I spent last week at Magic Island Dive resort and it truly is a paradise, I have dived all over the world staying on live aboards and in hotels and Magic Island is up there with the best worldwide. They are slick, professional and yet quitely understated. The food was of the best quailty and superbly cooked and presented. The first night the chef noted my dislikes and without any prompt from me cooked a totally different meal for me alone based on my likes, now that is what I call customer care. The staff call you by your first name from the moment you arrive and there is never anything that is a problem, they are genuinely pleased to make sure you have the best time. The diving was exceptional especially for macro photography, the guides will find anything you tell them and they simply don't give up after finding one, they will go on to find different colours if that is what you need. Accomodation is very comfortable with no Mossi's, the resort is small and therefore has an atmosphere of that of a large extended family rather than a group of strangers talking together just because they are there. I took the opportunity on the last day when I couldn't dive because of flying restrictions to go with a guide into the Jungle and come down the mountain following the river and water falls. Don't hesitate to go on this trip, Raymond my guide has a wicked sense humour, speaks perfect English and he will have you doing things that only Bear Grylls would do. All in all I am now looking to get back there with my photographer buddies as soon as I can, alas it could be next year now. I can honestly give Magic Island my highest accolade, you will not be disappointed.
