10/10 Exceptional

We were a group of 14 pax. 10 of us are all Scuba Divers. We stayed from from a different dive resort for 3 days just to dive and our 3 days here at Safari Island to relax. When the first time we saw this paradise island from our boat, We were like, "WOW! We wished we just stay here all the way for 6 days straight" that was just the first glimpse of the resort. When we experienced the resort, We really wanted to extend our vacation but it can't be done because of our businesses back home. I would highly recommend this resort. Very clean, Fine sand, Great food, Fabulous Island Experience with Great marine life. (We saw a lot of Black Tip Sharks and Sting Rays by just walking by the shore and at night, 4 huge Nurse Sharks and 5 Huge Marble Rays.. Crazy isn't?)

Semi-water bungalow
We read other guests review and chose to stay in a semi-water bungalow which was the right choice since overwater bungalows were very far from the reception, restaurant, and the dive center. The sea life was abundant here and we were happy with what we saw. Nonetheless, we would be quite reluctant to recommend this resort to friends since we discovered that the lunch at this resort was at 12:30 and dinner was at 19:30 which was unusually late for us. My mom has diabetes and she normally has to eat around 11:30 and 18:30. We asked if the resort could provide some fruits or light snack before their scheduled meal time; they said yes but we had to pay extra. This was even when we were on full board. We protested that we already paid for all meals and their scheduled time was unusual but they could not care less. We ended up paying a lot more for food due to their late schedule. Also, they asked us to settle all the bills one day before departure. We had no problem about that but when we went to the front desk at 20:00 to make payment, they said payment could be made only after 21:00 hour. We were repeatedly surprised by their strange schedule. They also includes 3 items not ordered by us in our bills, so be careful. Lastly, the staff at the restaurants, dive center, and crew members were polite and helpful. Lot of staff members at the reception, however, were not hospitable. Not a single smile on their face since our arrival until departure. We will not return.
