Dahab is quite different vibe compare to the other part of Egypt. This is the place where it is more relaxing and chill. And accomodation here in Penguin Village is just nice. Even though need to do some improvement regarding to their shared bathroom and toilet. However the room is clean and the place is great, located by the sea...

This hotel is so calm and relax. You can feelling so good when asking for a tastly fish or juice in front of The Beach. The room is simple but have a good breakfest. The service is friendly. It is near To downtow and you can GO there by foot. I recommend !

The staff were very very friendly and helpful.The sea is right in front of the rooms which is great and relaxing. Affordable prices for both the rooms and the cafe -also great setting area in the cafe- and rooms were warm and cosy. Great location. The only negative thing is water fixtures in the bathrooms need maintenance.

I went to enjoy the sea and my holiday but everything was out of order, dirty rooms, no room serves, no wifi (as said) terrible food, always late, and very bad manager. I was very disappointed. Don't book at Penguin Village

The hotel has a really nice view of the sea.. The room service is poor.. Poor water supply to the bathrooms.. The staff are friendly and helpful especially during emergency situations.. I enjoyed my stay there anyways .

The staff are really friendly and the cafe view is amazing. The rooms are not bad but the bathrooms and beds need to be more clean and need maintenance. I spent 6 days and i wished i could spend more time. And for sure one day i will return back.
