The diving itself was very good.  The working staff at the resort were
always plesant and helpful, however the management had an indifferent
attitude and it showed in the quality of the operation.
Nearly everyone(including some staff that ate at the resort) at the resort
got some sort of intestinal sickness either due to bad water or poor food
prep.  The manager's attitude was "it must be that cruise ship
thing", and walked off.  We had bad air on several days, bad enough to
make people sick and cause dives to be cancelled. The excuse: " a
filter problem with the compressor, it won't hurt you". Most likely
lack of compressor maintenance. On two occasions the boat wouldn't start
(at the dock luckily).  When they ran, the boats were good.  Divemasters
and boat crews went out of their way to make up for management
indifference. The manager was always easy to find, look in the bar.
The shore diving is very good and gives some extra value to the trip. Macro
life was very good as was smaller and intermediate sized fish. We saw a
number of Eagle Rays. No see-ums were a very minor problem for us, although
some people were seemed to have more of a problem. Take DEET and some sort
of anti itch medication. 
Overall we had a good time, but it could have been so much better.  We will
not return and while we would recommend Roatan we would stay away from Coco
View Resort.
