I spent 5 days + 4 nights staying, diving, and eating at Evolution and it was all fantastic. I'll review the diving and restaurant in the appropriate sections, but as far as accommodation goes, Evolution was fantastic. Really clean, comfortable, spacious rooms on the beach. The location is perfect- accessible to Bounty Beach (it's at the end of the beach)...

Had an amazing stay here to get our OWD certification. The rooms were nice and clean, the staff were amazing, and the diving was out of this world! We did the PADI E-Learning before arriving and communication with Evolution was always fast and responsive. At the end of our OWD course, we even did the Thresher shark dive and saw...

Three of us took the advanced Open Water Certification with Nick as our instructor. Nick was VERY knowledgeable and excellent in transferring concepts and instructions. The dives were awesome - we dove Monad Shoal a few times and Thresher Shark sightings were a regular occurrence. The staff were friendly in and around the dive shop and Craic Cafe. After certification,...

After a warm welcome we felt that we were in good hands at Evolution to do our OWD and our first, positive impression was right. Everyone was nice and motivated. Our diving instructor was an amazing teacher and he took enough time to explain/show/practice everything properly. We felt safe and comfortable during all our dives (course and fun dives) and...

We spent several days here and had a fantastic experience! The staff are warm and welcoming, diving is great with knowledgeable, attentive guides, and the restaurant/bar was very good. If you're going to see thresher sharks, I definitely recommend a stay at Evolution.

Pro's the room was nice. The grounds and bar area are also very nice. The staff in were all very pleasant, unmotivated wait staff but still not bad.

“Rooms opposite the Craic house are nearer the beach and are by the dive assembly area. Rooms in the set back block are quieter and bigger.”
