The resort is laid back and quiet. The german staff can be a bit stand-offish at times. You need to not be in a hurry and go with the flow. The restaurant served good meals and the honor bar meant you never had to wait for a beverage. Staying here reminded me of days gone by where expats and islanders went about their day in a routine that many Americans would need to adjust to. The rooms were clean and well maintained. I had paid for an air-conditioned room but was first put into a non-air room. After a bit I was moved to the appropriate room.

The island is very quiet and you could look down the beach and see not a single footprint, when was the last time you saw that. This is really a place where you can get away from it all as most times the internet connection didn't work.

Epic diving is a small operation, they pick you up at the resort and drive you to a dock where you take a small boat out to the dive boat. I was here to photograph Oceanic White Tips and that is a specialty of this husband and wife team. Many up close encounters with these big sharks both on snorkel and scuba. The couple told me that the reef diving was excellent as there is no pressure on the the sites but I did not have the time to explore, I would love to go back and give the reefs a go so day.
