“Very good value for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Very well managed resort, top amongst Red Sea beach hotels!
Extraordinarily attentive and friendly staff.
Rooms are sufficiently spacious and well maintained but will need refurbishment on a medium term time scale.
Food was ok and various (I liked the Egyptian food more than the international one).
Large restaurant terrace and very appealing beach bar. Nice swimming pool and pool area.
Inevitable background music in restaurant and bar is very well tempered and not at all annoying like in some other (Egyptian) hotels - even during the week before Xmas, when other hotels punish their guests by playing the same poorly made Xmas-CD loudly over and over again, this is not the case at Dahab Swiss Inn!.

Recommendation for all inclusive.

If there is anything to improve then I would propose to serve espresso coffee for breakfast (only filter coffee available) and to serve freshly sqeezed orange juice or at least 100% orange juice for breakfast.

Harry Nass Windsurfing station (excellent!) is just a 5min walk on the beach.

Very satisfied, will return again.

It was very good,nice place in the middle of Lagoone!very nice service!for sure the best hotel in Lagoon and Dahab too!good speed Internet,but you have to check in too often((I think that a small reefs in the sea near the beach of Swiss inn are the best in lagoon and its good if you also like snorkling...a lot of windsurf stations are situated near Swiss inn,so it means that location is very good...but diving is no good in Lagoone and it is better and chipper to go Dahab to have a dives where...the price will be different about 50 percents...my wife has visited spa there...and not all stuffs are good and price is rather expensive...it's more than Thai massage in European spa((( but anyway,I want to thank all stuff of Swiss Inn for a good job)))and remember:only you can make your holidays well done)))))

We had a fantastic 10 days at the Swiss Inn, Dahab. Great hotel, food, beach, kids club and weather for December. Probably the best hotel in the area.

As a warning to all, my Wife made the mistake of leaving her mobile phone on the side cabinet in the room and not locking it in the safe before we headed off to town for dinner, and upon our return it was missing. After thoroughly checking our room the next morning and still not finding it, we reported the loss to the hotel. Whilst I went off to the Police Station to get a report, my Wife had a visit to our room by Head of House Keeping and Head of Security who accused her of losing the handset in town, and then proceeded to search all of our luggage!.. Back in the UK, I took the time to write to the General Manager to detail the chain of events from our side, but received a very disappointing email by return still taking the position that we were making this up. So take note of our experience and lock everything up!

Room Tip: We had a room near the pool and kids club, which worked very well.

In this beautiful resort we recover for many years. We spend our holidays several times, up to four times a year, at this beautiful place. The hotel is ideally located for holidaymakers but also for guests who want to play sports. While it is getting on in years, but you upgraded from this year the rooms. We wish you much success! We also hope that not make this year more airlines and tour operators new guests and many return guests who travel here to continue heavier. The pearl in the bay, Swiss Inn Resort Dahab is to be preserved guests! Thanks also this time to the whole team for the exellent service and friendliness! Treat yourself to holidays in the Swiss Inn Resort Dahab!

Room Tip: Please ask when booking for a renovated room with a sea view! By the way: 1. Let no flight over Is...

We are an Italian/American young couple and we went to this wonderful resort during the last days of December 2013. The resort it is a small paradise on the lagoon of Dahab. Everything was excellent: great location, really good food, clean, well organized. The room was really big and clean and the staff was always available and helpful. Really great internet connection in the room and also really good on the beach. The coral reef is not on the lagoon but you can always go for a short trip with a boat. The only complaint was the pushy massage people in the tent on the beach even though the quality of the massage was ok. We'll definitely be back as soon as possible. We strongly recommend this place!!!

I have been in the Swiss Inn for the first time this year during Xmas week. Food was ok and various (please cook more Egyptian food than European one) and staff friendly. I have really appreciated the relaxing atmosphere of the resort. Also Spa was ok.. I recommend massage on the beach. We were the only Italians among Germans and Austrians (also another good point :))). If you like to do sport there are many opportunities (windsurf, kitesurf, diving). Special thanks to Extra Divers staff for the diving and excellent organization.

Just got back from another great pre Xmas ten day holiday at the Swiss Inn. With all the bad news flooding the news I was expecting a war zone! ....but Dahab is just as it always was...quiet, tranquil, windy and sunny. Swiss Inn was amazing as always. Really friendly staff and excellent service. Family room was large and spotless. Kids club with Sawsan was excellent. She had a genuine love for children and they didn't want to leave. Food at this hotel is excellent and varied. We were staying with two other families also with young kids and none of us got ill from food. That's quite an achievement in Egypt in my experience of travelling there.
So.....to cut to the chase....if you are going to Egypt, with or without kids, and you want an excellent hotel that is not in grotty Sharm el Sheikh with loads of pissed Russians on all inclusive packages, I can highly recommend the Swiss Inn, Dahab. Tried and tested... Loads to do, beautiful views, and an interesting town of Masbat up the road. If windsurfing, hire from Planet Allsports or Dahab Extreme. Both excellent and reasonably priced.
Don't worry about political situation too much. There's plenty of conflict worldwide if you look hard enough....including our own 'Green & pleasant land'... We didn't notice much difference to 5 years ago, and we have been going to Dahab every December for the last 15 years. A few more security checks on the main toads, but that's about it. Not a bad thing! You are more likely to be mugged, shot or kidnapped in London or Manchester IMO! We booked with Fleetway travel who were excellent again. Transfers were with A2B transfers who were ok, but not exceptional.
Great exchange rates a the moment, not too any people, less busy on the water (windsurfing / diving) and a buyers market when shopping. A good time to go IMO.

Room Tip: Family seaside rooms nice. Near pool, beach, kids club .
