Wow! Diving was fantastic - muck diving at its finest. The dive guide asks
what you are looking to see and will take you to the sites where you will
see what you want, such as pygmy seahorses, ghost pipefish, ornate ghost
pipefish, flambouyant cuttlefish, mimick octopus, fireclam, seahorses, nudi
branches and more.
Food was very good, providing you appreciate local cuisine. Do not come
here expecting hamburgers, hotdogs and pizza. The local staff prepares
wonderful local cuisine with pomme frite each night at dinner as the owner
is Dutch. Breakfast is local with fruit, crepes, eggs and nasi goreng. Very
good and all fresh! Meals are served family style. The staff is remarkably
helpful and friendly. There is a free laundry service and internet use. The
most guests you will encounter is 9 others, as there are only 5
guesthouses. This is a diver's paradise. If you are looking for luxury and
spa-like facilities, this is not the place for you. If you just need a
clean place to crash and extraordinary diving for a reasonable price with
helpful, friendly staff - this is the place for you. Dive boats are well
maintained and comfortable with a toilet on some boats. Nitrox is available
for an extra charge.
