I took the open water scuba course last week at the Iberostar Paraiso Dressel Divers (Riviera Maya). I really liked Esther and Geoff. Beyond being very pleasant, fun, and patient people, they were great at explaining all of the technical aspects and the theory behind everything! I was also impressed with their ability to effectively communicate underwater. I would have... More

Wonderful experience with the staff at Paraiso. However when booking online the head office kept making so many mistakes. They didn't send my documents to the Paraiso. And everything was paid for before I got there. Thank goodness for Patricia. She got everything in order once we were there. Got my Advance dive Certificate, My friend received his Open Water...

I had such a great experience with Dressel! Days before we left, I was in contact with the staff via email (Nathalie) who was able to answer any questions, recommend dives and have me fully booked before we even left for Mexico. They offer a 20% savings for booking ahead. We stayed at Excellence Cancun Riviera (approx. 25mins north of... More

We had a great week diving with Dressel Divers @ the Iberostar. The international staff were attentive, knowledgeable, and fun. Rafael sent us some great pictures! David & Ester were excellent dive masters & guides as we're all the assistants we dove with.

Dressel is the only way to go if you want to dive either Playa del Carmen or Cozumel. I went on two Cozumel dives and Armando was a fantastic guide. I did the discovery dives as I am not yet certified and I was able to spend plenty of time getting trained prior to diving and feel comfortable! This made... More

They provide a very safe and enjoyable diving environment. Tanks were consistently filled up to 3000 psi. I dove Cenotes and Cozumel with Naza, he is a great guide, very thorough in preparation, pre-dive checks and explanation of what to expect and where, so I took some great pictures. I would also like to mention Armundo, who was our guide... More

Took Cozumel tour with Dressel out of Iberostar Paraiso. Two great dives with Aaron as DM who was absolutely great. Some points to consider before you book this dive, it could be just right for you or perhaps not. If you are looking for a four dive day this is not the trip for you. If you are open to... More
