Thank you for everything, we really enjoyed the diving with you. I can really recommend this diving center, they have their own boat which it's not overloaded as the other boats usually are. The instructor has a lot of experience and the whole stuff is friendly. Thank you once again, we will see us soon

Hotel: Great value for money, rooms are clean, problem in the bathroom solved immediately, and view from balcony was really great, but stairs are a bit too much for some. Diving: Umbi Diving Village has it's own jetty, so it was very convenient for divers like us going to and from the dive sites. Our group (6 divers) had one... More

This place is the best place to book your diving adventures. Professionalism of the people combined with reasonable price. Look for Mr Adel as your diving guide for a worry free and more fun diving experience. When it comes to the accommodation you have options of having a view of the of the Bay but endure the steps going up... More

Dived with Umbi in March of this year 2014 so it was quiet. First day I had a good shore dive from the dive centre with my guide 1 to 1 ratio. Next day I was picked up early, waited around the dive centre for an hour, finally my guide appeared with his student. Yeah that's right, my fun dives... More

Thank you for taking the time to highlight the problems you had diving with us. Firstly we are happy that you at least enjoyed your first shore dive and we sincerely apologise for the "unprofessional" experience you had the following day. On checking the dive manifests for that time we can see that you did have two very short dives... More

Nicely located in very convenient location, with a marvelous view overlooking the sea. But it didnt suite us as a couple with a lil baby, due to mosquitoes and some loud noises at overnight late hours; as well as balconies design. Service is somewhat unprofessional yet staff are quite polite and supportive to their utmost extent. Price is so reasonable... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on your stay with us. We note and agree that the Standard Bedouin room balconies are not suitable for very young children unless supervised by their parents at all times and we are sorry that you still experienced mosquitoes even though there are repellents and nets in the rooms.

First time in Sharm on a 4 day diving package, It was amazing, the people at Umbi diving were fantastic, we never had to carry a thing, always got through the customs post each morning in the express vip lane, (well for us it seemed there was one) the boat was well maintained and clean, on board facilities and crew...

I booked a room for a day use, the place is lovely and by the beach, price is perfect for budget travellers and it has a diving centre, very nice Bedouin cafe for shisha and snacks and a seafood restaurant, try Soya fish, was lovely... Snorkelling and diving there is WOW! Service is good too

"Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend" is exactly my experience of Sharks Bay. Every member of staff does their best to ensure that you have a relaxing, wonderful time. The views, both under and above water, are stunning. The dive guides ensure that not only are the dives varied but also that they are safe. Restaurant and... More

Sharks Bay for me and my family is a place to come home to away from home. The more you come back the better it becomes. If you are looking for a calm relaxing place this is the one. What can I say more than it is the best, smily faces, friendly, excellent service. I will be back every year... More

The dive centre at Umbi in my opinion caters extremely well for all divers from novice to the technical. Being a tech diver myself I was particularly impressed with the service provided by the technical guide Mark Chilton. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he worked tirelessly to ensure the diving we did went without any dramas. The... More
