Some of the friendliest staff we have ever met on a vacation. Be sure to ask for Dave Barlic, extremely knowledgeable in the underwater realm. After an intro to scuba I am now completing my PADI certification and plan to return for a dive or a few!

My husband and I dove with Dressel Divers at Barcelo four years ago. We liked the operation then, and the Dressel Divers location at Iberostar Paraiso was even better. Well organized operation, friendly people. Kim, our dive master, was professional, skilled, and personable. I forgot to pack meds for sea sickness and decided to wing it since it was only... More

My girlfriend and I got open water certified here in April. The dive team is very good, in particular Jenny and Kim were very good at caring for us as we both got quite seasick on a couple of our dives. The sites are great, lots of wildlife including a lion fish, sea horses, and a huge barracuda! Only one... More

Excellent 2014 Spring Break. Travelled with 3 families including 4 17-18 year olds. Nathalie was very helpful answering all questions before pre-paying. Pre-paying is really the way to go as it saves 20%. Paul was very helpful upon arrival and got our group into the water quickly. All staff did an excellent job providing pre-dive plan instructions, equipment help (rentals... More

Fantastic team, I did my open water dive course here and despite a rocky start the staff encouraged me to continue,and I'm pleased they did. After a difficult first dive "due to a storm" I'd decided that diving wasn't for me, but instead of accepting that the staff encourage me to try again, even going out of there way to... More

I had to complete 4 dives for my referral to be a certified scuba diver. And what better way to do it, in the beautiful waters off the coast of Playa del Carmen. While on vacation I discovered a dive shop right along the beach close to my hotel. I'm so lucky to have found Dressel Divers. Everyone at this... More

Dave Barlice was a really helpful instructor. The pool trial made me really want to pursue scubaing further. He even stayed later than his shift required to let our group finish our trial.

I first tried scuba diving with Dressel Divers last year at this Iberostar and really enjoyed it, so when we returned to the resort this year, I wanted to get my open water certification.
