Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Many times in Egypt but first time in Dahab and stayed at an excellent hotel with excellent Staff. The check in process was so simple and was taken straight to my room. The room was so open and spacious. The view from the balcony was so bautiful and so pleasant to wake up to each morning as well for the beautiful sunsets and sunrises I saw. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. I was offered free breakfast on check-in which I unfortunately did not have the time to take up but I am sure would have been excellent. The hotel is at an excellent surrounded by shops and restaurants and easy access to anything you need including a laundry right outside. You don't need to take a car anywhere, everything is pretty much accessible by walk and if a car is needed it is likely to be a very short journey. Osama and Belal the guys at reception were always smiling and friendly and always happy to assist. Thank you for making my stay so pleasant and for all your help. I look forward to seeing you soon on my next visit ☺️

I stayed 2 nights at Penguin Village in Dahab with a couple of my friends early this October, and we can say that the hotel met all expectations and more. Upon our arrival, we were met by friendly Hani who granted us free breakfasts for the time we stayed there, and were given a great room with a breathtaking view over the beach. The location is strategic, close to everything, so anything in central Dahab is accessible on foot, if not, the drive isn't too long. All the staff were helpful, the hotel was clean and comfortable, and the cherry on the top which was the view, was mesmerizing; so overall, a success for what it is!

Penguin Village is quiet, clean, and comfortable. It’s in a very central, convenient location just a short stroll to shops, cafés restaurants etc. The hotel has its own lovely, waterfront restaurant where breakfast (and other meals) are served daily. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and took pride in their roles. Abdo and Said were particularly helpful arranging a variety of excursions for us, which all ran very smoothly. Coming to Dahab and staying at Penguin Village was a perfect end to our Egyptian adventure. The booking process was simple & efficient via WhatsApp, thanks to Abdo. We were here for one week but wished we’d stayed longer. We can highly recommend Penguin Village for your vacation.
