I did my PADI Open Water Diver course there and I was very happy with the service. If you book the course online you get free accommodation for the length of the course, which is great as you save some money and you do not have to worry how to get to the resort and back. Of course the rooms are very basic but they are clean and free of charge. There are also some really nice rooms in the front of the hotel right next to the beach, but if you want one of these you of course have to pay for it. The instructors were very nice and knowledgeable, it was all very professional. The dive sites are nice and the prices for the dive courses are rather cheap, so I can definitely recommend it to everyone who wants to start diving!
