The hotel is clean, tidy and is peaceful and quiet. There is good and easy access to the reef, which is beautiful for both diving and snorkelling and you're within walking distance of the Canyon and Ricks Reef dive/snorkel spots and a longer walk to the Blue Hole. Location wise it's perfect - quiet - no planes going over head, no traffic noise, no hassle from people selling things. It's not the place for people who like to have massive entertainment things on an evening - but there is a shuttle bus into dahab if you did want to have more lively evenings. We tended to play cards, drink and chat with friends - and then ventured in to Dahab when we wanted to eat out/change of venue.
The food was good, well prepared and presented, it was a buffet so you knew what to expect, chicken, beef, fish, rice, potato, veggies, salad at every meal time. But they offered a make your own pasta chef station - if you didn't fancy anything on the dinner plate. The all inclusive was good too - drinks were in reasonable sized (half pint glasses) and the beer was always cold (which is important) which ever bar youhad your drink from - they also had diet drinks - diet pepsi, slimline tonic. The hotel offer packed lunches as well - so if you're out for the day it's handy to do that.
In Dahab itself - I'd recommend trying a chicken roll from Nirvana - they are amazing! There's a great taxi driver called Sem Sem - spot him - he has a hat & hovers around the Ghazala Bazaar - which is a good supermarket to buy bits and bobs from.
Basically, Dahab is a diving and chill out place - it doesn't (thank the Lord) have a McDonalds - there's a great selection of restaurants, all along the seafront and plenty to keep you occupied under the water. We LOVED it!
