Depth limits of around 70-80 feet b/c there were three dives a day. Could
have gone deeper and others did, but I did not want to max out my ability
to dive all three dives.

Absolutely fabulous resort on a 17 acre island.  Diving was good despite
terrible (and unusual) cold and windy weather.  We still did three dives a
day and loved every one. Accommodations are first rate. Small island is
very romantic. Food excellent.  Staff are long term employees and well
treated and appear happy in their work.  It's far from Belize City and
telephone and internet use is expensive and therefore not used by me
because I wanted to get away.  I would go back in a minute!  

But they do have a zillion lionfish that they should try to eliminate. 
They are everywhere!
