leur expérience chez grand bleu diving

Hello
I wanted to write a short review after my amazing 12 day stay @Grand Bleu Diving in Sandy Bay, Roatan

I must first off say that it was one of the best diving experiences I’ve had so far

5 ⭐️ for:
🐠 Amazing 60 to 70 minutes dives every time

🐠 Full service prep for each dive! Your stuff is on the boat ready to go and they do all tank changes for you between dives ☺️

🐠 Knowledgeable staff that make safety they’re #1 priority

🐠. Amazing teachers: my 15 y/o just got OW certified with Jennifer Leigh Ziehe and Adrien Tumia.
He already has his buoyancy under control and most importantly is super comfortable under water.

🎏. The owner, Patrice Bellemare, is 100% invested in making sure you have a good time and are happy.
He droves us to and back to the grocery store and taxied us to restaurants in the west end when we wanted and came to pick us up after 😊

🎏. They offer rooms with a shared kitchen and/or small appartements with kitchens.
It’s simple and basic but all new, super clean and well maintained. We were two families and opted for the rooms with shared kitchen since we wanted a place where diving was the priority.
An « Eat/dive/dive/eat/dive/repeat…» without all the fluff, so it was perfect.

🎏. The only small down side at Grand Bleu Diving is that you’re not directly on the water but behind the diving house/installation.
This being said, the balconies are nice to sit outside and they are planning on making a bigger lounging shared space soon.

🎏. On the plus side, the Sunken Fish restaurant right next door has a big dock with a 2 floor covered lounge space we could go to chill with drinks and sometimes have dinner after.

🐢🐡 🧜🏻‍♀️. FINAL SCORE?
My rating for Le Grand Bleu Diving in Sandy Bay Roatan is:
🧜🏻‍♀️ 5/5 for Diving
🧜🏻‍♀️ 5/5 for the staff,
🧜‍♂️. 4/5 for accommodations.

I will change it to 5/5 when they finish building the lounge area and the new dock which should be very soon so I am told.

Une équipe fantastique et très sécuritaire. Nous étions des plongeurs avec très peu d’expérience et ils ont fait en sorte que notre séjour soit extraordinaire. Nous plongeons en petit groupe donc pas de stress. Le ratio plongeur / instructeur est très bien. La durée des plongées est assez longue. +/- 60 min. Si tu consommes plus vite, ils t’accompagnent au bateau individuellement pour laisser le temps de plongée aux autres. Autant les installations pour dormir que le bateau et le dive shop, vraiment que du positif et plus encore. Merci pour les merveilleux souvenirs!

We went to Grand Bleu Diving at the end of july. Wow, what a great place for divers. ALL the staff are great and they do everything to make our stay as good as possible. The rooms are very very clean and the dinning area is also very clean and well kept. The diving is excellent and the equipment is also very good. We had our best night dive ever! It was our first time out of a all inclusive and now, we prefer that way to travel. Pat the owner is a great guy and it shows by his staff and the services that he offers. Again, i have to praise all of the staff, starting from the divemasters to the maids. Always smiling and ready to help all the time. Thank you Grand Bleu Diving for a wonderfull week.

 
Service professionnel. Personnel attentif. Prise de rendez vous facile. Approche différenciée.Je vous recommande chaudement.

La famille du Grand bleu sont des hôtes extraordinaires! Ils s’occupent des transports entre l’aéroport et le grand bleu, ils sont là pour nous apporter en ville ! Ils nous font vivre une expérience de plonger hors du commun en fonction de la température. Les bateaux et l’auberge sont impeccable mais le plus important c’est l’attention que porte le propriétaire, les dives master, le capitaine ainsi que les personnes sur le terrain et à l’auberge.

How lucky am I to have found such a place!
Staff is great. They went the extra mile to make this American girl feel safe & secure.
Did the Open Water and Advanced Open Water certifications and I could tell that the Masters wanted me to be a good diver, not only get my money and give me a certificate.
I had an amazing time in and out of water.
If you choose to stay on site, know that the apartments are brand new, well furnished and super comfortable !
I highly recommend this place!
Can’t wait to go back 👌

Patrice and Adrien are the most attentive and fun divers on Roatan. They go above and beyond what a dive shop does. Small groups, excellent dive spots and a ride here and there is needed. I would use them again if I ever visit Roatan again. They spotted a hammerhead, giant turtles and a ton of great fish. Both are so professional and they really made us feel special. You guys are the best! Thanks for a killer trip!

My dad and I stumbled across Grand Bleu Diving, looking for a good place to snorkel. The team took us under their wing and brought us out with the dive team so we could snorkel at the top of the reef. We came back the next day so I could take the Discover Scuba Diving course with Adrien. My dad got a refresher course as well, since he hadn’t dived in 31 years! After that, we were hooked and we returned on the following day for two morning dives prior to leaving the island.

The dives blew my mind with unique routes through pristine reefs. We saw an incredible diversity of marine life, with a giant eagle ray as a personal favorite. The whole experience was personalized with three well seasoned and incredibly friendly diving instructors and support staff that all worked together as a family. Even though most the divers are bilingual with preference for French, they easily switched to English to keep us included. The operation was efficient, safe, and a whole lot of fun.

Patrice really cares about his divers and runs a wonderful family business. We ran into Patrice and his family out in West End, and they graciously gave us a ride to our restaurant since we were on the wrong road. As I told Patrice, he saved us twice! Couldn’t more highly recommend this diving shop. I will be returning as soon as I can!

Personalized diving service according to your experience and what you would like to see. Small diving operation owned by an experienced diver suited for people that want to dive and explore. Brand new boats and small group of divers on the boat and per instructor. Brand new comfortable rooms on site makes it very convenient to stay and dive. Eating out adds to the experience of trying local food. Close to several restaurants and to West end makes it a perfect place for those that do not want the busy crowded resorts. If you want white sandy beach, pool or all inclusive deal that is not for you. We stayed one week and loved it. Patrice is very caring and made us feel home as he picked us up from the airport. You will have fresh fruit, water, coffee and ice tea at the shop between dives. We stayed at the studio with a kitchen but the building also has an outside kitchen for gathering or if you are staying at a room. Believe it or not if you need something just ask Patrice and he will make it happen(Pat taking us pillow shopping after mentioning the pillows could be better 😊). Adrien, Capi, Rudi, Marcia and all the rest of the crew are amazing and added to our fun, we miss everyone. We highly recommend and will be back if they will have us. 😁 We dove 24 dives in the week all running 70 minutes+. Poor Adrien 😉
