Comments Generally, this continues to be an excellent operation. This was our 4th trip to LCBR, and when it comes to the top of the list for diving, resort accomodations and food, this resort continues alwas be at the top. Rooms are still comfortable, but the housekeeping seems to have slipped just a bit since our last visit. Mostly, the maids changed the towels and washed the floors. That was about it. Some little maintenance issues in/with our particular room need to be addressed before they turn into "big" maintenance issues. Overall though, still a bit better some some places in the Carribean.

The grounds need some work. In previous visits, the sand was raked long before the first person stirred. This last trip, we rarely saw the sand being raked. I'm certain this little lack of attention to the detail has accounted for the unprecedented quantity of bugs in the area. When it was calm outside, you were hard pressed to sit through all the bug hits. The bus were much worse that what we had ever experienced at this resort.

The diving remains excellent, same with the dive operations. They know they have the best diving in the whole area, and continue to take care of what they have. The boats were excellent, and I'm continually impressed by some of the dive crew that has remained a part of this operation over the years. Ron and Dottie are still there, continue to display a level of concern and expertise that is not equaled anywhere else. By the fact that they have been there 5+ years now must say something for the operation, boats and overall customer service attitude of the dive operation. Still Top Notch!!

Foood.......only about one word for the food. It continues to be EXCELLENT. The chef still puts out three meals a day that are the highlight of the whole operation. Really a class operation with good food, good quality and plenty to eat. And of course, the desserts are the highlight of mealtime.

Still one of the better overall operations we've been too, but management needs to keep an eye on some of the fundamental building blocks of the peration to asssure that it doesn't slip into a little bit of dis-repair.
