we negotiated a good deal for 6 nights here at the end of a 4 month trek through Africa (always negotiate the price if you're turning up on spec!). It was a clean, comfy hotel with nice staff and a lovely pool and sun area. As per most of the hotels in the main hub it was salt water showers but they weren't as salty as others we've used so we were quite happy. breakfast was included at the restaurant or by the pool and was delicious. We'd recommend for anybody staying in Dahab to stay in the main area rather than out at the 5 star resorts that are so far away.

... Our room was cleaned when we got back!

I'm finding I need to develop a ***********t to people here. Everyone here ...

... non vegetarians, with delicious bedouin bread. A live Bedouin band played during the evening. We sat on Bedouin carpets with cushions spread everywhere with low tables. The Bedouins prepared the food to finish off Bedouin tea. Those who wanted to drink alcohol brought their own, but there have been occasions when the organised had a license to sell alcohol.
It is one of the most magical experience you could possibly experience and of course the ...
... the Bedouin’s saddle. I wonder if he was advertizing his camels for rides, or leading them home after a busy morning. These work horses of Egypt, desert camels still provide Bedouins with a source of income. I am somewhat awed by these mysterious hardy people, self-sufficient and close knit, able to eke out a living in this most desolate, hostile environment.
Like everywhere in Egypt, money is scarce. Keenly aware of the American dollars in ...
