Amazing experience at Coral Divers in Sodwana. Friendly staff and a great vibe. Extremely professional dive instructors. Would recommend the pizza next to the pool to anyone. Accommodation very clean and neat- everything you need for a totally "switched-off" relaxing adventure.

The ONLY positive thing I have to say about Coral Divers, is that the staff at the reception was friendly. The poor service and small rooms, did not even begin to justify the extremely expensive price we paid for 3 nights' stay. The room is...More

Hi Nadia, Unfortunately we do not control the whether or not the reviews are posted, but I do think that you can log in and remove your review from your side? Perhaps try to contact TripAdvisor? So sorry we could not assist.
