Our first trip here, and we were not disappointed.  The staff went out of
their way to serve us, the units were reasonably well appointed, and the
food was excellent.  Our dive gear was handled for us before and after
diving, the briefings were very good, and the divemasters allowed the buddy
pairs to follow or go off on their own.  Since there was virtually no
current it was easy to navigate the sites back to the boat.  The boats
themselves were comfortable and we seldom had more than 10 divers.

Very little to do on the island outside of diving, but bicycles and kayaks
were provided for exploring.  There is quite a bird habitat and plenty of
chances to see birds not often seen in any large numbers in the Carribean. 
Lots of very large (5'-6') iguanas in the lesser populated areas.

A number of our fellow visitors were there for fishing, and they all
reported a successful trip for bonefish and tarpon, although only a few
permits were caught.

The bar and pool made a great gathering place, and the bar operated most of
the day on the honor system.  No alcohol was allowed for anyone who was
signed up for a dusk or night dive- not a bad rule.  Fresh fruit was
generally available and coffemakers were in the rooms for the early

We had a good breeze blowing all week, which meant no bugs but generally
rough seas.  Had to bypass a few sites several days due to the seas making
reboarding very difficult.

Many of our fellow divers were repeat visitors, which says a lot for the
consistency of service over the years.  We try not to repeat destinations,
but would return here with no hesitations.  Peter, the owner, is truly
committed to running a good operation.
