TESTIMONIALS

However the best Part of the whole vacation was the diving in the blue bay. The local diving school has a verry friendly staff and the amount of fish you can see in the lagoon is amazing!

My main interest was scuba diving, and the dive school was brilliant. The dive leaders were excellent, led by the lovely Christelle Besson. They made me, a new diver, feel really safe and comfortable and I ended up going out with them most days. I ended up taking my advanced PADI course as I felt so confident. The dive sites are really close to the hotel so you don’t spend ages in the boat getting there and back. I could not recommend this team more highly for both new and experienced divers

Diving world, which is situated at the hotel is amazing and we booked the family package of 20 dives. If we had more time we would have definately done a whole lot of more dives. Christelle and the staff there are great

I can honestly say that the dive staff were great. Nothing was rushed and safety was #1 priority. We also saw amazing marine life at only 8m – Octopus, stone fish and Sting Ray!

We had a fantastic sighting of a fair sized octopus, saw a trumpet fish with another fish in it’s mouth, saw a big moray eel and took off our fins and walked in the stunning beach sand between the reefs. The dive master, Wilby, who took us on the dive was brilliant, full of fun and an excellent diver.

I am a qualified master diver and enjoyed diving with Sweety. She knows the reefs and tried so hard to accommodate all the various diving expectations.
