What a great relaxing 5 days all made possible by excellent staff especially the ladies at reception and the dive master (Kyle) we 'adopted' for the 8 dives we had. It is quite apparent that the manager Gareth runs a tight ship and he is tireless in ensuring that everyone's needs are attended to. Thanks guys for an amazing stay.... More

Coral Divers is a lovely holiday venue with friendly helpfull staff. I would definately go again.. however their problems with the overly invasive monkey population needs to be dealt with together with Ezemvelo management. The pleasant free atmosphere was definately clouded by the everpresent monkeys always snatching food.

The only negative to an otherwise awesome diving trip is the condition of the communal ablutions as most of the doors do not close properly, the shower heads need maintenance, one toilet was continually leaking, one toilet seat was broken, otherwise we are very satisfied.

It is the best place to stay if you want to have the perfect dive. Everything is very well organized, and make it very easy and confortable to the divers and non-divers. So you just relax and enjoy the nice food, the braai area, the good company and probably one of the best dives in your life!

Our two kids ventured under water for the first time having completed their DSD. The instruction was professional, thorough and relevant. The dive off 2 mile next morning - a triumph. Both kids want to complete their OWD certification asap. Whilst the instructor and Divemaster were great, some of the junior staff forgot themselves, failed the Coral ethos and embarrassed... More
