I recently noticed a scathing review about ABWonderdive. REALLY! Of all the places I have dived AB Wonderdive has been my favorite.
I have seen many testosterone fueled reviews on trip advisor and perhaps have written a few myself but, this review is totally unwarranted. My memories of AB Wonderdive are very clear. The first impression was of Alice greeting me with a smile so wide she could have swallowed a banana sideways. I immediately felt extremely welcomed.
Secondly Bjorn was offering to take my dive bag so I needn't worry about equipment. I stayed in the room next door to them for more than a week and didn't hear any noise whatsoever. They appeared to me to be a happily married couple running a family business.
I am not a very good diver but they never made me feel inadequate, instead they helped me improve my skills enormously during my stay. It is simply not in their nature to act as described by that reviewer.
As to a lack of flexibility, when we wanted a night dive it was immediately added to the schedule. When one of our members complained about the dive being to early and therefore too crowded with other divers the dive time was immediately changed.
Alice and Bjorn are just running a small business. They employ good staff who love them. Why attack such a wonderful company in such a merciless way? The criticisms are both unfounded and unwarranted the person making such awful comments needs to go into the room of mirrors and take a good long hard look at herself.
I plan to return to AB Wonderdive again this month and look forward to seeing everyone again.
