Reviewed 25 June 2014

Our two teenage boys completed their Padi Open Water and our German instructor was fantastic and very patient. My husband and I went to each dive site and snorkelled, which was also brilliant - the coral in the less tourist areas was just amazing.
The food was wholesome and well cooked and the staff were very friendly. Our accommodation was a little way from the centre and was very hot but reasonably comfortable. We would have liked to stay on the site. Ion the whole a great holiday. This was several years ago. i chose July 2013 for the review as there was no earlier option on the web site.

Wow this is a blast from the past, so many thanks for your kind words; our accommodation has been extensively upgraded since your visit more than 10 years ago, so we would love to have you back so you can see for yourself.

Loved Dive Urge. Lisa my guide was excellent and the accommodation was lovely, with all service throughout the week from food and drink to setting up equipment being great. Could not advise strongly enough that this is a lovely place to go on holiday, never mind just diving!

We had a great time with our dive instructor Ahmed who works with Dive Urge in Dahab. Very professional, very safe, very kind. Highly recommend the family company at Dive Urge and we will try to go back there next year.

Good range of tasty food and drinks.
You can sit at the tables looking out at the gorgeous sea or sit in the bedouin seating areas which are very colourful and cosy.
Service was brilliant, the staff couldnt do enough for us and at the same time the atmosphere feels very relaxed and casual.

Highly recommended!
I stayed at Dive urge a few years ago with my teenage son. It was the most chilled out ,friendly experience. Superb, easily accessible dive sites, personal experienced dive leader and looked after in every way.
I agree with all the other reviewers that the owners are extremely friendly, as are the staff, offering delicious food and comfortable accommodation. Excellent location for town and others restaurants nearby.
I shall be back!

Seaview room is wonderful though every room is charming.
Diving as usual incredible and varied.
Food excellent.
Dahab was peaceful and must be visited.
DAN diving insurance apparently covers any mishaps.
Do visit soon.
