The perfect school for your scuba diving course! Arnaud was an awesome instructor, felt very confident with him and had a lot of fun :) Little bonus was getting the course in my native language (French). They have instructors from many nationalities. Definitely recommend the place!

Best place to get certified! Rooms are included with dive packages so I'd highly recommend doing a certification course if you aren't already dive certified. Rooms/dives were cheap and this place has really high ratings! The location is great, it's located on the middle of a strip of restaurants and things to do. The Fishbowl Restaurant is right on the...

“You get what you pay for; there are some very luxurious-looking rooms and others that are clearly older/less well-kept”

“Depending of your need (quiet or not), ask for a room close to the dive center (more noisy) or far from the dive center (more quiet)”

“Rooms near infinity pool are a good size, not great if you have mobility problems, as the walk up from the beach is steep.”
