I am working in diving for over 7 years, managed successful dive shops and dived in various places. I saw many operations : some awesome ones, some not too great ones, but I never ever saw any dive shop as poor as Penida Dive Resort before. It is simply shocking how terrible their service is! Luckily we have our own... More

You have also have friends like cockroaches or mold. It was not clean! The food was bad, really bad and expensive. And you... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel was pretty run down. The rooms were not very clean. At night I could hear rats chewing in the ceiling. The bathrooms are small, door didn't close properly, and no hot water. The restaurant seems abandoned at times. There is nobody to give you menus or take your food order, but nobody tells... More

We did two dives with Penida Dive Resort and had a very bad and unsafe impression: Equipment: Looks very old and worn down. It is quite hard to find fitting equipment for all divers. Safety: On one dive the instructor clearly did not see that one diver surfaced just after the beginning due to a lack of weight. She had... More

We stayed there for five days and came back again for the last couple of days of our holidays, because the atmosphere is so relaxed and peaceful there. The rooms are pretty basic and maybe a bit overprized. Among the three of us, we had four diving courses, which we enjoyed tremendously, thanks to the extraordinarily beautiful diving spots and...

A friend and I came on a recommendation from a travel blogger review one year ago. The resort itself was ok, food was good. The Indonesian staff were wonderful but the European staff were quite unfriendly. We originally came to dive and ended up walking out. Both of us are experienced divers and the lack of care we saw given... More

We stayed here eleven days during volunteer work on the island. It was a little bit of a retreat. While we did eat most of our meals at the volunteer project, we did eat here twice. The food is fairly good but I wouldn't recommend the Czech Burger as it was deep fat fried. There are other Czech specialities that... More
