13yo son and I went spent a week in Lissenung. The location is unbelievable and Dietmar and Ange have created a piece of paradise. Staff were fantastic - Ange, Dietmar, Ian, Sandy, Simon and Nozaki, dive guides, kitchen staff, room attendants etc. Management warned us that diving in Dec wasn't the best time of the year with visibility "down" to 20-25m in most sites. We put up with this :) Dive guides were awesome - tell them what you want to see and more often than not they could find it (except the mandarinfish!). The house reef dive has to be one of the best shore dives anywhere! Rooms are basic but better than we were expecting. Food was fantastic. The kitchen staff are absolute legends. Try the crusted fish. The staff made a cake to celebrate son's 100th dive - a really nice touch. Definitely going back!
