This was our third trip with aldora.  It was several months after the
island was hit by hurricanes Emily and Wilma.  The Reef Club where we
usually go was closed, so we stayed at Aldora Diver's Villa Aldora.
Normally boat pick up is at the villa, but the hurricane took out the pier.
 They took us by van to the boat.   It was a nice change to stay close to
town.  Kay and Greg, the resident hosts were incredibly helpful, friendly,
and did everything under the sun to make the stay wonderful.  The villa is
comfortable, has working phones and wireless internet.  At the last minute
my husband was unable to come, so it was me and my two girls, ages 17 and
11.  My younger diver is limited to 40 ft because of her age- no problem. 
Most of the time it was the three of us and our personal dive master.  They
would take us to whatever dive site we wanted, even when we kept requesting
Yucab.  They accomdated our every whim and desire.  We look forward to our
next visit with Aldora.  They've become part of our family.
