Not really a place to put your camera gear on the dive boat.  Large pontoon
style boat.

The Good:  The resort itself was wonderful. The staff was outstanding and
truly cared about its guest.  The rooms were clean and very comfy, with
plenty of hot water and a spotless kitchen.  The food was very good and
plentfull.  The staff was great, expecially the dive staff.  Wonderful
place to go to just relax.

The not so Good:   The diving was very disappointing. The coral were
bleached and just fair, the lack of fish were frightening. No large fish or
sharks the entire week. A few groupers but over all very disappointing.
