Golden Reef Inn was an extremely reasonable choice. Ed and Liz were very
responsive to any problem. Our sliding glass door had issues. We mentioned
it and Ed had it fixed within the hour. We got the breakfast included. Eggs
to order, sausage, bacon, toast, fruits and juices, pancakes - everything a
diver wants for breakfast. Liz took care of all the trip details including
airfare so we just showed up and went diving. My wife and I ae quite
experienced but my daughter and her friend came along as relative newbies.
They had a great time. We started out with 5 boat dives then hired Bas Noij
to act as our guide including a UV night dive. My daughter considers it the
best dive yet. It was pretty spectacular. Bas provided uv lights for each
of us as well as filters. I would highly recommend Bas to anyone of any
experience level. He easily found Seahorse, Scorpionfish, whaterver. He is
as good as any divemaster I've been around, perhaps better. He works with
Blue divers. All in all an excellent adventure.
