Stayed for 3 nights and loved the place. Beverley and her team deserve an applause for their warmth and friendly attitude. If you are looking to be next to all sea bound activities and not break the bank , this is the place .

I originally planned on doing one week holiday next to the hotel pool as travelling on my own. Decided prior to holiday that I would complete my Open Water Referral, so I could see what scuba diving was all about, as so many of my friends had informed me if you go to Sharm - you have to dive!

We really didn't want to go to Sharm, but was informed a week before departure we could not travel to our chosen destination due to FCO restrictions. Reluctantly we made inquiries about diving in Sharm and contacted a couple of centers based on their TripAdvisor review. We eventually chose Umbi because of their efficiency in getting back to us and... More

We stayed at Umbi the first week of March - our second visit to the hotel, and third to the dive centre. As with our first hotel stay (last year) the room was excellent - clean, spacious (bedouin room), functioning fridge and air con (that isn't always a given even in the big 5 star hotels), comfortable bed, good sized...

we have never written a review before the Umbi Sharks Bay deserves it. We have just come back from a great week there and already miss it! We will most certainly endeavour to go back again... Our family room was airy and comfortable with split level design, the generous balcony facing the sea was off the parents room and the... More

Hi Fiona, Many thanks for the nice review, we're glad that you and your family enjoyed your time here with us and we have noted your comment regarding the mosquito nets which we know need to be replaced in many cases and new ones are already being ordered. We hope that we can welcome you all back before too long... More

Had a lovely room, very clean and comfortable, with fantastic views over the bay. The breakfast was great, as were the meals we had in the restaurant, and the staff were wonderful. The snorkelling from the beach was amazing. Went out on the dive boat for a day and although I am no longer able to dive, I was impressed... More

February 2014. Had a room with a fantastic view over the bay. Lovely sunrise and sunsets. Room was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water for showers. We had never snorkelled before but dive guide was very helpful and patient (as was my son who pulled me round with a ring) when we went out with the boats. Snorkelling... More

December 2013, 1 week diving holiday. Had one of those simple cabins on top of the cliff, which are great value for the money (20€/night) with a shared bathroom. Everything really simple but functional and up to me needs (hygienic and other). A towel would have been nice though. The diving itself was great, also the house reef where I... More
