As you've heard before, bring lots of bug spray.  The owners of the resort
are Americans and really great.  The dive operation is a bit sluggish in
service and enthusiasm; the dive staff did not help much with gear (in and
out of the water), nor did they really search for or show us anything we
couldn't have found ourselves. They do load the gear on to and off of the
boat.  The accommodations are fine; the water is safe as the resort has its
own wells.  However, several people became sick from perhaps the mayo (?). 
The menu  becomes boring as the week progresses, with few different items
added from day to day.  They put on a nice pig roast with live music on
Thursday evenings. It's cheap, quick & easy to get to either Coxen Hole
or to the West End (unlike staying at Fantasy or CocoView).  You can shore
dive but it's a long haul out to Spooky Channel (a really beautiful dive
site because of its formations).  For advanced divers, you may find the
diving is just average.
