I made reservations in the States and was assured by George that
everything would be handled with email and when the boat picks me
up at my other hotel! PROMISED! When I got to Cozumel I got a call
from George that I needed to take a taxi to El Presidente to
fill out paperwork and show my C Card. I've dove with Dive With Martin,
Dive Paradise, others, and they have the paperwork on the boat and
don't waste 2 hours of my time and an extra $20 taxi fare. Did the
morning 2 tank dive, they've changed to a big SLOW boat, took forever to
get to San Francisco Reef and back! They used to have 6 diver fast boats.
Then, they decided to night dive Paradise Reef, right out from
El Presedente, and simply decided not to come pick me up down at Fiesta
Americana. I had assurances 'FOR SURE, FOR SURE' George said. They
would come the next evening to pick me up for the night dive! I called
later to verify the time, talked to George again! Called afterwards
to find out what happened and George simply said they went without me!
I love going to Cozumel, staying at Fiesta Americana and diving. Been
doing it for years. Plans go wrong, things happen. George knew he wasn't
coming to pick me up, and lied! With the others I've gotten calls, not
enough people for them to go, and they've set me up with their competition,
several times. For one I had to get to town fast, jumped on a moped with
the shop guy and he took me to the pier to dive with another company!
WHAT A WASTE!!!!!! DO NOT BOOK WITH SCUBA DU!
I am about to have my 11th time at the Presidente Intercontinental

This hotel and Cozumel are favorite places on earth. yes the hotel is pricey for mexico but the service is amazing, as are the people and the food. Diving...sublime, although the reef took a hit with Katrina, dives such as Santa Rosa Walls and the Palancar Caves are still amazing. (I am a Padi DIVEMASTER W/over 500 dives.
If you go, enjoy! YOu will meet many people who have been there 3,7,10 times before for a reason!!!! Dive safely!
