never use their Dc before. I think most of the DC welcome divers and they ar very friendly. You only need to worry whether they have enough tank to cater for your dives.
Now is the opening season and many divers are heading to the islands. Better call and check whether they are pack or not on the day you plan to use their service.
Its a bummber if suddenly we go there and they told us that their tanks already book for open water students or for groupies that already book with them.

Hi Dorothy,
As Run put it, all the dive centers are friendly and warm. People suggesting a specific dive centers are probably because they are used to that centre. And true, now is open season and big groups are coming in for open water etc. but if you plan your trip and book well in advance it should not be a problem. The two dive centres you mentioned are in two different villages with both offering different environments. Cost wise..generally it's almost the same. Dive sites.. Well.. The southern DCs might bring you to the southern dive sites whilst the northern ones will bring you to the more popular north ones. So in conclusion, try it out and see which strikes your fancy :d. Hope this helps.

Well explained by expressodupio and I think it's a good answer to your question Dorathy which I hope will make your choices easier.
