We've just got back from a weeks holiday with Dive urge and, having never written a review on anywhere we've stayed, felt compelld to write a few lines. After the hussle and bussle at sharm airport we were a little confused as to why there was no real "structure" and "organisation" in Dive urge. We very quickly and happily realised that there were such things but it happened in a way that allowed you to slip in to an uber laid back style of service. The breakfast started at 7;30am till.............you got up. Diving was to start at 9:30am but there was nobody running round trying to hurry you to the kit room. We had Mohammed, Kayla and Tariq (sorry if i've spelt those names wrong) and all three of them made the dives extreamly enjoyable and relaxed, however saftey was never off the cards, Mohammed was very thorough with the check dive going through alot of skills to make sure you were competant in the water before unleashing us on the coral life. Something which more dive schools should be encouraging.
My wife had a few back issues and dive urge couldn't be more accommodating. She kitted up in the water and de-kitted there aswell and didn't have to carry anything until she was comfortable enough to do so.
All the staff in dive urge were extremly friendly and helpful. They are all a credit to the establishment. Food urge was excellent aswell particularly the Shakshoukra. Any dietry requirements or any variances to the menu were no problem from smaller portions to nut allergies everyone seemed very clued up on the menu. The kitchen was very clean and tidy from morning to night and there was always someone cleaning as they went.
The rooms were very spacious and light as were the bathrooms.
Extra excursions were on offer and we strongly reccommend the bedouin BBQ in the mountains. An excellent way to end a very relaxing holiday.
Thanks to all and we'll be back! Rob & Claire
