It was 400 baht only on a Monday. It was worth for the location mainly. No Wifi tho :( Room was airy and clean. Toilet was just alright. Staffs were ok. Best is the chairs looking out to the sea! Wish toilet was flushing one instead of having to pour water manually

I recently complete my advanced open water course with Sunshine Divers. My experience was very positive to say the least. From the time you arrive at the dive shop your greeted by a group of young welcoming and experienced divers. If your after a personal experience and not just another dive factory, then this is the crew your looking for....

We stay at sunshine 2 and we dive with the dive club on the beach. A++ Friendly staff low budget bungallows 400b for a night and free during class. Before diving we check with each other club and for us its was perfect. They combine 1 Open and 1 Advance class so we could dive together 3 times.

Very friendly teacher and staff, we were 4 people at the open water course, had a lot of fun and always felt save. Nice place to stay with some bars and restaurants along the beach. You can find a spot to chill and relax, but you can also meet people and go out for a drink.

Having travelled extensively throughout Asia for the past few weeks, it was wonderful to find a beautiful, peaceful cove to soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy a few dives. I heard amazing stories about Koh Tao and Chalok Baan Kao in particular - a step out of the busy scene but also close enough to get a...

I liked the personal approach and the environment. My teachers were really great, as well as the accomodation. After getting my padi open water, I directly went for adventure diving :) As I met some nice people, I went for fun diving on my last day

“Rooms near the beach are defiantly nicer due to the location, but a little bit louder because there closer to the bars, but still not too loud,”
