We had a digital camera.  Water buckets provided on board.  We had
videographers in the group and no one complained so the accommodations must
be fine.

This was a group trip sponsored by our local dive shop who booked the trip
through PADI.  Everything was outstanding and the price incredibly low. 
The hotel is located within walking distance so a rental car was not
needed.  The all inclusive food was served buffet style and superb for all
meals.  The service was excellent.  We told the front desk two items in the
room required service and a security guard and repairman were in the room
within an hour to make the repairs.  I felt very safe in the hotel and
surrounding area.
The rental car company across the street from the hotel would not give a
credit for our deposit when we returned the car.  We called our credit
company and they said the deposit was a temporary charge which did
eventually go off our bill.  I would recommend using another company to
rent a vehicle.
The dive shop equipment, boats and staff were all top-notch. The shore
diving was a bit rough to enter due to rocks and surge, but accessible for
beginners.  I made one night boat and one night shore dive.  Both were
fantastic!  I saw three octupi on the shore dive plus numerous other
critters.  We saw our first splendid toadfish on a day dive.  A great week
that we'd repeat and recommend.
