Location is brilliant and thats one of the main reason for staying here. In addition the staff is friendly (though a bit slow sometimes) The breakfast is usually nothing to "crave" for, except if theres any "important" people staying in the hotel. I know they have nice dorms, coz I stayed there the last time. This time around I stayed in a room, and that was perfect! Will choose this place next time around again!

I stayed in the dorm for a week while diving, travelling alone.

Even though I lost my key the very first night and brought down a shower curtain while drying clothes the staff were friendly and helpful from beginning to end.

Everything is spotless and cleaned regularly. One exception being the men's toilet upstairs which could do with a bit of a scrub - but that's being a bit nitpicky. It is a hostel after all.

I'm told there are cheaper diving centres, but the staff were friendly, helpful and great instructors. Considering you get free bed and breakfast if you dive there - and a discount if you book ahead - I'm skeptical that anywhere else is actually as good value all considered.

Breakfast was good enough, even if the fruit was allowed to go a bit stale. And if you ask for a prepared breakfast (say if you're rising early to go on a trip) they will even go to the trouble of peeling a boiled egg for you. You don't get that service in the UK!

Brilliant pool, perfect location right in the centre of things on the strip, Churchill's restaurant has great value food and drink, etc. etc.

Very hard to fault! Would almost certainly return there if I go back.

Room Tip: The dorms have 8 beds, which is about right.

Stayed in the dorms, great value. Watched a lot of football when i wasn't at Yalla Bar laying out with a beer. Staff is courteous and not too overbearing. very laid back atmosphere. Stayed here for a week, and was very easy to make friends as i was travelling solo. The rooftop terrace was excellent.

End of June I went for a 1 week diving holiday to Dahab. As I'm only a beginner diver (advanced with only 9 logged dives) I looked the internet for a nice place to stay with diving shop attached. So I found RSR and I absolutely loved it. The hotel is cosey with friendly staff, the guy's (Osama, Abdo and Said) at reception did everything the could to help me with whatever I needed. The room maybe needs a bit of TLC but you have everything you need, AC, TV, SAFE, Frigde, big bathroom and everything was kept very clean and roomservice made the most fantastique things out of my pillows and towels. Breakfast was simple but very nice as well.
Diving with RSR is also recommendable! I absolutely loved every dive and because it was very calm in Dahab probably due to the electionproblems, it was only me and my guide Achmed. He showed me lot's of beautiful things and took me to the most wonderful diviesites of which I loved Ilands and Canyon the most because it gave me a bit of a Lara Croft feeling. Even getting there with a jeep is a bit of an adventure, felt like a femal TinTin on expedition in Egypt. The diving is done with very good and well kept material, you can use a locker and you have the posibility to rinse all your gear at the shop!!! very easy and handy. Paul, a Scotsman who runs the shop is a very nice and chearfull chap has a lovely wife and pretty daughter, is always there to help you or to give you advice and because he loves his music, there is always a good admosfhere around the shop. I did a nightdive as well right in front of the hotel at Lighthouse and I saw the most amasing things, even snorkeling at that site is amasing!
I took the taxi to and fro from the hotel and the 28euros I payed, was worth it. Other guests took a taxi at the airport and ended paying more, so don't bother. They were waiting for me, I got in the car immediatly without any hassle and were driven to RSR at once.
Eating in Dabah is not a problem either! I ate at SHARK and loved the food and people there!!! Very good restaurant! I also enjoyed wonderfull curries at Nivana (Indian) and Blue Heaven (thai ). The restaurants aren't expensive so that was excellent as well.
As a woman on my own I loved my week at Dahab. I'm looking forward to a next visit and will hopefully return to RSR hotel and divingshop soon!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on groundfloor around the pool, close to diveshop and beachpromanade

I must say Red Sea Relax is one of the most lovely places to stay, dive and play!
 
My partner and i have recently got back from a week stay in what could well be Dahab's best hotel. The place is an all round pleasure to stay at. From the friendly welcome to the towels in the room they have everything right. 
 
The staff at both Red Sea Relax, the attached bar (Churchills) and the Dive centre were all extremely helpful and very friendly. The guys who man the front desk 24 hours a day were always very helpful and willing to do whatever they can to keep you happy. They organised our taxi's too and from the airport with a reputable local driver, provided us with all of the relavent info upon check in even though it was very late at night, offered advice on things to do & see, which local shops/restaurants to use and which to avoid, and even helped us search for my passport when i'd lost it and was in a last minute panic.
 
Breakfast is simple but wholesome with something on offer to cater for most tastes, i'd recommend the made to order pancakes and omelets. My better half now has an addiction to chocolate & banana pancakes.
 
The Pool is well set out within the hotels courtyard offering shelter from the wind when it gets blowy and a mixture of nice sunny spots and shady spots for afternoon lounging.
 
I made one visit to the Gym and Steam room and although i only used the steam room the gym looks pretty well equipped.
 
Our room was well laid out with a proper double bed, not just two pushed together and had all mod cons including tv, air con. The room had big double doors onto the balcony, which has been cleverly designed to be in the shade most of the day meaning that the room stayed cool and the air condition never even needed to be turned on. With a view over the pool and out to the promenade and sea beyond, it was lovely to sit out there of an evening and people watch.
 
The Bar in the hotel is one of if not the cheapest in dahab but also the friendliest, based on our experience the bar is busy enough of an evening to have a nice atmosphere. Frequented by both hotel guests and mostly english speaking ex-pats and locals, there is an eclectic mix of people and not once was i in there when i didn't end up having a random conversation with someone at the bar. Not something you see much back here in the UK and it gives the place a real homely vibe. There is a big terrace outside overlooking the promenade and out onto the sea, which was good for seeing the phenomenal sunsets and watching the world go by. I'm told they do very good value food as well.
 
The dive centre staff were very helpful and experienced, this seems to be one of the more reputable and reasonably priced dive centres in Dahab. With the beautiful coral just feet away if your staying here diving is a must and even if your not staying at red sea relax but just want a reliable trustworthy and well priced dive centre this is the place to go. There are so many dive centres in Dahab that vary wildly in quality it seems very easy to get ripped off.
 
The hotel is well positioned within Dahab it's literally feet away from the sea and promenade. The promenade has loads of shops, restaurants, bars and people offering a range of trips, excursions and other fun things.
 
All in all i had a wonderful time, and would definately go back again.
