Reviewed 23 April 2014

The hotel location is excellent,you feel so relaxed in a peaceful location.
hotel itself is good, with some renovation in certain area; will deserve 5 stras.
same problem i fae always in dahab exist in this place which is DOGS..4-5 dogs were enjoying their usual life among the guests on the beach and pool and main restaurant!
hotel pools are excellent are very clean.

We have just returned from our third trip to Happy Life and we are re-booking to go back in October this year. The service cannot be beaten anywhere in the world and we have stayed in some pretty smart hotels over the years. All the staff including the cleaners cannot do enough to help if you need anything they are only to happy to get it for you. The location is superb, great snorkelling and stunning views of the mountains. We did not lift a finger for a week! Thanks to Akram and his team at the bar for going out of his way to collect a bottle of champagne and make a cake for us and in the restaurant Nazmee, Mohammed and the chefs for making such a special effort to celebrate our wedding anniversary, decorated tables and five star service all the way. Our second home - thanks to you all !! - see you in October - Oh just watch out for the Spa staff (they are independent from the hotel btw) sometimes they cannot take no for an answer!

Me and my partner went there for 11 days for his birthday in february and what a great time we had. On his birthday the restaurant staff gave us our own decorated table and gave my partner a cake and they all sung happy birthday to him. The hotel was so relaxing we practically did nothing for 11 days. The staff here are absolutely amazing, they cannot do enough for you, nothing is to much trouble. Every morning within minutes of getting to the beach the staff arrived with our drinks before we even sat down! i really don't know where to start with this review as there is so much to be said. The animation are brilliant who are there all day every day inviting you to play different games and do things like yoga and stretching. We had a brilliant time with them learning there dances and my partner even put on one of my dresses to do the dances with them on our last night as promised on our first night lol. The hotel has 3 pools one of which has 3 water slides which we only ventured into on our last day due to the water being to cold. We did snorkelling too which is a must, its amazing what you see under there. Dahab itself was very quiet but was nice to have a wander around and have some food. The hotel have some dogs walking around who are very friendly and walked us back to our room on a few occasions. The food at Happy Life was amazing with a huge variety to choose from and once again all the restaurant staff was amazing, mohammed, alfie, karim too many to mention. We met the hotel doctor due to a fall i had and what a lovely doctor he was, very friendly and efficient. The security staff and reception staff are very friendly and helpful to its easier just to say EVERYBODY at this hotel are amazing and we cant wait to return, we are already looking to book up to go back in june :) :) :)

Room Tip: The higher rooms are best for the views which are amazing :)

That was our 6th vacation in Sinai and 3d in Dahab, so I had pre-image in my head of what awaits us in 3* hotel… Well, what can I say! Reality exceeded my expectations. All was perfect from the moment our driver and guide greeted us in airport, helped with luggage and transported with much care to the hotel till our departure after 11 days when we got boxes with breakfast at the reception since we had an early flight (we didn’t ask for that beforehand). In previous reviews it had been said enough about good food, nice rooms, clean beach etc. So I want to mention something else that impressed me…
As my work is related to hospitality, I usually notice many little things, which commonly are out of attention, but finally that is what makes vacation pleasant . Procedure of check in was very professional, quick and easy; luggage porter showed us territory and told us about main activities; room, which was spacious and clean was also supplied with all necessary information which is very important (no stupid advertisement though), good linen, new (!) and clean cozy warm blankets as nights were rather cool; new mattresses and towels at beach… Beach itself is clean as camels and horses have definite separated area; security man keeps the beach free from sellers. Shuttle bus goes to Dahab at very convenient time – if u will take it, u will not miss your lunch or dinner, what usually happens in other hotels.
But the most wonderful discovery was staff. All through our stay we felt care and warm friendly attitude. Our great respect to the person, who trained employees of this hotel . No one of them ever crossed the line between friendly attitude and familiarity. No silly jokes at the restaurant: f/ex waiter suddenly grasps and takes off tourist`s plate (sad experience in other egyptian hotels), only respect, care and professionalism.
All the staff worked with enthusiasm, but nevertheless many times during the day we watched Manager appeared precisely in those parts of the hotel, where his presence was necessary to monitor the performance.
Big thanks to all guys in Happy Life Village! You made our holiday unforgettable.

What can you say. This is a Gem in the desert. The staff,the food,the peace and quiet we loved it.
I have been in a lot off countries on holiday and work related,plus three times to Sharm but this place beats the lot. If you are going to Egypt for the first time or have never been outside Sharm, you have to go here. We will not be going anywhere but here in February, the weather is just an extra to a fantastic group of staff. You will not want for anything. If you love snorkelling it's right on your doorstep and there is a scuba centre on site. There is no hassle from the local Bedouin people they invite you to have a tea in there tents right on the sea front,lovely people.
There is also a Health Spa on site which we used every morning for a relaxing massage before relaxing for the rest of the day. Trips into Dahab are free and only take 10min and your bus waits while you shop. So thanks to all the Staff, Mohamed , Samar,Kloud,and all the reception people and we will see you all next February .

Room Tip: They are all well located some straight out onto the lovely gardens and the upper floor rooms either...

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our holiday. Upon arrival we were greeted and given a free room upgrade from a family room to a suite which was very clean and spacious.

Room service was daily and of a very high standard. Spotlessly clean every day.

Food quality was excellent, clean and varied on a daily basis. One meal beef fillet steak and lamb chops were available. Fish night had a variety of very fresh seafood. Lots of yummy options for vegetarians. The restaurant staff couldn't do enough for us. The children looked forward to seeing them. Thank you Kiro, Mohamed, Nasmin, Rimer, Joseph, Alfie and everyone else. The fact that we never ill once says it all really.

The animation team were amazing. Our children didn't want to spend time with mummy and daddy as they loved them. It was like having a new family. Mahy, Maro, Alex and Tifa you were amazing.

Rajey at the beach bar appeared every day with our usual order of refreshments within minutes of us arriving at the beach.

Diving with Lagona divers (on-site) was of an excellent standard. The house coral reef at the jetty was beautiful. Amazing variety of aquatic life even just looking into the water from the surface.

Quad biking with Ibrahim was a highlight. Rode into the mountains and had tea and food with the Bedouins.

My 11yr old daughter fell in love with horse riding and spent many hours with Abdo (Ushof) getting private lessons on his gorgeous Arabian horses. Even went swimming with horses in the lagoon at Dahab.

Felt very safe at Happy Life which was only 5-10 mins from Dahab town on the free shuttle bus or a taxi.

Don't usually holiday in the same place but we are looking at returning next year next despite the current Egyptian revolution. Any trouble definitely has not taken place in Dahab or the Red Sea resorts. Security on the transfers from Sharm airport to Dahab was excellent.

We were all so sad to leave and have made many new friends from Egypt, Georgia, Germany, Poland, Russia and the UK who we have spoken with since returning to the UK.

Thanks again to everyone.

Suitable for those wishing to relax, calm, quiet, with a beautiful reef just off brzegu.Centrum diving and entrance to the sea only from the platform. Excellent cuisine, all dishes fresh and varied. Discreet service, beautiful views, very enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: The hotel rather for lovers of snorkeling and diving, but everyone will find an area for themselves.
