I stayed twice with different dates there and I enjoyed everything about it, Sea view is amazing, staff are friendly, with very reasonable price. I didn't try the food there to judge but other than that everything was enjoyable even walking to the shops.

Second time for me there.. Though it's not perfect in everything, I think it has the best sea-view in the town. the location is great; Calm, cozy and easily reachable at the same time!! They have a variety of accomodation choices for reasonable prices. You should try this place, you'll never regret.

The best thing about penguin village in my opinion is the friendly staff, thanks to Tito, Mido, Heiya and the rest. I think the location is perfect - away from the busiest part of town but not too far to walk to shops and restaurants. The rooms are cheap, clean and easily worth the money. I've stayed in a lot...

Penguin is along way from the good shops and cafes. I did not enjoy having to walk through the market everyday and been hassle. Rooms are are run down. Water taste like salt. It doesn't look like the pictures anymore. It's has age a lot . There are better places in town

Penguin has large comfortable rooms with balconies overlooking the beautiful Red Sea at a great price. If you want to pay less there are cheaper options. Connected to the hotel is a nice diving center with very reasonable prices and professional staff. By the way, this part of Egypt is completely safe and chilled-out. Go for Dahab instead of Sharm...
