Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful week with Joe. The rooms and pool areas are beautiful and feel like a relaxing haven. We ate here most nights and were very happy with the range and quality of cooking. The staff are friendly and Joe was able to cater to all our diving needs too; planning an excellent range of dive sites and sightings for us. We also took the market and waterfall tour which we really enjoyed

Had a wonderful time at Joe’s diving. This weekend I did the SSI open water course. This was the first time that I dove. It was such an amazing experience I learned a lot and it was so so much fun. Martin is the best dive instructor, he is very passioned about diving and loves to share all his knowledge. He is very calm and makes sure that everyone is very comfortable in the open water. During the dives he makes sure to show you all the amazing spots and the different kind of animals that live underwater. I will definitely come back more often to Joe’s diving. Because I can’t wait to explore more together with my friends and Martin and Friska. During the course I also stayed at the resort, this was also fantastic! The place is absolutely beautiful, The rooms and all the facility were so clean, the breakfast was really good and ofcourse the company. Martin and Friska are wonderful people, they are really friendly, funny and helpful. It was really a wonderful stay thanks to them and their lovely dogs!! I would recommend this to everyone !!

Super nice dive center to learn how to dive. Me and my friends did the open water course. We could sleep here which was very nice due to the busy schedule of the course. Very friendly owners, amazing prices, good breakfast, nice accomodation, clean facilities and very enjoyable! Would recommend to everyone!

Myself and three friends recently completed our SSI open water certificate through Joe’s Diving Bali. The full experience from start to finish was absolutely amazing! Martin, the dive instructor, was very knowledgeable, relaxed, and had a great sense of humour! The facilities were perfect for learning how to dive and we were provided with well-kept equipment for all of the dives and activities. The price was very reasonable considering the amount that was included in course. If you are looking to complete your open water certificates or simply looking for a centre to take some dives with, I’d definitely recommend Joe’s Diving Bali!!

This is THE BEST DIVING EVER for me. Martin is superb and he is so patience that taking me and guiding me during our diving. And the price is the cheapest one but it is not lowering the qualities. For sure i never dive with the most beautiful experiences and the most competent dive master ever. Definitely i will come back. This wont be the last time dive with Joe's diving. Thanks to Mbak Frisca too Martin's wife. She helped me to prepare my dive too. Seriously if you wish to dive to Tulamben especially Liberty's wreck the dive site is crossing their resort and walking just 2 minutes. And the resort is the best too. Feelin homey there. See you for another dive :)

I went diving around Tulamben with my friend on this early September. While my friend was taking the open water dive certification, I accompanied him and went to stay on this place. Friska and Martin were also very nice! not to mention I really love their dogs Niki & Lucky. I love the place, the view, the castle-like architecture concept, and the pools! with the affordable price, I got all the necessary facilities like an air conditioner, hot water, breakfast, etc. The only thing that can be improved in my opinion I think that it would be better if they have a bidet/water gun near the closet. Coz we Asians definitely need bidets! lol. But the overall experience was excellent! 5 out 5!

Hello Adjoyy, it was a pleasure to meet you, and we are glad that you enjoyed your time with us. We will also consider to install waterguns close to the toilets. So far we were focused on German guests and they have no idea how to use this waterguns. We hope to see you again.

It’s really such a superb and amazing experience with Martin & Ka Friska. They’re really really kind and helpful. I came here first to try Discover Scuba Diving and a year later I’m enjoying my time here during taking my SSI open water. Everything about this place makes me feel comfortable, the resort is very huge and beautiful plus the course is very fun! Highly recommend to everyone and will definitely come back again to Joe’s 👍🏻

I contacted them in the last minute of my trip and got a very fast response. All ini all, the whole place is very unique and I really love the tower where you can see the Agung Volcano and around. My room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and everything ran well. The room also has many sockets so it really helps for those who bring camera and other electrical stuff. If I could suggest anything, it would be the toilet and front door lock. Even though it wasn't very big deal, I personally like to have a bidet on the closet. I also think that it would be better to have some lock key for the front door (they provide safe box though and during my stay I felt very safe). What's even better is that you will be accompanied by very good dogs, Lucky and Wiky. However, the highlight from my trip to Tulamben was the diving with them. I did Advance Adventure Course with Martin and some fun dives with Friska. They absolutely gave us the best service one could ever ask. I felt fun and safe all the time and they were good spotter too, I really enjoyed the macro/muck diving. In conclusion, it was obviously worth the money for the room and diving. The people there are super friendly and will make you feel like home. Looking forward to going back!

Hello Cahyo, Wiky and Lucky are missing both of you already. Thank you for the very nice feedback and I can give the compliment back. It was very nice to meet you and know you. We are considering the doorlockers. So far Tulamben is a very safe place and we had never issues that anything disappears. I think it will stay the same but yes better to be safe than sorry. best regards from all of us.

I spent 3 days here with a friend to get SSI OW certified. Martin guided us patiently and taught all necessary skills (theory and pool session) before the diving sessions. It was an amazing experience for me to dive with Martin and Friska at USAT Liberty, Coral Garden, and two other private sites. Everything's so beautiful there underwater. Another thing to highlight is how beautiful Tulamben and Joe's Diving accommodation. Cozy and clean room, sunrise and sunset view from the castle looking at Mt. Agung, and so many stars at night. Wiky and Lucky (the dogs) will also accompany your stay here!

Can’t describe the experience better with words. Martin and Friska are just amazing! Me and and my friend definitely enjoyed our 3days course and the diving sessions. The place was homey, the service was so friendly, the view from the resort was so great - sunrise, sunset, mountain, ocean, stars (you got it all!). Even underwater, both Martin and Friska helped a lot with my underwater panic issues till the point I am okay going in with out being hand-held. If you’re into dogs, you’ll definitely be happier playing around with Lucky and Wiky. Just superb experience with you guys!!!! Can’t wait to go back there!

Dear Nindya, Than you very much for the good feedback. We were very lucky for the timing with the Open-Water course. You have done very good and soon you will feel more and more comfortable under water. For sure it is already very nice now. When you are back there are still more destinations to explore which will be hopefully soon after the Lockdown. Hello from Friska & Lucky & Wiky
