We arrived very early after staying 1 night in Sharm. What a blessing it was to get there. This was our second visit to the Dahabeya and the staff on reception recognised us from last year and accommodated us with the rooms we asked for. Even though we didn't stay the first night, they gave us our all inclusive straightaway. We love the hotel and staff, it is in an idyllic setting with a lovely pool area and beautifully maintained garden area. The private sandy beach with clear waters is complete paradise. The food was fantastic with plenty of choice, something for everyone. Chef is always on hand and welcomes any comments from guests. 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 the long hours they work. Ashraf and Ibrahim at the beach bar brought ice cream cocktails over to us every day which was a really lovely touch. Staff are lovely and we have a great laugh with them, Diaa, Wageh, Nazir (restaurant), , Mena, Ibrahim, Ali, Magdea (sorry if I have spelt any names wrong (bars)and Mahmoud (towels) to mention a few. Love the animation staff, Motaz and Willy are great people and although we didn't join in with all the activities, they would always spend time with us on the beach or at the bar. The shows in the evening are good too.
We are definitely going back next year - can't wait. This is a lovely place for anyone wanting a quiet relaxing holiday. You can do as little or as much as you want. The guys selling trips on the beach will always stop and talk to you even if you don't buy anything. The Egyptian people are very friendly and love the Brits because we are polite, say please and thank you, enjoy a joke with them. We went to Masbat one evening on the free minibus and one of the staff from the hotel office Mahmoud Elshami walked around with us and showed us the sights. Everyday he stopped and chatted to us. As I have said before lovely people, this was our 8th trip to Egypt and I would recommend it to anyone. There is no trouble in the Red Sea Resorts that we could see.

The scenery surrounding the hotel is breathtaking, looking over the lagoon to the mountains of Sinai and Saudi Arabia as a backdrop. The bay is one of the most sought after destinations for windsurfers keen for the ultimate challenge and many other attractions, such as the Mountain of Moses, St. Catherine Monastery and the Coloured Canyon are close to hand. Service and warm hospitality complete the picture as Jaz Dahabeya has won several awards including Holiday Check 2005, TUI Holly Award 2006 and L’Tur best 100 hotels word-wide in 2007. ... more less
