GREAT food, service, warm people, neat critters like Blue Ribbon eels on
most dives, Clown TRIGGER fish, Titan, Scythe, and red toothed triggers
too.  Sleeping white tip reef sharks, nudibranchs, loads
of anenome fish and baby fish.  Healthy beautiful coral, great viz, lion
fish etc.  Great live local music at dinner every night.  Local dancers
entertained one night and they were very fun.  Firewalkers also came and
did their thing.  All the shore diving you can eat and two night dives a
week.  (Take your own cylume sticks) in fact don't expect to buy anything
the entire time you are there because there is nowhere to go.  Kayaking fun
and sheltered.  Internet access available but expensive.  They bent over
backwards to make everything just perfect.  The food was so good that it
compared most of the time well with really good restaurants at home.  I
would go there for dinner if they existed here and that is a big step above
where most dive places are.  Water 100% safe from a spring and we ate and
drank everything and if I can do it anyone would be fine.  Watch out for
the Kava bowl as everyone drinks from it and some people got a throat
infection a couple of days after the kava ceremony and had to go back to
the mainland to get to a doctor.  Be sure to get to Joe's Best.  The best
dive site I have ever seen.  It can have a little current but it is
breathtaking.  If Fiji had a coral bleaching problem in 11 dives here and
12 in the Bligh waters I never saw it.  The whole thing is a riot of life. 
Just counting the critters in a cubic yard of space would be maddening. 
Laundry service nice because of the humidity.  (nothing dried)  I usually
don't use them as they tend to be rediculous but for about $3-5US per
person per day we kept out of the laundry business and in clean dry
unsmelly garments.  the grounds are right out of a postcard and the trip
from the airport is through lush beautiful jungle that is probably what the
best parts of Hawaii used to look like.  This is a seriously not to be
missed place.
