This is a fabulous resort but the diving is mediocre. I've visited Belize 4
times and the Bay Islands twice before. This is, by far, one of the nicest
and most smoothly run resorts. The food was outstanding and the service was
truly wonderful. It's a GREAT place for kids and non-divers.  There's
horseback riding and a Dolphin enclosure, kayaks, water-trampoline and
great snorkeling lagoons.  The place runs like a clock.

On the other hand, the diving was not the greatest. The divemaster was
"over-it" and limited all dives to 40 minutes, despite the fact
that everyone on our boat was an experienced diver. This seemed to be the
rule on other boats as well. The boats return to the dock after every dive,
so they tend to stick close to the Resort and have to be pressured to go to
less-visited sites. The dive operation is regimented and perfunctory.

The corals are in good shape but it's REALLY barren when it comes to fish
and critter life.  We saw one small Southern Stingray over a 7 day period.
No Eagle Rays, no nurse sharks, no Nudibranches, no schools of jacks, no
Drums.  I'm used to finding tons of small, interesting critters in the
cracks but didn't find much of anything on our dives.  We did see two
Hawksbill turtles but that's about it for larger sea life.
