“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I had the most wonderful experience at GTA. I did the Adventure trip with them, which was incredible--cliff jumping, rock climbing, snorkeling, repelling. It was perfect day! I ended up also staying at GTA hotel in the dorms, which were some of the nicest dorms I have ever stayed in! I didn't want to leave Koh Tao, Linzi and the whole GTA crew treated me like I was family. I totally recommend this place for any one who wants an adventure. I think I will go back in June and dive with them!!

“AWESOME!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We are sooo lucky we had the chance to stay at Goodtimes there was a group of 7 of us that took part in all activities... Rock climbing, abseiling, UV snorkelling, tubing, wake boarding, open water certificate and advanced diving! Every single activity was worth every penny and it really did make our experience in Koh Tao amazing! We left to go back to Samui and after 1 day were back at goodtimes as we missed it so much! The staff are what really make this place amazing, they're like a little family and genuinely want you to have a great time (no money grabbing!) A special mention to Bjorn who is by far the best diving instructor on the island !! And Dan, Linzi, Matt, Wilco, Vigo, Chef, Steve, nicky, Dennis, Ben and all the lovely Thai staff! Thank you thank you thank you, lots of love the 7 Londoners! Xxx

Hi there and thanks for leaving us such a fantastic review.

Your group were honestly a complete pleasure to have staying with us and taking part in our adventures - and you pretty much did them all, good job! There were definitely some 'grouper faces' among the team the day you all left, so we were super happy when you came back from Samui to revisit us and stay for longer.

We hope you will continue to revisit us and keep in touch. You will be welcome back any time. I will make sure all your kind comments get passed on the the staff you mentioned - and especially Bjorn (he is pretty awesome!).

Thanks again, and we hope to see you all back here sooner rather than later.

Many thanks and all the best from the whole team.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Great dive Master.
Great dive Sites.
Very individual lessons and dives. Group of 4 people to make this individuality possible. Boat crew and other people in the shop also just awesome. All in all a really great time. Definitely going to do at least some fun dives after getting the open water license!

“Brilliant! The whole of the gta staff are fabulous!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

This was my second time staying at the GTA hotel and diving with them and it certainly won't be my last. My husband and I were greeted like we were family. Linzi was wonderful, nothing was to much trouble. Unfortunately my husband fell ill before we arrived and was unable to dive. I was nervous about going by myself but Matty my dive instructor filled me with confidence and I buddied up with a very nice young man, Chris, who was very witty and amusing. Being a small operation GTA makes you feel part of a team, more like being with friends then just being another customer.
Thanks GTA!

Hi there, and thanks for taking the time to leave us another excellent review. We're really proud that so many of our customers come back for repeat goodtimes, and it means a lot to us that you feel so comfortable here.

I will make sure your kind comments get passed on to the staff you mentioned. Its funny you mention your dive buddy Chris, he actually left a review saying pretty much the same thing about you! I hope you guys will keep in touch and buddy up for more dives on future holidays. Diving is such a great way to meet new and interesting people.

I hope your husband recovered quickly and the rest of your trip ran smoothly. No doubt we will be seeing you both again soon - we seem to have you addicted to our little piece of paradise :)

I recently did my open water here. I would never normally wright a review but these guys deserve it. They where so friendly and helpful and I enjoyed every second. Our instructor was Bjorn and he was amazing, he was on such a level and was a pleasure to enjoy his company. Would definitely record good times to everyone!!!!

Hi there and thanks for posting a review for us, we appreciate you taking the time to feed back.

Your group were such fun to have around, we all enjoyed getting to know you guys. And you were true Goodtime Adventurers - diving, climbing, abseiling, watersports and UV night snorkelling. There was just no stopping you!

Rumour has it you may not have been so impressed with Koh Samui and are all on your way back over to us? We are all hoping this is true!

Hopefully see you sooner rather than later then, all the best from the whole team.
