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

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.

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.

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

Excellent dive center with very welcoming, relaxed staff! I spent two days doing my advanced open water course with a brilliant instructor who made me feel calm and safe throughout, ending the holiday with 2 dives at the Thistlegorm wreck!

Booked to dive for first time following PADI open water certification with Try-Dive with 2 family members. The dive centre couldn't be more helpful and arranged for one-to-one instructor assistance for the 2 1st timers and an extended deeper dive for me after their 25 minute dive. Entry from the jetty was very simple and safe with amazing corals and... More

The hotel was very nice and the staff was excellent. The dive center was fabulous and give us 4 days of beautiful boat diving. We dove the Thistlegorm wreck and the setup that the hotel provided was super for that. The hotel also arranged a one day tour with their vehicle contact to Dahab and that was also very nice.
