By the time it was time for me to leave the island, I felt like I was a much better diver. Any questions I had, all three were always...

Needs renovation, louvres missing, LOTS of bed bugs. Lady at reception very unfriendly. Food OK. Next to a village so sometimes get unwarranted visitors. Will never visit this place again. Only thing going for this place is the beautiful view from their highest point.

This is the first time we have used a Backpacker accommodation. We were pleasantly surprised. Being a little older, we had a cottage. It was clean and quiet with its own shower, toilet and vanity. The purpose was to go diving and that we did. The shark diving was the highlight, with the added delight of seeing juvenile Sweet Lip,...
