The hotel operation & service has improved greatly with the new owners.
All rooms look out over the ocean. The rooms are good sized with two beds.
You have a balcony and shower. It is a small hotel and the owners and staff
make you feel like family. The resturant meals are excellent. I find them
in the same class as the better resturants in town. My diving package
included breakfast all days and lunch on diving days. One on the house
dinner is also included. 
The dive operation has fast boats and a larger one. There are new double
rinse tanks along side the diver rinse shower. The staff makes every effort
to make your dive experience a great one. We dove with Divemaster Jorge on
all of our dives. The briefings were informative about the reef, current
conditions, best dive depth, etc. without being over long. He is very
helpful at finding hard to see critters. The boats carry O2 and surface
intervals come with fruit and bread. The reefs are improving since
hurricane Wilma. Lots of turtles, fish, lobster and crab. Fewer nurse
sharks than I've seen before. Shore dives are free and there are resident
eels and octopus just off the shop. Some Eco reefs were installed while I
was there and should attract more life soon. Overall it was a great trip
and I look forward to diving here again next year.
