I would say go around and ask. Who ever you feel comfortable talking with then use them.

Sadly which shop sometimes depends on where on the island your staying.

What Elbert is trying to say is if you are staying NORTH then use a dive shop up there, if you are SOUTH use a dive shop down there, and if you are CENTRAL use whatever one you like

The road system, or lack of it, makes some of the choice for you. I chuckle at a lot of folks that say they will 'drop in' when they get here. My shop and a lot of others will pick up by boat on the dock of the hotel your staying at but that has limits when gas cost $12. a gallon.
..so where you stay on the island sometimes limits your choices.

Take a reading lesson.........Elbert said "where" on the Island, not "what" Island.

Depending on where you are staying on the island you should have a decent number of dive shops to choose from. Some cater to small parties, some offer off shore atoll diving and the dive locations vary according to your experience level etc. Most resorts have a specific shops that they recommend and use.

You will have a lot of choice. Enjoy.

My BZE 2 cents... use a PADI certified dive shop.
