Comments The resort is awesome, well maintained and well run. It is a remote island that is part of an island chain however, so sometimes things can't get fixed in an hour. That said, the resort itself is incredibly well maintained. Diving is easy and well organized. Food is always right on schedule and ranges from very good to incredible.
The variety of coral is unmatched and the quantity of tropical fish available on the reefs is considerable. Compared to the Caribbean the visibility will not be as great, but this can be attributed to the nutrients in the water. Not a lot of big animal encounters, although they do offer shark feeding dives. These were clicking on about an 80% rate for getting in good quantities of sharks as well as sightings of Tiger Sharks.
