Comments This our second time with Aldora Divers and staying at Aldora Villas. Our first trip was in September 2005 during Hurricane Ivan. We got lots of diving in prior to the storm but we do refer to it as our first and hopefully last category 5 hurricane experience. I must say that Memo made sure that we were safe and well taken care of. As it turns out on our second stay with Aldora the same divers that we had ridden out the storm with returned to Aldora too! Dave had made sure that we were compensated with free accommodations and diving for the days we missed due to the storm through hurricane insurance and we all took advantage of it. Very class operation our DM Bill was great and our accommodations were wonderful. We brought a friend with us that used Aldora Divers to get certified and was overwhelmed with the patience and superb service she received. We have dove all over the world including Thailand, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, etc. and Cozumel is the place we plan to return to often. One major reasons is not because of wonderful diving but it is because of the unique service provided by Aldora.
