My friend and I went to Koh Tao without booking anything in advance, but ended up finding Sunshine Resort and were gladly able to stay and start our open water diving certification there. Our instructors, especially Natalie, explained everything well and in great detail! She was all about making sure everyone was always on the same page and never gave...

Great resort with a nice view and a really good ambiance. The rooms are clean and spacious. We came for a OpenWater course. And we had the best time with our instructor Bnooz who is as professional as friendly. The rest of the staff was also helpful and kind. Definitely a place to recommend to discover diving in Koh Tao!

Please note this review concerns the dive operation, not the hotel; they are separate entities. I recently spent 5 months (Feb-Jun 2013) with Sunshine Divers obtaining my professional level ratings. The course director Natalia is an unstoppable bundle of positive energy. Her ability to always be there for everybody is astounding. The DM program at Sunshine goes beyond just the...

This review is for Sunshine divers and not the accommodation. Having walked along the beach dropping into different dive shops for information on the open water course for my 10 year old son, we decided on sunshine divers. From the word go everyone was very friendly and professional and I had every confidence that they would take good care of...

Very friendly people, excellent diving courses, nice rooms and everything right in the middle of paradise (also know as Ko Thao). We started the course right away and had a hell of a lot of fun. The room was very nice and clean and the instructors real professionals. Thanks Natalie and co!

Over the years I've returned to the Island that is Koh Tao, and always to the "use to be great" Sunshine Divers. This years return left me disappointed, Sunshine Divers is not what it use to be in my opinion. They use to leave to dive from their very own beach Chalok Ban Kao but dont seem to be offering...

Thank you for personal experience at Sunshine Divers. Yes, the island Koh Tao has changed considerably, however, Chalok Baan Kao still remains a quiet and relaxed beach front resort option. Apologies for any inconvenience during July/August 2013, as it was the high season on Koh Tao. We still hold the policy of maximum 4 students to instructor as advertised. However,...

We spent six fantastic days on Koh Tao with our three teenage/adult daughters, and it was the highlight of our Thailand trip thanks to the wonderful team at Sunshine Divers, who patiently coached us through our PADI Open Water Cert. Course Director Natalie is an inspiration; even when things were busy she always had a friendly smile and took time...

When I went to Koh Tao on the Ferry I had no idea where to take my diving course. Until I met a great dive instructor, Emma, she was very helpfull and told me about her divingschool and other among the island. I decided to give it a shot and go the "Sunshine", and boy I did not regret it...
