I did three diver courses with the course director her, Paul Sant. It was a great experience with plenty going on. The hotel is a nice hot spot with plenty of patrons on the beach. The dive shop has lots of retail and free coffee and tea!!

This place is easy to recommend. The staff is super nice and friendly, all equipment and facilities in good shape, excellent location on the beach, they seem to only dive in small groops etc. The dive sites were also better than I expected, so go for it!

At my somewhat advanced age I reactivated my Open Water status and had a magnificent dive at this resort. Every member of their team was fantastic. Their friendliness and professionalism have set me on a new lifestyle. I can't wait to get back. My special thanks to Mo who took the time to ensure I was up to speed. If... More

Glad I did! Emails prior to dive day to book were handled well, as was the provisional booking and later removal of one diver due to... More

I recently learned to dive at a different diving school to this one and at the time they seemed ok. However a friend of mine recommended these guys, so once I had my Padi, I thought I'd give them a bash. That was back in April and now they're pretty much the only guys I dive with in the UAE...

Did 2 snorkel excursions while others dove. Staff are professional and friendly. Answered all our questions about rentals and timings when we pre booked the day prior over the phone. Facility is great and prices are very fair. Will definitely use them again.

I booked 2 dives on a Saturday the day before and they were able to work me in despite the short notice. This was my first open water dive experience on my own, but the guys did a... More

I had never done anything like this before and was feeling quite anxious. The staff at Divers Down were very patient and really made it a personal experience for us. Our instructor Cecil was fantastic and put me at ease. I will definitely do another dive soon.
