We took an AC room and it was great. Although it comes with an additional single bed, we had all our luggages on it and it suits us well. There is a dive shop on the first floor and they have sufficient equipment for rental and you do not have to worry about not having your size for any of... More

From the team meeting you at the boat when you arrive. To the dive masters having the best attitude and helping us find the most amazing underwater creatures. Our group of 10 had a blast. The food was also fantastic. Overall a wonderful trip.6

The resort is extremely good at their business, namely catering to divers. The are very professional and friendly. The dive guides Gio, Daniel and Aris were very knowledgeable and made the dives so much better. The wall diving is so interesting and the sheer number of small creatures kept everybody's interest and cameras going. Not a lot of big creatures... More

The diving is exceptional: mostly drift diving, beautiful walls, hundreds of nudibranchs. Our dive guides, Gio, Aris, and Daniel were experts on the undersea critters and finding them. Our boat crew, Idris and Sinyo, helpful, reliable, and expert. We were in excellent hands. The hotel is nice and the food is good. The rooms are poorly ventilated.

The resort is very nice directly on the beach, the rooms are confortable and clean, the staff is really kind and helpfull, they are always smiling when you go to dive they take care of you and prepares all the equipment carefully, you don't have to do anything else that climb into the boat.
