My wife and I have been diving with Aldora Divers since 2003.  We have both
been employed in the customer service industry all of our working lives and
have said we should write a review about our experiences with Aldora Divers
and Villa Aldora every time we have gone.
Regarding Aldora Divers, Memo is the one who gave me my introduction to
diving in 2003, that was over 250 dives ago.  He knows the business and
expects nothing but the best from his entire work force - from the dive
masters to the office staff - you will encounter nothing but the most
professional and friendly service.  On our last trip - we dove primarily
with Pepe and a few times with Edgar.  We have full confidence in both. 
They watch out for us but allow us to dive our profiles and are willing to
make any dive site that is suitable for that day happen.  On our last trip
Edgar helped us find the elusive sea horse and in the past has used his
"powers" to find the spotted Eagle Rays of Cantarell.  Pepe led
us on most of our dives in June and is capable and attentive to the entire
group to ensure that he finds the little things as well as make sure that
all members of the group return safely.  We love the boat captains as well
- we have enjoyed the professionalism of Angel and Marcello for many years
and then also was introduced to Lino on our latest trip.  They are each
attentive and safety and service minded.  Julian and Flora lead the support
staff at the office and are like family.  Memo is like a brother.
When it comes to the Villa.  Here is what you will find - someone who is
there to make sure that they do everything to make your trip perfect.  At
this time it is Brent and his wife Debbie.  At other times, it has been our
wonderful friends Greg and Kay or Steve.  They have all been the kind of
people you can count on to do more then you would ever expect anyone to do
for you in any circumstance or situation.  We love them all.  Though the
diving is terrific - it is the people we have encountered through Aldora
Divers and Villa Aldora that cause us to return again and again.
