This is the one of the best place to snorkel. People come in boat loads ( no pun intended ) to check the fish out here. You get an amazing view of the sea from almost any place, the rooms, restaurant or the pool. The rooms were alright and I liked that the bed came with its own mosquito net.
We brought our own snorkeling gear but you can rent them right from the pool and there are lots of access points for snorkeling. They also lots of other amenities like cliff side spa for massages, nothing compares to real ocean waves sound then the music you hear in a spa in the city.
Overall, this is a perfect place to relax and listen to the ocean waves. Also, there is a cool 'dive' bar Ricks cafe not to be missed.
