Comments This was our first visit to LCBR, and it won't be our last! All staff were very friendly and helpful, the diving was easy and gorgeous (despite the outer edges of Hurricane Rina making the first part of the week intermittently rainy and cloudy, as well as unbearably muggy), and the food was fantastic and plentiful! The idea of dive restrictions chafed at first, but you quickly got used to it, and didn't feel like you were missing out. We saw at least 1, if not 3, sharks on every dive, as well as numerous turtles on every dive. The divemasters were fairly helpful, and found both seahorses known to hang out on the wall. This is concierge diving and it was really nice to sit down on the back of the boat, putting on your fins, while the crew got your tank and helped you don it, then stand up and stride into the water. Despite the rain and clouds, we went out every day, and it was usually a 20-25 minute boat ride to any site. The meals were just stupendous! Buffet style with loads of options - breakfast always had an omelet station for made to order ones, while there were scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, as well as pancakes/waffles/french toast option - one day there was even Eggs Benedict, and cheese blintzes! Lunch always had meats and cheeses for sandwiches, along with 2-3 cold salads and 2-3 hot entrees, and of course, desserts. Dinner would be a choice of pork, chicken, beef or fish (usually 3 of the 4) and the sauces and seasonings were top notch! Of course, there were several salad options and soup, too. We avoided the bar next to the pool because of smoke, but it always seemed to have quite a crowd. By the end of the week, we finally got WiFi in our room (they had just been updating/adding servers). We stayed in the beachfront building behind the dive shop, and the quiet and privacy was quite welcome, as we were a solo couple, in contrast to the big groups from dive shops. Our only suggestions we left on our comment card, were to get mats outside each room to wipe sand off before entering the rooms, and have more rooms with king beds. There were some issues with couples who were initially assigned to 2 double beds, but in the end, everyone was accommodated.
