Down the steps, eat breakfast, saunter to the dive centre and then stroll along the beach to the jetty and the day boat - how easy is that, and the return trip after a wonderful day's diving is just as pleasant

Accommodation was basic. In the liveaboards it was good. The diving and the team are very good though and great value for money. It really is a dive resort so I wouldnt reccommend it here if you dont dive. The resturant on site does great fish and the prices perfect. Soho square is close by and much nicer than the...

Everything is done so that you can dive as often and in various places you wish. The restaurants are good, breakfast in front of The red sea is just great. Rooms are simple, but clean, and The architecture of The village is very charmful. Staff always helpful. We recommend strongly.

I was looking for a low key spot for good diving and relaxing and this place fit the bill perfectly. There were only a few other guests so the place was quiet. Food was decent at a good price.
