i have my open water diving license in jakarta, then the exam is in sepa island. i don't know exactly how much i have to pay for staying in this resort, because i paid including the diving certification from planet diving.i stay for 2D/1N, and have 4 times dives. we took a boat from 19th dock at marina ancol, the boat is okay. except we r in the same boat with bunch of foreigner that really drunk! it's annoying because they speak very loud, singing very loud, one girls trying to strip dance in the captain room and climb up to the roof of the boat! so the captain stop the boat, untill the girl get down. for sure we didn't want to get close with them in the island, and trying to have our room far away from them.
we have our own diving equipment except oxygen tank and weight belt. the diving staff is very good, they provide our equipment very well. they arrange our boat to the diving site.the diving service is good.
i feel the same with everyone else who write the review, the room is really poor! i was find out how much its cost per night in flipper room and with around 1,4 million IDR/night, its really not worthed! yes i have an AC and TV, but i don't need that at all. the room is very very poor, the bathroom is not clean, the shower is not working well, the wall is only a thin plywood. i can have 5 star hotel with that money in bali or lombok! but u don't have another accommodation choice in this island, u have to accept that. the food is not good, but they just serve a buffet. I'm a starving diver... i will eat everything they serve.
and i agree, the nature is great! this island have interesting dive site, shipwreck dive site is not far from this island. even u r not diving, this island still have a great beach and u can snorkeling around the island with a good condition coral, and if u r lucky u can meet turtles.
well...over all, it depends on ur purpose to get to this resort. if u want to find convenient resort, u will be disappointed. i go to this island to dive...so i spent a lot of time in the ocean, not in my room.
