Food and accommodation excellent, staff extremely helpful. If you want a personalised diving holiday, dislike the crowds of the big boats and shores of other big resorts, go to Roots. Relaxed and very friendly. Well organised great diving.

Roots is a perfect alternative for people looking to avoid the huge, impersonal resort complexes that one is almost forced to stay at when looking to dive this coast. It is all-inclusive, but this is a necessity considering the next shops/restaurants are 15 km away. Accommodation is spotless, water is very hot, beds comfy and you can be as isolated... More

We discovered this place in 2013 and loved the diving, the people and the resident dog. So we went back last year, stayed a week at Roots and joined Steve and Clare on the South Safari (King Marco Polo). Staff at the dive center and the camp are really friendly and helpfull and we look forward to see them again... More

Was lucky enough to have been recommended this camp, now I feel it only fair to share the love! Fantastic value for money, attentive, friendly staff and of course awesome diving in the Red Sea. Steve and his team really make you feel welcomed and comfortable during your stay and everything is run with quiet efficiency....it all 'just happens' as... More

Spent a little more than a week and did the PADI Open Water course while there. Great friendly staff and a very relaxed, easy going atmosphere. The current "eco huts" (in the process of getting replaced) can get a little cold in January but other than that the place is great. The house reef is great for both diving and... More

Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said! Fantastic place, we stayed in a deluxe room overlooking the pool & sea. Stunning views, the room had everything we needed & was cleaned on a daily basis. The food was fantastic, plenty of it & always something there to feed even the fussiest of eaters. Christmas Day & New... More

A magical holiday. Big thanks to Steve Claire and all their great staff. To the dive team Moudi Tito Horus and especially Fathi. To all of the 'inmates' Mike and Sharon, Rob and Jan, Pete and Emma, Adrian and Kasia, Nils and Lucie, Rico and Maya, Jerry and Anna, Dave, Carol and Dennis. Not forgetting the loudest bark in Egypt... More

I am running out of wonderful things to say about Roots because this was our third stay and yet again it was excellent. All I can say is that it just gets better year on year. The staff remember us and make us feel so welcome and special when we arrive. Again, we had a wonderful Christmas which was a... More

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
