Comments Reef Divers is an outstanding dive operator. If you want wall diving in the Caribbean this is definitely the place to go a hardpan top at 15 to 35 feet and then a drop to 6000 feet lush in very healthy hard and soft corals and a generous assortment of fish! A normal day included two dives in the morning, followed by a return to the resort for lunch, and then one afternoon dive. Boat was brand new and well designed for diving with lots of room. DMs Dottie, Adrienne, and Ralphy were quite knowledgeable and very pleasant. Whichever DM was not going in the water would draw a detailed map on a white board and give a thorough briefing. During a surface interval Dottie did a rendition of a sprinting lettuce sea slug which was unforgettable! The resort is laid out in a two story fashion with most of the rooms facing the bar and swimming pool, although there are also a number of rooms that look out over the ocean. We had an ocean view room, which was great, but it was downstairs which we didnt like due to the sonic transparency of the ceiling from the foot traffic above. Not what I would have expected from a room advertised as luxury. I would definitely suggest an upstairs room if you want quiet in the evening. The bar was always a lively place to hang out before dinner, and the bar tender was a very personable cute blonde. The food was buffet style, plentiful, varied, and quite good so bring your appetite!
