The dive operators at Reef Divers were excellent.  We had Coco and Ron as
our divemasters.  They were both VERY knowledageable about the local dive
sites and life, as well as just nice folks.  They were concerned about
diver safety without being controlling.  Before each dive whichever
divermaster wasn't going in the water, drew a map, and did the dive
briefing.  I found the maps were excellent, and gave a great overview of
the area, including notes for macro life.  The dives were spectacular.  The
reef is unbelievably alive, thanks to low numbers of tourists, as well as
enforced marine conservation diving laws, like NO TOUCHING ANYTHING <I
think all dive locations should have this, but thats just me>.  There
were fish, well, everywhere.  On the last dive of the trip, I remember
telling my wife after the dive that I couldn't believe we were getting
bored of seeing honeycomb cowfish and queen triggerfish.  The walls were
spectacular, some of them being as sheer as a skyscraper, from 15', to
6000'.  Neat!  I think over the course of the week there was one so-so dive
and the rest were great.

Ok, now to the bad.  While others in the group didn't feel the same way I
did, I found the food at the resort bad enough that I lost ten pounds while
on vacation.  My high school was significatnly better.  The accomodations
were ok.  All the rooms are laid out around the pool and bar, which is
generally ok.  On our fist night, however, after spending like 18 hrs
getting there, it was karaoke night, and instead of sleeping, we got the
joy of hearing other people sing, badly.  

The resort staff were all very nice, and the barteneder, Sue was a stand

I would go back again, but I'll bring my own food somehow.
