My husband is coeliac (wheat & gluten intolerant) so as we were all inclusive I was concerned with what he would be able to eat. I needn't have worried. Anything he couldn't eat was replaced by a gluten & wheat free option. So he was able to enjoy his meals like the rest of us. Would highly recommend. Excellent service.

We were attracted to Roots by their website and Trip Advisor Reviews. The website gives an accurate reflection of the style of holiday but does not do justice to the level of "customer service". Whilst everyone appeared very relaxed and welcoming they also paid close attention to safety. We dived the house reef and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to go... More

I went back to Roots camp in October 2014,for the 2nd time, but as I hadn't been too well before I went, I intended to read,swim,snorkel and relax. The place did not disappoint! The staff looked after me, nothing was too much trouble or difficult and I was surprised and pleased to find that my snorkelling equipment had been carried... More

I’d previously submitted a review about my experience of staying at Roots Camp and diving with Pharoah Dive Club for a week towards the end of September 2014.Some of the (honest) statements that I made about my experiences there were subsequently challenged by the owners of Roots Camp and it looks like they had my original (honest) review removed. I... More

Thank you again for taking the time to write such an extensive column, we take all comments on board and consider them for the future improvement of Roots. The first point is we did not have the last review removed, we offered a complete response to all points which basically was full of praise for the staff and service and... More

What a great place to relax and chill even if you don't want to dive every day. I did a few dives for the first time since I had a serious accident and really enjoyed the fish and coral the water was clear and warm. The staff, who are all extremely friendly and caring, made sure that I was ready... More

Our first time on the Red Sea (been tot Dahab) en to Roots. 1 minute out of the Marsa Alam Airport, and Martina already phoned us via the driver: "Welcome and a late Dinner is waiting for you :)" That's service! We loved our stone roof Boutique Room; spacious enough, super-silent aircon, and quiet-quiet!Cleand and dusted every day. The meals... More

We have just returned from our second trip to Roots Dive Camp. It was wonderful, again. The management are great, the staff are attentive and great fun, the house reef is smashing and the off site dives are really good as well. Steve and Claire have made improvements since last year, such as the hard path down to the beach... More

Don't get me wrong our holiday was good but there were a few things that could easily have been avoided to make it the best! The main thing I would have like to have been warned about before going is the problem with the camps o-rings, any divers will know what I'm talking about, it's quite an important bit of... More

I can confirm that we had a great holiday with Claire and Steve at Roots Camp. We wanted laid back and relaxing and it is what they provide. The location is remote, but a taxi to El Quesir can be arranged should you need a bar or local shops. The dive sites range from a hard boat to house reef,... More

This was our first trip to Roots Camp and we rather wish we were still there! We met Steve and Claire at the Dive Show in October and were very impressed with what we saw & heard. We have 2 fairly new JWO teenagers in tow (15 & 13) and we were keen to give them the opportunity to build... More
