This is the best kept secret for a fantastic place for an amazing holiday,
i first went to b.moon in july2011, went alone a bit worried about being single but badly needed a break from work, i will never look back. This place is so friendly you soon think you have been there for ever with your best friends and family, jillian does a great job of introducing you to other guests, In my opinion her weight is held in gold this allows you to tap in to other guests or do your own thing as you like, i had such a great week i returned for new year , jillian was again playing her hostess part and making us all so welcome, jazz who works at the dive desk was a fantastic addition, she was polite, friendly , proffessional and fun always there to greet you in the morning, and even joined us in the evening. i left my shoes out there and she even organised to send them back to the uk, what more could you ask for a genuine sweet heart she made our holiday in every way all the guests were commenting on the high level of professionalism and genuine lovly people, and becky in the office was also highly profficient, it isnt five star but heh when you have such a wonderfull atnosphere it all about the people not the hotel room!! thankyou and for anyone whos thinking about it just go im sure you will have an awesome time

I stayed at the Bedouin Moon for a week just after Christmas. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy some sunshine and the wonderful diving in the Red Sea with Reef 2000. I paid a supplement for a sea view and waking up to a view over the sea to Saudi Arabia was lovely. There were a lot of mosquitoes so pack repellent!
The staff were all friendly and kind and the pool is a lovely place to relax after diving.

The hotel isn't constructed to developed world standards (door frames aren't quite square, the steps aren't exactly the same size etc). It is also a bit tatty, with some loose / chipped tiles, cracked paintwork etc. However, for the price it is comfortable, the staff are friendly, and the breakfast, nutritious and satisfying, if basic. I have stayed here twice now and would stay again.

On my second stay in December the mosquitoes were out in force in Dahab and made trying to fall asleep a bit miserable. The hotel isn't adequately protected against them (there was a screen door on the toilet window only, and only one bed in a twin room was protected by a mosquito net) so you will need to deal with them if you stay here when mosquitoes are active. After getting bitten for two days, I found the below strategy to be effective in minimising bites.

1) Use a plug in repellant (insecticide based) during the day.
I picked one up in a pharmacy for 25 Egyptian Pounds. This device halved the number of mosquitoes in the room.

2) Use a knock down spray on the remaining mosquitoes before sleeping. These sprays are available everywhere in Dahab and also provided by the hotel.

3) Put on some insect repellant (also easy to find in local pharmacies)

4) Wear long sleeved clothes (if you can get outdoors / adventure clothes impregnated with permethrin even better)

5) Turn on the A/C whilst sleeping. For some reason, after the A/C was turned on, the mosquitoes would get noticably agitated, and land less frequently.

I found doing the above would minimise bites. Although the above seems a bit convoluted, the construction standards meant there were plenty of gaps for the mosquitoes to infiltrate the room, necessitating multi-layered protection. For instance, without using the knockdown spray, mosquitoes would buzz incessantly, making falling asleep difficult, even if you knew you were protected by the repellants and long clothes. If you don't use the repellants and don't wear long clothes, just using knock down spray on the mosquitoes in the room, more will infiltrate the room after you fall asleep and get you.

Spent two very chilled weeks here diving with Reef 2000. As others have said, if you're after 5 star luxury this hotel wont be for you. But if you need to relax in a friendly place, this hotel is ideal. Rooms are basic but clean, there were alot of mosquitos but a net was provided in the room.
For divers, this place is perfect. Most of the other guests were divers and were all friendly.We were very sad to leave and we're already plotting next years visit.

Room Tip: Pick a sea view room to get woken up the sea..

i received my PADI card through the post today. And with it came the memories of the week i spent at this hotel and the guys at Reef2000. First time travelling alone and it was brilliant - the staff and the other divers make you feel comfortable and welcome - the room overlooked the mountains and although basic i wasn't paying for frills but for diving. The hotel was clean and quiet and the whole of the area you learn is basically a hippy town of divers, windsurfers yoga centres and restaurants and with an air of chilax. This is not sharm, nor does it want to be - where sharm is more blackpool this place is more Glastonbury in the chill factor.

If you want to dive and learn to dive come here the guys are friendly intelligant not arrogant and want the best from you to pass and to be able to take you on some great dives -

if i had the dough now i would be typing this from there now....
