The stay was relaxing and enjoyable. It was the exact getaway we needed from the hustle and bustle of the city! The family atmosphere was an added plus to the comfortable and serene environment. I highly recommend dive urge to all who want a seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere😊

I return to this gorgeous, friendly and Eco sound hotel/dive club twice yearly. Forget the lack of flights - Egyptair do a flight from Heathrow that has a 2 hour stopover in Cairo and is definitely the quickest and least hassle! Dive Urge is an Anglo/Egyptian family run place - and you always feel part of the family! It's comfortable,... More
