I've come to Sunshine for doing my Open Water course, stayed on for the advanced course and came back for some more fun diving a week later. The resort is perfectly located in quiet but beautiful Chalok Baan bay, with direct access to the beach and in immediate proximity to restaurants, convenience stores and a couple of bars. The Sunshine crew are a very friendly bunch and fun to hang out with even when you're not diving. Diving courses are conducted in small groups (max 4 people), in a very professional and yet fun manner. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday with some good diving, don't look elsewhere but go straight to Sunshine. Sunshine is a fairly small diving school but co-operate with Ban's, so if you want to go to a particular dive site (e.g. the Chumpon Pinnacle), they will be happy to organize the trip through Ban's.
NB: If you're looking for good food, go to Taraporn restaurant next door, or the Buddha view BBQ ... the Sunshine restaurant guy is a little bit grumpy and you find better Thai and Western food elsewhere ;)
