Comments Fantasy Island is undergoing a renovation. We were looking for a bargain vacation and the cost for an all inclusive eight day/seven night stay with 3 boat dives a day was $700. The rooms were very clean, but the sheets on our king size beds never stayed in and we wound up sleeping on the mattress. The food was plentiful and good. The dive shop emphsized tipping in the briefing, but did little to earn it. You haul your own gear, set it up and take it off the boat. Michael, the DM seemed very uninterested in showing us anything. We found stuff on our own and our group shared things with each other. There were only six people on our boat, so it could have been a little more adventerous than it was. The reefs are spectacular, but there is a sameness in all of them. Mary's Place, a must do dive, has some great swim throughs. The dive shop has good facilities for cleaning up and hot showers to warm up after the dive. All in all, for a week at Christmas time, I think it was a pretty good deal.
