Scuba Diving is one of the main reasons why people come to visit Hurghada.
I learned to dive in April 1999 at Divers Lodge. The guys really seemed to know their stuff and I was very happy with them.
In April 2003, I spent another week diving with them. By now, I was a PADI Rescue Diver so I could judge them a bit better.
The one criticism I had was their equipment was prone to a few problems although I personally never had any problems. From what I understood, it was worn out rather than badly maintained.
The staff were as friendly and helpful as I remember them.
The most popular place in Hurghada is Dutch-Egyptian disco bar on the very beach. It is fool of young people, almost, every night in season. It is dancing bar with a podium on the sand and all chairs and the bar are also on the sand. It is open until until the down.
For the entrance, you will pay 30 L.E. (7 L.E.. = 1 Euro) and for it you will get three plastic coins. A coffee coasts one, same as a juice, beer is two, cocktails and alcohol drinks three. When you spend the coins, coffee and juices are 7, beers (local - "Sakkara" 0,5l, "Sakkara 7 stars", 0,33l with 7% of alcohol, imported - "Carlsberg"...) are 14, alcohol drinks (imported) 21 and cocktails, with or without alcohol, 21 L.E. It is on the sand so the best thing is to come in sandals.
dont miss the local kitchen
I like this place cause it has many egyptian dishes that i miss when i travel but when i am there i feel a bit home. You will also find some international dishes such as pasta and steaks. I like the molokhia
