As high end resorts go, this would be classified as mediocre on the hotel front, but the dive facilities were phenomenal.
I have nothing to say about the accommodation that hasn't been said already, but the dive shop...that's a different story.
As a keen recreational diver, i am often let down by places like this. Fortunately the good people at Dive wishes broke this stereotype spectacularly. The place was very professionally organised, dive times were more flexible than anywhere I've ever stayed before and the staff, particularly the shop manager, were incredibly helpful and bent over backwards to meet our every need and request. If your looking for top notch 'fine vacationing' then this may not be the place for you...but, if you're looking for somewhere to stay in comfort and enjoy some of the most beautiful dive scenery one can imagine then this place would be worthy of a 6 star rating!
