“Good food & sunset viewing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

With so many places to choose from on Sairee beach, this place is just the right mix of good food with a wonderful setting right on the beach, perfect for watching the sun set.

“not the place for fun divers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

When we first entered the dive shop we spoke to a lovely canadian girl about doing some fun dives, she was helpful and based on her friendly nature we booked a dive package with them, shame we never saw her again. The next morning we were ready and waiting at the dive shop....and waiting, all staff members ignored us when we arrived, granted they were busy getting gear for people, but even my attempts to get someone to make eye contact so we could get gear ourselves were fruitless, I said 'excuse me' to more than 1 employee and was ignored on numerous occasions, one Irish girl, Sarah was particularly rude and this wasn't an early morning thing, later on the boat she was rude and confusingly arrogant. In my experience when you arrive at a dive shop, someone from that dive shop greets you, asks you to wait if necessary or helps you, not completely ignores you. It quickly became apparent that unless we booked to do a dive course with them, we weren't important, we always got the worse gear (as we were usually served last, and on the boat, asked to set up our gear last which left us with no other choices for regs, weights belts etc. as the boat was full) we weren't giving them 'enough' money I suppose so we didn't matter. Even when we did a nixtrox course later (the instructor for this was just ok, she didn't put in effort above what was required and wasn't interested in being friendly, but she got the job done) we still didn't earn our own dive computers which we were told we should dive with whenever we are on nitrox. It seemed the people who were getting there open water or advanced certs were better treated, so if that's what your going to Koh Tao for then this place might suit you.
