Paradise Villas was perfect, exactly what we anticipated based on prior
research.  Quiet, clean and spacious villas more than met our needs.  The
grounds are well maintained, and any problems (noisy air conditioner,
wobbly ceiling fan) were attended to and fixed the same day (while we were
out diving).  Dive operation provided no fuss, no muss diving experience. 
Dive Masters Rod and Vince provided enough informaiton prior to the dive
and identified unusual creatures during the dive, but left you to your own
experienced devices otherwise.  Just want we wanted. Because you could
elect to dive on your own,my husband and I spotted an eagle ray on the sand
and spent a half-hour watching it feed and soar.  Several turtles, and alot
of macro life, blennies, juvenile crynoids, pipefish, pipe horse, and
jawfish (with eggs).  We had a wonderful time, and booked for next year
before we left.  The rating for shore diving and beginner diving is there
because not applicable was not available.  We did not choose to shore dive
and we are not beginners.
