“Fabulous Relaxing Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

If you're looking for a great value hotel, with a very warm welcome, offering great accommodation, and excellently located for a fabulous relaxing holiday - then The Sea Sun Hotel is for you!
I spent two weeks here in April, in this wonderful friendly hotel. It was simply one of the best holidays I have ever had.

Beautifully located 90 klm north of Sharm, away from the bustle of a big city, lies The Sea Sun Hotel, nestled between the South Sinai mountains, and edged up to the sea. Brilliantly located for snorkelling, and even for diving the famous "Blue Hole" close by.

All the rooms are excellently located around a beautifully clean central swimming pool. My room was excellent - fabulous king-size bed (even for single occupancy). and emaculatley clean, and stacks of clean laundry always. All rooms are " a room with a view", facing the rugged beach where you could glimpse the beautiful site of the camel-trains passing by in the early dawn. It was brilliant!.

The food, served buffet style offered excellent choice; the rooms were all really good.; and the staff wonderful .

No! there's not a lot of entertainment - but that's why I chose it!!.
However, just a "free" shuttle-bus away is the bustling Dahab centre. The hotel staff would arrange anything for you, from Historic outings, to Go-Karting or Belly Dancing.!! You just had to ask. Nothing was to much trouble for this fabulous team of staff.

And , yes,!There are flies and Camels! - what do people expect! But, this is wonderful Egypt at it's best.!!
A really fabulous holiday !!- can't wait to go back!!! :)

Thank you to "all" at The Sea Sun Hotel for making it such a fabulous relaxing holiday!!

Sharon-Marie......Buckinghamshire.

me and my girlfriend have just come back from a 10 night all inclusive stay at this hotel.
after reading some of the terrible reviews we were a little worried about the holiday but we had booked prior to reading these, on arrival that i must admit was very late due to a late flight we were met by very cuteous and friendly staff that booked us in gave us a drink and fed us sandwiches (it was after midnight when we arrived).
after 3 days of some of the best service we had seen in any all inclusive holiday we had been on before, we got talking to bridgette the hotel manager and voiced our concerns at what we thought were very unfounded bad reviews.
we were actually shocked at her honesty when she said sadly most of them were true, bridgette took over the hotel in november and has worked very very hard in turning this hotel around and i am glad to say her hard work has paid off ten fold, this holiday was superb we have never seen such curteous hotel employees from the management to the house boys and nothing is too much trouble (in fact they go beyond the call of duty to make sure you have a great time with them) all i can say is dont judge this hotel off past reviews go and see for yourself and i feel certain you will agree with all i have wrote.
one point i would like to add and this does not concern the hotel directly if you want a spanish type holiday with night clubs loads of markets and ten thousand people to fight your way through this hotel is not for you, if you want excellent service beautiful views of the gulf of aquaba and the sinae montains and relaxation in the sun then this is the place for you. and if you fancy dining out and doing some shopping dahab town is only a short taxi ride away.
thank you bridgette and all your staff for an excellent holiday dave hampson and anne irving

wife and I stayed here for two weeks mid march 2011, and enjoyed our 40th wedding anniversary there, from first arrival bridgit and her staff were exceptional, friendly helpfull and on our evening made us a cake, nothing was requested by us. so cant thank them enough. we were given a suite overlooking the beach, with a jaccuzi, flat screenseen tv etc etc food was good, varied and buffett style
the location of hotel is good for snorkelling access to sea via wooden jetty, amazing coral and sea life. nearby dahab is a good place to visit, easy to get to, mount sinai not far,
after staying for two weeks we moved on to another hotel near taba , the receptionist was good enough to check it out and book the taxi for us, yes we would return , believe me we have stayed in so called 4 star in britain, but the sea sun far exceeds them. great staff we went as guests and left as friends.

Room Tip: all rooms face sea ,two stories.

Being a backpacker I do not expect alot what so ever just a clean bed really. This hotel is supposed to be a holiday resort for families and more of a treat for us. Where can I start.....
1. Rooms weren't ready upon check in and we got there at 9pm so well after check in opens we were waiting an hour almost
2. The toilet did not flush, therefore ever day the cleaner would come in to the built up of our business
3. The sheets were dirty, my pillow had a crusty brown stain on it.
4. Our friends room had the light hanging out the ceiling, big brown stains on the sheets and the room smelt off.
5 when asking to change rooms there was none available until the next day, upon changing the next room no better!
6. There was evening entertainment which being backpackers we are used to but others may not appriciate loud music until 11 pm that can be heard loudly from the room.

The only positive was the food, the chefs there cooked good meals much better then we had expected from the room quality we received!! The facilities were ok also, although I did not go for a swim the free wifi in reception was handy!

I definitely would not recommend toany of my friends, I have stayed in much better hostels then that hotel!!!

Even though our holiday was almost a year ago we are still in the process of legal action against Thomas Cook for selling this shambolic holiday . In almost thirteen years of travel to Egypt( a country we absolutely adore) this was by far the worst experience we have ever had. Do not book this hotel under any circumstances..it is so bad that it gives Egypt a bad name.

INts my third day at the hotel and so far so good. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit worried. The hotel is nice. It's not a UK standard 4 star but it is decent and I would not describe it as faulty towers. The grounds are nice, rooms are good although there is a funny smell in the bathroom but only sometimes, we solved it by closing the bathroom door. There is a nice pool with clean water. Downside is you can't go in to the sea from the beach its full of corals. You have to walk to the jetty which takes 5 minutes. And it is a bit windy at the moment and the sea is rough. If you like piece and quiet than you will enjoy it if your after parties and nightlife than look for a busier place.
