Let the camp owners know where you found their property! Was it on NuweibaBeach.com that you learned about a certain camp, hotel or other accommodation? Let them know you found it here! And if you liked the place, why not let others know as well by writing a short review on this site. Thanks.

Our rating system explained... Our star rating is based on the facilities on offer in the camps and hotels, not on the quality of those facilities. So a hotel with wifi, 24 hour electricity and restaurant will get a higher rating than a camp with cleaner bathrooms and a nicer view, but no internet or dive centre. Most of the time the rating will also depict the price range; where 1 stars will be very basic and very cheap and 5 stars will be expensive, but luxurious... Approximate price range: all based on double room in high season :

starsless than 50LE
starsbetween 50 and 100LE
starsbetween 100 and 250LE
starsbetween 250 and 500LE
starshigher than 500LE
