Comments Had an awesome experience. I was certified last year in SoCal and had only 12 dives so this was a brand new experience for me. 18 dives in a week made me so much more comfortable. My partner has well over 250 dives and he was pleased as well with the whole dive set up and specific dive sites. Reefs/coral appeared to be in pristine condition with amazing numbers and colors of fish and sea life to keep us occupied. We could easily have logged 5 dives a day if we had wished.
Accomodations were average. This is an older property but everything was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a private home adjacent to the resort property and loved the privacy and oceanfront views it offered.
Food was all served buffet style with hearty breakfasts including made to order omelets. Lunch and dinner always included salad bar, lunch meats, and hot protein dishes, soups and vegetables. Lobster, shrimp and conch were on the menu.
Full bar was very reasonable with great Argentinian wines. We'd go back in a flash. We took a shark dive through a separate operator and saw about 20 black-tipped reef sharks being fed at 70 feet near the edge of the ocean shelf. Fantastic!
