I've been meaning to write this review for some time but have hesitated because it is very unpleasant for me to recall. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are fine. The cuisine is better than you'd expect and the diving is great. So why the low rating? One of the dive masters, an older gentleman, an expat South African, Zimbabwean, I believe, used much of our surface time on the dive boat one day to launch into an extremely hateful diatribe against blacks in South Africa. I have never heard anything like this and I hope I never do again. And on my own dime and from someone in a leadership role, essentially the captain of the boat. Outrageous. We spoke to the owner of the place about it. He didn't express much concern, and I see from recent posts that the gentleman is still part of the operation.
