I can't rave enough about the staff here!

Took a catamaran snorkel tour with my 10 year old daughter. Boat staff was great, and the snorkeling ok for the conditions (pretty windy so poor visibility). The poor rating is due to the business end of this deal. There are lots of people all over Barcelo selling the same thing. You get told the price (1/2 price for kids).... More

The staff at Dressel Divers couldn't have been nicer. I had Guy on my refresher course and Vicky and Emma on the first dive I went on. They were all professional and helpful before, during and after the dive. I was a little concerned that on our dive, neither my husband's or my depth gauges worked. When I let the... More

My 12 year old wanted to try diving so at the pool in the resort, Dressel had a "Try Scuba" sign set up with a few BCD's. Jose was a wonderful and patient demonstrator. Most of the reason my son got so excited and not intimidated. From the initial class instructor Gabby who is equally as fantastic took my son... More

Very professional organization with knowledgeable guides. We did a local snorkel tour from Barcelo south of Playa del Carmen off a catamaran in a marine park. Fantastic variety of reef fish, lobster, rays and turtles. Crew and guides, Wilson and Juanito, were awesome. Also did all day snorkelling tour to Cozumel. Same great experience but a very long day.
