Travel Blogs from Dahab
"I heart Dahab" is Mike's comment of the day. Why? I'll give you a clue: when you pull into the town of Dahab, there is a statue of a windsurfer in the center of town. We arrived yesterday after a flight to Sharm el Sheik, about 50 minutes away. We hired a taxi in advance to drive us along the edge of the Sinai Mountains from the airport to dahab. …
As we were going to be in Egypt for my birthday, we decided to treat ourselves. Egypt is largely empty at the moment, and we found a Hilton 5* resort offering lagoon suites for less than the cost of a Travel Lodge in the UK. This was too good an opportunity to miss, so checked ourselves in for a week of luxury and relaxation on the banks of the Red …
Felucca sailing down the Nile was the most idyllic experience I have ever had. It was THAT good. We had 3 feluccas in our fleet and had 8 people on each. The boat is an open wide hull with a massive big mattress all over the boat from the mast back, where we lay in the sun, read books, chatted, drank, played games, sun baked, slept and ate.....for …
... were lovely, and now I find myself a finding-slugs-addict, also called nude-branches (the name originates from Latin so that's definitely not the way to spell it). They're basically tiny underwater slugs, always really colourful, pretty rare, and now a goal for me to see. And today I saw 3! One was called a Rupus Wartslug (I think) and the other two I am yet to look up.
The wind today though was the windiest day of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Dahab
My wife, 14 month baby and I have recently returned from this hotel. We have stayed at Sharm before but fancied somewhere quieter. From the minute we arrived until we left, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff and service levesl were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble.
Great diving holiday
We stayed at the Hilton Dahab in October 2005 and over new year 2004/5. Both times we had a lovely stay.
One of the good things is that rooms are good value so we could afford a separate room for our 15 year old daughter
The rooms are nice and big. The setting for the hotel is lovely. And the food is fantastic - a lot of choice and a range of food from different nationalities. Breakfast was particularly nice because at that time of year you could sit outside in the sunshine.
We went diving with Poseidon divers the second time and they were fanstastic. If you want to see some of the pictures we took diving go to --------
A very nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Dahab for two weeks in July 2005. We were given the holiday as a wedding present, and were really looking forward to staying in such a luxurious hotel for our honeymoon. We were not disappointed. The setting was outstanding- amazing views with the mountains behind the hotel and the stunning beach in front. The hotel grounds were well maintained and lush.
My husband and I greatly enjoyed our honeymoon at the Hilton Dahab in August 2005. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. They went out of their way for us, happily arranging an amazing candle-lit dinner on the beach, breakfast in our room etc. All of the service we received was excellent. Our suite was lovely, though the sofa and bathroom were a little tired. The hammock on the balcony was a great touch. Breakfast was good with lots of choice. The meals we had in the Italian and seafood restaurants (Portofino and Neptunes) were excellent and inexpensive (except for the wine which seems to be pricey in Egypt). The scuba diving was reasonably priced and professionally run. The beach and views were lovely. The grounds were quiet and felt comfortable, whereas the town was busy and unattractive. The resort didn't seem at all crowded, quite empty in fact, though that may have been the layout or time of year. I'm definitely looking forward to going back one day. Note that getting from Sharm el Sheikh airport to Dahab by taxi can be expensive (approx. £35 each way, a lot for an Egyptian taxi ride) as the drivers at the airport charge a lot and wont negotiate. I would recommend you pre-book transfers with the hotel or a tour operator if you can.
Extremely friendly staff
My friend and I loved the Hilton. After traveling and touring around Egypt for 10 days we were ready for some down time and the Hilton provided just that. It was a beautiful and clean hotel with a very friendly staff. Everyone we came in contact with had something kind to say and wanted to chat for a little while. We loved the beach and the hammock on our porch.
My wife and I spent a week in early November at the Hilton Dahab. One of the main reasons we chose it was that we believed that it would be less built up then the main resorts in Sharm. We were wrong, the Hilton is on a smallish bay, which has four other hotels and it has by far the smallest of the beaches. It was case of going out before breakfast to try and get a beach chair. Yes it is full of package tourists who do that!
I spent five nights at the Hilton Dahab at the end of October. Overall, I was very disappointed with both the beach and level of service. For a Hilton that says that it is four-star resort, it falls far short of other places I have stayed in Egypt.
Contrary to some positive reviews on the Hilton Dahab Resort, my holiday experience was totally ruined at checkout time. I was accused of breaking a kettle and after spending almost 8 hours at the police station, on the advice of my consul I was forced into admitting it and paying 450 pounds in order to catch my flight. The hotel manager, the elusive Peter Forsyth did not find the time to listen to my complaints and I ended up being accused of breaking the kettle and refusing to pay for it by the Egyptian managers in the hands of the Egyptian police.
Four of us spent four nights in two separate rooms at the Hilton Dahab. After spending a few weeks in much more "budget" accomodation , the Dahab Hilton was wonderful. We were originally booked into one of Dahab's lower budget hotels, but after seeing our rooms we decided we could not spend the precious last few days of our holiday in a dump, so we picked up our bags and walked to the Hilton.
What a lovely experience
I've now stayed 4 times in the Dahab Hilton in the last 6 months. I have to say that it is one of the nicest hotel experiences I have had in a long time. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the food is good, but above all the staff are the happiest, friendliest and most helpful I have come across. Everyone from the gardeners to the beach attendants are friendly and smiley all day long. Well done!
