Re dive op:  They have a great system for getting your gear onto the boat
and a beautiful dive locker.  Excellent dive staff.  Boats are quite nice. 
They offer one (extra charge) dive to a magnificent site called Watamula
which offers FABULOUS coral and a pristine environment. However, like most
of the sites where their boats go, it had not as many fish as sites which
are in the Marine Reserve.  From the terrace of my room I could see a small
fishing boat nearly every day and it and its confreres probably take a lot
of tropicals as well as more common foodfish.

Re resort:  Rooms are fine and pleasant, though not luxurious. I was in a
room with a balcony overlooking the water.  There were always HUGE lizards
on the rocks in front of it, and I could attract nice birds by setting out
breakfast jellies from the dining room. Staff is really wonderful.  FOOD is
very, very good!
