Pardise Villas offers first rate accomodations for persons interested in a
low key and intimate setting.  The service is top drawer -- helpful,
thoughtful and not intrusive.  Guests feel welcomed and appreciated.  The
12 Villas are aligned close to the shore.  The units are nicely furnished
and have kitchenettes.  The grounds are well maintained and the hammocks
next to shore are seductive.  Iguanas roam freely and add to the uniqeness
of the resort.  The Hungry Iguana -- the restaurant adjacent to the villas
-- offers a fairly extensive menu and different specials throughout the
week.  The food and service were consistently good. The restaurant was so
good (and convenient) that we had little incentive to try the (few) other
places on the island.

Paradise Divers is affiliated with the resort.  The PD boat was always the
first boat at the major dives sites.  The boat never had more than 6-8
divers.  The boat was spacious and well equipped.  Divemasters were VERY
knowledgeable about the dive sites.  Divemasters also were excellent
observers of divers' abilities, aiding divers when necessary but not
intrusive otherwise.  Once divemasters had assessed divers' skills,
(qualified) divers could dive their own profiles.  The morning consisted of
2 tank dives with a surface interval on the boat.  We also had the option
of a 3rd dive in the afternoon -- which we did.  

Diving along Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Bay was a delight in many ways. 
Wonderful coral, big fish, large lobsters, an occasional reef shark, and
many turtles!  Excellent visibility with little current.
