We had a great stay at Ban's with my wife. We are already licensed divers so went there for "fun diving". Although the dive center is quite huge, you never feel crowded because all is pretty well organised. Dive guides are great too (we had the chance to dive with Thomas, one of the local "frenchies" :-)) and really caring....

This review is a true reflection of our stay at Ban's Diving Resort in Koh Tao, Thailand. I have written this review in three parts; accommodation, restaurant and diving. We originally booked to stay at Ban's Diving Resort in Koh Tao at the end of a three week trip around southern Thailand and it's beautiful islands. From check in to...

I did the open water diver and stayed at Ban's for four days! I took the German class and had an amazing and professional teacher. For everyone doing the German class I recommend to do it with Lena, she did a great job.

This was my 3rd visit to Bans dive resort and I was left a little disappointed at the end of my stay because of a couple of things listed below: Pros: - Friendly DM & Instructor, handled the dives well considering some problems encountered during the dive with some AOW students who still couldn't descend properly or keep buoyant? -...

Ban's was a perfect place to stay, near the centre, close to shop bars and Fish Bowl bar which is on the beach and part of the Ban's complex. We stayed for 13 nights. The rooms are clean and big, we had a ground floor room looking out over the infinity pool, there are another two pools mainly used for...

We had Marc Heney as our instructor. He was extremely helpful, fun and patient the whole time and got along with everyone naturally. I really enjoyed the whole experience and can recommend Marc to anyone who wants to dive. The hotel staff was also friendly, the room was clean and comfortable.

Don't book a Jungle house. It is a bit far from the beach and the area you have to walk through is smelly as sewage water is pouring by the path. We stayed for 3 nights and they did't clean the room even once.

Day 1 of our scuba diving class and I couldn't even snorkel, by day 4 I was a qualified scuba diver! Neil and Andreas were the most amazing instructors and were super patient and supportive!

“Depending of your need (quiet or not), ask for a room close to the dive center (more noisy) or far from the dive center (more quiet)”

“Rooms near infinity pool are a good size, not great if you have mobility problems, as the walk up from the beach is steep.”
