We just returned from a great trip to the Renaissance Carambola and while we were there our kids decided that they wanted to try scuba diving (ages 14 and 15). The staff at Sweet Bottom was fantastic! From start to finish they were helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. They had the right amount of humor and management to work with the... More

We did our final certified diver certification during our stay at the hotel. Staff and our instructor Baley are amazing and very helpful. Our last dive was amazing !!!!!! Hope to come back and do more dives with these guys.

These guys bend over backwards to make sure that your experience is personal, safe and as easy as possible. The shore diving within 100 yards is excellent, and their capable divemasters will make sure that you're able to have an easy and safe dive. They're patient and attentive, and the dives are comfortable and amazing.

Sweet Bottom absolutely has the best staff and diving experience. Relax at Carrambola Resort with Greg and Mel taking great care of you. Dive Davis Bay with Bailey or any of the crew and see it all! Don't forget to get the famous Gonzalo's autograph! It doesn't get any better than this!

Shop owners Mel and Greg could not have been nicer or more helpful. I went on 4 shore dives to the wall with their dive master, Gonzalo. He was excellent! We had a great time. Each dive was special in its own way. It was such a pleasure to be able to walk out of my room at the Carambola... More

The dive shop is located on the Resort of Renaissance Carambola Beach. I have never taken a lesson from a resort or shop before, but having previous dive experience, I wanted my wife who is " frightful" of the whole breathing under the water thing, to take a course. If your the person who wants learn a little diving ...DO... More

We made a day stop here from the cruise, just wish it was longer as I would have loved to have dived more with this company. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The dive was awesome with so many things to see. Our first and only dive unfortunately, we saw Turtles, Kjesar Fish and plenty of sharks. Don't... More

Our 3 adult children took the resort course and we parents took the refresher course. The instructors were excellent and took us on a great shore drive. I appreciated the 2:1 student to instructor ratio. I highly recommend. Much better than other resort courses we have done on vacations where instruction is in the ocean rather than the pool!
