A rinse bucket shared with masks, no tables or storage places for cameras. 
Most photographers held cameras, dive sites within 10-15 minutes of resort.

Good - dive operation was well run, divemasters courteous and willing to
find requested species.  Boat staff helpful getting divers in and out of
boats.  Boat returned to dock after every dive making it easy for my
husband and I to take turns diving and watching the baby.  Six large boats,
took out 4 boats daily with 10-12 divers per boat with plenty of room.

We traveled with our 9 month old baby and the resort staff was fabulous
with her, even buying her small presents before we left.  Rooms were
comfortable and clean with air conditioning, requested crib was already in
the room.  Meals were served buffet style and the food was simple, but
adequate.  Guests were thrilled with the pack of monkeys that could be fed
by hand and would perch on your shoulder or head.

Bad - cattle call at airport for pickup and drop off.  Typical of small
island airports!  

Diving was easy with nice selection of soft corals, tropicals, and sponges.
 Great for beginner divers.  Good value for $650 ~ room, food, 3 dives per
day, one night dive and airport transfers.  We would return to this
resort.
