From the first enquiry until the moment I left, the Dive Urge team did everything to make my stay in Dahab comfortable, pleasant and generally enjoyable. It is a family run business, and it feels like everyone there is part of the family. The resort is an oasis of calm and peace by the sea, a great place to chill... More

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.'

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
