Certificate of Excellence
Our resort caters to divers giving a homely feel from the minute you walk in. Mi casa es su casa! Our accommodation is comfortable with a rustic feel so you know you're by the sea and on holiday. Having the bar restaurant and dive centre on one premises means you get to roll out of bed and into your wetsuit with a vibey chill area after diving. You can hide your car keys from yourself for the duration of your stay and mingle with our friendly staff and fellow divers.
