“Camel Hotel & Dive Centre -The best Sharm has to offer”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

What can I say, once again we had a wonderful time with all the friends we have made (staff and guests) over the years and on our many return visits to camel.
The hotel and dive centre are well run, clean, professional and very friendly. The onsite bars and restaurants are very good. The hotel is well situated in the middle of Naama bay. You can stay there for a family holiday, but it is predominately a hotel used by divers, so the bigger all inclusive hotels may be your thing if bringing the family and you are not divers. If you are a going solo, you will not feel lonely. Everyone is so friendly, you arrive as a customer but leave as a friend. And trust me, once you have been to camel once, you will return, it gets under your skin.
We always feel special and looked after by the hotel and dive centre staff.
We have such a laugh and the diving is a new experience every time and totally amazing.
If you are wary of going over there because of the political issues, don't be. There is a real feel good factor in Sharm from the locals and we felt very welcome.
Well done once again to everyone at Camel for giving us a brilliant holiday :-D

Room Tip: We normally stay in room 217 or 218, which is upstairs overlooking the pool. If you are disabled, th...

I have now stayed at Camel about 8 times I think. I stay there as part of a group specifically for the diving they offer. The group gets bigger every time because we always meet new friends. I have said before that whilst you could stay at this hotel if you were not intending to dive, Camel is primarily about the diving experience and having won Dive Centre of the Year last year and come a close second this year (that's the world ranking by the way) you might want to consider carefully especially if as part of your Egyptian experience you really want to wear one of those fashionable "all inclusive" plastic bracelets all week. Not at Camel. Rooms here are cleaned every day. Luxurious?...no.....but far better than basic. A place to sleep comfortably on a large bed with functional air-con and a bathroom big enough to swing a camel in....definitely. (No animals were hurt in this experiment). Lovely clean pool. It often has divers in it. Three or four places to eat on site including a Tandoori restaurant. Three bars including the world famous roof bar.

However, it is the people who make Camel the place to which customers return time and again. If I named everyone I'd be into a 10,000 word dissertation but every one of them, from the guys who clean the pool and tend the flower beds down to the dive professionals, goes out of his way to make sure that you are having the best time you can have.

Camel is the epitome of how a diving operation should be run. It is as simple as that. Just brilliant guys. Thank you very much.

I stayed at the hotel as part of a diving group and found the hotel offered everything we needed. We were originally given a double room (2 girls sharing) which really smelt but after speaking to the staff, we were immediately moved to a clean, twin bed room. The rooms are equipped with a safe, TV and fridge, ensuite etc. In fact the only thing not provided is a hairdryer but considering the heat, we didn't need one anyway!

The hotel would be great for friends/couples looking for a beach/pool holiday becasue the hotel pool is empty during the day as everyone is diving but has restaurants and bars as part of the mini complex. There is also free wifi (although at times was a little slow).

I would definitely go back and stay here as value for money is brilliant. The buffet breakfast wasn't amazing but then we didn't pay for an amazing breakfast. The dive club is on site and we found them to be very professional and friendly.

Room Tip: I think all rooms face the pool but we were on the first floor which meant we had a balcony.

Thanks a lot for your feedback, and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Camel while travelling within a group.
We are sorry to hear that the room which was initially assigned needed to be changed and also we apologies about the glitches of the wifi connection, which we are currently working to improve. We also passed your comments about the breakfast to our chefs, who mainly have to satisfy requests of healthy and nourishing choices for very hungry divers!
We're really pleased that you highlight most of the pros of staying at Camel both for individuals and for groups. Being divers ourselves we focus in providing everything we believe is essential for a perfect diving holiday experience, which starts at the airport when we come and pick you up and continues at our diving centre, onboard our boats, in our hotel rooms and at our Bar and restaurants –all in one place!
Thanks again on behalf of the whole team, and we look forward to welcoming you at Camel on a future visit.

It was a perfect week! Everything was great, a all in one service. Hotel, Restaurant, Bar and Dive Center. We had to organize nothing, it was really enjoyable and relaxing. Great Diving in the Red Sea. We went to the Thistlegorm, Dahab, Street of Tiran, Ras Mohammed and the Dunraven. It was all perfectly organized. I will come back once!

We stayed in camel diving hotel last week. I really liked it. They have a professionel diving team,they are very helpfull. especially "deniz", we liked you too much. She's excellent for turkish divers,bacause she is the only guide who can speak turkish in sharm i think. The hotel is in the midlle of naama bay ,this is good actually but too much noisy nights till morning.rooms are good but the beaulding is a little old and sometimes technical problems especially in the bathroom occurs, but not a big deal. The personel is kind,they are helpfull. So we spend a good week there and i suggest camel diving hotel everyone...

Many thanks for taking the time to post your feedback, and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and your diving. Our diving instructor Deniz is the only Turkish-speaking instructor in Sharm, so we're really pleased that you enjoyed diving with her - we have passed on to her your kind feedback! Thanks also for your comments about our hotel facilities, which we have passed on to the departments concerned. We do apologize that noise levels were higher than normal during the period of your visit, which unfortunately coincided with a local holiday weekend. We would like to assure you that we have taken additional measures to avoid our guests being bothered by noise in future; these include new agreements with night time venues in our area to restrict the volume of their music. Once again, thank you for your kind feedback. We look forward to diving with you on your next visit!

This is a great hotel for diving. The dive centre is fantastic. The instructors are helpful and professional, all the dive trips and equipment are professionally organised. The staff and crew are polite and helpful. We had a chance to improve our diving and met very nice people along the way, without stressing about planning or organising dives, but just by paying!
The hotel itself is nice, good, clean rooms. Our first room was facing the street so very noisy but the next night we were given a room facing the pool so it was nice and peaceful. Breakfast was generous.
The hotel's location is great, right in the centre of action, near bars and restaurants. We liked meze at Fayrouz and Camel Bar was very popular!
Overall a great stay for diving enthusiasts!

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room, facing the pool.

We love what we do, and it's always a pleasure to share our passion for amazing Red Sea diving holidays with fellow enthusiasts! We would like to apologize for the noise that you experienced during your stay at the street-view room; unfortunately as we're located right at the centre of the resort, noise outside our premises can sometimes happen. We're happy to hear that after we upgraded you to the pool-view Superior room, you found this nice and peaceful.
