Went on a diving safari with these guys, 14 dives over 4 days at the best dive sites Sinai has to offer - an amazing experience - highly recommended! Guides were very friendly and very professional. Will definitely come back.

The rooms are very basic and very tired a refurb is badly needed. The location is beautiful with only a few steps to the beach. As it is built on a hill there area lot of steps so not suitable for disabled or elderly.
