The new look lodge is excellent. The communal kitchen idea normally puts me off but they have arranged everything brilliantly. And that pool and deck - really wonderful place to relax after diving. Some of the rooms can be a bit noisy due to heat exchange pumps, but Leanne was happy to move us when we asked. Would definitely recommend...

Craig, Shona, Cammy & their amazing team have created a fantastic operation & gave me some of my most memorable diving experiences to date. For me, as a solo traveller, the whole team were faultless in their welcoming & friendly outlook & to be greeted on arrival (firstly in Umkomaas) with a Braai full of ribs after 16 hours of...

We had a wonderful time staying at Planet Scuba! Yes they have air conditioning-rooms! Feeling Bem-Vindo and Relaxed! The staff were all very friendly and always helpful. Centrally Located in Ponta do Ouro. Walking distance to beach and restaurants. Enjoy the view from the deck of beautiful Ponta Beach.

Plant Scuba is under new management and a great job they are doing. The new owners Craig, Shona, Leanne and Mike are all lovely hosts and very welcoming.

The communal area is great with views over ponto and a nice pool, fire pit and braai area. Its centrally located but the restaurant next door seems to become a nightclub sometimes which may not be so nice if you want a quiet holiday. The room we had was very damp and we could hear everything in the next door...

The accommodation was great. We where with 9 people, had the big house, which was very spacious and clean. The terrace and swimming pool where also good, furthermore the location was great as well. Besides the accommodation the hostess of this hotel was not hospitable at all. She is not able to communicate with guests, she was lying about the...

Let me start by saying that Planet Scuba doesn't do Scuba. They do cater to scuba divers though. Our little group stayed in the newly purchased house next door that sleeps up to 14 people. We were comfortable with 7. It has a self catered kitchen, it's own sitting area, a nice back porch and dining area, a pool and...

こんにちは、みなさん。 私は、プラネットスキューバでダイビングをデビューしました。 初めた時は好奇心ともちろん不安がたくさん。でもプラネットスキューバのスタッフがしっかり私達をお世話してくれ、安全にダイビングを教えてくれました。 私はオープンウォーターダイビングをした後、もっともっとダイビングに興味を持ち、アドバンスアドベンチャーをサブリナさんとしました。 海中の素晴らしい、サンゴ礁と魚にやみつきになっちゃいました。 プラネットスキューバのスタッフはみんな親しみやすく、親切です。特にサコットさんという人は一見怖いですが、ダイビングでは信頼できる人です。 Hi there. I have started to dive at planet scuba. I was curious and of course anxious when I was diving ! But planet scuba staff looked after us and then took us diving very safely !! After open water diving I was really interested and felt like I wanted to do more so...

Planet Scuba in the picturesque, laidback village of Ponto d'Oro in Mocambique is the perfect place to stay if you want to do some scuba diving in this area. Nice rooms (most of them with en-suite bathroom) and a spacious living room area, beautiful outdoor space with two small swimming pools and a great lounge/dinner area. A well-equipped kitchen is...
