I loved my Open Water Course at Buddha View. The instructor Jesper really made the course amazing, he i so funny and helpful. I can't imagine a better instructor.
I paid 9000 Bhat including transport from Bangkok and accommodation.
You go to all the major dive site on Koh Tao which is nice. The resort it on the South which is a less touristy area of the island, compared to Sairee Beach, where more dive schools are.
The complaints about the basic rooms... they are fine, everything is perfect except for the 100 bhat for wifi, which you can get at any restaurant down the road.
Loved my time here.
