I discivered Dive Urge through the Responsible Travel website. It was the first time I had dived alone and was a little apprehensive. I have to say that the experience was brilliant - mostly because of the people who were so caring, but also because of the location and the food.
I loved being out of the noisy centre of town and on the edge of the Beduoin part of town - walking, shopping and eating there was so much more enjoyable than the rare occasions I ventured into the touristy parts. Dinner under the stars in the mountains was a very special memory.
The food was excellent and popping round to the booze shop was no great hardship.
Diving in such small groups (2 or 3 divers) was such a treat and the standard of guiding and equipment maintenance was impressive.
Anne's massages also come highly recommended.
The rooms are simple but fine. I could have done with a bedside light and some shelves in the bathroom, but they were minor gripes. If i didn't sleep well it was largely because I don't like air-conditioning and it was quite hot - plus the olive tree outside the window creaked a lot in the wind!
I can only say a huge thank you to all the staff, with a special mention to Lynne, Ahmed, Barak and Fraser. I will most certainly be back.
