Sadly as an experienced diver, I found I left this dive centre very disappointed. The majroity of staff were friendly and it was very clean but that's about it.
As I hadn't dived for 6 months and 1 weeks, I was told I had to do a refresher which personally I thought was over the top, and it felt like it was nothing more than a money making exercise. Spending 4 hours answering questions, running through every conceivable discipline (pretty much my PADI again) in a swimming pool isn't what I expect considering my experience and considering that anyone who had dived 6mths ago wasn't made to do it. A check dive yes, but this was OTT. My partner hadn't dived for 3 years so I fully understood why she was asked to do it.
The guy who took us through the 4 hour refresher, who I believe has since left, was very cocky and sure of himself, almost arrogant and rude.
The next day we arrived early in the morning and it was a bit of a free for all. As we weren't staying at the hotel and hadn't been diving with them before, we had no idea where anythnig was or how we were expected to gather our equipment. Rather than our guide or a member of staff showing us, we were lucky to find someone doing their instructors course who was able to advise us on what to do etc.
The boat was very small. It didn't have a toilet despite us doing a 2 dive morning trip which is fine for men, but for ladies it may be a problem and should have been explained prior to setting off.
Once at the dive site, there were a bunch of people spear fishing, yet we continued to do a "wreck dive" which to be quite honest was the most boring I've ever done. The viz was poor and even up close there was nothing of interest - a few dead fish on the sea floor, a very poorly turtle and concreate blocks which had been dropped on the boat damaging it.
Still we held out hope for our second dive, only to be told it was the same site! Once again we went down and saw nothing. We ahd been planning on doing a couple of dives, but after this decided our time and money would be better spent elsewhere.
