Well, what a holiday! Our family trip to Dive Urge was just awesome. Not just the diving - certainly some of the best I have ever experienced having dived all around the world - but the welcome from all the staff, the quality of room and food, dive guides who really knew their stuff and could not have done more...

Thank you Mark, for your lovely review and the fact that you have already booked to come back, which speaks volumes...and as for the FCO, love your comments: 'Whatever the UK FCO may suggest, Dahab is a safe place.' One of the best mountain dinners, ever, meteorite shower and live guitar WOW! More

We were well looked-after throughout. Mamdoo, our dive guide, made sure we went to all the best local dive sites and got our daughter Daisy through her PADI Rescue Diver course. All our needs were well catered for, whether food (great dips & pancakes), drinks (fresh mango juice), laundry, cleaning or finding keys (thanks Naseemi). The dive staff and drivers... More

Thanks for your comments, we love seeing everyone enjoy themselves and look forward to seeing you all in October your comments on the redundant FCO advice is spot on: FCO advice seems somewhat arbitrary and we had no cause for concern. Congratulations also to Daisy on becoming a PADI Rescue Diver, well done! More

We always have a great time with Lynne and family. A great family hotel with wonderful staff and restaurant. We always meet great people there too. My son did his underwater photography Padi course too which has yielded some great photos!

My mum and I did our PADI Open Water at Dive Urge. I had a great time! The room that we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious with a sea view and air conditioning - which was a relief! I loved playing pool in the magnificent round ceiling room with the ancient ornate lamp hanging from the roof. The... More

Dive Urge could not be more different from the huge, impersonal, never-leave-the-compound, all-inclusives at Sharm El Sheik. We knew we were in for something special when wonderful Assistant Manager Coco went out to the shops to buy us the tonic for our duty free gin within minutes of our arrival. The fact that we knew all the staff by name... More

me and my son Philip (nearly 15) chose Dive Urge because Philip wanted to do PADI Advanced Open Water and I wanted to make sure about safety and low numbers.

Our 5th visit in under 3 years says it all... we just love Dahab & Dive Urge! don't be put off by Foreign Office advice or anything else. It's perfectly safe & super relaxed. I'm a diver & my wife isn't but we both enjoy our time here. Staff & owners super friendly & nothing too much trouble. Recommend 100%.
