Ok, I will start with the diving.. The diving experience was brilliant and my instructor Scott was very good. I did the open water dive over a 4 day period.
The first day was just classroom work and was a bit frustrating but when you actually get diving I was very surprised how this information comes into play. The one thin I learnt is you cannot just go diving without all the pre work that you.
We had six people in our class and it was a great laugh the minute we got the gear on and into the pool.
The two days we did in the open water was just amazing. I can honestly say I would of loved to have done the advanced course but I ran out of time. Just be patient with the training and believe me when I say you will love the dives!!!.
The accommodation is very poor and I would recommend upgrading if possible.. The reason for the no toilet paper is no different from most places as its to do with the dumping of waste in the sea. The 4 days we spend was not that bad as we were never in the room as you are out for most of the day.
In the end the resort is fantastic and the people working there are always wiling to help and make the diving safe.
And definitely buy the DVD in the end.
Great time and cheers Scott.
