Comments Great dive operation and excellent service. No head on the boats and limited shade, but we had a great time diving with them. Lots of interesting coral and reef fish, including seahorses - great place to take your time and look for the small stuff, but nothing bigger than a tarpon. We always had to pull out the creature reference book back on shore. Saw virtually every type of eel in the Caribbean. The sites did start to look alike by the end of the week, though. Very easy access to gear and tanks 24 hours a day and the staff were always friendly and helpful. We thought that we would do more shore diving, like Bonaire, but other than a nice site off the resort, we were too lazy. The sites are far from the road and didn't "call to us" like they did in Bonaire. Be sure to do a night dive.

Resort nice enough, staff eager to please. Food okay, never bad, never fantastic, always plenty. A good 45 minutes from Willemstad and very few food options near the resort, so the all inclusive is your best bet.
