Excellent instruction for Open Water Certification. Staff was friendly and generous with their time and explanation through coursework, scheduling and follow-up. Maggie was fantastic and I felt safe and in control the entire time. We also took an excursion to Cozumel and it was excellent. 8 dives in all and ready to go back. Highly recommended.

Where to start-From being greeted at the counter by Mishi and the rest of the staff, things were welcoming and low stress. Even though we probably made it a bit complex by asking to dive out of 2 locations-Cozumel and Paraiso, the response was "No problem. It is already all set up from our previous emails." Mishi coordinated all of... More

Everyone with the group was friendly and very helpful. They had free scuba try outs by the pool for those not sure if they want to dive.

I did my PADI Open Water Scuba Certification with Dressel Divers at Iberostar. The instructors and facilities were excellent. I felt safe, well taught, and had a great time diving. I dove with Richie, Ryan, Paula, and Mylene and had a great time with each of them. I can't wait to go back and dive with them again!
