Dived with Paradise three times last year. The service is very slick, 3 dives a day. All by boat so no driving to car parks and all the parking issues you have with that. They have two new big boats, one new in 2012 and one due in May 2013.
Excellent instructors/ guides who will help in anyway they can and all situated on a beautiful beach where you can relax and swim in between dives complete with beach bar.
I undertook a wreck speciality course with them in September 2012. The course was great and the level of instruction was in my opinion, superb.
In all, whether you are training or just diving, there is no better place to dive. I can compare this to another very well known centre I have used from the St Paul's Bay area where they not only lack professionalism, but also try to rip you off.

This is not a school to consider if you want a course or are inexperienced. The standard of one instructor in particular was appalling and the boats are difficult to get in and out of if you are not very agile. While there, two students in three days sufferred a severe squeeze, and two experienced divers who's new kit disintegrated were left to fend for themselves. That said, the range of dive sites is very good, as long as you understand that you and your buddy are effectively on your own. Prices are good, and because of the boats, 3 dives a day are offered.
