Good: diving, food ok, staff tries very hard to serve you even on days off
they start early; even sweep the pier at 5 AM; the mgr, Maya Hadorn ( a
blonde, very dynamic) refused to charge me for hot chocoloate ( so I tipped
more than usual at the end)); Maya said not to trust blondes when it comes
to macro vs. wide angle; good group of divers (very social) that week from
Germany, Holland, So. Africa, USA; very easy divng when I dived with
couples but more strenuous w/ men single divers; not much bugs nor
mosquitos near the resort

bad: strong currents more than 1/2 the time; long 2.5 hrs. boat travel to/
from resort; inconvenient toilets at end of pier; sorta common, cool water
showers ( by "pouring" over one's head) but they heat water for
night dives; very strong winds a few times that week; sometimes, there were
snacks between dives
