This is the second time I have stayed at Umbi and I cannot fault it. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable, with great views over the bay. Yes, there are steps involved, but for me this isn't a problem (and I'm not particularly fit). Our shower broke one evening and it was fixed straight away. The staff are helpful... More

We had originally hoped to return to Dahab, to a quiet, relaxed hotel and dive centre away from the crowds on the Red Sea. Unfortunately the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advised us against travelling there. Unable to get a refund from the Airline, and the insurance company not willing to compensate us, we were forced to fly to Sharm-el Sheik... More

Three components to my visit here: the hotel, the restaurant and the diving. The hotel: I stayed in three different rooms, two of the Beach Hut style and one View Hut. The most notable disappointment at the hotel was the wifi. It does advertise wifi availability but I met at least five other people who had very inconsistent experiences with... More

Thanks you for your review - it was great to having you staying with us at Sharks Bay. Just to avoid any future confusion the room you upgraded to was a Bedouin Village room - the View Huts are our cheapest option at the top of the cliff (with a few more stairs to reach them!). We have been having... More

I had a short stay in Sharm and decided to take the PADI scuba diver course, couldn't have picked a better place. The divemaster was extremely professional, focused on safety, no cuts, not slacks. I felt very safe and learned very much. A great experience. I would recommend this dive school to anybody who want to learn to dive. There... More

Arrived 6 November and did a day on one of the day boats the following day, before we set off on a 4 night mini-safari around to Thistlegorm and Ras Mohamed. The safari was truly awesome, There were only 5 of us on board and Umbi still took us on their large Freedom III dive boat that caters for 22... More

We had a combined holiday of a mini safari and 3 days boat diving and recommend it for those wanting more than daily boat diving but not a full week on a liveaboard. The mini safari was on Freedom 3 which is a lovely vessel with a fantastic crew and I thoroughly recommend it. The day boat diving was on... More

I stayed in a Bedouin Room at Sharks Bay Umbi Village from 09 to 16 October, with daily diving from their boat Freedom 1. This was my 45th. visit to Egypt, though my first time at Sharks Bay.

Secound time diving with Umbi, and again a great experiance. Everything from the on time pickups to the lunch on the boat was superb, and the diving fantastic. They really are so good, even picking you up on a non diving day so you can chill out on their beach and collect your kit, this allows you to rinse it... More
