Understand that there are services available at a price that optimize a
review on Tripadvisor which distorts the actual ranking.  We discovered
this issue when we noticed the Turtle Inn was ranked 5th in Placencia,
Belize.  It is not the cheapest but if you have ever been to Palacencia it
is certainly better than 5th by any measure.  Upon investigation we found
out about the Tripadvisor optimization services that are available to
resorts to up their rating.  Tripadvisor did not seem to have an answer on
how to fix the issue.  I am sticking with Undercurrents for my decisions
although I post to Tripadvisor also.  Thought you might want to know.

We dove Sea Bees out of Phuket on a day dive and on the liveaboard Diva
Andaman for a week at the Similan Islands last March and both did a great
job.  Then we were off to Borneo Divers in Mabul to dive Sipadan which I
finally posted a review of the trip.
