As already mentioned, Tulamben is a great location but only if you want to dive ebery day. As you mentioned, you prefer to dive just a couple of times. I would recommend Candidasa in this case. Tulamben and the Liberty wreck (indeed excellent dives around Tulamben!!) plus other dive sites are not too far away by car/transfer and you will be one of the first to arrive for the day but will be much more centrally located during the days that you're not planning to dive. Try Bali Bubbles in Candidasa, the owner, Jos, is a very friendly and helpful person.
I would opt for Candidasa over Kuta and Sanur because the distance to Tulamben, sitting in a car in Bali traffic for over two hours each way is just no fun!
I may be in bali during May but no for diving, just passing through. Enjoy!
I'm currently in Tulamben and REALLY enjoying the diving
Unfortunately the internet here is slow - here's a clip from one of my videos showing Humphead Parrotfish off the wreck off USAT Liberty, Tulamben. Wish I could upload the whole video - it was an AWESOME dive
