I have just spent from 26th - 29th Dec 2009 Buddah View and LOVED it. Can't say a bad thing about it. Firstly I had done my theory part of my Open water in Singapore where I live so wanted just to do the Open water dives and emailed 6 places, Buddah View was the most helpful and prompt by far.
The setting is beautiful. There is a great cafe there for lunch with a knock out view. Lovely Thai food and BBQ in the eve. My friend and I got 2 rooms. The lowest of the options with AC and a tv but not the best and WOW so cool! Bare bricks and a kind of NYC cross Thai feel on the design, really nice touches in the rooms.
Diving instruction was excellent, very clear and very safe. We had a lady called Sarah who was load so fun.
Yes ..... I'm a fan! Go and do your diving :)
