Comments 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!
