  • Beto is the man! I absolutely loved fun diving with such a laid back yet professional and knowledgeable DM. I had a fantastic experience with Altons overall. They have a fun and relaxed atmosphere...  more »

  • A very professional dive shop, managed by serious people. Everything is well maintained and i felt secure and worry free. I'd definitely recommend it. Make sure to buy a 2 liter water bottle when you arrive and use the refills at the bar, it's cheap and environment friendly. The bar is great, the lunch menu is tasty and affordable. The bar will be closed very early some evenings of the week, but you can go next door. The guests kitchen is very basic, but usable and not too messy. Not ideal if you plan to cook everyday. They usually have a very limited supply of private rooms, so make sure to reserve in advance if that's what you want. You can clean and dry clothes on premise for free (yourself), or take it to the lavanderia 5min away. They have many courses in parallel, so you won't have to wait before your first diving class, that's not the case everywhere.
  • Alton's is amazing. Intended to spend 3-4 days here and ended up spending a week. Will definitely be coming back. Great people and great diving at the best price. Good mix of diving and socializing. Really felt like part of the family by the time I left. All of the staff was awesome but Sofia and Beto went out of their way to make me feel welcome! Would highly recommend.
