Comments Cocoview Resort is a no frills dive resort which is more than adequate in all respects. The rooms are not fancy but comfortable, the food not gourmet but plentiful, the atmosphere laid back. It is clear that this is a resort for divers; the operation is well-oiled and consistent. There is plenty of opportunity for both boat and shore diving and one can spend the whole week without leaving the property. The dive operation was top-notch and Jesse, our divemaster, was enthusiastic in his briefings even though he's done them a thousand times before.

There have been many reports of stomach ailments among the visitors to this resort and before my trip I started a prescription of cipro as a precaution. My buddy and I had no problems but there were several at the resort that did during my time there, including some taking cipro. Another of the potential irritants, the notorious noseeums, were a non factor. I don't know if that's because we had a room over the water or if the Cactus Juice I used was effective or if they just weren't around when I was there.

The test of a resort in my mind is would I go back again. Yes I would, with no hesitation.
