Even though we only stayed 4 days, and almost all the other guests had been vacationing there for decades, we left feeling like family members. Half the staff started out as visitoras - it's a tough place to leave, and some people never do! The diving is great, both for novices like myself, and for experienced divers who keep coming back. You can do all levels of certification. The food is fantastic, the rooms are amazing - better than they look in the photos. Sure, they're beachside cabins and life is simple here, but that's how it's designed, and people bend over backwards to make sure your needs are met. The shark dive, which has been so carefully researched and planned, was the highlight of the diving experience; the staff were the highlight of the vacation overall. Amazing to find so many interesting, friendly, and helpful people all in the same place. And the guests are pretty cool too. It's an international community and a little bit of utopia. I have travelled widely and this is all around 1 of the best places I have ever been lucky enough to stay at. It's unique. it fully deserves the accolades and the Tripadvisor awards. Just go.
