We used Ecologic Divers for our check out dives.  They were professional
and courteous.  Since it was off season, we had a dive master (including
trainees) to student ratio of 1 to 1 for our check out dives.  We were
lucky to have two trainee dive masters with our group.  The Hol Chan Marine
Reserve was a nice place to do out check out dives since the dives are not

We stayed at Xanadu and enjoyed it.  We decided to stay in a resort closer
to town so we could easily walk around.  The roads north or south are
difficult to travel (south of Victoria House and north of the Palapa Bar),
and water taxis are the fastest way into town.  If you do not mind staying
at a resort that requires using  water taxis, then the resorts to the north
or south can be very luxurious and nice.  We read on trip advisor that it
can be a pain to use the water taxis (see Portofino reviews).  If you want
to avoid the water taxis, then you need to get an alternative way to get
around. Many resorts offer bikes or discounted golf cart rentals (full
price is >$300 USD for a week).
