I spent 2 weeks in West End after a few weeks on Utila. The rooms at Splash are nice, clean and comfortable and the restaurant is very good. However the dive shop was pretty poor - I'm a rescue diver and found the dive shop very unfriendly. Their customer care was lazy, they have a lack of attention to safety (no buddy on dives/ poor maintenance of equipment and lack of planning at dive sites). I have done hundreds of dives and know that dive shop quality varies. I found them to be running short dives without clear navigation or planning - on one dive the instructor and half the group descended whilst the rest of the group was still on the boat. I found their approach to be lazy and haphazard. I only did two dives with them and then went over to reef divers which I thought was amazing. Reef divers were really organised, friendly and popular. I was really disappointed with Splash dives and as an experienced diver I know what to look for in a dive shop. Please do your research, check the size of groups, the equipment and navigation skills. Also check out dives shops to meet the staff and find out about their approach/ attitude and communication skills. I found splash dives to be quite rude, lazy and unprofessional. Their approach to diving is unsafe.
