Ten point scale---Villa Aldora 10+; Aldora Divers 10+.  Perfect
accomodations...7 nights in Cameron Suite with full kitchen including full
size fridge, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, all
pots, pans, dishes, and flatware & glassware,bath, one king, one queen,
2 twins.  Huge tiled floor room with a/c, ceiling fan and floor fan.
Immpecably clean. Great maid service. Cost-$878.  Fantastic value!  Hats
off to Steve for his over & above hospitality, town knowledge, diving
knowledge, and for taking us to the store for groceries, beer and tequila:)
Everyone associated with Villa Alsora goes far and beyond what's required
to make their guests have an enjoyable stay.  I cannot state this enough. 
Diving with Aldora Divers was the absolute best of any shore based dive
operation.  Safety first, super friendly and knowledgable DMs...special
thanks to Memo, Edgar, Dario, and Ali for their superb dive leadership and
hospitality. The steel 120 cu ft tanks enabled us to make most dives 80+
minutes.  Used NITROX 32 for 1st dives and 35-36 for second.  Tank flls
average 3400+ lbs and NITROX reading were exceptionally accurate. Diving
was as fun as diving gets on the various dive locations.  We especially
enjoyed Devil's throat, Santa Rosa, Maricabo, Palancar Gardens, and
Columbia Pinnacle. Great viz, strong currents, wonderful aquatic life. 
Aldora Divers arranged for us to dive the ceynotes on the mainland with
seemless coordination with the dive shop in Playa de Carmen.  Superb dives
there as well. I cannot imagine returning to Cozumel and not staying at
Villa Aldora or diving with Aldora Divers.  They deserve your business and
trust.  They earn it.  Thank you to all.
