We weren't sure what to expect but from the moment we arrived to coconut drinks at the bar perched over the reef we knew we'd come to somewhere special. The staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and relaxed - always ready to assist or just leave you alone to do your own thing. We spent our days snorkelling over the reef right in front of our room, then for variety borrowed a kayak to cruise the island. Best of all though was the diving. A special thanks to the guys at the dive shop - they looked after us very well and know their stuff. The vertical reef was spectacular and the Hellcat and Toa Maru wrecks well worth it. Food - we started with an excellent pizza from the wood-fired oven for lunch and came back for more each day. For dinner (in the restaurant or on the deck over the reef) there's excellent seafood caught by the locals daily (the crays are a must), but also good alternatives on offer. The menu changes daily and the quality of the cooking was very good. The rooms are basic (unless you want to go right up-market and stay at the Lodge) but clean, and after all, we didn't go there to sit in our room all day. Well done Hans!
