The Red Sea Relax is just what the doctor prescribes when you consider that Dahab is a tourist (!) destination.
The rooms are a nice mix of family suites, doubles and dorms. Add the diving school and one of the cheapest bars in town to it and you get a nice mix of expats and customers hanging out at the Red Sea Relax.
Because doubles were simply too expensive (along the lines of 40 USD a night) we stayed in a dorm (six beds). But it turned out to be like a private as no other travellers joined us and at least the ladies' bathroom was also not used by anyone else on the floor.
The room was clean enough (there was cleaning during our stay), with an alright aircon and quiet even though it was above the pool. The only problems we encountered were the windows that wouldn't close properly and therefore let all the cold air out, and the condensation water which frequently flooded the hall outside our room.
The bathroom wasn't the cleanest but it was alright, too.
The breakfast boasted a nice selection of hot and local fare as well as muesli and the choice of one pancake. Free tea and coffee as well as water is available all day.
The bar also serves decent hot meals. For local dinners you should, however, leave the hotel and the waterfront and enjoy the local food at one of the eateries in town.
There is free WiFi and free computers at reception.
The service is good: you can borrow games from them and if you want to can also book tours (snorkeling, climbing Mt. Sinai etc.) through them.
For tours, however, I would suggest going to one of the tour offices on the waterfront (we went with King Tours). That's usually a fair bit cheaper. And the tours are the same you get through your hotel.
