[Took the red-eye from Houston-direct. Got in at 5:30 a.m. We were picked
up immediately and brought to the resort, only to find we couldn't check in
until noon - not what we were told.  One in our group had no hot water, and
were moved.  Pool bar was being built. All 3 restauraunts had very good
food, but don't eat in groups because the service will become super slow.
In town  - Capriccio's - Italian  - always very good (make reservations)
Pasa Bon Pizza - good,  KFC  etc.  Large comfortable rooms, housekeeping , 
good.  Diving _ our 3rd visit so I set up with Simone by e-mail to have a
group boat with Ebby and Erwin  (divemaster & boat captain)  e-mails
were promptly handled and everyone was pleased with  the whole diving
experience.  We all dived free nitrox  15-22 dives   big plus.  The crew
watched some of our newer divers well.  Later in week we spotted large
schools of dolphins - Ebby got the boat ahead of them and we snorkeled and
had video taken - what timing.  Truck and scooter rental on te property.  
We'll be back soon, with plenty of new friends.
