“Excellent dive base”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

We stayed at Roots Camp in June after a week on a live-aboard in the Southern Red Sea.This is a great place to chill out with an excellent house reef just across the road to continue with more diving.Very friendly staff with good food and very comfortable air con rooms.Dive trips to further sites are easily arranged with options of boat trips and shore diving.This area is not built up at all so you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of place like sharm.

Room Tip: Choose a room with air con to avoid the heat at night.The swimming pool was not quite finished befor...

A few weeks ago I stayed at Roots with a friend of mine. We are both experienced divers and have stayed at many diving spots around the world. This venue is well organised, well managed, well maintained and staff is professional and very helpful. The bungalows offer everything you need. The food is good and the atmosphere is very pleasant.
The housereef is still very beautiful with lots of different species. Also the other divespots which can be reached by rib are still as beautiful as other spots were a decade ago.

We stayed at Roots Camp a week ago. It is a well run diving centre, with a great house reef, brilliant staff and guides and excellent accommodation. Everything is done to make your diving as trouble and effort free as possible. You can just dive the house reef or go off to other shore dive sites or dive from a zodiac. Loads of variety. What's more the catering is organised around the diving. We went on a fabulous night dive and were treated to a barbeque on the beach ready for when we finished. Perfect! Thanks to Steve, Clare, Moudi, Fachi, Chef and all the rest for a fab week.

Room Tip: The eco huts are a bit basic. We chose one of the superior rooms with air-con...much better.

A group of us were here week of 11th May 2013. Steve, Claire and all the other staff (dive staff and hotel staff) were really helpful and well organised. They plan meals around your dive trips, lunch is taken down to the beach for you, and their chef is good. They sell a range beer and spirits, which wasn't clear from other info we had. There is a good range of channels available on the Satellite TV, Coffee/tea and water available 24/7 from the restaurant. The swimming pool should be ready soon. I found the beds quite hard which is the only reason for the 3 stars on sleep quality.

Their house reef is amazing, the best I've been to, when blue spotted stingrays, scorpion fish and crocodile fish seem common you know you are somewhere special.

Steve, Claire and staff were all very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Rooms were spotlessly clean and the food great with plenty of it! Superb diving and the dive centre staff were very professional and worked hard meeting the needs of our dive group of 21. The venue with the house reef is excellent superb for training with so much to see on the North and South reef. Reefs along the coast are also excellent. Huge thanks to Steve, Claire and all the staff for making our dive holiday so memorable. We will definitely return here next year.

Just wanted to add my comments to others confirming just what a special place this diving camp is. Nothing is too much trouble for Clare Steve or any of the staff who all go out of their way to make your holiday as relaxing as possible. Particular thanks go to Bebo and Shariff for catering for 2 very fussy eaters. The house reef is lovely and service received from the dive centre staff is also second to none - from retrieving lost masks in the bay to washing your gear every day.

i recently returned from a great week at Roots Camp where myself and the group i travelled with had a most amazing holiday and diving experience. Steve and Claire proved to be fantastic hosts frpom the beginning to the end. We were met at the airport promptly by Claire . our baggage was loaded and within 10 minutes we were on our way to the camp. on our arrival we were seved cooling drinks and our baggage was placed in our rooms. steve then gave us a run down of all the facilities and oppurtunities available , A-Z .
diving on the house reef proved to be a lot better than expexted , stunning corals, a pinnacle with the most amazing red anemone and resident clown fish, hawksbill turles on our first dive and 2 eagle rays to name but a few of the sights to be seen
apres dive proved to be just as great, lunch on the beach and first class evening meals, as much as we could eat which is great after 4 dives a day!
The service we received was first class, house boys did a great job in the rooms and the dive boys did not stop working from 6 in the morning to 9 ay night when we did night dives. all in all if you want a first class dive holiday roots is the plavce to go. looking forward to returnuing next year , this time for 2 weeks. Thanks Steve and Claire for a great holiday
