Beautiful place, nice beach, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent cook for the daily meals. Reasonable prices for renting diving equipment and the snorkeling trip we attended, we enjoyed a lot. Free pick-up service from the airport.

I was solo traveling to get a taste of the Red Sea. The accommodations are clean and basic with comfortable beds - Bedouin village rooms look out over the ocean with gorgeous morning sunrises. The service is very casual - do not expect 5 Star efficiency. Things run on Egyptian so relax a bit. Morning breakfast is sufficient with ready...

The Bedouin rooms are really cool. Loved the environment. I would not dive or eat at this facility but there are places close by that are spectacular. The reception and the cars to the airport are totally irresponsible and unreliable. I had to get security guard to drag the driver out of bed to avoid missing my flight after repeated...

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...

Very quiet, lovely and familiar place. Good diving center, daily diving leaving from own jetty (no long transfers to public jetty), great liveaboards! Very nice Restaurant with excellent seafood and a lovely Bedouin Tent to relax with a Shisha and tea.
