Description:

Desert Rose PADI Dive Centre, Stella di Mare Hotel and other locations....

Desert Rose PADI Dive Centre, Stella di Mare Hotel and other locations. There are a lot of dive centres in Sharm and the surrounding area, so who do you choose? Can’t claim to have tried them all, but these folks are PADI certified, demonstrated their competence, and have plenty of hire kit available. They are also friendly and demonstrated huge patience, borne through each of them having thousands of hours of experience.

Me and my partner did the 3 day open water dive course, first time diving. We had khaled and he was AMAZING! He was so patient with us, giving us time to take it at our own pace. The equipment was great quality and everyone was a huge help and looked after us very well. We also got the professional... More

I did two dives with Desert Rose after being persuaded by the guy at the office just down Hilton Waterfalls and here's what I think: The equipment was excellent. I was promised a lot that wasn't actually true, going to different dive sites and how much the diving costs etc. The dive instructor wasn't really paying any attention to us... More

Me and my boyfriend went on a diving Holliday here in Sharm and had our minds set on another dive center (after a lot of research) before arriving to Sharm.

We stayed at the Stella del Mare and the mini bus went direct from here to the boat. No messing, no delays. The boat was top quality, spotless and immaculate. The trip was well staffed and altogether this was a well run day trip. Food was OK. This was fun and good value for money.

We chose this hotel because of the Desert Rose Dive Center located on site. We didn't realise the hotel had it's own house reef, bonus!
