I stayed at CBR for 16 nights while I completed a professional-level BSAC underwater course offered by Oceans Below out of Koh Toh, Thailand. There were 2 students, me and another woman from Australia, and two instructors, so we had one-on-one attention. My only complaint is that the time went by two fast and I wish that I could repeat...

If you are looking at this place it’s probably because you want to go to see the islands but don’t want to pay the high prices of Pom Pom island or other resorts. We stayed for 4 nights for this reason and didn’t want to leave. The chalets are nice and spacious, and of a decent standard. Some of the...

Heading out to the island we were caught in a huge storm and found ourselves wishing the resort had more than the inadequate boat we were on - little more than a dive boat with side flaps that didn't reach all the way, leaving us drenched and cold by the time we reached the island! Staff was very welcoming though,...

We recently stayed at CBR for 5 days 4 nights. We got a good deal from the resort at the previous dive expo (MIDE). The rooms are big, there is aircon and hot water showers. My only beef about the room is that it can get a little funky if not aired properly. Maybe an extractor fan in the toilet...

This is definitly a diving place so don't go if you don't dive. But if you are already a diver or if it is your first experience this is the right place. Don't expect a nice hotel with facilities. This is more a guesthouse style hotel, with very simple rooms and basics facilities. But be sure that you will find...

The accommodation is on tiny island in the Celebes sea so you practically have the place to yourself. the rooms are basic, but very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The food is OK - served at set times during the day in the communal area. Turtles visit very frequently to eat the sea grass so the chances of seeing and...

Beautiful location with fantastic views. Loved hanging out at the dock (saw a HUUUGE turle there) and the beach during evening hours. Food was actually alright but gets repetitive after a while. Great value nevertheless especially considering snorkeling is included as part of the package. Extremely friendly staff who is helpful yet knows when to keep the distance. highly recommended....

I was a little worried about what we would find when we turned up as Celebes was so much less expensive than other places we had found nearby. I have nothing bad to say about the place though. We were picked up at the airport and taken in a shiney new minibus to our hotel, picked up in the morning...
