This was a great vacation for three families.  The Allegro is a great all
inclusive 15 minutes south of town.  The dive operation is on site and was
well run.  Two of us were experienced and enjoyed the dives and short boat
rides.  The corals have taken a beating from storms and are no where near
as good as in years gone by.  Two of our party did their open water dives
to become certified and Karin was very professional and accomadating at the
same time.  We also had two 14's do the resort course and were able to do a
40' drift dvie together.  

The resort was the best part.  Great food and plenty of activities for
everyone.  Rooms were clean with cold a/c's. TV's and phones in each room. 
Make sure you upgrade when making your reservation.  Everyone in our party
did not want to leave and all want to come back next year.
