A mere 200 metres from the Liberty Wreck, Tulamben Dive Terminal is ideally situated right on the seafront with its own private stretch of shoreline overlooked by the swimming pool and a tropical garden. The resort is in the prime location to dive Tulamben and, unlike other nearby accommodations, is not used as a gathering point for daytrippers.

"The dive equipment was fantastic, as was the holiday accommodation. Most the staff were quite friendly - particularly the restaurant staff. Some of the staff could have been more approachable at times. Transport was always on time and of good condition. The diving environment was spectacular and your dive guides are able to find every small, beautiful creature out there - very impressive! The scuba diving was the best part. I really loved the set up of the resort, relaxed atmosphere and visually beautiful setting. My partner was a non-diver and he also liked the relaxed nature of the resort. I appreciated the dive crew always checking in if I was doing a dive and having all my gear ready to go and set up every time." - Sarah Centofanti, Australia, 6 January 2011 ...
"Very nice resort, comfortable and conveniently located. All of my party were pleased with the accomodation. They also waited for us at the airport as one of our party had lost luggage to report. Service at the resort, however, was slow, and they should have given us an orientation right at the very beginning. We missed a couple of dives for that reason due to their DM and boat schedule. Moreover, for several dives we had to guide ourselves (there were not always enough DM available). Also, it was very very difficult to identify personnel to help us with queries - often had to come back several times to find someone." - Jeffrey Lee, Hong Kong, 22 December 2010 ...
