Not much at all, infact one dive master dropped a wrist mounted computer
over the side of the boat on a tag line to let it time out because it
needed more of a safety stop. The diver who came up too fast was on the
boat.

I have to say over all my experience was pretty good. I did get a pair of
shoes stolen from my room. I guess they needed the shoes more than I did.
The owners reimbursed me for the cost of the shoes. Hot water was all or
nothing, we managed. Rooms were large and comfortable and very convenient
for diving. In spite of the misfortune I will stay there in the future. The
good out weighed the bad.
Blue Angel was good to dive with if you are an independent diver. Choose
one of the more safety oriented dive masters. 
I found one dive master to be a bit offensive, he criticized peoples
equipment, their personality traits, their body types, their race, just
about everything. I didn't like that at all. He is also the one who hung
the dive computer over the side of the boat to run down the timer.
Dont let this keep you from using the facility or the dive op, I think
every place has their ups and downs. I just wanted to be very honest about
the services provided so others could make an informed decision.
If you are looking for inexpensive, clean, convenient, quiet, friendly, and
helpful place this is it. 
The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Good food, and conveniently
located above the dive shop.
FYI... you cant book this hotel with a flight package, however you can book
into another hotel with a flight package for 1-2 days then relocate to this
hotel with a dive/lodging package to save hundreds of dollars.
