[None]Cobalt Coast very comfortable, great views from second story room. 
Arie went out of his way to ensure that we were happy; we were switched to
2 bedroom oceanfront from 2 bedroom villa located at back of the resort
(after I complained only once of roosters keeping us awake at night in
villa, Arie had our problem solved the very next day). Staff at Cobalt are
so nice. Full breakfast before van ride to South Shore and dock at West
Bay. Dove South 3 of 6 days because of uncommon West winds, South dives
nice but luckily we were able to dive North at Ghost Mountain, the Wall and
a few West dives the other 3 days.  Vis. not as good as we hoped for,
dissapointed in lack of large marine life.  Ghost Mountain a favorite with
spectacular black coral.  Did not do Stingray City, 6' swells one day,
unable to do shore dive at Cobalt due to large swells and swift current all
week.  Cobalt is geared toward divers and set up is very convenient with
rinse tanks, lockers. No beach but a short drive to large public beach 10
min., very nice. 
Full breakfast buffet included, full lunch menu with burgers, etc., for
dinner recommend Calypso Grill, good Thai and Indian food near SMB.
