Big Blu is just great, honestly nothing bad to say about the place at all. It is a diving resort so of course the whole point of the resort is people wishing to dive / snorkel which means that you are surrounded by like minded people. It was very quiet when i stayed (thanks Covid) but the staff went above and beyond at all times. The chef and restaurant staff were so nice, they found out what i didnt eat and made sure that there was always something for me.
The rooms are very comfortable and cleaned religiously. Thank you to everyone at Big Blu, particularly my best friends (the 2 gorgeous dive dogs Rocky and his brother!). I will 100% be back for more diving at some point.”
We loved every minute of our stay at Big Blu. Samuel, the manager and all of the staff were friendly, helpful and pleasant. The dive staff was professional, fun and knowledgeable. The accommodations were comfortable and the food was delicious. I would love to come back and spend more time there. The dive sites were beautiful as well. Very relaxing and beautiful location.
Big Blu is a dive centre located in a beautiful spot in the Marin Park in Mafia Island. It has everything thing you need to spend few days, you can dive, relax, snorkelling, go for a whale shark tour… everything is offered in a very professional way. Rooms are comfortable, tidy and with AC. The staff is so helpful and special thanks to Jenny and Simon (GM) and Warren from dive centre, they made my stay so easy and comfortable. The meals are really good, I especially enjoyed the dinners; food, fish, deserts and everything is fresh and baked there, they really have an amazing cook in the kitchen. 100% recommended.
