“A beautiful hotel that needs renovation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

The hotel has it all in terms of location, Architecture and amenities, but is could use renovation, the AC barely worked and the lakes need to be cleaned.

The staff are very helpful and friendly, but the breakfast was very poor for a 5 stars.

I know Dahab well & know the accommodation options eg Ibis styles, blue beach, Dahab paradise & Bedouin moon & Meriden etc . Unfortunately due to political climate in Egypt effecting tourism & big operators (UK, German etc pulling out) this has had big consequences on the hotels in Dahab. When we went in October it was a very reasonable deal (inclusive of flight) to the Hilton it was barely 10% full & that had effect on the quality of service & quality of the buffet etc. so whilst this did not spoil our holiday as we know the place & the area I would not recommend the Hilton. The hotel is tired & needs a refit (major one). The rooms are surrounding by water that once must have been very impressive but now are stagnant pools & crumbling concrete. Whilst I can see through thus what let this hotel down for me was the service. The front of house management didn't care & seemed too aloof. The breakfast buffet staff didn't care about their few guests but more concerned in setting out 100 places for lunch (they only had about 20 guests) on the dot of 11am whether you had finished your breakfast or not. Catering management just say around and ate rather than checking or asking the few tables they had. I saw plates left for days outside rooms that no one seemed to check. So comparing this to Ibis Styles next door I would chose to stay there for better service.

I have been to Dahab many times, usually 3 times per year. I have always stayed at The Dahab Resort including since the Hilton left. It still retains the same management and staff who make this hotel very special. They cannot do enough for you to enjoy your stay. The hotels beach front makes a very good place for families to relax and for the kids to have fun safely. There are plenty of other activities when you feel energetic. If you go All-Inclusive, which I always do, all your food and drinks are covered. The breakfast is plentiful to set you up for the day. Lunch can be had at the beach or the restaurant. Evening dinner has a different theme each evening with good choice. The chefs will also prepare you something if fancy something else. To start the evening off or finish it off, or both, Magdy in the Winjammer Bar will make the perfect cocktail of your chioce!! After many stays I can only say 'Thank You' to the management and staff and that I will be seeing soon.

i stayed in the hotel for 4 nights with my wife and i can say the staff was nice and helpful , the hotel have an extremely quiet and relaxing atmosphere , and i'm thinking of going again
pros:
- Great location and maybe the best beach
- Clean and nice room
- modest Gym but free
- the food is nice but not a five star hotel especially the dinner, i can say best value for money since it wasn't expensive.
cons:
- nothing. Go and you won't regret it

Fantastic holiday! We actually went in August of 2012 but as I've just joined, I thought I'd review now. The manager and all the staff were extremely polite and helpful. Our room was amazing which the manager had kindly upgraded for us. Very clean and beautifully presented. Nothing was too much for the people here.

Smaller than the other hiltons we have been to but a more warm and friendly atmosphere. Right on the beach situated within a serene bay. Would recommend to anyone looking for a more peaceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle of sharm but with all the beauty!

We stayed here after going to Dahab a few times, and we were very pleased. The hotel is clean and surrounded with water. We enjoyed the private beach and pool area. It is a little far to get to all the restaurants, but we just took taxis down to the main strip. Dahab is one of my favorite places in the world, so staying in a nice hotel was a good addition.
