I have just completed my Open Water qualification with my 20 year old son. The whole experience was fantastic. The prices were far lower than larger more impersonal schools. The trainers, Mark and Bex, were very professional but fun. There are instructors from all over Europe working here so the feel is relaxed and friendl. The sites were beautiful and...

It was my sisters first time and she was very nervous, but Natalie made her/us feel very safe - so she managed without any problems. Diving in a small group of two we had all...

The attention each of them gave to our small group of 3 divers regarding details and the...

If you're looking to get your open water diving certification I would highly recommend Sunshine Dive Resort. The staff at the resort are all very friendly and accommodating. The class sizes are usually quite small. When I went I was the only student, so it was like having private lessons. My instructor (Anna) was fantastic. Not only was she very...

It was 400 baht only on a Monday. It was worth for the location mainly. No Wifi tho :( Room was airy and clean. Toilet was just alright. Staffs were ok. Best is the chairs looking out to the sea! Wish toilet was flushing one instead of having to pour water manually
