This was truely and outstanding crew and resort! The rooms were great, and
included wireless connections for those like us who needed to stay
connected. Everyone was helpful, had a smile and a cheery word, and the
divemasters called you by name from day 1. We were to have gone three weeks
prior, but due to Hurricane Dean, we delayed a few weeks. Even though the
resort told us all was well the day after (they had lost their dock)we had
been to areas thus affected before, and decided to wait. The dive crew
concurred with our decision when we arrived there. A word to the wise-
sometimes dive resorts bend the truth not to lose customers.
   The dive profiles were 100 ft. on the first dive, and 60 on the 2nd. (I
wish there had been an afternoon 1 tank dive.) The briefings are superb,
and there were 2 dive masters in the water with us. Our group was never
larger than 9, and dive times were unrestricted- at least an hr. each dive.
Small Nitox tanks are available, The walls are very pretty, with many swim
throughs. Beautiful seafans,sponges, and gorgonians. Fish life not as
diverse and abundant as Bonaire- but the walls make up for it. Our favorite
area to dive was the north shore, our favorite site- Babylon Wall. On the
other side, Snapper Hole - one of the swim throughs there was so thick with
silversides that the vis. was 1 ft! Tarpons were hanging out in their
midst- it was etherial.
   Restaurants- they were all good: Over the Edge - excellent grilled
lobster and shrimp, Lighthouse- excellent Suckling pig, Portofino's-
Grouper. Vivine's Kitchen- honest food for an honest price.
   No problem with bugs or mosquitos when we were there.
