Rofino and Ruis, excellent captain/divemaster and respectful of skill
level.  Alvin the dive op manager very helpful and knowledgeable.  Lionfish
are quite frequently spotted and Divi is participating in a program to
"remove" them.  The hotel is a bit worn and tired, but clean. 
Grounds could use the attention of a gardener.  Overall an excellent value
for the price paid.  Easy diving overall.  It rained almost the entire week
we were there which is not normal for May (took its toll on vis).  Rofino
as boat captain was very cognizant of safety issues that may arise with the
weather and briefed us in a knowledgeable manner. Locker facilities on the
dock were excellent, best I've ever had for a "DIY" operation
(not valet diving).
