We stayed at Scuba Seraya for five days. The resort is under new management as of 2013. The diving is excellent, with good guides ... in particular Paing was very helpful and a great spotter. The accommodations are nice, we liked our villa. There are a few issues however with sealing of the villa to avoid mosquitos. There were a lot of ants also. The air conditioner in our villa was not working well but fortunately it was not too hot while we were there.
The food was very average and in some cases rather low quality--low quality ingredients were used. In order to go into Tulamben from the resort you have to take a taxi and it is expensive for what it is ... 5 minute ride for $10 or so. Outdoor bathtub in the villa was run down/unused.
There was a bait and switch regarding pricing on massage--we were told one price and then when we were presented the bill the price had gone up 30%.
Overall, it's a good place to stay for divers, but as a resort only or for non-divers I wouldn't really recommend it. Final rating: Diving 4 stars, Resort 3 stars.
