“worst hotel I've ever stayed in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

I stayed there for one day in October, the rooms were unclean ,the bathroom was rusty including all the taps, the toilet seat was broken and leaks water to the bathroom floor, the food was terrible I ate dinner outside the hotel that night.
no AC remote control and when I requested I got no response till I borrowed one from the room beside me.

beside all that key employees were rude and unfriendly.

really it was the worst stay I've ever experienced.

Room Tip: don't go there unless you wanted to have a really bad time.

we only had to sit for only 1 night as part of a trip and it was on 18 oct. 2013.the problem was with the following:
1. staff is not enough for running a hotel(only 2 for HK, 2 for buffet serving and cleaning... etc)
resulted in:
1.Rooms,towels, lobby,restaurant tables,pool and everything is unclean.
2.service is too slow
3. no maintenance for the rooms as the bathroom door can't be closed.
4. no soap, or shampoo... we got the towels upon request.

We're not the most sensitive family (I went to several archeological expeditions). But now this place is awful.
I hope that this is due to that riots stuff. It's about 10-15 guests in 90 rooms right now.
Seems that because of that there's no food, drinks and hot water.
Personel tries to be nice, but you have to struggle to have a glass of red wine for supper.
Pool is cold and dirty.
No safe sea entrance (you still can use the one in the next hotel).
If you have a choice now - buy just plain tickets and book a hotel in Dahab.

After several holidays in Sharm decided to try Dahab. Sea Sun Hotel looked great as advertised.
Arrived evening 17/9/13.
Very quite to be told only 6 guests in total because most foreign tourist's
had been prevented from travelling due to Egypt's problem.
The few staff present were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us especially Oma and Micky.
Afraid it went downhill from there on. We were shown two rooms to choose neither were great,
Wall light hanging by wires, only one bath towel, half a toilet roll.
All meals we had no choice only what was put in front of us and to be fair they were presented
very well. We understand no chef present.
The pathway leading to the beach had dog foul that had been there sometime also the beach
had dog and apparently camel foul. The sun beds were filthy and hadn't been cleaned for some time.
I'am sure this hotel has seen better times but we were so disappointed with everything that we left for another hotel after 4 days.
I would not recommend Sun Sea it certainly doesn't live up to it's presentation.

Room Tip: Don't go there

Spent two weeks chilling by the swimming pool.Food wasn't five star, but the room was perfect.Free shuttle bus to Dahab was a plus. New manager with a heart of gold and a few laughs.Would I go back and visit again? Of course I would......and so should you.

Room Tip: It's a 40 minute walk to the Blue Hole.Price of food and drink is overboard! Take your own.

I travelled alone to this hotel in late June, 2013 and I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday. The rooms are large and spacious and any problems one had were sorted out straight away. The rooms were cleaned very day to a high standard. The food was a bit repetitive at times but I only failed once to have a meal and I am a fussy eater. The staff are great. The beach is lovely and other guests stated that the snorkelling was great too. The mini bus taking you into town in the night is very handy and it is just enough time to look around. If I returned to Dahab I would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The rooms nearer the beach
