Comments My spouse and I are repeat guests at the resort and have always loved the operation and diving there. Great Caribbean diving, although fewer fish this trip. Good visibility and always a thrill to see large spiny lobsters and sea horses on the reef. We dove with nitrox and enjoyed long dives. They use a Newton 40 dive boat which is comfortable even when full of divers. The resort remains a comfortable delight with a kind of Robison Crusor feel and informality and wonderful dining.
