Visited here in mid November with a small group of 5 interested in doing some scuba diving. The Sanbis Resort is situated on a largish island with nice views and a fairly short boat ride from Ghizo airport. The bungalows each have a verandah looking out to sea and the cleanliness is fine. No air conditioning, just a very small fan which can be very noisy. There are no power points in the rooms to charge batteries and the lights and fan went off every night which left you in a lather of sweat. The water to the showers is from a well so it's a bit brackish and smells. The food was fine and the staff very friendly. There is no swimming pool. It was made very clear that dive groups are not really catered for and the dive operation reflected this. For the money I would have expected more.
