The staff at Watercolours are really what make this resort fantastic. They really go above and beyond for their guests and that's what makes it so special. Add to that a great location (quiet but close enough to the less quiet areas), well appointed rooms and great food (free breakfast!). Just make sure you contact them prior to booking with...

Amazing time! Small hotel with 9 rooms. Resort Manager Chester is very kind. He will help you with anything you need. If you're in to diving they do a 1 hr certification and get you set up to go day or night diving. Several instructors on staff. Restaurant is nice. All tables are outside. Ate breakfast each morning which was...

My girlfriend, I and a few friends went diving with Watercolors recently and had a fantastic experience. Initially my girlfriend only intended on doing the discover scuba course but decided to do her open water because the centre was so flexible in terms of timing and her instructor, Karlo, was brilliant. Karlo put her at ease straight away and was...

Our instructor Karlo was amazing, very patient with my boyfriend who was doing his PADI open water, very professional and patient. Thorough teaching in a relaxed environment. He learnt one to one! I went on an advanced dive with him and he was excellent at pointing out fish and helping with any problems I had. 5 stars would definitely recommend...

Karlo Agao was our dive instructor for our Discovery Dive. Despite the fact that Mother Nature and the coast guard were not working in our favor making it so that ALL boats were prohibited from going out, he still made it a very good experience. I was a little (or a lot) apprehensive about breathing underwater, but Karlo was able...

The hotel is super nice with amazing staff especially Gretchen. The surroundings are a bit noisy which is a pity. Night time you hear the bumpa bumpa together with the sound of the sea. Breakfast does not have big choice but is good, I would have liked more fruit and some yoghurt and dark bread. I asked for dark bread...
