This was a second visit of the year having visited in March. We have never returned to the same holiday destination before, this time we took our children as a special treat as they are now at/going to university. The Oberoi is a top top class hotel and the dive school and house reef is nothing short of spectacular. I would compare it in the same class as the FourSeasons in the Maldives where we stayed the previous year. The sea is so clean and pure the seagrass grows here which attracts the seahorses. I have dived on the house reef 20 times now without getting bored because of the wonderful marine life. There are turtles, rays, lionfish and thousands of fish which populate the reef.
There were not very many guests because of the political situation but the quality of the service and everything else was unaffected. The kids learned to dive during the holiday which they loved and the also the quality of the hotel (they had never stayed at such a top quality hotel before) The food is superb, in particular the spicing of the dishes which was so well balanced. The food covers a whole range of different cuisines from European, North African Indian and Asian and never anything other than delicious. Things to be aware of - alcohol is expensive with foreign wines starting at $80 region because of the import taxes, the local wine is half this price and is perfectly acceptable. The portion size of the food was on the large size for us and we had to get used to not having clean plates! The internet speed was at the slow end of acceptable. As you can tell from these tiny minor points I'm nitpicking about this lovely hotel.
