Back to Oonas in Sharm for the 2nd time, right away you know it's going to be a great experience as I was met on entering the airport by Ahmed, who I remembered from my 1st visit, he called me Mike right away, knew I was on a winner,super young guy who had already bought my visa for me and was ready to transfer me to the hotel, excellent, NO waiting around ! The rooms at the small hotel are spacious enough for a solo traveller like me, but could be a little small for 2 adults or a family. Furnishings are basic, beds are a bit too hard for my liking, saying that, the beds had fresh linen EVERY day, and the rooms were spotless ! The restaurant on the ground floor is roomy enough for all guests, with basic dishes at a reasonable price. The staff are great, especially the BIG guy I gabbed with every day. We talked about the state of political issues affecting Egypt at present, the Muslim religion, ALL sorts of stuff, nice way to while away the evening. The dive centre is ON THE BALL ! I went to register early on my 1st day there, and was greeted with a very cheery ' Hi Mike ' nice to see you again ! Made my day ! The gang there are superb, VERY professional, but at the same time real earthy folks ! Nothing was too much trouble for them, and no sooner had I registered than my kit was whisked away to be transported down to our boat ' Hooligan ' in the marina. Intimate numbers in the group saw we were all individually treated to a great fun experience. The guides, ' Rachy Sweetpea ', ' Amy Pet Lamb ' and ' Pete Mate ' always had our wellbeing and enjoyment as paramount in their job. The dive sites were not very busy, and the timing of the dives ensured we pretty much had the sites almost solely for ourselves ! Weather was fab, 32 every day, water 23 every day, gentle breeze most of the time to cool us. Best part of the day ( apart from the diving ) was ' beer 'o clock ' ! None of the team abandoned their guests after the day of diving, they all got stuck in to make sure we had a great time, and we DID ! Would I go back again ? HELL YES ! There's a group of us planning a return in September to do it all again, can't wait ! Thanks Corrie & Nick for a great place with great people !
