We booked this trip based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we had a fantastic time. I had never scuba dived before but the instructors put us all at ease and we had no trouble in picking up the basics. On our one night/2 day stay we dived 5 times and in fact my husband paid for an extra night dive which he said was fantastic. The staff were freindly, the food was good and we had a lovely cabin. I commend Justin in particular for putting up with my inability to get my flippers off my feet and he was gracious enough to help me everytime we surfaced! We saw loads of marine life and I will never forget the group Parrot fish hanging around on our 6.30 am dive, just waking up for the day. The food was good and the staff really professional yet relaxed. if you want to learn to dive this is the place to do it!
