My buddy and I spent 5 days diving with the Big Apple dive team. Can only say great thinks about Joel, Bunny and the rest of the crew. We were lucky to have great dive conditions, not much current even on the Verde Island day trip. Being the low season, Joel and Bunny were able to let us choose which sites we wanted to visit. There was a lot of macro sea life, the coral was in pretty good shape and the water was comfortably warm without a wetsuit (28-30C). A couple of big titan triggerfish didn't like our presence though.
Both my buddy and I had some small issues with our regulators, but the team there easily helped us solve the problems. I emphatically recommend this resort for the dive team. (We didn't stay in the resort, so can't say much about the rooms. However, the breakfasts in the restaurant was not bad.)
