Just left after 13 nights at swiss inn. Nice hotel as it was our 2nd stay . Waiters in restaurant remembered us from 2 years ago ... hotel very quiet, breakfast was nice , have to say waiters a little eager to clear the table as you still eating and they take your plates. Good choice at breakfast pretty much everything except bacon . Dinner on the other hand very dissapointing if you went at 6.30 it was probably fine but at 8 the dishes had been sat in warmers for hour and a half and it was apparent as the quality was bad. Probably if went again would stay bed and breakfast . And get a taxi or bus to maspat a kwik 5 mins away as wide selection of restaurants there to all tastes and very reasonable. Not too much hastle there either. Drinks had gone up massivly at swiss inn £1.50 a bottle water and wine around £17 when you can buy in the local shops for 40p and £2.00 it quiet a mark up. . Beach towels and beds very comfy pool was cold but it still early . I did have nice surprise waiting for me on my birthday though the chef had baked me a cake ..

I stayed here for a week with my husband and brother in order to windsurf at Club Vass. The hotel was extremely quiet so very relaxing but not really a 'party vibe' if that's what you're looking for. There is a cheap (50p/person, 10 minutes) shuttle bus that will take you into Dahab centre where there is a good selection of bars and restaurants.

The three of us are proper foodies and we were really impressed with the food: a huge selection of tasty food every breakfast and supper. If you're on half-board you pay for your drinks on top- about £3 for a beer. Beers in town are £1.50 so head out if you want better value- for example the Club Vass Bar (turn right along the beach and it's the first one you see) is much cheaper.

The grounds are well-kept and the rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel beach is also perfect- and definitely try windsurfing while you're here! Some of the staff were a little grumpy but some were wonderful. This is generally a very good hotel.

we stayed at swiss inn last year and it was fine and cozy.. we made reservation this week and arrived to swiss in today to find a different offer than what we agreed and reserved. though we got confirmation twice about our sea view room reservation, today we traveled to dahab to be surprised that the hotel has no room as reserved and we were asked either to stay in an isolated room close to teh hotel main gate entrance or we stay in a room also isolated but within the hotel itself but with low standard room with old furniture. our vacation was ruined and we left the hotel and started looking for another one though we had our plans set, though we were repeated guests but people at teh reception didn't care much and after we arrived at the hotel they told us that all the seaview section is closed ,,they said that after we traveled all teh way to dahab. unfortunately this is our second bad experience with swiss inn first one was in cairo which i don't recommend at all due to location and very old furniture and style , and in dahab where staff have been so unprofessional.

True Egyptian hospitality combinded with Swiss standarts of food, service and cleanliness in beautiful nature - most advisible for families, singles and everybody who needs to relax or is interested in water sports and swimming in cristal clear water. After only one week we recovered from the stresses of modern life :)

Room Tip: Chose a room with beach/sea view

This was our first time in Egypt and we chose to visit Dahab and had been recommended to stay at the Swiss Inn. From our reception to our leaving all the staff and the manager were just wonderful. The service is very unobtrusive, but always there - polite, helpful, smiling, any issues are sorted immediately - great beach service - Ahmed was the best on the beach - our enjoyment was the top priority of all the staff and without doubt the atmosphere, food and surroundings all helped to make this our top holiday destination.

Room Tip: we chose a sea view room and it was the closest to all facilities without being noisy

It was our second time when we stayed in the hotel. A large beautiful territory, a big beach, plesant beach bar with shisha equipment. There is a strong europian standart of service. You'll not meet obtrusive servants there. As disadvantage I can say about old furniture in rooms. Garden view rooms are more comfortable and modern. There are 2 windserf station and a dive club on the hotel beach. A big warm swimming pool. No animation.

The Swiss inn was a lovely hotel. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. A small problem with the bathroom was fixed straight away. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was great. This was a first diving holiday and we used the Sinai Divers based in the Hilton next door so was all very convenient. The location is quiet and the town is short taxi ride away. The resort itself is pretty quiet too and the night life is very low key. The only criticism is the food where they seemed to want to provide western style meals which weren't that great. When local dishes were on the menu they were pretty good. Didn't really use the extra services offered by the hotel but they seemed comprehensive. Definitely recommended.
