It is simply dangerous to be on the streets of a Bedouin village
Everywhere some drunken (or not only) strange-looking individuals. There are rotting heaps of garbage on the streets, a lot of corpses of stray animals: cats, dogs and livestock. There are several fish restaurants: they look beautiful, young people from different countries often gather there, but we never went there, it was very unpleasant for me to be in the city. On wild beaches and wastelands near the city, some events and festivals very often take place, but obviously unauthorized, just spontaneous. Screams and music until the morning, the sounds of revving cars, squeals, fireworks at 4 am. I can imagine how much garbage remains after these parties, and all this is carried by the wind around the district.
Of the beautiful views, only mountains
But against the backdrop of all the horror that is happening, somehow they are not up to it. The blue hole adds to the negative: this is not a landmark, but a divers' graveyard. God, why so many people died there, it's incomprehensible! It’s one thing to hear about this place, it’s another thing to see hundreds of commemorative plaques with people’s names with your own eyes. If this place is so dangerous, why not take control of it? Make a higher price for dives in order to pay for the services of lifeguards, regulatory authorities.1/1
The Tropitel Dahab Oasis 4 * hotel is not bad, even very good by Egyptian standards, but not for a beach holiday. The entrance to the sea is stones, the swim is only from the pontoon, there is no pier. The beach is constantly crowded with strange people, tourists from other hotels, sellers, camels.
The rooms are not killed, spacious, the territory is well-groomed, the pools are clean. No queues at bars and restaurants. Food quality is good, great choice, everything is fresh, new cutlery, service is fast. The portions are huge, for snacks by the pool they give tortillas with meat, burgers, barbecue wings. Alcohol of good quality, there was canned beer, good canned champagne and Martini in original packaging. A good massage parlor, you can choose a male or female masseur. One massage is not worth taking: expensive. Take a course of 5 sessions – and the price is good, and you will really feel the effect. 1/1
The hotel staff is polite, they don't ask for tips, they don't make eyes at everyone. The room is cleaned well, there are a lot of towels, beach towels can be changed often, there are no cards, take it at any time.
If you are brought to Dahab, then Tropitel Dahab Oasis 4 * is a good option, but in general the resort is very much for everyone. I don't understand how people call this place fabulous.
