    Good family run restaurant

    We stayed 4 night at El Primo, all the rooms have a balcony that faces the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a lot the food for breakfast which was alternate Egyptian breakfast and eggs omelette with fruit salad. We had dinner once at the hotel and we were pleasently surprised. The room was very nice, AC working well, very clean, nice view, also some wire to hang out towels to dry. the shower pressure was not constant but not a big deal. I will definitely come back to Dahab and I'll definitely come back to El Primo

  • 6.0.Good

    部屋はまぁ許容範囲の清潔さですが、ポットやドライヤーなどの設備は当然なく、エジプトでこの値段で、と考えると、かなり高く感じました。また、ツインをリクエストしていたのですが、当日、ダブルしか空いていないと言われました。宿泊人数は少なかったので、そもそものツインルームが少ないのかも。朝食はエジプシャンではなく、パンやフルーツのプレートでした。 全体として、悪くはないですが、良くもなく。スタッフは良い人達でしたが、この高評価はいささか疑問。 そして、朝食時からWiFiが切れ、一帯の電気系統のトラブルで電力が不通に。結局、正午のチェックアウトまでシャワーもトイレも使えず、海に入った後は仕方なく買ってきたボトルウォーターの水をかぶり、夜行バスに乗りました。彼らのせいではないものの、チェックアウトの時間を少し遅らせるとか、もうちょっとホスピタリティがあっても良いのかなと。 アウト後も荷物を置かせてくれたり、トイレを使わせてくれたりはしたので、頼めば何とかなったかもしれませんが。
