Very friendly teacher and staff, we were 4 people at the open water course, had a lot of fun and always felt save. Nice place to stay with some bars and restaurants along the beach. You can find a spot to chill and relax, but you can also meet people and go out for a drink.

Having travelled extensively throughout Asia for the past few weeks, it was wonderful to find a beautiful, peaceful cove to soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy a few dives. I heard amazing stories about Koh Tao and Chalok Baan Kao in particular - a step out of the busy scene but also close enough to get a... More

I liked the personal approach and the environment. My teachers were really great, as well as the accomodation. After getting my padi open water, I directly went for adventure diving :) As I met some nice people, I went for fun diving on my last day

I participated in the February IDC run by Sunshine and Bans Diving resorts and it was fantastic. Both Nat Hunt and Guillaume Fargues were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to provide extra help. Every aspect was highly organized and well presented, ensuring that every candidate received enough attention and strengthened their skills to a level well beyond... More

My partner and me finally decided to do an open water course. It took us very long to do this decision as we were a little bit scared about this underwater thing. But everyone at Sunshine, especially Katharina, took away our worries and swaped it with confidence and curiosity. We had such a great time doing our open water. Everything... More

I was very specific about what I wanted from an Open Water instruction course; I wanted it based away from the party area, with free or cheap accommodation included and with small teaching groups. The operation in general: Kim bounded out of the office with a big smile and instantly sorted everything from accommodation to course commencement in about 30... More

Sunshine Divers was one of my favourite dive shops to dive with ! I recently did my advanced course here in January. One of my favourite things about this dive shop is that it is right on the shore of Chalok Beach. It's amazing how you could be sitting in your "classroom", watching videos and learning about diving, as you're... More

The staff is unfriendly and not helpful at all. In our room, it was not possible to close the door to the toilet and the Fan was awfully loud and broken. When we realized, we could only change to a far more espensive room. The Internet did Not work and when we asked What to Do, we were told Not... More

A perfect place to learn to dive or just for some beach time. All staff are wonderfully friendly and the whole place has a very young and welcoming vibe. Room are basic but clean an reflect the price. Overall a relaxing stay with some brilliant diving and dive instructors. Thank you to everyone.
