They have three camera rinse tanks, and the crew did a great job of getting
the right camera on the right boat.

The resort is outstanding, I will definitely go there again.  The
restaurant and bar are about what you'd expect in that part of the world -
limited choices, especially for a vegan like me.  Excellent fresh fruit and
fresh juices, though!  You can order a fresh coconut ahead of time, but
even when I did that, I only received my order less than half the time.

The staff attitude is excellent.  The dive boats are fairly well equipped,
but space is tight.  The older boat has very high sides, so even rolling
off the side is challenging!  But they will let you jump in and put on your
gear in the water.  There was always fresh water, clean towels and fruit
after every dive.  This was the most like liveaboard diving we've done from
a land based operation.

There is a very nice pool, and an excellent spa on the property.  We made
good use of the spa!
