It's safe to say over the years I have fallen in love with Dahab and this was my second visit to the Dahabeya, which is my favourite hotel in the area.
The hotel is set in beautifully manicured grounds on a perfect stretch of private sandy beach with crystal clear waters - complete paradise.
The food was fantastic but did get slightly repetitive towards the end of our stay (would usually go in to Masbat to mix things up a bit but due to travel advice stayed on the resort). The Italian meal on the beach under the stars was really amazing though and very romantic. The staff at the Dahabeya are what really make the hotel. They really couldn't do enough for you and always have a smile on their face despite working long hours. The guy at the beach bar brought drinks over to us every day which was a really nice touch and the guys at the diving centre kept us entertained with their stories & banter.
Brilliant for water sports and snorkelling - lots of pretty fish & coral - you can literally get lost for hours exploring. Beware not to stalk the crabs too much though - my wife became slightly obsessed and when sat in the sea relaxing the next day, she felt something on her arm only to find a rather large angry looking red and black crab attached to her. Totally amusing for me and the other guests. I have never seen anything larger than hermit crabs in the lagoon so I am guessing it was seeking revenge for the little fellas ... haha!!
The perfect holiday. Complete relaxation in paradise and wouldn't have changed a thing!!!
