Make sure you book one of the 5 cottages facing the beach if you want an amazing view of the azure blue waters ... friendly and helpful staff ... the scuba diving was really amazing ... alcohol is not easily available on the island in general ... ask the hotel before you book if they have got a permit as...

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Barefoot scuba resort. The place is just a minute from the beach. The cottage cost us Rs. 3000/- per day. They had the resemblance of a ten when you enter but sufficient space. Loved the huge, semi circled bathroom. It doesn't feel too luxurious, rather rustic. The sun goes down pretty early... More

Had a beautiful time at Barefoot Scuba.. Chose this as our preferred choice of stay at Havelock for our Honeymoon in the last week of May.. Saw the great review of this hotel on Tripadvisor and booked this hotel.. Booking cannot be done through online portals, you need to individually mail them.. The response is quick, and booking was very... More

I had been with barefoot scuba. Not only the coral reefs and clarity of water. They had really reliable trainer and the equipment. Time they spend with you is also amazing. You might have to wait for your turn for approximately 30 min bit the experience you get is amazing... Must do if you are visiting Andaman.

Although we didn't stay here, the place was great. After spending the day on beach 7, walked up for some snacks. The food was to die for with icy cold beers too. The service was really good too! Came a few times, both times getting an up close and personal viewing of Raj, the Andamans famous elephant.

I had my stay at scuba resort, at sea view cottage, which is beautifully built. A serene beach is just at back side,at your door step. Aside this, not a perfect stay for honeymoonrs. No room service available. Though you can takeaway your meal to the room from restraunt. Which is understood as this is Scuba resort, not a holiday... More

An excellent PADI dive centre. The schedule for the Dive course was well planned and executed. I found the food in the Andamans to be good overall and the Cafe did not disappoint. Service at the Cafe is slow in the morning because everyone has breakfast just before going on the dives, but nothing that cannot be solved by some... More

I would suggest to either pre-book or spot book water sports at this resort. The trainers are really professional and they make you feel very comfortable before going under-water. The best part was they made a CD of my under-water diving at just a minimal of Rs. 500 only which contains beautiful photos of marine life and you enjoying the... More

Barefoot scuba was all that we expected and a little more. We stayed in the non AC sea view cottage (sea view + bugdet+ cottage). It is a steal. They have an execclent PADI diving centre with very well trained and friendly instructors. The well placed hammocks provide a safe haven to spend time at any time of the day.... More
