Comments 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.
