We intended to stay at Cakalang for 4 nights but ended up extending our time there 3 more days. We couldn't get enough of the delicious food, friendly people and INCREDIBLE diving.
Ferdinand's dive equipment is brand new and taken care of. Due to the small size of the resort, each dive was catered to our needs- which was awesome! They were very flexible and knowledgable of the area, both in and out of the water. On days we didn't dive, we would use snorkel gear and wade out past the mangroves for superb, absolutely amazing snorkeling.
The bungalows were spacious and immaculate! Very comfortable and clean!!! A lot of care went into the design and they are very well kept.
The meals were delicious! The staff took great care in creating a variety of dishes. New flavors every day! The presentation of the food made us feel like we were at a dinner party, the table was always set just so-inviting and lovely.
Above all, Ferdinand and his wife Julie are great people, and have a terrific staff! Everybody is smiling and a joy to be around. I have fond memories of dominos games and lots of laughs. They really went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be, and I would surely recommend to all!
