Ramon's Village is a superb dive resort, with excellent divemasters and
facilities. Our divemaster, Luis, skillfully navigated the boat through the
channels to the reefs (these cuts can be quite choppy) and once we were in
the water he led calmly-paced, interesting dives. There was never a rush to
get into the water or any rush through the dives. The land facilities are
really convenient, with rinse tanks, showers, and storage lockers right on
the dock.  I had some equipment problems with my regulator and the repair
facilities were also on the premises.  The repair tech took care of the
problem even though it was after hours, and he did the job right and with a
smile.  Our rooms were comfortable and clean.  The food was good, the bar
was relaxing, and the setting was fabulous. The beach is immaculate. The
sunrise and sunset views from the resort are spectacular.  The restaurants
in town are only 5-10 minutes away walking on the beach.  Elfie's
restaurant was a treat. Ramon's service to and from the airport was prompt.
Last, I reviewed the Miller report on Ramon's and I really wonder if he was
at the same Ramon's! Our entire dive group had a great time. All are highly
experienced divers.
