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

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)!

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😊
