Robert and Gayle Hello I am planning to book 3 days in the Tulamben area prior to my family arriving from NYC. So far my research shows that is the best area to dive in early April. As there are a number of resorts in the area I was wondering how you picked Ocean view dive resort and if you would recommend that one over others. Thank you Andy

Found and booked the Ocean View through Chose it over others on Agoda because it's close to the Liberty Wreck. It was our first land-based visit to Tulamben (previously dove Liberty Wreck from the Komodo Dancer.) Our travel agent (Reef n Rainforest) had recommended a different resort that was 15 minutes away from the wreck and cost 4 times as much. The Mimpi resort looked nice from the outside, but we did not go inside for a look. All the villas at Ocean View appeared to be the same size...don't know how many in your family; but they are certainly spacious and comfortable.
