Mike again looked after us brilliantly, finding us fish even in the most difficult weather! The diving was again wonderful, extremely professional and the staff amazing. Hotel team looked after us very well. There is an increasing number of great restaurants close by, our favourite being Coco Anjou! See you all next year!

Very nice staff, decent accommodation and lots of diving! Tented cottage was a cool place to stay, uncomfortable chairs on porch though!! Beach is good especially when calm otherwise a trip across the Island to Beach 7 in the afternoon will not disappoint. Resort is perfect for divers.. Restaurant with decent breakfast served from early for before diving.. Better options... More

Bare foot Scuba has a wonderful place to stay just near the beach shore. it is one of the most economical stay in Havelock Islands but still gives you the luxury you want. I would really recommend this resort as it is affordable but with the luxury you want and secondly they have one of the most amazing scuba diving... More

Barefoot has very experienced, trained diving professionals making the adventure very safe and extremely enjoyable. Barefoot offers basic and advanced courses in scuba diving. All the courses are PADI certified. The sea facing cottages are really that. The cottages are clean, self-sufficient and comfortable. The staff are friendly and caring. Barefoot looks after your every need, right from pick up... More

We had a pleasant stay in Barefoot Scuba. We stayed in the 2 level air-conditioned cottages facing the sea. Lovely cottage, only one thing lacking was a handrail to hold onto while going up as the steps are quite steep and could lead to an accident specially in the night if one is visiting the toilet which happens to be...

The barefoot scuba has the best boats on the island. The team is good and fun - their equipment is well managed. Loved My fun dives with them to Johnny's and Dicksons... Made my day. Thanks to KK... the sweet dive instructor.

Though it's owned by the same company that owns the gorgeous resort on the other side of the island, this place (resort is somethin else) should definitely be avoided. Untrained if not unfriendly staff, bed service, broken tents, name it and you will find it here. The beach in not good for bathing either. However the Scuba team is the... More

Where do we start? It was like coming home, even though our last visit was 4 years back. Oli, Anne and the rest of the diving team made us feel at home. This time we completed our Advanced Open Water course, had a few fun dives, snorkeled around South Button Island (don't miss it), did a nature walk to Elephant... More
