Fantasy Island physically is a wonderful layout but is lacking maintenance
and money to keep it first class. Beds were poor, slept on the floor for
part of the week and food plentiful but below average. Best part was the
ice cream. We had our own designated boat and oustanding captain Pedro and
divemaster Derry. He identified more than 15 seahorses, the most I have
ever seen in one week of diving. Massive coral damage from island runoff
contrasted by wonderful reef when not in the path of death and
destruction.We saw a dearth of any large fish. We discussed this and will
see if the better enforcement of the park rules restores the fish. The
absence of fish was in stark contrast to my experience on  the other side
of the island with vibrant fish life admittedly 12 years ago. A cheap trip
which got my nitogen levels back to near normal but as another reader
stated there were reasons for it being so inexpensive.
