Comments The good: Dive operation staff were outstanding!!!! (Apparently new staff since March) Walls and visibility (200ft!) are awe inspiring. Had the good fortune to see pilot whales from boat and dolphin while diving. Hammerhead and reef shark as well. Very eco aware (scientist from local field station came to give a lecture, guests made aware of preserving reefs, etc.. Divemasters were very experienced, helpful and fun!! Service was top-notch! Staff were very experienced but still full of enthusiasm for job. They were always available and accomodating to needs and requests.

The bad: Hotel isn't run as well as the diving. Restaurant staff a bit slow but friendly.

Overall: Love the diving and dive operation. What the hotel lacks the dive operation makes up for.
