We brought a group of 15 vacationers to Anchorage Hotel and dive center.
The diving was outstanding. Paul, Sherman, and Richard were the best. We
saw turtles every day, sting rays, sea horses, octopi, and huge barrel
sponges. Water conditions were as calm as we have seen and the temperature
was comfortable.
The resort was nice; the food was excellent. We had an all-inclusive
package; however, our service was nothing to speak of. We did notice that
"paying" customers were treated differently. 
I would suggest checking into cruise ship schedules before planning a dive
vacation with this resort. Cruise ships take precedence and without
"power in numbers" your vacation may suffer.
Overall, Domminica is an excellent destination. The island is beautiful,
the people are friendly, the activities are reasonable, and diving was
exceptional.
