I'm not the guy who gives reviews, but it would be nearly criminal and nothing short of unjust if I did not to recognize my instructors at Ban's. Dive Instructor Neil, Naz, Opal, Rob, and Ellie are world-class, professional, and FUN! Ban's is the biggest diving resort in the world, so I imagined large classes and to be just another...

I've been to Ban's Diving Resort in december 2016 together with two friends. We went there to do the PADI Open Water course. Before we arrived we wanted to do the course in Swedish, but when we met the english instructor Neil Giblin it felt so good. We did the course in english and it was easy to understand because...

I would like to say thank you very much to Ellie Jessie and Mirta Kljajo for a great experience. We had limited time but really wanted to do the Open Water course and they made it happen. Bans is a smooth running school with years of experience and courses available in a lot of different language. I would highly recommend...

Bans Diving Resort is a really good place to learning to dive. Me and my friends are from Sweden and we had a english instructor, Niel. We are not so good in English but the language and the course was really easy to follow and we understood almost everything. Niel explained the things we didn't got until we got it....

Ban's diving resort is a perfect place to stay in koh Tao. I went there for my open water PADI and the experience was incredible. I was offered the possibility to do the course in French, and it was great. I felt well prepared, and Benoit, my instructor was really nice and trustworthy. You'll meet a lot of helping people,...

Okay so we went for dinner, me and a friend. Let's just cut to the core, the service here is really really bad. They got a couple of kids walking around that just don't care. They just sit around and play with their phones and joke around with each other without paying attention to any guest. Now you can say...

I (we) had the BEST dive instructors and masters!!! Neil, Ellie, Naz, Opal, and Mimi absolutely MADE this experience for us. *applause* (more detail on them below) Ban's accommodations were great. When taking the dive class you get a discount. We had an aircon room with our own bathroom and balcony overlooking the pool for 700B a night. The resort...

I stayed here with my sister and a friend to do our PADI open water. There were 5 of us in all for the course. Dan McGladdery was our instructor and he did a fantastic job. He was really friendly and knowledgeable and put us all at ease. We felt really secure and confident in our learning throughout the course....

We decided to booked this place and take PADI open-water diving course by recommendations from friends and Tripadvisor's reviews. Ban's Diving Resort is the biggest one in Koh Tao. We can get free accommodation with the course but we had upgrade to the better room for privacy and relaxation. The extra charge for air-con, hot shower, big room exposed to...
