmm!!
On the beach turn right and there a few tents/cafe-bars go for some Egyptian tea and just chill out and watch people diving...the very last tent is owned by Abdel he just opened it the week we were there he used to work in a hotel and saved up all his money to open his own place pop in and have a cuppa with him he really is nice wise fella...with a cockney accent!
Another funny thing at Happy village there are 2 dogs that wander around the hotel as if they own the place but the Egyptians will go nowhere near them...the Sandy coloured one loves tourists/children and likes to just to hang out with you not begging for food but if you are an Egyptian she starts barking and chasing waiters,cleaners,bar staff around the pool...shouldnt laugh but it is funny to watch just as your swimming in the pool to see a dog chasing a waiter around the pool :-)
Definetly get the hotel bus into town we caught the 18:30 back by 21:00 this seems the most popular as the restaurant is still open when you get back.We booked our Blue Hole trip in Dahab town on the front next to the pedestrian hump back bridge £20 each included camel ride,snorkeling,transfers...Really good day out
