Comments the resort and dive operator are both top notch and extremely service oriented.Mike and Michelle recently took over the dive operation, they have one large boat and one smaller faster boat. Teh large boat can acccomodate 20 the smaller one 8. They try not to put more than 18 on the larger boat and there is plenty of room,and sundeck available. They totally spoil you, setting up your gear from your first dive to your last, switching over the gear between the two boat dives and rinsing it out at the days end. You don't touch your gear from arriving till you leave. They try to make the surface interval fun by offering options such as snorkeling in a cave, feeding iguanas, etc,. Sunbathing is of course always an option, while enjoying the fresh fruit snacks they provide. You are free to dive your own profile, and to go with a buddy, or to follow their guide. Only rule is to come up with 500 PSI , and even that rule is not strictly enforced. They treat you like an adult.

The manager of the resort Jim Hunter was on top of everything and quite accomodating to ensure every guest is pleased.While the resort is far from town about a thirty to forty minute ride, jsut tell Jim when you want to go into town and he arranges a free service to get you there. The resort has a beautiful beach and the ocean front rooms have totally unobstructed beautiful ocean vistas, and balconies,with great sunset views. The oceanfront junior suite are quite large and offer large balconies.The all inclusive rate is hard to beat- three excellant meals a day, always several choices of entrees plus a fresh salad bar at lunch and dinner. The all inclusive rate also includes all alcohol. The service and staff of both the resort, and the dive operation is impeccable with the staff anxious to please.
