This is my second visit to Dahab, but the first time at this Hotel!!!! As in the words of 'Arnie Swarz' - "We will be back!!!!" Had a fab two weeks here although temperature cooler than normal with a few cold winds!!! I needed a Cardigan in the evening. The second week got hotter and we returned with colour. Great service and friendly staff! Mr Bean in the evening bar upstairs is a riot and mad football supporter!!! If male guests are invited to play footie with the staff at the hotel, rumour has it, it is an experience to behold!!!! Buchi and the excursion team are a riot and very helpful. Staff bend over backwards in the hotel, u always get service with a smile!!! Swimming Pool warm too! Down sides are a lack of entertainment in the evening and variety of local food or themed nights.
If you have had a dream, tell Buchi about it!!!! An evening at Wady Connection was a peaceful experience and for those who like to do off the beaten track stuff and to mix amongst the locals, it is a must!! The views over Dahab at night and to see Saudia Arabia across the water is quiet breathtaking!!! The trip to the Bedouin night and the White and Red Canyons is something else!!!! Made some great friends and we hope to go back to Dahab for a week at the end of October. Food was basic, but enjoyable! For a holiday on a budget and if your requiring all the basics with the love and warmth of the people and all the water sports and cultural interests, you will not be disappointed. Laylla Bar in the main town is great for snacks, drink and to loaf in the Sun. Ali Baba Restaurant is a must, a fabulous place and great to visit if you are celebrating a special occasion and fancy splashing out a little. The service is outstanding and the Lobster and Tiger Prawns are to die for!!!! If you fancy a chilled night, then the Dolphin Restaurant smoking the 'Apple Shisha' is fun! They do great food, especially Kebabs late at night, when you have supped the local Beers either ‘Sekara or ‘Millers’!!!! A great campfire in a cosy atmosphere and a stones throw away from ‘The Tree Bar’ a local disco in the town, where we had a bit of a bop!!!! There is also Rush Bar and Mojito, but all were quiet due to it being low season.
Beware of being pestered to go in the shops by the locals!!! Be firm, but polite when refusing their beckoning gestures. They are after all, trying to make a living and the current climate has been bad for them, especially since the revolution. Use the local taxi service, cheap and an experience to behold. We had a top fortnight and the warmth of the staff in the Hotel and people in resort, made our trip a fabulous experience. Back home now in the UK now, eager to return!
