This was my second trip to club cantamar. The first in about 2004, and the second in 2011.
The dichotomy of this place ihe difference between the hotel and the dive operation. On the whole the dive operation is very good. The boats are roomy and comfortable, and the setup with dive lockers, wash stations etc is very good. The dive masters are very competent in english.
However, the hotel operationis awful, and it has descended from a reasonable place, somewhere that will never have my return business. Although our visit was in low season, we had to spend our first night in a regular room. Despite having booked and paid for a junior suite but the room wasn't ready. The ac in our suite was down for 2 days, and we were shuffled in and out of two other rooms.in two weeks we had a total of 5 different rooms.
We booked a full board (breakfast and supper) holiday. They didn't tell us that there wasa separate menu for full board dining, and wanted to bill us extra for having eaten our first meals a la carte. We make note that we were the only diners in the restaurant.
The owners, who live onsite, refused to listen to our conerns, or even to discuss them with us. We left several messages at the reception, and they simply told staff to ignore
While the diving was good, there are other providers in la Paz.
I would suggest that it is not worth the risk of staying at the hotel. Unless, of course, you want to hve poor service...
