“Nice Spot in Laid-Back Dahab”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We spent a week here while attending a yoga course out of the UK and were completely satisfied without being thrilled. The rooms are very simple, although our deluxe room came with fridge and coffee maker, which was good. On the downside, the bathroom was small and the shower simply primitive. Peeling paint on walls was atmospheric possibly, and king bed was huge and comfortable. Breakfast simple but filling, with solid Egyptian offerings. Staff was very good and accomodated every request. Excellent cheap laundy across the street. Beautiful location, albeit on the windy side of Dahab and about ten minute walk to the centre. Perhaps a bit of a dark walk into the main nightlife at night (donkey poo and uneven pavements, not worse), but lots of great restaurants just north in "Eel Gardens". Food just OK at the restaurant...stick to the simple things. Very nice pool. Relatively pricey transfers to SSH airport, oddly priced in UK pounds. Excellent yoga and diving offerings, which means that this good value place is often deservedly quite full, even in these trying times for Egyptian tourism.

Room Tip: Second floor toward the north will have fabulous views of the sea and (yes) Saudi arabia across the...

The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. It is clean and has a nice sunbathing beach in front but too reedy and rocky to swim. Food is ok. Quite a dark walk into town - about 10 minutes. Nice views from superior rooms. The restaurant and shop guys in town are nice but hard sell which is a bit annoying when you just want a casual stroll. Weather very dicey in February. But overall unspoilt and unusual. Low rise and hippified. Nice.

Simply put. "Brilliant". Friendly small business style personal touches with all the luxury needed to not make you regret avoiding the large impersonal hotels. Nice location away from the main quite busy strip of Dahab but still only a short beautiful beach walk away, should you choose to taste the nightlife. That said the food at the restuarant is excellent and if you need to just unwind your welcome to crash by the pool with your own bounty from a quick walk to the market for some bargain evening snacks of authentuic local food.

Room Tip: All front facing onto the Sea so no real bad choice. Upstairs, great view downstairs, poolside?

We had lunch here a few times very nice food and atmosphere.. indeed mezze excellent relaxed but prompt service. Nice chill out place..very helpful and friendly staff lost shoes returned. A cold pool as throughout dahab in Dec Jan..if you want to swim in a pool you have to go to a hotel with a heated one I think. Good easy access snorkeling on a windless day don't go if windy take shoes to walk off the coral and follow the divers..you can do yoga here but its a bit of a hike from where we were staying at other end of the beach.

Room Tip: no did not stay here only ate here.

I stayed at the Coral Coast for 13 nights. 7 nights pre-arranged with a yoga holiday from the UK. They have a yoga studio onsite which is spacious and looks out over the sea. They also have a tented area where you can chill out, and/or do your own practice. For a yoga holiday the hotel is perfect. After the 7 days we negotiated an upgraded room and a cheaper than list price for our remaining 6 nights. The staff at the hotel are the best. It has a very family feel to it, you feel the staff really care for you and are really helpful. I liked the location of the hotel too. It's not in the main lighthouse area, but a short 5 minute walk away. This makes it quiet and more secluded - no big groups of Russian divers to be seen! There's also plenty of other restaurants around, or a walk back to the lighthouse is also no problem. You can eat at the Bedouin tent and have an amazingly cooked meal of more food than can be humanly consumed. When I was there their dog had just had 8 puppies which was also amazing to see them growing daily.

I would definitely stay there again, and want to thank all the staff, esp Mido, Ibrahim, Wael, Akhmed who were so friendly and helpful and made my trip so amazing.

Room Tip: There are plenty of hotels in Dahab so just ask the staff whether they can do you a deal.
