The Seahorse hotel is a simple, but very friendly hotel. It is run by Yesser, who will do anything to make you feel at home. He and his staff soon become good friends. Do not expect the comfort and the (unpersonal) service of a multiple-star hotel, but that is just the charm of this hotel.
Whatever you want, Yesser will arrange it for you and at a much lesser price than the (already very low) Dahab prices. You want dinner? Just let him know what you want to eat and when. He will charge you less for the complete dinner than you would pay for only the ingredients in your country! Wanna cook yourself? No problem, go ahead. You want a quad bike trip? Yesser will arrange it for you for about half the price you will pay at Dahab offices.
In the evening you are always more than welcome to join the group in the patio, around the fireplace. This is where you meet other guests and have a great evening. Bring your own drinks and snacks from the supermarket. One English guest made big bowls of punch just by mixing fruit juices with fresh cut fruit and presenting it in 2 versions: The Arab one without alcohol and one with whiskey and other alcoholic drinks (thank you Roy!!!). A few times the evening was 'blessed' with a guitar-playing man called Chico. He runs on beer.
I had a great time in this hotel. It is located a 10 minutes walk from the centre of Dahab. This makes it very quite, no traffic or other noises from the streets. If you think even that is too far, take a cab for only 10 pounds (1 euro). Everybody in Dahab with a car is a cab-driver. You cannot walk 20 metres without somebody passing by asking: "Taxi?"
I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel and whenever I revisit Dahab again, I will book the Seahorse hotel again.... and visit the friends I made there.
