Comments Dressel Divers is located at Iberostar Resort (all-inclusive) at south end of the island where all the best dive sites are located. The diveshop is right on the beach w/ good rental equipment & if you're nitrox-certified, then no extra charge for it. Their boats are well laid-out w/ plenty of room & dedicated camera bucket. The divemasters are some of the best I've had on Cozumel, & I've been there many times but this is my first time diving w/ Dressel. Aaron & Edgar are excellent DM's.
The staff & all who work there are very professional & friendly. I will be going back.
Oh, Iberostar ain't bad either!

I just got back and I totally concur. The resort is gorgeous and Edgar is a great DM. Amy and Scott too. Shop service (Lee and Sylvia) was great and professional.
