          Hi there Viola and Roland, I have a few questions for you... 1. Does your accomodation have bedrooms for a couple? 2. Is it suitable for a couple who have never dived before? 3. For a 7 night stay, is there plenty of things to do? Also insert *romantic things i.e watching sunsets, sunrise walks on the beach? We are after a romantic and relaxing getaway on a budget, with a bit of adventure and snorkelling is a must... Do you think we could find that there? Thank you for your time :)
