When I saw what Red Sea Relax had to offer I immediately changed hotels and spent the next 3 weeks in this excellent hotel. Although room prices were similar, this English owned and run establishment was far superior - particularly with regard to cleanliness, quietness and service - also the fact that the bar prices are the cheapest in Dahab didn't do any harm at all!!!
It also has it's own dive school!!
Situated in the Lighthouse area of Dahab, the location is nothing short of superb. You are not "captured" 4 kilometres away where the far more expensive "all-inclusive" hotels keep their prisoners. You are in the "happening" part of town, and just a promenade width from the sea, (The world famous Lighthouse Coral Reef is all of 100 yards away - isn't that a hardship!!!).
The outdoor bar, on an upper level overlooking the promenade and sea, is the perfect place for a sundowner ( which can turn in to a sun-upper if you're not carefull!!). At night you can see the glimmering lights of Saudi Arabia in the distance. The bar food is very good, and people came in from many outlying hotels to see the big Rugby (and Football) matches. These are featured on a few "big" nights, but not allowed to take over the general relaxed ambiance of the bar.
There are a myriad of reasonably priced restaurants in the immediate area. We particularly enjoyed Blue House Thai Restaurant, Nirvana Indian Restaurant and Il Pescatore. Also, Ralph's German Bakery was great for coffees and subs during the day.
The late clubs are about 10 minutes walk away around the bay - and the fact that breakfasts are served until 11am becomes very relevant if you venture in that direction!!!
Chris, the owner and genial host, supported by Osama, Said and Tariq, and their teams ensure that you have a great stay and I am planning my return already!!
I havn't even mentioned the beautiful pool, and how much fun the weekly quiz night is, how effective (and silent) the air-conditioning was etc etc...
