Comments The good - small intimate resort sandwiched along a long beach with several larger more commerical resorts. Great staff. Dive shop was very experienced and excellent. While they did not have nitrox themselves they had it especailly brought in for us from another dive shop. The individual bungalows were very private and nice.

The less good - the diving was exclusively on the west side which was very good but there are some well known and excellent dive sites on the east side which dive shops on the west side don't go to. Wish I had known that before hand.

Went on a reef shark dive. Well run and very safe. Arranged through the dive shop.

Took a day off and went to mainland and did river rafting. Had a great time. Zip lining through the jungle was a lot of fun as well.
