The day was overall excellent but the buffet lunch left a lot to be desired. The prawns appeared to have been frozen, the chicken wings had no flavour and the hot meal, curry, was inedible. I would recommend guests book for the semi-submarine as this was the absolute highlight of the day

We had a lovely day. We didn't find the snorkeling to be very good; maybe because of the wind, maybe because we didn't know the best spots. Where we were told to stay was too shallow to see much. Very glad we added on the glass bottom boat tour so we could actually see more.

Its all about the weather and we got away with it ! The glass bottom boat was really good and would recommend. My son was on crutches and unable to swim and this was an excellent way to see the corral and learn about the underwater environment from our tour guide who was excellent. We even saw a turtle from the pier as we were departing. The lunch was ok, the lunch venue (a boat docked on the end of the pier) a little tired.
