Comments This was our 6th visit to LCBR since 1999, and as always, this place just does not dissappoint! The resort is "THE BEST". The resort staff,from management all the way thru to the grounds keepers are attentive and each goes out of their way to assure one's comfort and satisfaction. The accomodations are clean, well kept and hospitable. The food is perhaps the best anywhere. Our last visit was in February 2009, and without a doubt, the quality, quantity and variety of the food service has been kicked up a notch. The kitchen at this place rivals most any restaurant.

What can be said about the diving that has not already been said. Several new sites have been established and are very nice and quite interesting.. The older existing sites are still enchanting. Mixing Bowl continues to be the premier dive site with an abundance of critters, grouper, turtles and the nurse sharks. A couple of the large groupers are as tame as puppies and follow the divers throughout their dives. The walls and reefs are still spactacular, lush and healthy. About the only negative to the diving is the increasing number of lion fish that can be seen on most any dive site and most every dive.

Reef Divers still runs a top notch operation and employs the best dive masters and boat captains. Ron, Sharon, Craig, Phil to name but a few of the staff, still go out of their way to make every dive enjoyable and as easy as possible. Their "customer service skills" are as good as it gets and it's easy to see that to each of them, this is "not just a job". They are excellent in what they do. The boats are clean and well maintained.

Each return visit for us indicates that the bar is constantly being risen and the operation continues to rise to that expectation. We will be back again in early 2012!
