A quick trip to experience the new rooms and of course the diving! This was my 5th stay since 2011 with Evolution. The steady improvement of facilities, the service has always been outstanding, from the two original fan rooms on the beach to the 14 room A/C block is fantastic. The room are large and comfortable. The small water heaters do a great job of providing a warm shower after diving. The diving temps were 24-25 degrees a little cooler for those used to diving warmer water. A private balcony provides space to sit outside.
The staff as friendly as ever. Well done guys!

Stayed: February 2017

Excellent from the word go enquiring about diving/accommodation.

Arranged a private transfer due to time constraints which was smooth; arriving to a warm welcome mid afternoon

Rooms are very clean and everything you need; much more than your standard Dive resort !! Little things such as filtered water, mini bar, air con etc go a long way.

Restaurant attached is super, mainly western dishes but majority are cooked better than back home ! Breakfast was included in my rate and is top notch...again the little things such as he banana & mango fruit salad that comes with all breakfast choices :)

Only negative is cost of the private transfers...if you have time do the taxi/bus then ferry option; saying that it's a private boat and taxi that runs smoothly so maybe worth the price if it's in your budget

Would love to come back !!

Thanks to all the friendly and helpful staff

Magnificent part of the world and as someone who had never dived before, what a great place to learn. Great, friendly staff, our instructor Nick was excellent, facilities were amazing, location spectacular and would recommend to anyone. The Monad Shoal dive with the Threshers is a must!

Spent 6 nights here because I had read that the dive instructors were good. I can confirm that all staff is great, from reception, restaurant and the diving staff. The rooms are simple but clean. The restaurant serves really delicious food. I can highly recommend this place if you want good diving while chilling at a cosy place.

Room Tip: Would choose a fan room as you don't get much extra but an AC for double the price.

Evolution was all I was expecting and more, I had never dived before and my instructor was really good teaching me the basics. Hotel staff was always making sure I was comfortable and happy. Great food at the restaurant with good prices (comparing it to the prices on other places in the island). Great diving equipment and very qualified instructors. Good organization and logistics to fit all the divers from 0 experience to professional. I would gladly come back for more dives at this place!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms next to the ocean, so you can wake up with the sound of the morning waves!
