We arrived in the morning after a hellish bus trip from Singapore and a 2h ferry ride. The rooms for us were not ready which is a bit of a pain after a almost 16 journey but since we were also hungry we got some food first. The food is OK and eatable but it's not outstanding. Some items are good and prepared with care others are just typical canteen items. But I was there to dive and not too eat. the rooms are clean and efficient. Cleaning service is good and supplies you with some water. the pool area and the beach front are nice and you can hang-out and relax there. To sum it up: the resort is fine, to get there is a pain in the neck, and the dive center is another story.
About the dive center: on the first day about 40 people arrived at the same time at the dive center. all were scheduled to meet at 2pm. of course there was chaos and we were in the water by 4pm. at the end of the 2nd dive it was almost 8pm and I didn't sign up for the night dive. the dive sights were OK. Visibility was very bad but during the 1st day they managed to send a dive master with 4-5 people down. during the 2nd day we were suddenly 20 people with one dive master. Since the visibility was still bad, everybody came up with his buddy in a different place. since I had a bad headache this day, I skipped the other 2 dives and spend a nice afternoon at the pool.
think the dive center and the hotel were a bit overwhelmed by the crowd during the long holiday weekend. I'm sure the place is better when it's less packed. the diving didn't impress me though.
