To start off, i want to point out that I have never written a bad review about any place I've been to but this was a particularly bad customer experience.
So I planned to do my advanced course with Savedra last week and had exchanged emails with one of their staff, up to this point I had no problem whatsoever.
The day I was supposed to be starting my course I showed up at 9am as requested and was greeted by the person that was going to oversee my advanced course over the next two days, I was greeted by a cold arrogant Turkish guy, cant remember his name, it started with and "F".
Anyways i had not dived in a while so whilst going through some information to get me back up to scratch, whilst trying to exchange small talk with the instructor, he was the coldest most arrogant person I have met along my travels, the "I am better than you" type.
At this stage I was thinking i'm going to be stuck with this guy for two days over 5 dives and was not looking forward to it at all.
I was finally saved by the medical form, I have a slight back problem, which would require me to see a doctor, but the doctor could not take me in until 3pm which meant I could not dive that day, so I decided that I would switch schools, do my doctors appointment that day through another school and start my dives the next day, even when he told me that I could not dive that day he had a smirk on his face as if he was happy about the whole situation.
I told them I would not have enough time to do my course if I could not dive that day just so I could get out of there asap.
I did randomly meet another dive instructor from the dive shop, a blond english girl and she seemed very friendly, so they are probably not a bad place to dive but if you are going i'd advise you to ask for one of the other diver instructors, it might save you a few days of unpleasantness.
