Marriott Beach Resort is 5-10 minutes West of Downtown. It is very nice
property with all the amenities. There is an on-site Deli, 3 restaurants,
exercise room, spa (massages, facials, etc.), pool w/ bar and a nice beach.
While I was diving, my wife took full advantage of the exercise room and
had a couple of massages. All of the Hotel Staff was very helpful &
friendly. The dining on the Island was a pleasant surprise. The places we
tried ranged from very good to excellent. The on-site dive-op is Caribbean
Sea Sports. The DM’s are very personable. There were anywhere from 5 – 12
divers on the boat each day that I dove. Their SOP is for everyone to jump
in, hang on a line on the surface, then submerge as a group. The DM leads
along the reef until someone reaches 1500 PSI. The group then turns and
heads back. Once they saw me dive,  I was afforded certain freedoms. I was
always the first one in and the last one out! My shortest dive was 52 min.
with a max. depth of 105 fsw. Their boat is a Pro 42 powered by twin 300 HP
Jetstreams. With a max. capacity of 20 divers, it never felt crowded. The
boat does not have a rinse tank but a hose is available for rinsing. The
dive shop has 2 large rinse tanks. Decent house reef.
