This is the fifth time I have stayed at Marsa Shagra and it keeps getting better! Myself and a group of four friends stayed form the 20th March to the 28th March 2015. The weather was unusally chilly for the first 3 days, but not much you can do about that! The trip out on Monarch was pretty normal for... More

I went there with my girlfriend for 7 nights. The pick up service at Hurghada was on time. Staff was very nice and helpful during all times. We didn't need or want any internet connection but if you are looking for one, you have to pay for the access and the connection is only possible at the reception. We took... More

We (my son and I) did spend a week here just after the new year holiday period - occupancy was low (50-60 guests while during New Year they had 250 guests) so this could have had a, positive, impact on the experience. We came specifically for the diving and to get our open water certification. You can choose different sorts... More

Seriously, the dives are cool on the reef but you have to pay for everything in extra, especially if you want to make nice interesting dives (not from the reef) Staff is not at all nice, they make you pay a lot for each thing you need : airport transfert (really expensive...) , equipment, internet at the reception (not in...

Relaxed shore diving as well as excursion by rib or bus to nearby sites. Excellent house reef. Whilst there house reef had turtles, octopi, black tip shark , napoleon wrasse. Worth noting that diving packages are for days, not by the dive.

If you re looking to spend most of your time diving then this is the place. Good equipment, great location and great customer service. The food is good. But there aren't other activities to be done than diving. The camp is very close to Elphinstone and a lot of other awesome diving sites.

I've called my review that because Marsa Shagra is primarily a diving centre, something I hadn't realised before I went with dolphinswims.co.uk. We were the only snorkellers the week we were there although on the overnight safari we met other snorkellers from different companies. Being outside the main diving action, and being in a minority (about 5%) of English people... More
