While the standard rooms, resort, and restuarant were fairly average (less the bar, which is actually quite nice in the evening with live music), the instructors make this dive resort a truly phenomenal experience. Specifically, my Open Water group was led by a girl named Manya who was always enthusiastic during both classroom and dive sessions. She was able to quickly and calmly assist me when I had begun choking underwater after performing a regulator skill incorrectly at 10 metres deep. She immediately defused what could have been a very dangerous situation. The other instructors, Marcel, Rory, and Shane were very entertaining and knowledgable, and they were supportive when I had experienced sinus issues while descending. While the facilities and equipment may not be anything to get excited about, the staff truly make this the best diving resort in Thailand.
