We went as a small group to Fantasy Island because of the good value (dive
package, all inclusive food). The airport transfer went fairly well (for
those of us that didn't have lost luggage). Our room was one of the
remodelled ones, so its fairly spacious. Meals were adequate buffet food.

The dive operation is probably only good for beginners. They put 15-18
divers per boat, with one divemaster. Our divemaster only pointed out a few
critters; I heard other divermasters were better (they have 5 boats). But
either way, that's a lot of people to be in a dive together. We typically
went away from the group on our own, to have less crowding, visibility
issues, etc.  

The boat goes back to the marina after each dive so they can swap tanks
(and have a bio-break). Thus, they don't go very far from the resort, not
the typical longer distance out on the first dive, and have a 2nd dive on
the way back. Thus, although the diving is pretty good, its very
repetitive. They did provide water and good fruit on every dive.

Corals are pretty good, good wall diving. In summary, however, I would not
recommend this dive operation.
