Comments 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!
