“Wonderful stay at Daniela”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

We had a wonderful time at Daniela. The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The food was tasty. We enjoyed our dive masters, Ahmed & Mohammed, who were professional, caring and entertaining. My husband learnt a thing or two from playing soccer with the staff teams on the village's sand field! We would love to return. We were unaffected by media reports of unrest - Dahab is a peaceful centre and we were able to enjoy evening commutes to the waterfront to experience restaurants and shopping. The diving is magnificent - the reefs and colours are spectacular.

Daniela Village and Dive Center is a small piece of paradise. The dive sites in and around Dahab are worth the trip. Less crowded and certainly less commercial than Sharm, Dahab offers kind, friendly, down to earth people and environs. If you are not a diver, St. Katherine's is close. In addition, Daniela can arrange day trips to nearby countries, including Petra. The rooms are more than comfortable, with attention to detail. The desert environment is harsh on structures, but it is evident that Daniela strives to keep up with it all. I will return to Daniela Village.

A nice hotel, offering lots of great activities (St Catherine & desert trip, horse riding,..) and an excellent diving center with great instructors and very nice staff. Our three kids and us have very much enjoyed the vacations.

This little place is a family owned and run business that is simply a piece of heaven! Location of the hotel is right beside the blue hole, which is the best destination in dahab for diving, prestine beaches and very clear water.

Rooms are big and clean, but don't have a TV in the room to ensure you socialize and participate in the various activities the hotel has to offer.

Staff is super friendly, atmosphere is relaxing and you would feel positive vibes all around the property.

Food in breakfast is simple but dinners were so delicious we didnt want to eat outside the hotel.

Overall: highly recommended!!

This is THE plce to stay if you plan to visit Dahab, blue hole etc. it's a 15 min walk or cheap cab ride from the noisy centre of Dahab so very peacefull. Built on the site of the old marine observatory it has its own coral reefs, beach even a freshwater pool. I've been back many times on my own and with my family. But inevitably others are starting to develop this strech of coast so go soon before it's charm is lost!

My partner Chris and I recently spent two weeks at the Daniela Hotel. From our arrival until we left on Xmas Eve, the staff at the hotel were always ready to help and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. The setting of the hotel is superb, perched between the ever-changing vistas of the mountains and the blue sea, itself covering an undiscovered kaleidoscopic world of its own. Apart from passing camels and their riders, the peace and quiet is almost palpable - an oasis of calm in the mad world of economic and political turbulence we experience in Europe.

I have always loved Egypt and its people, having travelled there many times for both work and play - however, following a change of career into medicine, I last visited Cairo almost twenty years ago. The staff at the Daniela reminded me of all the terrific people I knew in Egypt and their inimitable Egyptian way of looking at life. Our stay at the Daniela hotel, interacting with all its employees in Dahab, presented a very positive image of both Egyptian hospitality and the generosity and dignity of its people - this is all the more commendable in these more troubled and uncertain times.

The hotel bathrooms could benefit from updating but who expects power showers in the desert? By dint of an extended stay, the buffet food did become somewhat "samey" but always prepared with care and attention. We have eaten in 2 and 3 star Michelin restaurants in other countries and our expectations have usually been as well met as they were at the Daniela. Despite the lamentable lack of guests before Xmas due to the inexorable grinding of the political machine in Cairo, the chef and his team continued to produce and serve appetising meals with enthusiasm - well done.

The Daniela Diving Centre will be reviewed separately - I must comment the team of Ahmed, Mohammed and Ali once again to the hotel owner - they are a credit to you. I spent six years working throughout the Gulf States, the Levant and Egypt and the diving team reminded me of how much I miss spending time in the Arab World. As I have always found, working with Egyptians does have an inherent charm which is both entertaining and reassuring.

Chris would not forgive me if I did not mention that the addition of a jetty onto the reef would be a very welcome addition to the Daniela's attractions. In two weeks we never managed to co-ordinate with the tidal timings to allow us to swim out to the reef drop-off - when visiting friends in a nearby hotel, we used both of their jetties to do just this!

This property and its staff do everything to make one feel "at home", welcomed warmly into a safe environment, an escape from the stress and troubles of life here in public service in the NHS and charity sectors. Thank you very much for that.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a domed ceiling and good-sized balconies with sea views. Ground floor rooms...

We stayed in this hotel the first week of december. We enjoyed it very much. Beautiful location with private beach and house reef in front of the hotel. White buildings in egyptian style. You feel in another world (when you come from Europe). Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food. This hotel has only 40 rooms all with seaview. We stayed in the first floor with nice balcony and great view over the Red Sea. Quiet surrounding but only 10 taxi minutes from the centre of Dahab. The only thing I disliked is they have no wifi in the hotel. You can use the computer in the lobby but for me it was not convenient.

Room Tip: We stayed in 207, but all rooms have sea view.
