I have stayed in Sheikh Salem at least 6 or 7 times since 2005. What I like most about Sheikh Salem is the location, away from the busy part of Dahab, the Arisha and the Bedouin Garlic bread with Cheese. Hmmmm
It is a little like a home away from home and I do like the people who work there as well as the atmosphere. The rooms are not expensive.
The rooms are not fancy but spotless and cleaned as are the sheets, the duvets are dry cleaned. What more does a girl need. There are rooms for all budgets.
The matresses in some of the rooms need to be changed as they can cause back aches and sleepless nights. Which no doubt will be done soon.
The beach infront is clean and the water is pristine clear and clean.
The Arisha is the gathering place for everyone and it really is a chilled place with good atmosphere.
The bedouin bread with garlic and cheese is beyond heavenly.
The staff are helpful, freindly and try and accomadating.
Gomma, Mohamed, Mohamed are nice guys who do their best to make guests happy.

Just chill and chat with …
The next day we had to wake up at 530 in the morning for our tour. The reason being the extreme humidity because we were pretty much going in the desert. After an incredible all you can eat breakfast we headed to the Valley of the Kings. This is where all the Kings from the 18th Dynasty on were burried. Like i said before, their were 30 Dynasties. The first dynasty is pretty much the first recording of human civilization. There was life before this but very little physical ...
... incredible how preserved everything is. All over egypt all the hisorical monuments are in superb condition. Ofcourse lots is destroyed but their are many things still standing. What makes all these sites interesting is the history behind it. THis is where Ihab teaches us all he knows. So im sure it doesnt sound to interesting by me writting but believe me, it is unbelievalbe. Next we went to the Luxor temple which was mostly ...
... Funny at first but after the 550,000 time its annoying. All asking "where you from" so we would pick the most remote islands or make up countries and had our own fun. You cannot get anywhere directly either. They all claim to take you there.. only via a few bazaars, museums, restaurants. I'm getting really good at doing runners when they wont listen to me when i yell at them. Some though are totally lovely and have the most beautiful pale green eyes you've ...
