This spot is AMAZING. The staff are incredible, the location is perfect (right on the water), the cost is inexpensive and there is a Penguin Restaurant right next door overlooking the water which is also inexpensive (Penguin guests get 20% off). We only stayed one night because we had to get to Cairo to catch a flight but we honestly could&'ve stayed weeks. There is a dive center connected to the property which is also inexpensive if you need to dive the red sea (23 euros or so) No need to see any other places. this is definitely the spot you want. its the BEST spot we&'ve ever been and Dahab is incredible.

Good budget accommodation. Nice restaurant with warm and friendly staff. Superb location - about 10mins walk from principal drag so nice and noiseless in the evenings. Superb communication and taxi service to and from Sharm Airport.

It is no luxury but nice, clean and staff are extremely warm and friendly help wherever they can.

Excellent! Andy and Afmad were really helpful, so kind, and nice boys. They arrange me the local tour to Mt. Sinai (US$20) and also the van to Taba (US$40). They have a diving shop too (PADI Open water US$240 / only English).

  Customer Review 

Dive centre was great and staff extemely helpful. Low-cost accomodation suited to people who don&'t expect everything for nothing, (ideal for backpackers! ). Dahab is a great spot to escape the hustle of Egypt. Despite the &"unsafe&" wrap Egypt has been given recently, I have felt as safe (if not safer) here as any other country I&'ve visited, (20 within the last year! ).
