“Ten Days in Dahabeya.”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

The Iberotel in Dahab makes for one of the best places to holiday! The location, coupled with the excellence of the hotel, becomes the perfect retreat for a winters holiday, 5 hours flight away from U.K. This was our third time staying at the Hotel, and it still served its magic, restoring our energy to get through the rest of our British winter. The hotel is a perfect size...small enough to get know other people and travellers. It has a beautiful clean swimming pool, and is set on the beach where you can swim and snorkel from. The hotel is concerned about the environment and puts measure in place to address this e.g. by placing a card on bed if you wished sheets to be changed.The rooms are cleaned daily with clean sheets and towels and you are given a free bottle of water. We arrived late at night, and we had been left some tempting juicy salad ingredients and fruit and cheese as we had missed the main meal. Thoughful! After a couple of days your waiter gets to know you well and your drinks are ready on the table! The food is excellently prepared and there is a good variety to please all palettes. The soups are wonderful!
The hotel runs a free shuttle bus to Dahab three times a day. Dahab was once a fishing village and in the sixties became a bit of a hippie idyll. Consequently there are interesting little shops and restaurants where you can sit and have mint tea or beer, or sample freshly caught fish, listening to the lapping waves. The weather usually boasts clear blue skies and in January was between 27 -29 degrees. Beautiful! The staff of the hotel treat one with great respect and think ahead about your needs and how they can make your day perfect. But they are not intrusive at all. There is no sense of the troubles in Cairo which is a 5 hour drive away away and we came home, chilled and relaxed with a wonderful feeling of wellbeing. We will be returning!

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Having just returned from a very restful and relaxing week at the Iberotel Dahabeya near Dahab, Egypt I can see why so many previous trip advisor reviews speak highly of this place. The weather was perfect - 27-29 degrees, blue skies - and at just over 5 hours away from the UK represents a great place for a winter sunshine break. The hotel is clean and well planned and has all the amenities you need. But the highlight aside from the great location on the beach in a small bay is unquestionably the staff who make every effort to make you feel welcome and looked after. Most remember your name after asking once and are genuinely nice people interested in ensuring you have an unhassled time during your stay. Ashraf at the beach bar, Mohammed in the restaurant and Arafa who cleaned the room were especially brilliant - but everyone was across the board really. Arafa's towel art is magnificent and made the return each day from a hard day at the beach or pool a joy! The food was okay throughout but could do with more focus on Egyptian cuisine and not so many international remakes. Salad's were fresh and the variety was surprising given the hotel only had 27% occupancy during our stay. No sense of any 'troubles' that beset Northern Egypt currently make this a good place to go. Dahab town is a little on its knees and getting more run down as tourism declines - lucky they have the fantastic diving! It was a really relaxing trip and can recommend it if you just want to chill. Snorkelling and wind surfing are great.

Room Tip: Do definitely go for the sea facing first floor rooms - 1226-1231 or 2226-2231 they are well worth i...

This was our first stay at this hotel and we both really enjoyed it. The staff were without fail incredibly friendly and keen to help. We had a room by the pool, which was nice and cool as it was out of the sun for most of the day.

The food in the restaurant was good and there was plenty of choices, but the same dishes did crop up for most of the trip.

The person who cleaned our room made us towel swans and monkeys every day. One day he saw my girlfriend's birthday cards and arranged a cake for her - its the touches like this that made our stay really enjoyable.

On a practical footing, whilst the hotel is not in the centre of town, there is a little corner shop next door run by a very nice man and a pharmacist just down the road. The hotel also runs a free shuttle bus into Dahab 3 times a day.

Room Tip: The pool view rooms are pretty good for access to the whole of the site.

We cannot praise this hotel & location enough. First time in egypt, so didnt know what to expect. Have to say, dont let what you here about the troubles in Cairo put you off (you wouldnt know). The hotel is spotless, food fantastic with a choice ive never seen. Staff that cannot do enough for you & so friendly, from the management to the cleaners. A big mention for DIAA, our waiter at mealtimes, brilliant. Although you are an hour away by taxi to Sharm, we quite liked that, as sharm is lovely to visit, but not our choice to stay there. Dahab town is the true Egypt you want to see. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel to Dahab town. There is also every watersport to be done on the beachfront of this hotel. We couldnt believe what good value for money this place is. 4STAR, i dont think so, 5STAR absolutely!!!!!!!!! Will definately return......

Room Tip: Dont choose ground floor room if you want good seaview, first floor room seaview excellent.....

Fantastic location if you are into windsurfing with the Harry Nass station attached to the hotel. Very friendly and competent staff, excellent food. Comfortable and clean rooms. Despite the comments from other reviewers the selection at the restaurant and the temperature of the pool leave nothing to be wished for. Maybe these people just need a reality check…

Do NOT let the political situation put you off from coming here. The IS no political situation!! The people in the Sinai need you to come and visit, they rely on you for their livelihood.
After all, would you not visit London just because there are demonstrations in Edinburgh? And Cairo is about twice as far away from Dahab...
