“It's touristy (like Dahab), but cheap, quiet and clean”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

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.

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.
