I stayed at Dive Urge in November 2016 for a short break. The rooms are lovely and quirky, overlooking a lovely garden, very clean and everything functions well (not to be taken for granted in Egypt!!) Location is great, right by the beach a few metres from Eel Garden dive site, and a few minutes walk into the main Dahab...

Dive urge is a clean, quiet and well run dive club / hotel on one of the last quiet beaches left in Dahab. The rooms are simple but clean and everything works. The public space are beautifully kept creating a 'garden of tranquility' inside the hotel. The hotel beach is kept spotlessly clean and is very well maintained. The restaurant,...

I couldn't of been happier with the whole experience with Dive Urge, from bombarding Lynne with emails before we arrived, to being welcomed, made to feel at home and enjoying 10 guided dives. The accommodation is homely and comfortable and the staff are friendly, helpful and always available. The dive sites are stunning with amazing visibility, Mamdoo our dive guide...

We came back here after 18 months since our last visit and really happy to see that Dive Urge and many places in Dahab are still as good as ever, despite recent political nonsense.

OK so Dahab/ D.U is not Utopia but in my view and those of its many "Urgers" (those of us who return again and again) it is very close . Dahab itself may in some places look like the aftermath of a devastation but it has warmth - atmosphere - so many Dive sites - an authenticity that is irresistible....

The rooms are small and simple but comfortable and with AirCon. The garden and beach are great so you only go to the room to sleep... Their diving center is also very good, with a great guide and good equipment. The family that run the place are very nice and welcoming and you feel more like visiting family than staying...

Not only were the accommodations fantastic and suited our needs but the family and staff that runs the place are absolutely amazing. They were so helpful and very accommodating to a large group of internationals and Egyptians there for work. They were also a pleasure to be around and just hang out with and enjoy the beauty of the area....
