“A paradise on earth”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

This really a fantastic hotel we enjoyed our stay there. It is the best place to relax and forget about the intense and stress of your work.

Its fantastic location that enables you to chill out without hassle or crowd.

The room was of suitable size and the beds were comfortable. The room service staff were very helpful and friendly. A three stars hotel but you feel that you are in a five stars hotel.

We are coming back to this hotel again

My wife and I loved the setting at the Dahab Paradise every room has a fantastic view and we felt very welcome due to the friendly and helpful staff. The manager LouLou gets a special mention.

However for us there were a few aspects that left us feeling a little disappointed overall. The pool was too cold to swim (OK it was February), the food was very hit and miss (but that did mean we tried a number of places in Dahab and can recommend the Blue House Thai) and the room was tired and on the small side.

Great spot just a bit rough round the edges for us!

There are a couple of rough edges, like the wifi sucking beyond measure, and the food being a bit limited, but for the price Dahab Paradise is fantastic: excellent, basic rooms, the friendliest staff imaginable, and an onsite rep from a superb dive outfit. I will return!

I needed a break from weeks of constant travel, time to just sit and do nothing. Dahab Paradise was perfect. This was my second visit to Dahab. Stayed at Mecure Bay View last time which was great but much further out of town and i also wanted something smaller and friendlier. Dahab Paradise delivered. Yes three star rooms, but I felt like a 5 star guest and it was excellent value for money. Great panoramic view of the Red Sea and Dahab from my top floor room and deck, wonderful lashings of food at the almost Balinese style open air ( roofed and BYO grog) restaurant, and lovely smiling and happy staff. Comfy bed. Just a short taxi ride to town (15LE) if you must. Reception can organize all and any activities you desire including trips to Jordan, safaris, snorkeling etc. There is a dive centre on site. However, due to my desire for complete chillax I only went as far as taking taxi ride to town a couple of times. Lot less hassle from vendors than in Cairo or Luxor and everyone still laid back and super friendly despite the troubles and downturn in tourist numbers. Books and magazines in the library at reception if u run out of reading material. Lovely sunny pool looking over the sea for lolling and lounging. Felt really at home here. Special thanks to the guys in the restaurant who kept my coffee coming and to the lovely Lou Lou at reception, a kindred Aussie spirit who's made Dahab her home and who can blame her...I didn't want to leave either.

Beautiful property right on the Red Sea, away from the hustle and bustle tourist center of Dahab. Its less than a ten minute ride to the center of town though, so for travelers who like quiet, this is the place to be! Every single room really does have an ocean view. When you look out your window, you see the pool and then the wide open Red Sea – an unbeatable view! It’s a very well-kept property, the rooms are made up well daily and the property is serene with sun-bathing chairs and hammocks around the pool.

While our stay was certainly lovely, there were a few drawbacks. There are flies everywhere on the property - by the pool and at the on-site restaurant. They were quiet a nuisance. We travelled to many other places in Egypt where properties of this type were not swarming with as many flies. Second, the restaurant was disappointing. The breakfasts were included and ok, but the burger was dry and over spiced, the pizza was soggy, and the beef was rubbery. On the other hand, the shrimp and fish filet were very good, and the juices and milkshakes were excellent! Also, they are accommodating and will arrange tours and Bedouin dinners upon request, but they don’t go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They didn’t even offer a list of the tours available upon check-in, we had to ask for one the next day. To be among the properties of the caliber they describe, they certainly need to have a more pro-active hospitable attitude. Lastly, the bathroom smelled really bad and it definitely wasn't us! While they made up the rooms every morning, whenever we would return, there would be a foul smell (smell of waste) in the entire room! We would constantly air out the room, which provided momentary relief, but it was definitely a drawback. Also, like most of Egypt, you usually have to wait a few minutes between each person in your party showers because they are low on hot water and the water tanks need to re-fill.

Overall, a peaceful property with a lot of potential, especially for the price you pay, but with a few drawbacks.

Dear SUR27,

Thank you for choosing to stay at Dahab Paradise and sharing your informative review with others on Tripadvisor.

Your feedback is valuable to us and thank you for making us aware of the issues you had during your stay.

Here at Dahab Paradise we like to exceed our guests' expectations, we are sorry to hear that our restaurant on this occasion fell short. I have passed on your comments to our Food and Beverage department to ensure that consistency and high standards are maintained at all times

We have fly traps in the restaurant and garden which reduce the number of flies considerably. The fly traps are removed from time to time to be cleaned – we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We hope to welcome back to Paradise in the near future to share in our hospitality.
