The resort is lovely, service is very good, the food is excellent. There
were not large schools of fish,but we saw many things we hadn't seen
before. Divemasters are excellent, and give a print out of your dives, what
you saw and depth at the end of stay. The staff is excellent. This is a
pricy resort, but worth the money. We hired a fishing guide to do some bone
fishing..I would sitck to diving, they are more into diving at this
resort..it used to be a big time fishing resort..fishermen go to Turneffe
Flates resort, and there are not many divers there from what we heard.We
chose this resort after reading another review on this site and contacting
the writer..he had the same good experience at this resort. I would go
back, it was very relaxing and enjoyable diving..a full service resort. Hot
chocolate served on the boat after the night dive! Go  just before the high
season, best deal, good weather, and not a lot of divers..there were 9
divers on the island and 35 staff....we are spoiled now!
