Three days already passed that we arrived back home and I am still in my vacation bubble. Were were 6 friends meeting in Sharm for snorkeling. It wasn't supposed to be expensive (as this vacation wasn't really planned) and we only wanted to have nice water and sun. We chose this hotel because it was cheap, breakfast was included and...

Great diving trip. The lunches on the boat were as satisfying as the dives. The rooms are nice, but you should always use the curtains around the bed. The receptionist is helpful with the arrangements. The breakfasts and the dinners of the hotel restaurant weren't so great.

Had a really nice time here and would love to come back and do a liveaboard cruise. The staff is very friendly and professional. The prices were really good. We went during the summer season which meant it was a small group of people. Could really recommend going here in the summer if you like to have chilled out vacation....

A friendly and homely place, retains a charm of it's own. Great diving!!!! The dive staff are skilled and helpful as are the boat captains and crew. We have been visiting for 15 years and many of the staff are still there, a testament to the happiness of the whole place.

After much research looking for an alternative to bland soulless resorts, found this place for my 2nd visit to Sharm and been going back ever since. They own the jetty next to the hotel, meaning that instead of having to get picked up at your hotel, taken to your dive centre, wait for all the other divers to arrive, get...
