Dive resort of legends amongst dive enthusiasts; now a very pleasant small older style family resort with personalized service, offering great diving in small groups. San Salvador feels like it's on the edge of the planet, laid back, undeveloped, ultra friendly and crime free. Please, San Salvador, establish marine reserves so that your reefs will remain pristine!

I went to Riding Rock the 1st week in July 2013, and had a superior time. Here are some details: We could not get there in one day. Needed to stay overnight to get the 11am flight to San Salvador. We stayed at the Orange Hill hotel just 10 minutes from the hotel, and it was just fine. We got...

I cannot say enough good things about the staff, accommodation and diving. It's everything a scuba diver could want and then more. The food is fantastic, the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is warm and friendly and their are sharks on virtually every dive. i will be returning ever year.

I was here at the same time as Jason H, and I can only echo his comments, but perhaps not as eloquently. While it's not a sparkly marble and glass cathedral honoring recent architectural styles, the rooms were very clean, and very much in keeping what you would expect from a family operation that prides themselves on customer service and...

My wife and I just returned from a week in the Out Islands and we stayed at the Riding Rock Inn while diving. While not a five-star resort, Riding Rock has the kind of rustic homey charm we love. Clean beds, great meals and friendly, accommodating staff made the hotel a wonderful base from which to dive daily. The dive...

Date on review is wrong - no way to change it I have been going to Riding Rock for diving since 1979. My first visits were with diving companions who were there for the outstanding dive opportunities with first class service. When I had children other priorities meant there was a gap of many years before organising for the whole...

This is a dive resort - and a damn good one! World-class dive operation, housed in a comfortable, rustic lodge, managed by a tremendous, friendly and competent staff. Not much else to do on the island if you don't dive or fish - but if you wanted to disappear for a time, this is a good place to do it....

Once again, Riding Rock has come up trumps :) Their dive operation recognises the different abilities of people, and caters for all of them. Our party had everything from dive vets with 500+ dives, to someone on her first dive holiday, but Captain Bruce and Divemasters Hogan and Liz managed to give us sites that kept us all happy. The...
