Comments Wonderful trip. We were the only Americans on Island. People could not have been nicer. long trip. +27 hours to get back to the States. This particular resort has fresh and diverse foods. Never got boring. Plenty to choose from for the adventurous or stick to chicken and salad. Spa at resort was better than usual. Accomodations were clean and the Jacuzzi water villas were new and beautiful. Overall dive experience was fantastic. Strong currents. Not for the weak. Barbara and Tom ran Pro Divers. We found them to be quite efficient and helpful. they were shorthanded at the time and took up the slack well. We had different dive masters from other resorts to fill in and all were knowledgeable and friendly.
Only negative - Barbara was into photography and when you dove with her you were basically on your own. She was into Macro and never looked up. Tom planned every dive to the last detail. We looked forward to diving with him. Had two dive boats One in German and one in English. resort is probably 60 English 40 German. Barbara and Tom - German. Definitely would go back. Well worth it.
