I traveled alone and stayed at Evolution for 7 nights. I completed my open water and advanced diver PADI certifications here. As a new diver, my priority was to be safe and this is one of the reasons I chose Evolution, having read great things about the professionally-run dive shop. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Mette Hallum and DM-Trainee Allan Gill (now Divemaster!). The whole learning process was smooth and very well planned. Mette is a great coach and we spent a lot of time reviewing skills over and over till I got them right underwater. Right after I finished the courses, I was confident enough to extend my stay by a whole week and get 11 more fun dives in! Really enjoyed diving with Divemasters Weng, Gino and Jo who were great at spotting a wide variety of marine life. The boat crew (Ando, Rollie, Albert and others) were really nice and make everything so easy for the fun-diver, making sure all the equipment is fully set up and good to go.
I stayed in the Deluxe Garden view room because I wanted air conditioning. It was very spacious (especially for a solo traveller!) and well maintained. The reception and the restaurant staff will get to know you quickly and are very friendly. The bar is perfect all evenings, not too noisy but not dull either like some of the other places I saw on the island. Overall my stay at Evolution was simply perfect and a big thank you to everyone at the resort who played a part in that!
