We went there in April/May 2011. As someone's who's accustomed to expeditions / sketchy trips round the world, I quite like rustic places and a bit of adventure.
Reefci claims to be a diving holiday (not an expeditions), organised by English speaking people, and website made you want to believe its a good company to go with. It is, I guess, but not without many fundamental flaws:
organisers are nice
other people on the trip are nice
sense of adventure
good chef, fresh food
Company didn't tell us in advance that they've moved to a much smaller island than the one Advertised on the website.
Doors and windows were not built yet in the living building (and being on a tiny island in the Middle of the sea means very very windy)
Diving equipment were not checked before loading on to boat.
Once at sea, equipment malfunctioned and needed to be fixed
We were not told about local sea conditions and typical swells, thus couldn't prepare for the seasickness (sitting on the rocking boat trying to fix equipment for an hour didn't help)
We've already filled in numerous forms about allergies and dietary requirement, but the "chef" (who was very good) clearly didn't get the memo.
We've fed back to say food portion was too large that we didn't want things to go to waste and if we can dish up ourselves, and was bizarrely declined.
The "chef" turned out to be a sleaze bag and tried it on with all female travellers
The actual dive site was so so, visibility is in general low, not particularly diverse in sealife. Some diving involved Lionfish hunting trips, if you fancy shooting poisonous spiky fish at close range with a rubber band tied on to a short metal pole.
At the end of the trip organiser actively "encouraged" tipping boat staff / sleazy chef / boat kids which made us felt a bit pressured.
The island is about 30 paces wide and 100 paces long, and completely exposed to the elements.
All in all, I wish I had spent the money on an actual expedition or an actual holiday than something that's struggling in between. We fed back to the company, and hopefully by now they've improved.
