We booked this hotel largely on the basis of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and our choice was completely justified by our experience there. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was outstanding. Our son was taken ill towards the end of our stay, and we had to return home early. The management and staff could not have been more helpful, in helping to organise an earlier flight for us. They also refunded the unused portion of our room payment, and I doubt if many hotels anywhere would have done this. I'm not sure what star rating the hotel has "officially", but their attitude to their guests is worth six stars in anybody's money.
Great attention was paid to cleanliness, and the food and service in the hotel restaurant was excellent (though visitors who want to sample other options have only to walk fifty yards in either direction for a choice of a dozen alternatives). The dive centre (Seadancer) attached to the hotel is also excellent, and very moderately priced (compared with centres elsewhere in the world that I have used: I cannot compare them with other centres in Dahab as we didn't use any others).
The hotel provides a good shuttle service to and from Sharm airport (30 Euros each way). Worth taking advantage of this: the 30 Euros is per trip, not per person, so it works out very reasonably for an hour's journey if you are a family.
If I have to mention one shortcoming - and it is a very tiny one - it is that the shower area in the ensuite bathroom was rather small, and the wet shower curtain clings to you if you draw it around the tray. If you don't use the curtain, the bathroom gets very wet. Not sure what could be done other than putting a glass door on the shower. A suggestion for the next time the hotel is redecorated, perhaps.
