My partner and I chose Dive Urge to learn to Scuba Dive after reading the great reviews. I do a lot of travelling for work and sports so I didn't really have any pre-conceived ideas about what to expect. This turned out to have been the perfect place to learn to scuba dive. It wasn't just the new experience of... More

This is the place to go in Dahab: a family run guest house for divers. Personal service from Lynne and Helal, safe and engaging dive instruction from Ahmed, and an atmosphere of unhurried tranquility on a beautiful stretch of beach. Avoid the formulaic hotels of Sharm and you won't be disappointed.

This was our first scuba trip as neither of us had ever dived before. Dive Urge is a fantastic family-run small resort in Dahab and we were made to feel welcome by all the family and staff there from the minute we arrived until we left. The resort has a chilled-out vibe, is clean and the food is great (we... More

Feel very guilty for not writing a review before as we have now stayed at and dived with the Dive Urge team four times before. We have been with our two children and as a couple. We last stayed Oct 2014 and are about to go back fro our 5 visit. It feels like returning to be with old friends... More

Having stayed here before as a solo traveller, I knew what to expect. Its not five star luxury but once you get down to it, its everything you need. If its not, you quickly find that you can just ask. I have not had better service anywhere. I came with a friend this time and the experience was outstanding from... More

Everything other people have written here is spot on. All the staff at Dive Urge can't do enough for you and make you feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you book to when you get dropped off at the airport. The site is kept immaculately clean, the food is great, it's right on the beach with the nearest dive... More

I heard about Dive Urge from a friend who went out with his family and raved about Dive Urge. So I chatted with Lynne via email and organised a week diving. Lynne helped simplify getting through the inbound scrum at Sharm airport, had me collected from the airport, and organised a great week of diving for me. Lynne, Helal and... More

I have never been diving before and chose Dive Urge as the place to complete my Open Water PADI for my 40th. From the moment I spoke to Lynne to enquire before booking our holiday to the follow-up emails I have received since, the team made us feel welcome, cared for and home-from-home.
