My fiance and i have just returned from a lovely 2 week all inclusive stay at this stunning hotel. The staff are amazing 3 individuals truly made our stay animation team Javier and Martina and bar manager Mohamed all 3 treated us more as friends then guests in the hotel. Within the hotel the only let down was the food was not to the standard expected from two professional chefs. We went on a few excursions including the VIP cruse, quad biking and scuba diving everything was amazing really recommend.

Two week stay at end of Feb 2013 with family. Two connecting rooms (2102 & 3) both large, one with twins (2) and one with a double (3).
This was our 4th year in Taba but 1st at this hotel, we knew what to expect as we took time out last year to have a look at the hotels in the area on a cloudy day and picked this to come to next due to the staff reception including welcome drinks we got given and the facilities we were shown.
Subsequently the holiday did not let us down.
The hotel is about a 40 min walk from the large complex of hotels at Taba Heights but that is fine if all you want is a sun/pool holiday as everything is in the hotel grounds.
From the moment we arrived, more welcome drinks, to the minute we left the staff did their utmost to keep us happy and fed and watered. All the staff are excellent and go out of their way for you. Special mentions go to the following staff who should all be put up for employee of the month:
Mahmoud - Reception
Mohamed (with new baby) - Restaurant Waiter
Kamal - Maitre d'
There was only one thing wrong this year and that was the Animation Team (AT) who were exceedingly poor, did not bother with you much if you were not Italian, and who did not bother to organise any daytime activities and the evening shows they put on were an embarrasment. However, if you are not bothered about this it does not detract from your holiday - it just does not add anything and having been at other hotels where the AT can add so much fun it is a shame.
The professional shows, which there were 3 of during each week, were excellent, just a shame that the AT did not introduce or thank them - ignorant!
The beds around the pool are not very comfortable but the ones on the beach make up for this as they are super with large matresses.
The rooms are clean and linen changed regularly.
There were 2 disabled in our group so the fact that the hotel has lifts was greatly appreciated.
Management were always seen doing the rounds checking up on anything and whenever something went wrong like the TV went blank Engineering were down within 10 minutes.
The hotel was quiet but this is the same all over Egypt since the revolution.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday as there is none of the awful big screen TV football etc.

Room Tip: I usually ask for a ground floor room due to disability but there is a lift (elevator) so each floor...

my wife and i have just returned from two weeks all inclusive stay at the Swiss inn from the 12Th - 26Th Feb 2013, here's are story, We arrived at around 21.15 after an hours delay at Manchester, 1st impression very clean & tidy, we were met with a nice cool & refreshing cocktail, we duly booked in & told to leave our cases in the lobby, & go to the restaurant for some dinner, although the restaurant closes at 22.00 there was still plenty of hot food available, the staff in the restaurant were very friendly & helpful, once fed & watered we went to our room, once inside WOW, what a room, Spotless, fresh & clean,The Bathroom was well equipped with a massive shower, sink, hairdryer, & plenty of towels, The main bedroom was huge, There was a queen size bed, one of the biggest I've ever seen, plenty of storage, T.V. Fridge, Sofa, large coffee table, & a great size balcony, we had a pool view, with a partial sea view, all in all a great start to our holiday, The next 14 days were magic, we went for a quiet relaxing break to charge are batteries, which we duly did, The hotel was clean & tidy ( all the time ) the staff were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, the hotel grounds were well set out, the pools were great, the restaurant great, & the staff in the restaurant were so quick to clean your table, refresh your drink, if there wasn't anything on the menu you liked, ask any waiter or chef, & they will get it for you, It wasn't to busy when we were there, but it didn't drop the standard of service, The beach was very large, with lovely beds with really thick mattress, & wind breaks to keep the breeze of you, there are stones & some large boulders to walk over to get into the sea, but once you've passed these, the red sea is lovely, & not forgetting the fly, this is a problem all over Egypt, & not just Taba.
Here are just a few staff names that treated us like royalty, Bar manager...Mohamed...Resturaunt manager....Kamal....resturaunt waiter....Mohamed.
We would definitely go back to this hotel, We can't understand people that criticize this hotel, all we can suggest is you need to get out more

Room Tip: take some diving shoes, or somthing just to get you into the sea.

This hotel is not far off being very good 5*, the staff are amazing, Kemel is the best, to be fair the whole staff training and being attentive is 5*, the rooms and hotel grounds again very good. pool and beach again top quality.

Now my winges:-

Entertainment - non existant, and the animation team are nice people, but there shows are dreadfull, a farting shark, OMG so embarrassing, and it got no better.

Food - Poor. if you like over cooked fish in a bag, of borned chicken there you will be ok, but all in all 2*

Staff restuarant - oh yes the staff eat in the restuarant with you, not an issue, buty when they get there food before you and have not qued gets a bit irritating.

FLYS FLYS AND MORE FLYS - Every where, even in the bars and restuarants.

I did enjoy the break, and met some nice people, but I would not go back

Room Tip: Go for an upgrade, well worth it

Nice quiet relaxing holiday, the biggest most comfy bed I've ever slept in.
The Entertainment team were very good, always willing to have a laugh, but never in your face.
I recomend the snorkeling with thompson the dive master was superb catching puffer fish to show us, also stopping and naming the fish for us.
The Hotel was very clean the staff couldn't do enough for us.

Here we are at the Swiss Inn Dream resort Taba. We came for my husbands 50th birthday. Everything and more than we expected. We landed in the Sinai desert and what you have to expect is the solitary location which is perfect for un winding

Lets start with rooms, immaculately clean and fantastic views. We initially spent 2 days in the standard but up graded to superior to get un limited wi fi. Staying in room 2110 our room attendant always leaves special touches, do not know how he does towel sculptures but each day they are amazing

The restaurant staff cannot do enough for you, special mention to Monsieur le Chef who always asked for feedback about the food, Kemal and Nabil who have been extremely helpful. Surprising to see management do not eat from the buffet, must be a perk of the job!!

We have eaten in al a carte restaurant the last 2 night, what it lacks in ambience is more than made up wit.h the class of food served looking forward to tonight's meal. Lobby bar is ideal place to catch up with new friends, pity the espresso coffee machine is not used for serving coffee and only used to serve Hot Chocolate did ask the management about this and they said coffee was available at a charge. Nescafé sachets readily available to the left oft the bar!!!

Would we come back - most definitely, even though the flies can be annoying

Room Tip: Superior rooms with Super King size beds, flat screen tv and seating area, delightful

Our perception of the stay in the Swiss Inn Dream Resort Taba is a little bit ambiguous.
The hotel, the garden, the swimming pool, it is all very nice and clean. Staff is very kind and service is quite ok. Also the "house-rif" in front of the hotel is very nice for diving. Just walk into the sea and put your head into the water and wathc underwater fauna and flora. Beautifull.
However, some hotelguests (unfortunately not a minority) apply the all-in formula to the extreem when it comes up to alcohol consumption demonstrating a extreem negative impact on their behavior.
Since this experience, before making my reservations, I obtain information on the nationalities visiting the hotel I want ot book.
