Sunderland Scuba Centre Dive Trip

Hi Marcelina, can I just say what a good time we had in Gozo, the hotel was good and the food was fantastic, everyone enjoyed the diving and we are all looking forward to booking another trip with Ultimate Diving next year, again many thanks to you and your team

Gozo

I would rate the holiday a nine out of ten. Both hotels were very good and the resort was beautiful and peaceful. The pickup and drop off from the airport was also good with all the taxi drivers on time and helpful. I was a first time diver and the dive centre was great, with good facilities and very helpful staff. Sue my instructor was fantastic, meticulous but also entertaining. I was on my own so I found the evenings a little quiet but it is perfect if you are traveling as a couple or with a group of friends. This is the only reason that the holiday did not get a ten out of ten. I had a great holiday overall and would recommend the resort and Ultimate Diving to anyone.

7 nights at the San Andrea Hotel with 5 days diving with Moby Divers .

This was a great holiday experience. From the conversations with Marcelina at Ultimate Diving and the paperwork received to confirm the holiday and all the travel details to the seamless airport-taxi-ferry-hotel transfers all was exactly as described. A very friendly hotel literally a stone’s throw from the water and some fabulous restaurants a couple of minutes walk scattered around Xlendi Bay (The Boathouse food was excellent). Moby Dives just around the corner with friendly and helpful instructors and some great one on one tuition. Well paced training with a mix of classroom work; pool and sea dives and a PADI Open Water qualification at the end – what more could you ask for?!!
