Well done team! I really have nothing much to complain. I enjoy my stay here for 3 nights and diving activities. I like the way you guys organize the dive trip. It's like a small picnic with friends. Going places, meeting interesting people, you have it all here. I personally feel that you guys really attend to my needs. I would recommend this interesting place.


Spend a week over there was amazing. Lola and Ivana and all staff were great ! don't forget to scuba with them and and spend a dinner out with them You will always remember !


+ dedicated, passionate, helpful staff. Will answer all of your questions and help you with everything - from printing boarding passes, to arranging shuttle buses. - security? What security? There is one key per dorm. You can bet that no one uses it. The policy is to leave the key in the doorknob. Guests are recommended to leave their valuables with the staff. But the doors are open most of the time, regardless of whether anyone is at the desk. - WiFi only works ~25% of the time.

Unfortunately, I never actually stayed here. I hadn't realized the plethora of dive shops/hostels that littered the main dock area. Only eat at the Scuba Junkie restaurant if you're hankering for "Gringo" food and outrageously expensive alcohol. They have the market cornered, with the nearby Giant selling WARM beer, and NO refrigerator in The Junkie, except, of course, in their bar and restaurant! Rooms and staff at Junkie were awesome, as were all working across the street at the dive shop.
