Comments Easy access to reefs from small boats that come to the shore within 15 meters from the hotel. You get on board with a helping hand to keep your balance on the plank going from the sand to the deck. You leave your gear on board, staff take care of rest. Boat staff help you in and out of your gear. Backroll into the water, ladder to get back in after handing your bottle/BCD, fins and camera. Up to 4 dives a day. No big fish around, but guides show you the little hidden things or the big frog fish that you would never have noticed.Best dives for me were night dives.
Exellent dive guides. Staff is friendly, helpful and flexible.
On one nightdive, I was was the only diver and so I had my own private dive guide. Talking about flexibility here!
The resort itself is cosy, clean and in good shape. Large rooms, excellent bathroom.
The resort is isolated, with nothing around you. So you need to treat this as if it were a liveaboard.
Food is OK, but if you are a gourmet, you will be disapointed.
Only negative is the internet that is dead slow and not reliable.If you need to stay connected, choose another destination or ask the resort if they have dealt with this obvious shortcomming
