Mermaids Resort - Dive Center: Perfect for single divers and party goers

Greatest people in town!

Note: The main resort is up the hill a few blocks. This stay was at one of the 9 rooms that their beachside dive shop maintains upstairs.

I swear, this place has the coolest staff in town. The diveshop manager is Pinoy but is hands-down the coolest person on the isle. He has spent a great many years abroad and can likely speak your own native language better that yourself. All the staff speak english very well, (not the pidgin english so common in the phils), and don't hesitate to help you.

Security - The bar downstairs also doubles as the security station which is staffed 24/7. From the upper level, one can look down into this area. These guys are very keen on who goes
in/out of the rooms because of the nearby entertainment.

Location - 2 things.....

1. For diving, it's right on the beach. Can't get any better than that and their staff carries your equip the few extra feet.

2. Nightlife - by now, you should already know that there is mostly only one main form of extracurricular night activities here and this place is one small 15 second walk from the main strip. Life is good :) .

Restaurant Location - All you have to do is step outside your upstairs door and look towards the beach......and there's your own private entrance to Cap'n Greggs restaurant. Cap'n Greggs is easily the best place in town to eat and amazingly, its cheap with huge portions.

All the rooms are upstairs and they built a perfect little connecting path from the Mermaids upper platform into the Cap'n Greggs main dining room floor.
