Coral Princess Club Hotel is first rate. Located north of town. Rooms and
accomodations first class. Hotel staff friendly and always helpful. Great
ocean view and one of the best beeches of any of the hotels on Coz. If you
get a jungle view room, just ask and they will move you to an ocean view
when one is available, usually only a day or two wait. Good shore diving
right in front of the hotel. Shallow (10 - 20 ft) but lots of great macro
Pepe Scuba located right at hotel. Pepe is a great guy and runs a pretty
good operation. Dive masters and Captains always friendly, and always
assemble your gear for you. Boats small and fast, no cattle boats. While
other operators will ignore harbour master rules and dive Baracuda, Pepe
will not. You can't argue a safety rule. Boats pick you up right in front
of the hotel. Could use gear lockers, though. 
Avoid the scooter and car rental outfit at the hotel. They are rude,
rip-off artists, and over priced. Much better deals in town.
