I returned to this little paradise gem, because the 2 previous trips in years past were such
consistently excellent experiences. I came mainly to Dive the spectacular walls and canyons loaded with marine life. I love the rustic natural feel of the place with thatched roof bungalows and the proximity to the ocean with constant breezes. I am still amazed to get a glass of really nice cabernet in a remote location. The food is fresh and filling with lots of seafood entrees. The atmosphere is casual and meeting and chatting with staff and new people is contagious. Kind of like going to the neighborhood pub. The owners' Raf and Cisca are both wonderful hosts and mingle freely with guests for interesting conversation. Once again I was delighted to spend a week at this paradise.
