After reading the reviews we were really excited to stay here, however it did not up to the reviews or expectations. Upon arriving we found that both owners were absent. They were gone a significant amount of time before we arrived and failed to let us know they would not be there. The remaining staff were all Indonesian, spoke little English, and gave mediocre service (including cold meals).
We decided to stay at this resort to dive with experienced, passionate guides who loved diving. Instead we dove with an average guide, who wasn't very knowledgeable about the reef and didn't speak English all that well. The owners required a 70% deposit before arrival, told us we would be diving with them, knew they weren't going to be there when we arrived, and didn't tell us they would be absent or offer to refund our money.
While the cat is away, the mice will play.
