Have just returned from doing my Open Water PADI training at Ban's . I was terrified before starting but all credit must go to my wonderful , highly experienced instructor Dom who was professional and courteous at all times and in whom I very quickly found I had complete confidence . The amount of knowledge you have to absorb in a very short time was initially rather overwhelming [ especially for someone of a 'certain age' who hasn't had to sit an exam for years !] but lovely Dom was always more than willing to expain things repeatedly until it finally sunk in . Because of him , a whole new world has been opened up to me ~ very many thanks .
Finally , I absolutely must thank the unsung hero of this experience , Connor the boatmaster . It was he who very gently , patiently and kindly encouraged me to make that giant leap when I was standing at the end of the boat for the first time with a heavy tank firmly strapped to my back and several kilo's of extra weight strapped round my waist ~ without him I'd probably still be standing there with jelly legs , screaming like a baby ! Thankyou guys , I had a fantastic time !

The rooms were average, but OK for the money. I say 3* which is why i awarded 3*

The staff were lovely and helpful which makes things easier. They also speak excellent English.

The aircon doesn't work great and there was some damp in the wardrobe, but apart from this everything was good. Rooms cleaned to a good standard and was close to beach.

At night there are fireworks and really (and i mean really) loud thumping music coming pounding through the rooms. Up to you if you don't mind this kind of thing.

Bans food is amazing.

I would probably stay here again.
