Had a great experience diving with the very competent and friendly staff at Dressel Playa Paraiso. They made my dives very enjoyable and found them to be a great team from the people who work in the shack to the kit guys, boat crew and of course the instructors. Thanks again!

Visited the Iberostar Tucan resort where Dressell divers are based, the team are great and very friendly. Vivi at the front desk is extremely friendly. We did our Scuba diver course which is just below the open water course. We didn't bother going round other dive centres to barter on a cheap deal we was more concerned about safety and... More

Dressel Divers is a great company no matter what paradise location you go to. I went in Cozumel in March 2014 and dove with them. I also just came back from Playa Del Carmen and I enjoyed a week of diving there too. The staff is great, so accommodating, fun and knowledgeable. All the dive masters there are really really...

Wanted to dive for the first time since my honeymoon 13 years ago. Looked at what Dressel had to offer and decided to get my Scuba certification. I would have done open water but time and money were not on my side. So I went on two dives both led my David Barlic. Let me tell you. He is an... More

Theo provided an awesome briefing on the way to snorkel with the turtles at Akamul and then to a cenote. The Advanced Scuba course I... More

We were staying at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya in June 2014 and did the parasailing through Dressel Divers. They are located right on the beach of the resort. The people at Dressel were wonderful. My 2 teenage sons went parasailing and my husband was able to also go on the boat and videotape the experience. Everyone was very friendly and... More

I used Dressel Divers 2 days while I stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. It was a short walk from my building (51) to the dive shop. The first day was just an afternoon reef dive. My divemaster was Vincent and T-O (divemaster in training joining us on her day off). We did a relatively shallow dive with a lot... More
