I did my open water with Deep Blue. They are a small shop (groups will not be more than 4) which allows you to have almost one to one attention .Also they are quiet responsible, experienced and friendly. It was great for me as I was apprehensive about the open water and having such a personalized atention made me relax and really enjoy it. With your lives in your diver master's hands I'd rather dive with a quieter shop and if you want to party you can just go down the road .Talon, Henry, Andrea and Jasmin are not only great instructors and dive masters but also awasome people . Diving with them was safe and really fun. They make you feel part of it . As for the free accomodation I staid in a dorm (I believe if you are a couple they will do their best to put you in one of the private rooms) for 5 nights and ended up extending my stay for another 5 nights ! Communal kitchen, free wi fi, great bar / restaurant. I would definetly recommend the school to anyone.
