Sea Sun Hotel Dahab
Ranked #47 of 53 Hotels in Dahab
Reviewed 10 May 2010

Have just got back after staying in Seasun for 10 days, we were very disappointed, it is a real shame as it has the potential to be a really nice hotel nder the right management (which I think they now have thanks to the lovely new manager!)
Our main gripe with the hotel was the terrible food and the slow service of the bar staff, but towards the end of the holiday when the new manager took over, the quality of the food became much better as did the service from the bar staff...
The loation of the hotel is excellent, as we were looking for a chilled holiday it was in a nice secluded quiet location, if you're looking for a lively holiday then you'd be better off staying in sharm, but if you're there to just chill then the hotel's location is just fine...
The staff are all really friendly and I did feel sorry for them for the ignorant and rude way they were spoken to and treated by some guests!!!

To sum up this hotle it has the potenetial to be a really nice hotel, and now that the new manager is there and is trying hard to turn things around, I would urge people to give the place a chance and not to write it off based on the bad reviews on here, as I do genuinely think it will get better...

l totally agree with DeePee review, it could be a beautiful place to stay as the hotel design is good but its so dirty and uncared for my hubby and l were shocked at the standard of hygiene but if the cleaners dont have the correct cleaning materials how can they do their job properly, my hubby and l watched to cleaners cleaning the windows at the front of the hotel balancing on two tables it was like a carry on film ..... the finish of the hotel/rooms is really bad the and the loo leaked and looked as it had been leaking since being put in l did report it but nothing done.
lots of men who were emplyoed by hotel walking around but with no name tags on so everyone unsure who they are... some staff very rude and unhelpful two of the waiters Noor and Omar gave excellent service while there a new manager started work and she approached everyone and asked for their views and new towels appeared for the beach and in rooms. she was promising big changes and l really hope that she makes a sucess of this hotel the snorkelling was fab of the jetty but the beach was a mess, but the manager did make the pool man tidy up a bit (before she got there he did nothing all day besides chatting to all the ladies and playing rude and loud music on the beach but to be fair she put a stop to this straight away ) it was the lovely people that we meet that made this holiday good for us. l was at the bar when the barman said l will make rose wine... drinks very limited only in small glasses not allowed to have bottle of beer and a glass again hygiene washing of glass a real concern for me and H & S plays an important role in my own job, We are lucky did not get upset tummy or bitten but lots of others did ,but we are very careful what we eat to be fair l lived and tomatoes and cue...... flies a problem in the one restaurant the only restaurant to all those who go after us good luck .........l hope that the manager reviews this site and acts quickly on the input given on this site

Sadly I read the reveiws after booking my vacation. Here are some truths about this awful hotel.

1, Yes it does smell, they water the lawn with something theat resembles raw sewage.
2. The food from breakfast, luch and dinner, is possibly the worst quality and selection of food 'i have ever had, ever! They just keep serving up the same awful food over and over and over agin.
3. Every drink to ask for comes warm, they have no ice., and they run out of everything from wine to vodka, their specialality was making rose' with 2/3 white wine and 1/3 red, served warm of course, I mean how else would you want to drink "rose" on a 35 degreee day.
4 Most of the staff can no be bothered doing anything, once again ever.
5. The beach is ugly.
6. The hotel is near nothing, you need to get a taxi if you want to escape and that is a a mission within its self.
7. Toilets generally leak as well as aircon.
8. No wifi in rooms, only in reception which they seem to turn on and off as wtsh.
9. Only 1 restaraunt not three as descibed on site.

The list could go on, so please if you want a heads up do no go here it was the most awful week of my life. This was not only my opinion but everybody elses at the hotel, I just thought I would take a few minutes out of my time, so hopefully no one else will waste there time on this awful establishment.

To end on a good not the massage therepistswhere amazing and so was one staff member called Nore( sounds like more with a n) sadly the three of them alone can not create enough amazingness to dilute the rest of the awfulness.
