I stayed at Mirage for 7 nights with my boyfriend after a weekend of Cairo chaos. We had contacted the hotel directly before enquiring about a dive course and found the package very reasonable for the Open water dive course with virtually free accomodation with breakfast.
We were warmly welcomed and shown around. it's quiet at the moment as it is so hot but the hotel was intimate and it was great being surrounded by plentiful Bedouin cushions and staff being extremely attentive. Our room was a little basic but better than we expected and the air conditioning was a treat. Hot water too whenever we wanted. My boyfriend was ill with the famous 'Dahab dash' diarrhoea and vomiting (me too but not so bad) on our first night from eating at one of the busy town restaurants (Shark). Mirage were extremely sympathetic and the wonderful Said (waiter, cook, doting on any need!) prepared special food for him and we were fine when sticking to the food there.
The location was ideal, a 5 minute walk to town. it's quiet and so peaceful with a lovley bedouin area overlooking the sea and beautiful view of the Saudi Arabian mountains. It was great to be away from town because everytime we walked to town we got so much chat from all the restaurant front boys and venders. It was so nice to escape that at Mirage. We had to delay the start of our dive course due to our illness and Mirage immediately accomodated this. We had one to one tuition (2 dive instructors) who were patient and great fun.
We only wish we had had more time there. It is the kind of welcoming and relaxing place that you could stay for months!! Definitely worth another visit.
