My sister and I have just spent a very enjoyable and relaxing week at this lovely little hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the beach and sea. Emily, the manager was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Hany, the chef always cooked delicious meals and the breakfast was superb. The hotel is a located in a quieter area of dahab and is only a short 10 min walk away from the main area of restaurants and bars. I could have spent many more days relaxing on the beduoin cushions with a book and hopefully will again some day!

This is beautiful little hotel on the beachfront, where you can relax by day looking out over the pink sky, sea and mountains from the comfort of Beduoin style cushions. Emily the owner/Manager loves her job and it shows! The welcome is so warm and friendly, but never fussed. Heini is the chef and he cooks simple, fresh healthy food with love - everything is delicious! I cannot praise Emily's place (as the hotel was affectionately known to us!) enough, and sincerely recommend a stay here as the perfect relaxing holiday!

Small, clean, very friendly hotel on the beach (which, by the way, is not real beach) with a great view with a great owner/menager-Emily. Close to reef snorkeling at Eel Garden, not so close to the mess of shops and restaurants. Dahab was perfectly safe and friendly, if you don't mind the roaming homeless dogs.

I spent a fantastic week here with my family (three small kids). Emily, the owner manager and Heini, the cook, were great hosts! The rooms are cosy with a nice balcony offering the perfect sea view. The food is great. I warmly recommend this place!

Friendly and personal experience with an amazing beach setting and location.
One is able to walk out and snorkel Eel Garden reef area which was wonderful.
Great part of Dahab and only 5 minutes walk to the hub hub of resturants and shops.
Village located a few minutes walk behind the hotel a great source of local restaurants and experiences away from the tourist center of Dahab.
Hotel able to arrange local trips and transfers easily and they have plenty of helpful advice.
Would return and recommend this destination to others.

There was no refrigerator, and the promised breakfast in the morning never happened-- so I had to scramble on the way to the next stop on my tour of Egypt... but other than that it was perfectly reasonable, well-maintained and very close to the sea/excellent diving... Nice, simple homey decor. Would recommend it to friends who are low-maintenance travelers. Friendly staff.

El Primo Hotel D, Manager at El Primo Hotel Dahab, responded to this review, 22 November 2012
Dear guest, we always appreciate our guests feedback a lot, because it helps us to improve and increase the service for our guests. We are a little and familiar Hotel and we also know that breakfast is one of the the most appreciated service in our house. As the german manager I make sure breakfast is always delivered to our guests and therefore I can not take your comment about the breakfast in consideration. We always serve breakfast even after our regular breakfast times and this is highly appreciated by all our guests.

Kind regards
