Comments I came w/a dive group of 20 from Chicago. We divided the group in half for our two week stay. For the first week, our split group of ten occupied the resort's liveaboard "Pelagian". For week two, our split group changed places and spent the second week in the resort. I decided to splurge and rented one of the two bedroom villas. While all of the regular cabins are very nice, the two bedroom villa was REALLY OVER THE TOP FANTASTIC!. The 2 bedroom villa is in its own compound right on the water. The outdoor bath/shower area was the size of a large bedroom and the two villas shared a large sized plunge pool with a very big deck overlooking the ocean. Very high end finishes throughout the resort, but especially within this villa. The service here was fantastic too. 130 employees for 50 guests. All of the meals were sumptuous. Now for the diving: Very spacious old wooden boats took us out for all of the boat dives, but don't neglect the house reef for shore diving and/or a night dive from shore. The house reef was quite nice. All of the corals appeared very healthy and marine life was plentiful. My only complaint, was the absence of sharks and larger pelagics. Overall, a fantastic experience.
