Owner of Cobalt coast (Arri) is a consumate host.  He makes you feel like
you are his oldest and dearest guest who has stayed at hotel dozens of
times. Accomodations were better than expected.  Dive buddy and I shared a
1 BR hotel suite over looking water. Perfect set up for a week of diving.. 
Maintainance at hotel was all up to date.  Rooms always clean, pool clean. 
We got an excellent rate for hotel and dive package so very happy.
Breakfast included was great and service fast to get you to the morning
dives in time. Location is remote so rental car is a must.

Dive Tech:  Staff was very safety concious and did a very good job of
ensuring safety, while at same time giving freedom to enjoy the dive. 
Tanks always at 3000psi or better.  Maybe one or 2 that were under. Only
rule I remember was back on boat with 500 PSI or 1 hour.  Dive Masters did
great job of briefing on each dive and locations were diverse enough that I
did not feel like we repeated any dives.  Something different everytime.

Staff was friendly, but not overly so.  I could not complain about them at
all.  I don't need a lot of attention so their style suited me fine. Very
professional.  I do not agree with other post that they need motivation. 
Always helpful, but not falling all over you.

Did 2 night dives at their new operation at Light House point.  My first 2
night dives ever so I have to say I really enjoyed it, but I can not be
impartial here because who doesn't like their first ever night dive.

All in all I would not hesitate to recommend Cobalt Coast and Dive Tech. 
In fact I would go there again without hesitation.

I highly recommend doing a shore dive at Devils Grotto in downtown.
