Great resort, pretty pool, nice beach, bikes provided, close to San Pedro
but not too busy, very helpful staff, dive boat picked up us right at the
resort's pier and rinse tanks were right near the pool so no dragging
equipment around. No restaurant, but quick walk to many nearby and also a
small market for stocking the kitchenette. 
Suites aren't as "private" as a group of couples would like (one
had a bed in the back of the living room, the loft room was completely open
to the downstairs) but they are pretty and clean.
Amigos were wonderful, dive guide very flexible once he knew our level of
skills, went out of his way to please us. Surface interval at the dive shop
with cold water and fresh fruit. Only 5 minute boat ride to most sites.
Lots of turtles this time, I had seen dolphins in the past but not this
trip. Healthy reef. Fun local town of San Pedro.
