The tented cottage was a very pleasant surprise, surpassing my expectations the moment i set foot in it. Please check out the bathroom at the time of check in -... More

We stayed at their other property on Beach #7 but did our snorkelling with Barefoot Scuba. South-Button Island and Tamarind Camp were the snorkel locations. It was a brilliant experience. Our guide was Meer, a real jolly good fellow. It is good to have a amiable company and he took good care of us- two non-swimmers. Once inside the water,... More

We stayed in a 'Sea Facing AC rooms'. The beach is very quite and very beautiful there with the beach view from the room. Room has a living room and bathroom in the groundfloor and bedroom and balcony in the first floor. We went for scuba diving from the same resort which had partnered with PADI.

I stayed at their luxury resort (Barefoot @ Havelock), but dived at this one. Fantastic dive school with an excellent team of dive guides and instructors. The location is excellent if you like restaurants and shops close by, and their accommodations are for budget travelers and scuba divers. It is still worth a look if you're happy with cheap and...

I stayed at Barefoot while completing my Open Water. They have cozy little huts for 300 rupees a night if you are diving. It's basic, just a bed, light, and fan, but what more do you really need? Our instructor Raoul was incredibly nice. The guests and staff hung out together the entire trip. The ATMs weren't working and they... More

We had booked air conditioned sea facing Duplex cottage from which the view of the blue ocean is magnificent. The beach is literally a stone throw away from the cottage. Both Rooms, ground floor and upper floor room was very clean and are well maintained. Had a great time staying there

After a tedious and lengthy ordeal, we finally decided to book this resort for two nights at Havelock. We chose the air-conditioned Sea Facing Duplex Cottages which provided splendid view of the blue ocean in the front. As per other reviews in tripadvisor, there are no sure short choices in Havelock, but after visiting this resort, we were pretty happy... More

Stayed with Barefoot Scuba for 6 nights and dove with them for 3 days, doing the 3 best local dives in the area, while doing my Nitrox cert. Rueben was professional and fun to have on the dive boats, all the equipment was good and felt very safe overall. Would come back here if I ever end up back at... More

I went snorkeling with barefoot, it was the most expensive activity of my two week stay at the Andaman islands and I had high expectations. But the apparatus they had was defective and dirty. If you are going snorkeling buy your own new snorkel. These guys gave me one that led to pneumonia and me having to spend a month... More
