Our diving group stayed at Daniela from 25 Aug to 4 Sep 2013. This was during the civil unrest in Egypt. We were completely unaffected by all of this. Dahab was a safe, tranquil and beautiful holiday destination.
The hotel catered superbly to our diving needs, including organising three day trips two by boat and one by camel so we could dive some of the further reefs. The dive masters Ahmed and Mohammed provided the perfect linear combination of guidance and free reign. They led the dives without fault, pointing out flora and fauna of interest while helping the less experienced divers and not cramping the more experienced divers in the group. The dives themselves are superb, and offer a stunning variety from sea grass, and shallow lagoons, to islands of coral, coral labyrinths, and spectacular wall dives. All with superb visibility and water temperatures allowing diving with only board shorts or 1mm wetsuits.
The accommodation was clean and comfortable with all needs and requirements catered for amicably if not with maximum possible luxury. At this price there is no complaints. Breakfast and dinner were ample, tasty and different everyday, with the staff always friendly if not fluent in English. The prices for lunch (which was not included in our package) and drinks were reasonable and could be ordered from the pool side bar :)
There were nightly trips to the shopping district of Dahab, as we were unaffected by the curfew in place in other parts of Egypt. Daniela also organised all our transfers to and from the airport, all dive sights and the day trips.
I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday, and highly recommend Daniela.
