Comments 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.
