Comments Ten point scale---Villa Aldora 10+; Aldora Divers 10+. Perfect accomodations...7 nights in Cameron Suite with full kitchen including full size fridge, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, all pots, pans, dishes, and flatware & glassware,bath, one king, one queen, 2 twins. Huge tiled floor room with a/c, ceiling fan and floor fan. Immpecably clean. Great maid service. Cost-$878. Fantastic value! Hats off to Steve for his over & above hospitality, town knowledge, diving knowledge, and for taking us to the store for groceries, beer and tequila:) Everyone associated with Villa Alsora goes far and beyond what's required to make their guests have an enjoyable stay. I cannot state this enough. Diving with Aldora Divers was the absolute best of any shore based dive operation. Safety first, super friendly and knowledgable DMs...special thanks to Memo, Edgar, Dario, and Ali for their superb dive leadership and hospitality. The steel 120 cu ft tanks enabled us to make most dives 80+ minutes. Used NITROX 32 for 1st dives and 35-36 for second. Tank flls average 3400+ lbs and NITROX reading were exceptionally accurate. Diving was as fun as diving gets on the various dive locations. We especially enjoyed Devil's throat, Santa Rosa, Maricabo, Palancar Gardens, and Columbia Pinnacle. Great viz, strong currents, wonderful aquatic life. Aldora Divers arranged for us to dive the ceynotes on the mainland with seemless coordination with the dive shop in Playa de Carmen. Superb dives there as well. I cannot imagine returning to Cozumel and not staying at Villa Aldora or diving with Aldora Divers. They deserve your business and trust. They earn it. Thank you to all.
