“Awesome dives and people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

I rarely take time to write reviews, but i'll make an exception this time to make sure i can pass on my appreciation to the team at Mayan Divers.
It's been an amazing diving week with a highly professionnal crew. Kim, Eduardo and Mark are knowledgeable, friendly and incredibly service oriented. I couldn't expect more from a 5 stars Padi centre. What an awesome overall experience! I recommand this place to everyone planning to go diving in Roatan.

“Jack P "best week of diving in 20 years!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Just returned from the best week of diving I have experienced in 20 years! Perfect weather, calm ocean conditions and the abundance of life on the reef in Roatan combined with excellent full service from Mayan Divers, under new ownership with refurbished dive boats and friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Our dive master Mark had 18 years of experience diving in Roatan and knew the reef like the back of his hand, pointing out all the usual turtles, rays, eels etc. and the unusual creatures such as pipe horses during relaxed pace diving.

We have been working very hard at making improvements to the facility and also to the boats, so we are thrilled to hear you noticed the steps we have been taking in order to make your experience here a comfortable and enjoyable one!

We couldn't be happier with all of the staff here and are so happy you feel the same!

Looking forward to diving with you again next year!

“Amazing dives, amazing people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The owners care about your experience & will make sure that you have a memorable one. Silvia, Mark & Jeaneau are Divemasters that really know the reef & where to find the ultimate beauty & sealife, not to mention Mark can pass time between sites with some good jokes:) All we had to do is show up with gear & the rest was taken care of...very sweet! Certainly the dive outfitters on the island have much competition, but Mayan Divers has recruited the best Masters on the island & world, so you will always be amazed.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

We choose Mayan Divers because of it's reputation and proximity to the Meso American reef. It came highly recommended which obviously is very important but especially so since we were first time divers.

As I was with my young adult daughter safety was critical for me and I was more than pleased to learn that our dive master Jeannot was very experienced with over 10,000 dives! This gave me a lot of confidence and we quickly learned that diving is a lot easier than we had anticipated.

The diving was incredible with many cool dive sites just minutes away - great coral and tons to see - even more fun than we expected.

The best part of Mayan Divers is the people. Everything is operated professionally yet owners Kimberly and Ed are really fun and genuine felt more like friends. Definitely a great vibe, great fun and great value. We will be back to Roatan and diving with Jeannot and this exceptional operation.

Happy Diving! Michael and Samantha

“Great people -- great diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

My family and I had a fantastic time diving with Mayan Divers. Kimberly and Ed were wonderfully friendly, the equipment was great (better than Belize or Cozumel) and the dive masters (Edwen, Silvia, Vernon and Jeannot) were friendly and knowledgeable. (BTW, Elken was a great captain, too.) The reefs were beautiful. The fish were not as bountiful as in Belize but there was something interesting on every dive. We're fairly new to diving (this was our third trip) and everyone was very patient and helpful. By the end of the week, my diving had improved a lot. I'll definitely come back to Mayan Divers the next time we go to Roatan.
