“Fantastic service”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stayed here last week after moving from a not very nice hotel further south & cannot praise the staff highly enough, especially Abdul who went out of his way to accommodate us at short notice as well as provide assistance for on onward travel & put us in touch with an excellent driver (Bassim) for our stay in Cairo.

Room Tip: Not really a downside for us but it is worth mentioning that it has a rather lively bar attached so...

Stayed for four nights here whilst on a diving trip. We didnt dive here but those who did seemed to say good things. The location of the hotel is fantastic, being as close to the lighthouse as you can get. The rooms were spacious enough and fairly clean. The pool was also clean and a nice relaxant at at the end of a long day of diving. We've stayed in a couple other places in Dahab, but for the price you pay and for Dahabs standards, you really can't get much better than Red Sea Relax.

My wife and I stayed at the Red Sea Relax for 11 days and had a fabulous stay. Virtually everything about it was great.
We had a very nice room overlooking the pool and it was great value, very clean and quiet (the call-to-prayers from the local mosque at 5.30am every morning not withstanding!) The bathroom could have done with a shelf or 2 to put your things but apart from that was fine.
The staff, without exception, were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. A big thanks to Said and Osama on the desk for all their advice and assistance, and Tariq, Alex and Fati (sp?) in the bar (Churchill's Bar & Grill, which was the liveliest bar in Dahab) who were really welcoming and friendly. Also Paul in the dive centre who, although we weren't diving, was great for advice and lent me some fins for the last couple of days when mine 'died' (good luck with the instructor's course, Paul).
Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean and breakfast was good.
The location was perfect, situated a few yards from the beach in the 'busiest' bit of Dahab. Busy is a huge exaggeration as, unfortunately, the adverse media coverage of events in Egypt over the past couple of years has led to a huge decline in people travelling to the Red Sea. Once you move away from the main drag, up or down the shore, the restaurants and hotels were as good as deserted.
Unlike most of the visitors to Dahab, we were only snorkelling but this was not a problem as there are fantastic places to snorkel - right outside the hotel, walking distance away or a short (and cheap) cab ride away. The water was cold but very clear with great coral and fish life - do the Lighthouse (next door) the Islands, 3 Pools, Napoleon Reef, the Canyons and the drift snorkel to the Blue Hole.
All the restaurants along the strip were decent value and provided very good food - Ali Baba was our favourite - but good food could also be found off the main strip in the backstreets at very cheap prices. (You get used to the hassling from the restaurant owners and shops very quickly - just don't say "maybe" which they seem to view as a promise! And yes, the cats in the restaurants are a bit of a pain but mostly relatively 'hands-off'!
We very much hope any current restrictions in the Sinai area do not last long or cause any major problems for the businesses and residents of Dahab and we look forward to returning as soon as we can. If you are going to the Red Sea, do yourself a favour and go to Dahab and the Red Sea Relax Resort.
Many thanks again - Andrew & Hilary

Stayed for a week using a voucher. The rooms are really nice and clean, the breakfast is good (they'll even make you pancakes), decent wifi connection and the location on the sea front is really nice. Dive centre is really professional and great value for money, the red sea is a beautiful place to dive. Hotel staff were incredibly helpful (especially when I was ill) and happy to sort out anything you want to do. Lots to see and do in Dahab if you're around for a week or two.

Had a great stay and time diving here.

As a young student backpacker it was an excellent deal. If you dive each day accommodation in the dorm is free including breakfast and access to a nearby gym. Diving is so cheap at 15 euros eah dive and the local sites are very high quality. Diving off the beach is so easy and carefree.

Mohsen (the 'black Jesus') leads the dive centre was great and a lot of fun to be around. He took me on some excellent dives and was even able to help me fine tune some of my diving techniques. When Mohsen wasn't available he had 2 other excellent and very professional divemasters to take us out (Paul and Omar). They too were also both great to dive, chat and hang out with.

The dive centre was very well run by Steve and the resort staff were always on hand to help you out when needed.

Lastly and probably most importantly I should add that Dahab is COMPLETELY SAFE to travel to. It is a long way from the issues in Cairo and you can fly cheaply and easily to Sharm El Sheikh and get a transfer to Dahab. Don't believe the western media hype and come and pay the Red Sea, Dahab and the Sinai area a visit!

Red Sea Relax is great as a solo traveler / backpacker because of cheap, high quality diving and is a good place to meet people and / or diving.

Stayed 1 night in private room and several in free dorm (free with diving). Tight bathroom in private room but very clean, staff was great, very helpful, really good buffet breakfast, wifi, location couldn't be better! Easily one of the best places to stay in Dahab, and probably the best place I stayed in egypt! If I were to make one complaint it would be the freezing cold pool!

Planned a few days in Dahab last minute and found Red Sea Relax along the busiest area of the boardwalk. Room on the main floor was comfortable enough for 2-3 people and clean. Quiet and dark for sleeping despite busy location. Large bathroom with tub. Mini refrigerator for snacks and leftovers as long as we were in the room to turn the electricity on. Beautiful pool that would have been nice in warmer weather. Across from Yalla Bar where we had the best meals. Staff helped us book horseback riding and taxis easily and affordably. Included breakfast was basic but filling.

If you're into luxury, stay at one of the larger resorts. If you want to eat out and be a part of the local bustle, stay along the boardwalk, and the Red Sea Relax is a great option!

Room Tip: Our room at the front of the complex was quiet and dark. Not sure you can go wrong, but I bet the up...
