    Hi, we are staying at this hotel in October for a week, and I was just wondering about room safes? Are there any, if not what did other guests do especially if they are out diving and not able to keep their cash on them?

    I have clients coming to you for the purpose of scuba diving. How do they make arrangements for their dives?

    E-mail One Ocean Dive Centre. They are very helpful and respond quickly. I would post their e-mail here but Trip Advisor won't allow it, so just go their website by Googling it.
