Not only were the accommodations fantastic and suited our needs but the family and staff that runs the place are absolutely amazing. They were so helpful and very accommodating to a large group of internationals and Egyptians there for work. They were also a pleasure to be around and just hang out with and enjoy the beauty of the area.... More

Most accommodating hosts anyone could ask for. Despite our plans constantly changing, they were nothing but smiles. Helal and his son, Samer, were very kind and helpful. They arranged a last minute intro dive and gave us many tips and recommendations. On top of that, we got stuck in abou galloum (a local area), and they were still in contact... More

Price is also pretty good. I... More

I stayed at Dive Urge for seven nights, and greatly appreciated a break from Cairo. Mr. Helal, Lynne, Nadia, Hebba, and Sameh were welcoming, friendly, and flexible hosts. It's possible to enjoy the scenes, sights, and activities of Dahab while staying elsewhere, but Dive Urge's family atmosphere sets it apart as a place you can call home, even for a... More

This felt more like home than a hotel! Everyone working here whether owners or staff are so helpful and make you feel so welcome! It is very clean and the food is very nice! The location is perfect next to everything and right on the beach. I would come here again in a heartbeat (already planning for that)!

Lynne, her family, and the Dive Urge staff are spectacular and make all of their guests feel right at home. A large group of friends just returned from a relaxing and memorable week at Dive Urge, all thanks to the Dive Urge team. Lynne was exceedingly helpful from the first moment I contacted her about the booking to daily check-ins... More

Thank you so much for your glowing review. It was a real pleasure to host your family for this vacation and we genuinely enjoyed your company, so much so that we all missed you once you had left. The chef has been praised for his work in the kitchen and looks forward to cooking for you when you come back.... More
