Comments The accommodations were very comfortable, not fancy, but then most divers do not come to spend a lot of time in their room. The food was a step above mediocre but it was abundant. The resort is situated on a beautiful beach. The dive operation was top notch, with excellent boats, attentive and enthusiastic divemasters and crew. We never had to schlep dive gear. It was picked up at our room upon arrival, stored conveniently in on-dock storage during the week, and then returned to our room before check-out. They were very flexible. Many divers in our group were taking an underwater photography course and they adjusted the schedule to allow time for class. They were happy to take us out for night dives, even though they had been working all day. I would definitely return to this resort.
