The equivalent of a UK 3 star, but still it's a nice hotel. Go for the room upgrade or you get the ground floor of an out-of-the-way block. Don't expect a view either.
The food is very standard but not poisonous like a lot of other reports would imply for hotels elsewhere in Egypt.
The all-inclusive is not to be recommended. Asking for a beer you'll get a half glass of foam and you're made to feel like you're begging for it. The staff do not like handing it over even though you've paid for it. They keep the rest of the bottle it's been poured from.
The all inclusive consists of local beer (half a glass), local wine (awful) and soft drinks. Cocktails as promised do not exist and spirits were refused to us unless we paid extra. It's in one bar only that no one goes in and also the cafe. I won't call it a restaurant that would imply that it is something that it is not.
The snacks at the beach bar are sandwiches wrapped in cling film and the staff will not be pleased if you ask for them. There is one plate made up in total and the staff are used to taking them home(?).
The beach setup is very nice but as per usual the Germans get there early to try and grab the best spots by leaving their belongings (a book or towel) at a table.
Dahab is pretty good if you windsurf, otherwise there's not much there. The town itself is a dump but interesting.
Take hand-sanitizer and use it frequently, you won't regret it.
