We were a little apprehensive about this booking as we had no formal confirmation and a deposit was not asked for, so not the normal booking procedure one would expect. However, once we arrived we now understand that this is how business is done in Dahab, very relaxed!! All was fine though, our taxi driver was at the airport and the booking was all as expected. We had a ground floor double room with a/c which was basic but had everything we needed. The shower is very salty!! Breakfast was great, lots of choice. The diving was amazing, Hamdy our instructor was brilliant. I was a bit nervous about doing this activity as i am not too keen on the sea but Hamdy was very reassuring which relaxed me that there was nothing to worry about.
Many people staying here are travelers and especially groups but on the whole most people were there for diving so people were in bed at a decent hour!
The food in the restaurant was very nice, although if you want cheaper then go to the street. Also Fighting Kangaroo was amazing, typical Egyptian dinner for E£15!!
We had a great time and the staff are fantastic!
