This is the third trip here.  Resort excellent, has pool, beach but no real
swimming as it is too shallow, hammocks on beach that are great but they
need more of them, pier with covered top at the end with benches and
hammocks out there.  Liesel is at the front desk and is great.  Quite nice
little gift shop and you can donate to the Humane Society on the Island
there by buying a tee shirt.   Food good and lots of it, served buffet
style and lots of selections.  We do the meal plan and other than one night
going to Captains Table (excellent, get the conch fritters) we ate at the
resort the whole stay.
Now to the diving.  Sara is new at the dive shop and there is nothing she
cant do for you.  Remembers who you are and things you like and will go to
any lengths to make sure you are taken care of and happy.  She is a great
addition to the staff.  Speaking of staff, we have had Marc and Craig and
divemasters and requested them again they were so good.  This time Marc was
busy and we had Craig and Vickie.  She is also great.  They are both
friendly, knowledgable, easy going except if you dont dive safely and then
they are quick to realize you need help and give advice on how to improve
things and keep an extra eye on you.  Get Craig to tell you about the thong
wearer on the trip to the Tibbetts wreck!  This is a first class operation.
 Boats in great repair, divemasters top notch, gear taken care of for you.
You gear up at the back of the boat, you sit and they bring the gear to
you, and do giant stride into the water.   We had great dives in the week
we were there.  Get the three dive a day package.   We saw lots of turtles,
several sharks, bristle worms, cushion star fish, green and spotted moray
eels, lettuce leaf sea slugs, etc, etc, etc.   Great amount of tropical
fish and lots of small critters.  One day coming back to the boat I spotted
two fish coming toward me that looked BIG.  As they got closer it was a
pair of midnight blue parrott fish that had to be 3-4 feet long.  I have
never seen them this big before and it was spectacular.  
This is a great place for large groups too as everything is here and trying
to more a lot of people to different restaurants is not always easy.  
Great to have a boat big enough to take care of keeping a big group diving
together too.   The Brac has it all and no need for the hassle of Grand
