CSS operations right at hotel.  I could see from my window.  Checkin for
morning dive boat at 8:30 am, with departure at 9 am.  Return about 12:30
most days.  Free shore diving on paid boat days.  Set up and change your
own tanks.  No head on boat. Staff friendly and will help if you ask.  One
day, I was the only diver, and they still took me out.  Reefs healthy, but
mostly smaller fish.  DM didn't rush, so there was plenty of time just to
hover and watch if you saw something interesting. House reef right in front
of shop with easy entry.  I had my own gear, but rental equipment was
fairly new, with Sherwood BCs.  Rinse and storage facilities at shop
(hangers for wet gear and storage lockers; bring your own lock; area gated
and locked at night. I was the only one for a night dive.  This is the off
season, but other than a few showers, pretty good weather.  I'd go back and
use CSS again.  Didn't see any other boats on any trips except for Mushroom
Forest and the tugboat.  Other than the tugboat, all dives were north of
the Marriott (i.e., north of town), and didn't have the algae found at
tugboat.  Mix of European and US divers, no cruise ship divers.
