We had heard from folks in El Tunco to make this our place for diving and lodging. Upon arriving the staff worked hard at selling us but as days followed the hidden costs mounted and the housing provided was also home to cockroaches and little lizards. The actual diving instruction was fabulous, I had a teacher named Rimus but others I watched or ease dropped on didn't seem to be as friendly or good at teaching. There appeared to be a disconnect between the dive shop/housing and the attached lodge despite us being told we could use the amenities (which were numerous including a gym, pool table and deck. We were not made to feel especially comfortable (with the exception of the instructor) with our stay past the first day when we were being sales pitched to. The dive gear was new and kept in good condition, but finding appropriately fitting suit and mask was made difficult. The instructor ended up letting me use his mask. Overall, good place to dive but the establishment feels inconsistent, poorly managed and do not expect good lodging if their housing on site is full.
