The dive organization is good. The rental equipment is ok, not very good, but acceptable if you don't have your own equipment. The staff is friendly (especially Mika, thank you) and willing to help.
The rooms are only average. When there is wind outside, there is also wind inside the rooms. When we arrived, there was no electricity and while taking a shower, the gas bottle became empty so the shower went cold.
The restaurant was very bad, bad quality meat and the lasagna was hot on the outside, but frozen inside. After reporting this problem, it was offered to deliver a new one: same problem. So apparently the people in the kitchen do not even know how to warm a plate of lasagna. The following days we decided to have diner in the Lighthouse restaurant, just outside the gate, on the opposite side of the road which is really good.
