Myself and four friends complete the PADI open water divers course today, and cannot speak highly enough of Lotus. It would be wrong not to start with our instructor, Chan, who was absolutely brilliant. Fluent in English an with the patience of a saint, he made sure that none of us drowned (no mean feat) and that we learnt a few things along the way! Absolutely great guy, and all of the other instructors were friendly and keen to help.
On a three day course, after spending the first in the classroom and the pool, we had four open water dives at sail rock, a beautiful dive spot. The site was fairly crowded (being one of the best in Thailand) but the Lotus boats weren't, and the food provided for lunch was better than most of the meals that I have had in restaurants on Koh Phangan.
The max group size of four was good, and when some of the members of our group needed a little extra help, another instructor was brought in to ensure they were well looked after
All in all, can't recommend lotus enough.
