The staff is very, very good.  They make it very easy for you by having you
sit on the dive platform and bringing your gear to you.  You never have to
walk anywhere with your gear on.  The boats do not have heads, however, and
the trip to Bloody Bay Wall was rough.

We dove the same sites more than once because of current, and were blown
out one morning by a storm, but it was hurricane season.  The rate for the
package was very good, but we were told there was unlimited shore diving at
the resort, and there is NONE.  The "unlimited shore diving"
involves renting a car, etc.  So, we chose to buy the single afternoon dive
most days.  This drove up our cost significantly.  Nitrox was $12 a bottle.

The restaurant is fabulous - we had prime rib, lamb, baked ham, lobster and
steak, crab legs, homemade soups and desserts.  That was the best part of
the trip!  The resort is badly in need of renovation, and was undergoing
renovation while we were there.  They have added a new beach bar, which is
very nice.  We spent most of our evenings there, unless it was raining!
