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!

- Jaz Dahabeya is situated directly on the sandy beach of the natural lagoon by the Red Sea resort of Dahab, just a one hour drive from Sharm El Sheikh International Airport and only two hours from Taba International Airport.

The scenery surrounding the hotel is breathtaking, looking over the lagoon to the mountains of Sinai and Saudi Arabia as a backdrop.
