Had a great week!  Staff for shore and dive operation were outstanding! 
Had 6 divers to a boat set-up for 20.  Frederick was a great boat captain,
made getting in and out of the water easy.  Dive masters Jerome and
Danielle were great!  Would spend as much time as you wanted to show you
things, or would let you dive your own dive.  Blue Hole was fabulous except
for the number of boats coming to dive this site.  The rest of the week we
never saw another dive boat at any sites!  The resort is primarily a
fishing resort, but they have integrated the dive operation into it with
ease. We never went wanting for anything.  The resort itself was great, the
rooms we had were brand new.  The kitchen staff were outstanding, even
giving Belezean cooking classes to those who wanted. Kani and Justin were
wonderful and took care of all our needs.  We've dove in a lot of different
places, and this certainly is one of the best! We are already booking again
for next year!
