We stayed in Villa 3 and enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon drinks looking on the sea view deck. The room itself was large and comfortable with good AC. Food was always exceptional. Diving was very good, the staff made it easy,...

Groups are small, dive masters very professional and friendly, equipment for rental is very good. Beyond diving, the resort staff is also very friendly and personable, particularly at the restaurant where service is...
