Excellent service. Very pleasant stay. Accommodation was very good and the dive centre very well organised and managed. But the personalised service made the whole difference. Johan & Sim Yee and Julian & Alaitz (la vasca) were coordinating a very good group of people to achieve an outstanding level of service. Special mention to pak Teja at the restaurant and...
