Despite being the center for Cathy Church, camera facilities for your own
equipment was sparse.  No special facilities for multiple cameras on boat. 
They would all be stacked in a water filled container on each other.

Services were poor.  Arrived only to find that we were expected to shlepp
our gear and luggage ourselves to the room two parking lots away without
assistance or even a cart.  Even on the boat trips, had to shlepp own gear
and even change tanks.  For the same price can get class AA service at Reef
Divers at the Brac or Little Cayman.
Some boats do not have a marine head.  No comfort zones on boat for
snorklers.  Dive staff ws good.  But, only changed tanks for the meek.  On
day of departure, taxi did not arrive despite our request for arranging 3X
night before.  When another did as replacement, she refused to pick up
because Sunset House rate was not adequate.  Did not even let us offer to
pay her. She screamed at the security guard as she left.  This was at
5:30am.  Manager did not get up.  Security guard was then kind enough to
transport us.  Thus after awakening at 4:30am,  we only arrived at airport
at 6:15am; only an hour before departure.
This adventure was a surprise as generally these resorts can't wait to get
americans out when trip is over.
