The owner, Jeff, is very friendly, welcoming, hilarious, energetic and completely crazy. In a good way. He makes sure you have the best time... More

The best part is the place was above the sea and we can do snorkelling or swimming anytime... And the water was very clear all the time. The snorkelling pacakge was excellent. We... More
