Our bure (bungalow) was situated about 5 minutes from the beach (and the bar) and was built so it stood on stilts. The only problems with the room were:-

It was barely big enough for a double bed
It was just the bedroom
The mosquito net competely nullified the effect of the fan

Apart from that it was good.

We had separated from the Irish and Kai-leigh because they were in dorms, but still had the Geordies (as neighbours) and the Swedes.

There were only 4 showers for the whole resort and about 4 toilets, but this never seemed to prove a problem.

I did a scuba dive. It was absolutely amazing. It was just me, and a Scottish girl called Michelle with the instructor. We dove striaght off the beach into the reef (which is protected around the resort). After getting used to how I should breathe and getting to the bottom, the 40 minutes diving I did seemed to pass faster than 40 seconds. It was incredible (I may have to enact the help of the thesaurus in a minute because I am running out of superlatives). There were so many fish of all different colours and so many of them seemed to glow as if under an untraviolet light. The coral itself I could take or leave but the fish were amazing.

We got taken back and I was disappointed that my dive was finished, the instructor said that around Manta Ray it was the best diving and I'd recommend that if anyone was to do it only once, this would be the place to do it.
