Really really enjoyed my open water diving with Crystal. I had never done any diving before, and not the greatest swimmer.
Everything was very clear. Shannon was very intense to begin with (he is Ex US Military) but by the end the whole group got on very well with him. He has a certain teaching style, but it worked very well with me and the group. He wanted to ensure we were able to be safe without supervision.
The accommodation was basic, but very nice. not problem with cleanliness, and convenient for the early mornings!
A small tip, if you are in koh phangan before hand, you can pick up a discount leaflet from somewhere(somebody else in our group did this, but I did not, so cannot give much more information!)
