Comments This was second trip to Papua Paradise. Ownership had changed from resident owners to a large corporation. Service and interaction with staff was a little different as staff were no longer the owners we had gotten to know, but were employees trying to do a good job with insufficient authority. So we were disappointed in our second trip compared to our first trip. Yet the trip was still good and the accommodations and food and diving was still pretty good.
