My wife and I went to this resort just as the new owners were getting to grips with the place, and what a great job they were doing. It was obviously pretty basic, but they did a great job making our stay enjoyable. The food was great. I understand they have developed the place quite a bit since we were there - we must go back sometime in the future.
We enjoyed it because - it was a getaway from 5 Star pampered service of the city and regular hum drum life. That said, as far as we were concerned we were treated like 10 Star guests and it was a wrench to leave. We wanted to stay longer, but we had a schedule to meet to join the rat race again.
We didn't do any tank diving on the trip, but others staying at the resort seemed well satisfied with what was on offer. We did however book a tour on the resorts banker. It was amazing - it felt like we had all the time in the world - a picnic on an island, snorkelling, swimming, meandering in all sorts of inlets and returning to the resort while enjoying a fantastic sunset. To finish off, a banquet of an evening meal.
The new owners (sorry, can't remember their names) really made an effort to ensure we were comfortable and enjoyed ourselves - you can't ask for any more than that.
We loved it!!
