My girlfriend and I visited Koh Lipe for 4 nights in October 2012, and chose Adang because of the positive reviews on this site. We were not at all disappointed.
We went on 3 fun dives with Kris, which were all excellent and well chosen for our level of ability (we are both newly certified). We saw lots of soft corals and beautiful fish. As dive master, Kris has the enthusiasm of a newly certified diver with the professional calm of an old hand. The perfect combination.
As for the school itself, it cannot be faulted. The masks and equipment were top quality, the speedboat was spacious and comfortable to dive from, and the atmosphere around the school was very relaxed. We stayed in one of the Eco Lodges, which I would also recommend, as you are 30 seconds away from Sunrise beach and a 2 minute walk down to the main restaurants and caves. It also meant the dives were discounted, which was a bonus.
If you're looking for diving that is safe and professional but also relaxed and fun, then Adang is a smart choice.
