From the time that we stepped off of the plane, the service was awesome! 
Papa and Marie meet us at the airport for the transfer to the hotel.  They
were such a pleasure to talk to and to ask questions about the area.  Very
warm and caring people!  Papa is available to shuttle you into town during
the week.

When we got to the hotel, Jim Hunter met us at the front desk.  He made
certain that all of our needs were met.  He even upgraded our two rooms to
a two story suite, since we had our 3 teenage boys with us.  It made it
more convient and it was much nicer.  The rooms have awesome views of the
sunsetting over the ocean with a nice balcony to sit out on.  The rooms and
bathrooms are kept very clean and well stocked.  The rooms could use some
revamping, but are clean and the beds are comfortable.

The food was the best that we have had at an all inclusive resort.  If they
did not have something you are craving, they would try to get it for you. 
You have to try the coconut cake.  I think I gained 5 lbs. from that

Choo Choo was there to keep our teenagers occupied in the evening and
during the day at the pool.  Since the boys were of drinking age (18) he
kept the drinks flowing and they had a great time.  Other than the night
time music and games that he provided, there was not much else for them to
do other than diving.

Now to the diving.  The dive operation was very well organized and ran very
well.  The dive masters were great at finding little creatures and gave you
the attention that you wanted or did not want.  Our boys were new divers,
but myself and husband were advanced. The dives still were great for all of
us.  The boys were able to get back on the boat while we finished our
dives.  The house reef was almost as nice as the other dives. We saw manta
shrimp, frog fish, many spotted drums, different types of eels, fire worms,
eagle reys, octopus, seahorses, as well as the usual tropical fish.  We
made a great friend out of one of the dive masters and enjoyed her

The best part of the resort were the people.  The one thing that made the
biggest impact on us was Jim Hunter and the GREAT favor that he did for
myself. I made the worst mistake and flooded my underwater camera.  He was
able to get an employee to rent me her camera and it saved the entire trip
for me.  My husband also was grateful, because he did not have to deal with
a depressed wife all week.  I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH HIS EFFORTS!  Jim
also got our son a birthday cake for while we were there.  You can't ask
for better people or service.
