Comments Reef Divers dive operation was first rate. They took special requests for sites, were very accommodating, and the dive guides were friendly and informative. I feel the only shortcoming was a limit to the amount of time we could dive. It becomes very obvious to guides who can dive, and who cannot. While they let you do your own thing, or follow the excellent guides, they limit your bottom time. They are not super strict, and no one came down on us, but in an effort not to be the rogue divers, we came up around the time they set. Of course, we both came up with well over 1,000psi in our tanks. Nitrox fills are $10 more so I felt like we were tossing $3 in the pond after each dive. The diving was amazing. Huge cudas, giant swim throughs out into the deep. Vis good, guides great, very healhty environment and tons of fish. Room cheesy but large enough. Food okay. After talking to others, food was better than most other resorts, which is suprising. We feel better with Pre fixe menu's instead of buffet style. But it was okay. The resort itself is okay. Way over priced drinks and they nickel and dime you to death. We spent close to 3k for the ocean front, and they charged us $1.20 for copies of log book pages. That is very petty. Water shortage was not clearly defined upon arrival. The orientation is Monday and we came in on Wed. Because of this, we were made to feel like criminals for asking for dry towels. Again, 3k for a vacation should equal absolute service. Lots of talk of sea lice, wife got hit first day with one, but nothing after that. We did keep the Sea Safe on, however. No one else got hit. I would recommend this place, but I hope our customer feedback cards are taken to heart and they make these few changes. Nothing else to do but dive, drink, float in the pool and sleep, oh yeah, and feed the huge iguanas.
