Comments Resort is beautiful: rooms spacious, with AC & ceiling fans, very clean. Food is the best I have had at a dive resort. Topside attractions are numerous: jungle tours, kayaking, hiking, caving, Mayan ruins...

Diving the barrier reef was only "good". Glover's atoll was great.
One dive boat was out of commission. The one we used could accomodate 8-10 comfortably, 12 in a pinch. One dive we had 14. Bottom time is limited by tables (even if you had a computer) because every dive was a drift dive.

Sand flies were horrible! Twice as bad as in Roatan.

Overall I really enjoyed Hamanasi and would highly recommend it.
