Bottom Line

The Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel is a luxury hotel that makes use of its beachfront setting with leisure activities that focus on families. With a full-service spa, two outdoor pools, dive center, private beach, and international conference center, this property provides it all. The nine restaurants, bars, and a nightclub provide diverse cuisines and entertainment, though most are smoking-friendly which may be a drawback. The 388 stately rooms all have balconies, flat-screen TVs, and minibars (which are free in suites). The biggest downside is that Wi-Fi isn’t free in rooms, unless booked with all-inclusive rates which also include meals. As an alternative, the Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh offers free Wi-Fi and hosts more couples than kids.

Oyster Hotel Review

Steigenberger Aldau Beach Hotel

Scene

Large, all-inclusive beach resort that caters to families

Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel is a large, grand resort that caters to mostly families and couples looking for a Red Sea beachfront vacation. From above, the property looks massive. The buildings, private beach, golf course, and lagoon-style pool cover 61 acres. The design is elegant and stately, as seen in the grand lobby with glossy floors, a cream color scheme, and a well-lit atrium. Seating areas with blue couches and chairs are well-spaced for a private feel. Though there’s a mellow piano player in the lobby during the day, this is still a relatively bustling environment with families with kids moving about at all times. Some of the restaurants are more elegant with white contemporary chairs while others are a bit dated with worn wooden chairs and faded red cushions. Take note that smoking is generally allowed in most spaces, which is common throughout Egypt.
