Comments The resort was NOT on the beach as advertised, but in a stinky mangrove swamp, rooms were nice but some stiffling hot as AC didn't work well and windows not really operable to get breeze through;small dive shop, not very professional, used very bad small local boats when there were a few slightly better ones, water was filthy and low vis, reef was in pretty good shape considering the horrid debris and plastic and garbage in the water everywhere; "lunch" on boat inedible;stop on small island of Menganjan was so dirty, we didn't get off the boat;its really a shame that Bali can't clean up the garbage everywhere on land and in the water;saw a couple of interesting things, but all the PR info and hype is not accurate about this part of Bali
