Comments The resort is wonderfully situated and isolated. However if you are here to dive, you are in for a surprise! Safety is absolutly lacking! (Read about the death and inquiry that occurred there in the London Daily Telegraph). The dive manager is not only rude but lacking in decent standard for running a dive operation.

Diver's are always accompanied (even if it is some kid without so much as a rescue diver certification) and limited to 20 minutes.

It is a shame as the resort is well placed for a family vacation.
