Stayed her for a couple of nights November 2013. Stay was fine, bungalow's good as well. Bit surprised by the Excellent ratings of other reviewers. Don't get me wrong stay was OK, good prices, diving OK etc but not over the top and worth a excellent rating.

If you travelling with non-diving family members I would recommend the resort across the street (Tauch Terminal Tulamben Resort), much nicer if you're not diving, nice sea view and a pleasant sea breeze as well.

While diving with Ocean Sun was great, our stay at the resort was only so, so ...
The reason:
next to the Resort there is a area where many chicken and at least two roosters roam freely AND seemingly crow throughout the whole night! Our bungalow was nice, the bathroom great, nice pool and restaurant area, just the roosters ruined it for us (otherwise 5 stars).
If you can sleep through that it is gonna be great for you, otherwise better bring your earplugs!

I did my SSI Instructor course with Ocean Sun. I could not have made a better choice. The location is just perfect, right in front of the dive spots. Although the dive resort is in front of the main street, the room and restaurant are well organized so you not have any noise problems.
Ricardo is a great Instructor trainer and had a lot of patience with me and even putt in some extra time on my skills that absolutely needed more training. In the end he delivered more than i could have wished or payed for. The restaurant is really great, all the dishes have there own touch and are well prepared and really fresh.
The staff is very patience, friendly and helpful. Everything is well organized.

This place is a find. Roomy and really clean rooms, lots of light, good ventilation (inc. AC), warm water, really comfy, big and beatyful bathroom ( and clean + clear water!), nice stuff and breakfast big enough. Rooms were cheap and garden was huge (as indonesian garden) and clean too. Pool was fresh, warm and deep engough. I particulary liked the intimacy of the place. It felt that we have lot of room around us.

Location was engough near the beach (for divers) and diving equipments were well maintained. Guides were good and polite. (And diving sites were good!)

If I try to find anything negative to say, it could be menu-food. They were midprices, but not extremely delicious (just ordinary good) and not too big either (which was actually a really good thing, but it was difficult to understand that at the beginning).

I have seen a lot of accommodations in Northern Bali and this place was definately a star! Expecially if you are coming to Bali for a first time. Theese peope will help you to find places to go and help you with travelling. Good, good, good.

If you want great dives, top class service, a cheap and convenient restaurant that serves very good food then don't look anywhere else in Tulamben!

Ocean Sun deliveres exactly that!

The dive instructors are professional and know the dive sites like the back of their hands and are on the look out for macro as well as micro. The divers courses are cheap and at your pace. Had only good experiences with Robert (aka. Robi) who took care of the dive course and all the different guides we went out with!

The rooms are HUGE and have nice semi-open air toilets and bath!

Room Tip: Ask for transport to and from the airport if nessecary and they'll gladly help!

We had a lovely stay at Ric's spacious bungalows.

Room
The room and bathroom was fabulous ! It was spacious, modern, air-coned and clean.
Love the outdoor bathroom.

Food
Good array of food selections - Western / German and Balinese.
The staffs remembers our usual breakfast orders which was a very nice touch :)

Dive
We did many shore dives with Ric's fountain of dive knowledge.
Eg: when is the best time / site etc.
Ric is a chilled person and was very kind in arranging our trip to Manta point personally.

Others
We made many new friends and learnt UNO with a twist through Ric and Yeni !
Was great laugh ! and we were honored to taste Yeni's new cooking recipes

The break down of our final bill was clear and detailed .
We were pleasantly surprised that our bill was lower than expected as Ric had given us great discounts on top of his already good value pricing.
I doubt you can find such great value stay and dive in Tulamben area.

Overall , we had a wonderful 3 weeks stay at Ocean Sun Dive Resort.
My deep felt appreciation to Ric , Yeni and all of their staff for their warm hospitality.

Lastly, would like to congratulate to Ric and Yen on their marriage !

First of all, would like to thank Ric, Yeni, Roby and the management staffs at Ocean sun. You guys really made our stay so warm and feel just like home.

My bf and i booked the SSI AOW with OceanSun. I found Ric from SSI dive centre locators and i decided to go with him after emailing each other. He was very helpful in the emails and he was
attentive to my queries as well. Everything went smoothly. Putu (our pickup driver) was there when we got out from arrival hall. My bf saw him with the oceansun t shirt and with our names on a board. He was really very friendly, always with a smile. He brought us to exchange $ and even intro-ed the warong babi guling sanur to pack our lunches. One thing we are so sorry, because we should have eaten the lunch there instead of packing. After which we realized that Putu had not taken his lunch. ( He was at the airport early and he drove 2.5 hours to Tulamben). We are so sorry about that... we felt bad even until today.
Putu was really a very good driver and he is very polite. :) Thanks Putu!

The stay:
The bungalow at OceanDive was marvelous! A nice view of Mount Agung, windy and cool 24hours round. It was comfortable, the room was spacious and the bathroom too was spacious. The only thing we were not aware is that, we have to bring our own toiletries. :p Which we didnt.. so we have to walk over to the minimart nearby (just 3 mins away) to get our stuffs. We love everything about the bungalows except for the mosquitoes at night. There are really a lot of mosquitoes and we woke up quite often because of the itch. ( Maybe perhaps Ric can install some mosquitoes net at the bed area? , and then it would be perfect! )

The food:
Breakfast was provided. It was definitely a good range of choices to choose from ( Toast/ cereal/ indo food/ omelette).
For lunch and dinner, we couldnt resist the good food provided by Oceansun restarant, therefore, we had all our lunches and dinners at Oceansun. :p
My bf particularly loves the german food for sure! The "Bratkartoffeln" was really really good! And the toast bread were solid! We tried the indo food, western salad, spagetti as well as the german food. Love the local balinese pancake! 2 thumbs up for the restaurant! Thanks Yeni! :)

The Dive:
We took 4 specialty courses with Roby as our instructor. He is very supportive and attentive during the dive. His dive plan and explanation were thorough and we were able to follow through comfortably.
He also pointed out to us a lot of creatures and definitely he is very supportive especially for me as i had some problems equalizing my ears. Roby helped me through and thanks for the valuable lessons and fun diving with you! :)
Visited coral garden, drop off, liberty wreck!

Overall, we had a great stay and definitely coming back to Ocean Sun if we were to come to Tulamben again. Also, will definitely recommend to our friends and family!

p/s: We hope that Ric could take into the consideration to install the mosquitoes net in the room! and everything would be PERFECT! :)
