I was with a large group that included non-divers. This turned out to be the right choice because it has a swimming pool. The kids loved it and alternated between the beach and pool. Great service. The resort arranged a boat tour around the island – we made a couple of stops to snorkel.
Spacious airconditioned rooms and bath (with hot water). I brought soap because of the review below, but the resort supplied shower gel, soap, shampoo and hair conditioner. We got a room on the ground floor across the pool. Hotel cleaning staff swept our porch more than twice a day, and provided beach towels too.
The staff was accommodating and flexible. At our request, they set up tables on the beach where we had a dinner of grilled tuna, noodles and chicken … and mango juice. We brought our own wine and they waived corkage. Food preparation took awhile, so best to order in advance.
Dive shop (Seaquest) is a few steps from the reception. Seaquest arranged a few dives, including Monad Shoal. We saw one thresher shark that day. The divemaster, Luwil, was safety-conscious and knowledgeable. He spotted a crown of thorns starfish and pointed out small marine creatures to us.
Certainly a cut above the rest.More
