The Hyatt Regency Hotel is actually sited on the 'Near Garden' coral reef, so you can swim straight off the beach onto the coral - the coral and fish are fantastic. The instructor (Shokry) was absolutely... More

Hi AlexRJ, "Scuba bulters" - that gives me an idea! Our center at the Hyatt Regency is situated in Gardens Bay and offers some fantastic shore diving, exclusively for guests staying at the hotel, just one of many reasons to try this hotel. Shokry is a fantastically patient, friendly instructor that is often requested - a testament to his teaching... More

The attention given by hotel management and staff was 5 star quality. Nothing to dislike about this location. From our arrival to our departure we had a fabulous time, enjoying the food and drink. The restaurants were amazing and the accommodation in general was to an extremely high standard.
