Good - excellent staff
     - extremely well organized operation from the greeter in Bali to the
efficient check out staff at departure
     - amazing variety in marine life  bring your fish/coral id books (or
just browse their library)
     - DM are very knowledgeable and friendly
     - resort has most equipment for rent
     - excellent reef 

Bad  - remote therefore long travel times with a min overnight stay in 

Wished I'd known - rent flashlight for night dive(s) you can't leave 
     - mild to moderate current on some dives I'd avoid split fins
     - internet is SLOW I'd just use their computers
