Holiday description: 7 nights at the Nesima Resort, with 5 days of diving included
I just wanted to write and say what a fantastic time we had staying in Dahab at the Nesima Resort
We were advised to obtain our visas on arrival and this turned out to be a really good idea, lots of travel desks to choose from, no queues, very quick and easy to do.
This was our first ever visit to Egypt and we weren’t disappointed.
Transfer to Dahab from Sharm airport was ready and waiting for us and it only took just over an hour to reach Dahab. We were delighted when we arrived at the Nesima Resort and were met with such warm and friendly staff, and our room was so quaint and had everything we needed. The location is absolutely unbeatable, the house reef is literally a few feet from the swimming pool. The beginning of March was a great time to visit as it was very quiet and the dive groups very small, although the water was cooler than I’m used to as it was early in the season. Dahab itself has a lovely feel to it and is very relaxing and peaceful. A really relaxing holiday.
We stayed on a B&B basis which was excellent, the choice at breakfast was not very extensive but changed every day and I would say there was something for everyone. The restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. Eating out during the day and evening is very cheap, the quality of the food at the Nesima Resort was so good we ate most of our meals there, although the Ali Baba restaurant a short walk away right on the waterfront was one of our favourite places to eat in the evening, very clean with friendly staff.
The dive centre is first class and all the staff were so friendly, helpful and professional – one of the friendliest dive centres I have ever been to. The diving is first rate, the best dive sites I’ve ever been to, and our dive instructor was fantastic.
We loved staying at the Nesima Resort and are already planning our next visit. I would highly recommend Ultimate Diving and the Nesima Resort hotel.
We saw lots of other hotels and dive centres while we were there, but none looked a patch on the Nesima.
We will definitely travel with Ultimate Diving again, the service we received from Marcelina was first-class.
