Well-machined airport pickup--they'll fairly ask for tips for baggage
handlers.
AKR toted luggage from airport carasoul and depositied in bungalows.Great
reception briefing and bungalow assignments with cold drink.
Use of AKR launch to and from Key is no problem.
Bring strong DEET--those without sufferred sand flea bites. Moderate number
tropical mosquitos.
Refrigerator, ceiling fans, A/C & hair dryers in superior rooms. No
in-room coffee makers, but its available all day at bar.Can't say it tastes
good. Bungalows have large covered decks with chairs and hammocks.Daily
bungalow cleaning about what one expects. 
Three solid (don't expect gourmet) meals per day with decent choices. AKR
has own pastry chef with tasty products! 98% of wait and bar staff very
friendly. Several "happy hours" per week. A fun
"fiesta" night with entertainment on Key. 
Kevin runs a extremely well-organized and safe dive operation! Divers
assigned same captain & dive master all week and get to know fellow
divers well. Very safety conscious with NITROX and invariably mixed to
32%.Comfortable, clean, and fast 42-foot boats with easy ingress.[Never
told if head available-think for "crew" only]. Return to AKR
after each dive for surface interval. Dive sites near by. Helpful boat
captains help alot and BCDs are changed to new tanks unless you prefer
otherwise. If strong NW winds, divers are bussed to island's leeward side
where boats await for calmer dive sites. 
Mostly knowledgeable, safety conscious, friendly dive masters who are very
good at briefings and pointing out interesting sea life.
Lots of tutles, sponges, grouper, lobster, crabs,a few large Moray eels,
small fish, okay coral, and neat swim-throughs. Two wrecks are a fun must.
Other activities, dolphin interaction, etc. available plus snorkling.
Cruise ship divers kept entirely separate from in-house guests with
different boats and dive sites. 
AKR is a great value for the money, particluarly for folks wanting to log
alot of dives!
