Good - Boats (9) are all in excellent condition with heads on all, separate
camera rinse, water for drinking.  Short boat ride to dive sites (They
return to the dock after dives to refill the same tank you just used)unless
the site is on the south side, but some of the best sites are on the south
side.  There was some slight current on only a few dives.  You do a
checkout dive, flood and clear mask and retreive regulator off the boat
while at the dock.  Free bouancy control lessons are offered daily. 
Swimming with sharks and dolphins are offered for a price.  The dolphin
show, horse back riding, bicycles are all free. Since the ocean was
extremely rough on the North side we were transported by bus to the South
side for diving and unfortunately missed three afternoon dives and two
night dives (They include 3 dives a day, plus two night dives in the
standard package).  The storm also stopped all shore diving because it to
is on the North side.  The rooms (Cabanas) are well arranged, but only have
the necessities, bed and bathroom with shower, but what else do you really
need?  There are some with A/C, but we chose one without.  We feel it is
too dehydrating and the breeze is always there.  Maybe not in the Summer
months though.  They take you and your bags follow by boat to the island, a
30 second ride in an open sciff. Take an umbrella or waterproof jacket, we
had disposable plastic panchos and everyone asked us where they could
obtain one.  We bought them at home for a dollar. The night life at the bar
was great, although it would be nice to bring them a cd or two as they have
a limited selection.  The large screen TV does not always get good
reception. The water is safe to drink.  There is not much to go to town
for, but a cab will take you there and they are always available at the
Bad - Unfortunately the week we chose was a rainy week and the airport was
shutdown for a couple days when our trip ended.  We ended up staying 9
nights instead of 7.   Small planes can get in and out, but the large jets
cannot.  Anthony's Key Resort was fantastic in accomodating our extra
nights and days.  There was no charge for the extra days and this was all
inclusive.  Other resorts did charge for the extra days. We (My wife) got
about 20 bites from no-see-ums, but I only got a few.  I used the Cactus
Juice.  We had no mosquito bites. We opted not to take malaria prevention.
