Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Brilliant dive school, learnt lots and feel comfortable and confident in the water. Would recommend. Sara was a brilliant teacher for the open water, nothing was too much trouble. Alex and Nina were also great on the fun dives after the course, loads of fun and a great experience!

I had the best time at Ban's Dive Resort in Koh Tao! The room I stayed in had a great view of the pool, which was super lovely to wake up to every morning. But the real star of the show was my diving course with Beau. She was an amazing instructor—so patient and knowledgeable. I felt really safe and had a blast exploring underwater with her. The resort itself was awesome. Everyone there was friendly and helpful, and the place had such a chill vibe. If you're thinking about diving or just want a cool place to stay in Koh Tao, definitely check out Ban's Dive Resort. It's not just a hotel—it's an experience you won't forget!

Spent 4 days doing the diving course here and stayed two extra days! Planned on doing the normal die but ended up doing the open water course because of how reassuring the environment here was! My instructor was beau and all in all it was a life changing experience. Must visit, must experience and must stay here through the process!! Will def come back. Cheers !

Awesome stay and Open Water Diving Course at Bans! The resort is amazing and my instructor Beau was great and helped me to feel confident under water. I would recommend getting PADI certified here. I loved the beach front location and the dorms were clean with excellent aircon. Access to the pools was also great for relaxing after a dive
