The diving was great. The visibilty the marine life and the health of the
coral. I took my three kids diving with me ages 11,13,15 and they had a
great time diving. We did 12 day dives and one night dive that was ausume.
Incrediable views and very easy diving. Depth ranged from 90 feet to 50.
After the first dive where they checked my kids out they permitted them to
go as deep as 90 feet which they handled with no problem. The dive boats
were decent and the crew and dive masters were very helpful.We averaged
about 10 people to a boat not too crowded. 
The Reef Club (All Inclusive)is all right accomidations. The beds are hard
and the room is bare bones but fairly clean.Thin walls- you can definitely
hear your neighbor. The food is a buffet. The breakfast is supprisingly
good with made to order eggs/omletts. A lot of fruit and cereals. Lunch and
dinner is pretty plain. They do have two resteraunts that you can eat at 
if you can get reserevations at, a Italian and a Bistro that both were
suprisingly good - not great but good. They also have a grill pool side for
lunch and late night that has burgers and hot dogs that me and the kids
lived off of mostly. Bars are limited in what they have but if your not to
picky can survive just fine. They have kayaks, wind surfers and snorkel
gear included on the beach. The beach is the best point of the resort,
sandy and decent snorkeling. They also rent jet skis, parasailing and other
pay for options. The overall inviroment is kind of like a fraternity party,
a lot of drunks a lot of drinking. The guest tend to be loud and rude. I
say this because if you are a group of dive buddies looking to go diving
and partying for 4 or 5 days it probably is a great place and deal. If you
are a family looking for a weeks vacation diving and relaxing you may want
to take this in consideration. We stayed last year at the Iberostar same
time frame and also all inclusive and found it deffinitely more upscale
with basically the same set up just everything a notch above. The Iberostar
is about $100 a week more per person for the same package. If you are a
family I would highly recomend it. If your the group of friends looking for
a short dive trip the reef club is a bargin for the price.
