Crystal Dive Resort is a fantastic dive school! It is quite large, with many instructors, but from beginning to end, you will be taken care of! The quality of teaching is top notch, especially if you get lucky and have Heath Stewart as your instructor. His knowledge and experience is extremely helpful with feeling completely safe in the water. He... More

My girlfriend and I did the PADI Open Water Course with Crystal, and I can truly recommend this school. We were a team of 4 students and an excellent German teacher, Steph. Crystal is a rather big diving school with many teachers of different languages, several boats and excellent diving equipment. Yet, the group size is kept small to offer... More

My bf and me did our open water course with Elora at Crystal Dive and stayed in one of the free bungalows that are part of the resort. The groups are up to six people per instructor, but we were really lucky and were just three, later two people with our instructor. Elora really did an amazing job, I was... More

Me and my best friend did our PADI open water course at crystal and were not disappointed! We were very lucky and had Attila as our instructor, I don't think the experience could have been any better than what he made it to be. He was very patient and calm under water and on land which is very important as... More

Hi, me and my brother were completed the open water diver PADI course. The guys at Crystal dive school were really awesome. The equipment, the schedule of the course, the ship, the diving places were just perfect for us, as beginners. We got a native hungarian speaker instructor Attila. He is the perfect combination of a well qualified diver and... More

I am overall very satisfied with the experience I had with Crystal. My review goes specifically to the open water and advanced diving courses that I took with them. My instructor, Heath Stewart, was really outstanding, it was because of his knowledge, experience and attitude when teaching, that I decided to move forward with the advanced open water intermediately, something...

Booked my open water PADI here at short notice and found it to be an excellent experience. The resort is ideally located right next to the ferry port. So easy to find. The course was really good, our instructor was amazing with an excellent teaching style. The facilities are ideal for a diving center with the boats located next to... More

I have done my open water and advance in Crystal (Koh Tao) a couple of weeks ago. The experience was great, my group was fantastic and Fralex, our instructor, is wonderful, always chill and good fun. I think he loves his job and you can notice it. When you do the courses with them the accommodation comes free. It is... More
