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...More

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...More

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.
