The team at Lumba Lumba are very efficient with email communications and offering information to assist your journey to the beautiful Pulau Weh. This is a dedicated dive resort so if your purpose here is to get wet then you're at the right place. Spent four nights here which was nowhere near long enough to sample all the dive sites on offer. Organisation and dive preparation was excellent, you can even request specific dive sites as I did. The only down side is that it can get very busy and feel a little crowded when there are many divers and large groups. That said, the dive team is very good at grouping divers with those of similar experience and ability so you get the most out of your underwater excursions.
Zero complaints about the family room which was great, a lot of space, nice balcony and a very natural and eco-friendly feel. Gapang itself has very little else to do but chill out or dive, there are only three restaurants and they all have the same menu! The kids had fun snorkelling on the house reef which is like a little aquarium right outside the resort.
