The week in Ponta hosted by Underwater Explorers has been a dream since Covid hit. I felt the stress of the last three years melt away, waking up to the sea view from our room. The rooms can do with a bit more of a dusting/vacuuming, bathroom renovation, but they have done well to maintain the diving service quality which was the main requirement for this trip. Herb and team are super friendly and willing to assist whatever the needs are. Highly recommend supporting them as soon as you can. You will not regret diving or staying with them and sharing a drink at the bar at sunset.

my sister and i spontaneously decided to stay a night in ponta and we absolutely loved our stay at the underwater explorer. it is set right on the beach, the rooms are comfortable and warm and the whole place is beautifully decorated and there are a bunch of dogs running around♡ we didnt check out the bar but it looked super cute, the kitchen is big and equipped with everything you need. mosquito nets are provided,there is even a pool with ocean view and all the people we met were super chill and friendly. a wonderful place🌈

What a great experience. So welcoming. Had a wooden hut looking out on to the beach and it was great. The ensuite working well, with hot and cold running water at your fingertips, including a fridge and mossie nets. There was a commune kitchen and we were able to use the facilities as needed. Friendly, and would love to go back.

We had confirmed a booking for the Safari style tents on the beach at Ponta do Ouro where we had stayed previously. When we arrived at transpired that the person who had confirmed the booking had nothing to do with Underwater Explorers. Despite this being the busiest time of the year Martin and his team managed to arrange two rooms for us. All the they were not as luxurious as the Safari tents they were very comfortable. The entire facility was immaculately clean and the staff, without exception, very accommodating and helpful. In addition because we were not divers we were charged the off-season rate. We will definitely stay there again and next time will have a better idea of the facilities available so that we are better prepared. Anybody who wants to stay in that area whether diving will not are recommended to contact Martin and his team.

I stayed here in November 2021 and January 2022. The accommodation is unfussy, basic in fact, but it's simplicity is it's charm. Mozzie nets and fans are really all you need. The rooms are hot during the day but there's no reason to be in them then, especially since there's a brand new pool at the bar, both with breaker views. Couldn't ask for better value, right on the beach, and it's a vibe! If you want aircon and silence this place isn't for you, but it's perfect for dog-loving, chilled party people.

Busy upgrading the facility after covid. Very affordable and comfortable accommodation. Great kitchen / lounge area. Small things that really count, every appliance that you need is available, free coffee all day, wifi signal good, clean and well maintained ablutions. Best position in Ponto, right on the beach. Our hostess even went as far as bringing peaceful sleep over to our table when we she saw us at dinner and the Hot Pot Restuarant. How is that for 5 star service,? and as Arnold S said " We'll be baaaaaak ! :-)

Underwater is the place I escape to - my home away from home. Third time I’ve been there and it just keeps getting better. The staff are warm and friendly, always greeting you with a smile. The facilities are functional and comfortable, with everything that you need. I always have the best sleep, with the ocean right in front of my door. The diving is absolutely fantastic- with the dive staff doing everything they can to make your dive experience comfortable and most enjoyable! Fully recommend Underwater for anyone wanting to experience the Soul of Ponta de Ouro.

This trip was our first time in Mozambique and we couldn’t have picked a better centre to stay at for diving. The instructors were fabulous and even helped patiently with a few dive 1 jitters. They were in constant communication during our travel to the site and were on hand with restaurant and activity recommendations outside of the diving. Looking forward to coming back to complete my advanced course!

We had such a fabulous time staying at Underwater Explorers. Herb and Elaine are such welcoming hosts. The staff are super friendly and helpfull, ready to attend to all your needs.The entire setting is just amazing. The kitchen is well equiped and the entire place is always neat and clean. It is so convenient having the dive centre rigth by your accommodation with direct access to the beach. Thanks so much for making our stay so memorable. Tommy and Minet
