Nice workbenches, blow-off provided with separate wet bench (although
needed to watch it as high pressure), handlers knew how to deal w/camera
gear, full complement of charging accessories, A/C in the room but this
caused condensation as it was left on overnight - a little instruction and
this never happened again.

I think the resort is top-notch from a facilities and service standpoint.
The boats appearance puts you off (they look old and worn) but man are they
stable, roomy, and a breeze to don gear with a short step to a giant
stride. Excellent ladder for climbing back in and the handlers pulled the
gear up for you. I heard one diver say this is "spa diving" and
it was!

The rooms were to die for. Big and well appointed. The A/C was sized
correctly and kept the room at a nice temp. There was outside showers that
I loved. Even the bed was OK and I am picky - usually they are hard and
uncomfortable... this one was OK and I slept on it for 9 nights.

There was a bar/lounge with a good sized flatscreen. The dining room was
close by and if there was less that 6 people a'la carte otherwise buffet.
The food was just OK - they need to do a better job here.

The wait staff were good and helpful. The whole experience was a bit
costlier than other resorts (not by much) and well worth it. I highly
recommend this resort - we are returning here (won't even try KBR or
Lembeh)
