Comments The hotel was very comfortable, the food was very good, timely and plentiful. The rooms were nice and cleaned very well including cleaning up the sand we left around. The staff was about as helpful as you could hope. They eagerly carried our gear and luggage for us. When we shore dove they moved our gear to the shore from the boat and took it back when we finished.

The common area was really good with couches, computers and video players so we could share.

The boat and crew were excellent and very friendly. We felt like they were part of the gang! We were happy to see that they protected the reef and coached any divers where were not properly careful of the reef. The boat was comfortable and in good repair.

Although I've been places with more fish life but the overall experience was excellent.

The only real hard part were the sand fleas. We all got a zillion bites. Bring supplies for these.
