The physical layout of the underwater terrain was unbelievable with
gigantic ravines and phenomenal coral heads, some stretching for 1000's of
yards....With the right camera gear and the right lighting conditions, it
would be a religious expirence.

The resort is beautiful, we expected something very rustic but were
pleasantly surprised.  It sits on a hill right at the water's edge.  All
the buildings are made out of wood and are eco friendly, blending in with
the scenery.  Most of the private bungalows are located on the Key and can
be reached 24 hours a day by a water taxi.  Most of the bungalows have air
conditioning and a deck where you can relax in a hammock or lounge chair. 
The rooms are large and well appointed.  I loved the beds.  The grounds are
shaded by palms trees and kept clean.  A new pool was added in May.  It has
a bar, lots of lounge chairs, beach towels are available and on each side
it has a wonderful shaded area where one can lounge or read on soft
pillows.  Once a week they host a Fiesta Night with live music, crab races
and a barbecue and also a lunch.  Canoes, Kayaks are available from the
key.  You can also go horseback riding for free.
The lobby can be accessed by climbing 35 several steps.  The staff is
friendly, efficient and courteous.  Next to the lobby is a seating area. 
The Internet is available, for $10 you get a private code and 2 hours of
use, they have 4 computers and I never had to wait.The dining room is
fairly large with a large deck that overlook the ocean.  When it rains
plastic curtains can be pulled down and do not compromise the view.  The
food is not gourmet but plentiful.  The beef is excellent but the desserts
always the same.  We were pleasantly surprised and would not hesitate to
come back.  I was really apprehensive about the bugs but it was not too bad
as long as you had Deet on hand. The diving operation was outstanding, and
very accomadationg.
