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

The boat and crew were excellent and very friendly. We felt like they were
