Other friends went to another Caribbean island the same week we stayed at the Carambola Resort and dove with Mel and Greg at Sweet Bottom.... They were bragging about what a great time they had, but when we said how attentive the staff at Sweet Bottom was... how we did dives with just my husband and I, sometimes a 3rd... More

My boyfriend and I took out first vacation together in St Croix. I am a master diver and he has never dove. He decided to give it a try and Sweet Bottom made it a wonderful experience. After completing his pool training we did a shore dive and even thought my boyfriend was a little nervous his instructor worked with... More

What a happy surprise to find Greg, Mel, and their excellent crew onsite at the Renaissance Carambola property. Hotel shops are often only fair, but this is an excellent, independently operated PADI organization that I would recommend to anyone. A couple of highlights included our *successful* search-and-recovery dive for my lost Gopro camera, their happy-to-accommodate carrying of equipment when someone... More

As an apprehensive, returning but not yet certified diver, I approached Diving again tentatively. Greg created an incredibly supportive experience for me with the Discover Scuba experience and I found myself loving diving again thanks to his coaching and leadership. The shop was clean, the people were well organized, and the equipment in terrific shape. Greg and Mel create a... More

I have not been to Sweet Bottom yet but I earned my certifications from Mel and Greg a few years ago and they are the reason I'm going to Sweet Bottom. When starting my research of the area I saw all these wonderful reviews for Mel and Greg and my heart swelled with happiness that so many people have found... More

One of the primary reasons we chose the Carambola was because Sweet Bottom was located on site. We wanted to do some diving and love the convenience of a close dive shop when we are on vacation. The Sweet Bottom folks were awesome -- laid back, helpful, and very friendly. We had lots of diving options as they do all... More

Loved this place! Greg and Mel are friendly and knowledgable. It was like I'd known them forever. Greg went the extra mile to help me fix my BC; When he couldn't fix it, he dropped it off at a shop that could. I also got a personal one on one night dive with Mel who showed me a ton of... More

This was my first experience ocean diving since becoming PADI certified. I was a little apprehensive, but the folks at Sweet Bottom dive shop were great! They were very knowledgable and helped me get over my apprehension and enjoy my first dive off the wall. It was so great I went two more times. I would highly recommend the shop... More

Our family took advantage of the convenient location of the Sweet Bottom Dive Center at the Renaissance Carambola during our recent stay in St. Croix. Our youngest daughter (8 years old) took the "Little Bubblers" class. This was an introductory dive lesson in the pool for younger kids. She ended up being the only one enrolled that day and got...

While on or stay at Carambola Beach resort, I decided to do the "Discover Scuba" package, as I have been interested for years to try it. It worked out that I had a one-on-one session with Mel. It was incredible. She was patient in the pool with plenty of time to practice and get use to the equipment. She was... More
