Absolutely great place to stay with really helpful staff that are happy to help plan and book anything and everything you want to do. From the very first day Malcolm went out of his way to make the trip a true pleasure. As BGB say come as strangers leave as friends. Ask Malc about the pork chop☺

We were looking for a complete package for our diving trip. And BGB provided all. The land transfers were on time, the diving operator was great, the diving sites were super! the lunch was OK, everything went really smoothly. We will definitely come back for more - and BGB will be our 1st choice!
