First time in Hurghada. Being familiar with Steigenberger standards, I choosed ALDAU for one-week vacation together with a group of friends (1 - OW, 2 - AOW). Another reason was in house ILIOS diving center, as we were looking to have as many diving trips possible. So, starting our research, what we have found? Ilios Dive club is located inside the hotel, on the beach. It has its own pier (jetty), with their own boats. Huge advantage, as not wasting time and effort to be transferred to marina/port… in order to depart for diving. Nice and well maintained boats with friendly crews. All covid measures were in place on the boat, including disinfectant, small number of divers/each boat and very clean, generally. Very german management , as Frau Jackie appear to keep rigorous rules for tourists/staff/administrative papers/equipment. Also, here covid measures were in place (I asked for a sanitized regulator for each diving day, and received them in a sealed plastic). We had a package of three days with 2-3 dives/per day. Our guide instructor underwater was Mustafa. Also, was my (best) buddy during the all my 6 dives. I take the opportunity to thank him for all the care, advice, and professionalism One last thing, very important: each day we had trips to different locations, no repetitive dive spots and no more than two boats with divers per spot. In the water, you are not crossing with any other group. And .... corals - walls, gardens, marine life .... like nowhere in the world!!!!

We booked a variety of different options (1x AOWD course, 1x Nitrox, 1x Check Dive, 2x 5 day package). Although we were surprised that the booking button did not stear us to a booking page but to a mail pop-up, the process worked very well. Martina replied within a few hours and did send not only a quote but also a suggestion on how we both could be on the same boat each day. Also the one day off we asked for after our 3rd of the 7 days of diving wasn't a problem at all - really easy, individual and reliable. The check-in and general organisation onsite was friendly and trying to make the best out of every situation. All tools were specially cleaned and sealed but still the exchange if something did not fit perfectly was no problem. The divespots were decided daily based on the weather and wishes of the boat/dive participants. Every suggestion was taken seriously and into consideration. Great team offsite and onsite the boat. The boats were the cleanest I've ever seen at any dive location and distance was never a problem. During the sunset dive we were surprised on the way back with some snacks and a beer - highly appreciated after the long day. Everytime you came out of the sea a staff of the boat did help you with fins and the empty tank, same thing in the morning in case of a change of boat - really friendly and helpful and never too close; something really hard in the Covid times, but done to perfection. Our dive guides were all very qualified and every briefing was done seriously. The one dive guide that did impress us the most was Mostafa. He really had a great mix of being serious, making jokes and giving useful tipps - would always go back to him. All in all we can only recommend to go diving here, especially if you are guest in the Steigenberger, but also from external (about 60% were from outside the resort during our stay).

We went to diving trip and to orange bay with ilios center. 1hour at orange bay and half a day diving, whole day excursion.We saw amazing fishes. Sea color was amazing. We also rented a speed boat at Ilios and this was even better. I recommend renting a speed boat, do not miss it, You can go wherever You want and You will see better beaches and marine life.

Had a great time last time so brought some friends and family for diving and snorkelling with me - they all had a fantastic time. Can't recommend this organisation enough, always a warm welcome from shore and boat staff and made to feel like one of the family.

My husband, ten-year-old son and I recently had a wonderful experience with Ilios Dive Club during our 10-day holiday in Hurghada over the new year. Our son successfully completed his Junior Open Water course with briliant instructor Maysara, who really gained his (and our) trust and respect with his warm, caring and engaging manner. We also joined a number of boat dives in the course of our holiday and were really well looked after from start to finish - good equipment, great shore staff, comfortable boats and experienced dive guides. Cannot fault them!
