Had a large room with charging stations.  Bring your Macro lens, the
creatures are incredible.  This basin is millions of years old and they
have had lots of time to adapt and evolve.  The dive masters have wonderful
eyes and are able to point out stuff I would never have been able to pick

This is a new resort and is a work in progress.  We were only the 3rd group
scheduled there.  The relatively low ratings I gave them will improve with
time.  They do need to improve their food though. Bring a sack of snacks to
nibble on between meals. We stopped there for 3 days after the trip of a
lifetime on the liveaboard, Archipelligo II. This is all about muck diving.
We saw incredible critters, including tons of nudibranchs, lion fish, frog
fish, sea horses(including pigmy seahorses), scorpion fish, zebra craps,
mandrian fish, ornate ghost pipefish, anemone fish, and others I can't
remember.  The rooms were spacious and the showers hot.  At this time they
had only one main generator so the were times without electricity.  This
will be improved in the future.  All of the dives were relatively shallow
so there was no need for nitrox.
