Comments We were looking for an all-inclusive with something for our 4 and 6 year old. Their kids program was closed for winter, but they offered to find a sitter, who would take the kids to some daily activities while we dove. We never used this offer, since my wife chose not to dive this trip. It had rained for a month solid before we got there, but quit the day after we arrived. They had driven 20 minutes across the island to dive the other side during this time. It was beautiful during our 8 days, then rained for a week after we left. Good timing. The food was fine. The facility was fine. Staff was fine. They had put my wife's suitcase under the edge of the eaves when they delivered it to our cabin. It must have weighed 150 lbs. Her clothes were wet and muddy. They offered to launder them. The brothers who operate AKR showed some concern for our 4-year-old after he was kicked by one of the 2 adolescent deer the first time he ventured out of our cabin. We were surprised they didn't offer to at least reimburse for the x-rays (16.75US). It took them days to finally catch the deer with horses on the close island part of the resort that has many of the cabins. They told us there were no mosquitos before we came. This seemed true until the last two days, when they came out in droves. We had to plug the drain in our cabin, since they used it for entrance. Our cabin was fine in January without A/C. If we return, we will get an A/C cabin. It is a great dive resort.
