Great service but lack of corals

The trip is very organised where food and general service is excellent. However the reefs that we were brought to were largely destroyed where there is a serious lack of fishes or sea life. Is thats the only reefs that this tour is allowed to bring people to, then I don't see much point in recommending even though everything else is excellent.
