Comments I really enjoyed the diving and solitude. When I was there, I was the only guest at the resort for the first 4 days of my week there!! Eddie Usher met me at the dock for the boat ride out of Dangriga,this island/resort has been in his family for many,many years.Before I did my 1st dive, George the boat captain, told me that I was going to be suprised.All I can say is that was a understatement.Chad was my dive guide for the first 4 days and he was great at finding things.He let me dive as slow as I wanted and take pics.I have never been the only diver before,but I know that I LIKE it.I was amazed at the amount and size of the sponges.Coral was in great shape,schools of fish like I've never seen before.For the last 2 days of my diving week,Kitty, Chad's new wife and other dive guide,also let me dive my own profile.She was great at finding those little things,I've never seen spotted drum as small as my finger nail before!!The cooking staff,Aroura and Fel did their best to spoil me with great food and deserts.They now have Wi-Fi at "the over the water" bar now.All that I could think of the last no dive day was I wonder how soon I can get back here!!If you like diving and kicking back I really do not know of a better place to enjoy yourself.Thank You Isla Marisol staff for making me one of the group!
