The diving was excellent and the DMs were great. However, when I booked a private, fan room and heated shower, and this was not available when I arrived, I was placed in an alternative accommodation - the AJP hotel. The room was not at all nice - the bed didn't feel like it had clean sheets, there was not even a sink in the bathroom. This does not reflect well on Big Blue if this is a recommended alternative accommodation. I was glad to move out to one of BB's own private, fan room even though this had no heated shower. At least this had obviously clean sheets and a sink.
Finally, the cost of the all day trip (3 dives, breakfast, lunch 3800THB) seemed quite steep compared to the half day trips (about 1400 THB). And it didn't count towards the number of dives (and therefore the final cost of the dives) I did during the week.
