I left cold Norway with some friends and stayed one week at Le Meridien Dahab 17-25th of march 2012.
The hotel is quite wonderful, and has a architecture that is delightfully laidback and works good with the surrounding nature.
The food we ate was quite good, in exception of one dish the first night at Vie Restaurant, but next time we ate there the food was very good. The rest of the meals was absolutely acceptable.
The breakfast buffet was not huge, but always very good and tasty. I recommend everyone to get up in the mornings and eat breakfast at the buffet (Sea Breeze restaurant)
The service at the hotel is professional and efficient. Most of them was also smiling and nice.
I stayed in a sea view room. The room was very nice, and the outdoor shower was a sweet way to wake up in the mornings. The outdoor sitting area in the seaview room had a nice view, but not so private. People passed on the track next by the terrace, so thats a matter of taste.
A friend had a normal room without seaview, the view was not so nice there, but the terrace was more private. Also those rooms are almost identical to the deluxe rooms and are also very nice.
Beverage prices were quite good for a five star hotel. A 0,5 beer costed 30L.E in the restaurants. This is nothing compared to what I payed at 5 star in Sharm two years ago (Ritz-Carlton) Food and beverage is also much cheaper in Dahab than in Sharm el Sheikh.
The beach is nice, and there were plenty of areas to sit and enough sunbeds. The hotel was not fully booked though.
The house reef is nice, it does not have sudden reef drops, so you do not jump from a jetty here on the outside of the reef. You simply walk by steps into the water which is also family friendly and nice for beginners that want to try snorkeling and scuba.
The reef is a lagoon type with sandy bottom, and the corals are on rocky islands and small walls. A big stingray, emperor angelfishes, big sohal surgeonfishes and nice butteflyfishes are examples of what I caught on my UW camera.
The corals are nice, but not as nice as the wonderful "Blue Hole" in Dahab.
Absolutely a decent house reef.
