Think "wood". The Inn of Last Resort is a testament to local
ingenuity. Everything, including the boats are hand made of wood. The boats
and the accommodations are ineligant but functional. Take the boats. They
are big wooden boats that go slow in comparison to Anthony's Key's boats
which are new and was seldom more than 15 miniutes to a
site and the boats were big and uncrowded compared to the newer faster
boats. Three dives a day are routine. The routine is eat, sleep and dive,
[7AM Eat, 8AM Dive, 10AM quick nap, 10:30AM dive, noon: eat 1:00PM nap
2:30PM dive 3:30 dive 5Pm bar and rap 7PM dinner 8PM crash....repeat.]

The rooms are excellent, large and air-conditions, and the beds were
comfortable. The food is home cooking. It isn't elegant but it's good. the
ersort caters to large, non-diving groups. They are typically there 2
nights maximum in a week. Otherwise the resort is very uncrowded and the
boats are never crowded.

ILR is closer to the West End than the better known resorts. The ride is
shorter in most cases but the sites are the same. You dive the typical
sites from West End to Spooky Channel. There are a couple of nice wrecks,
some nice walls and lots of interesting flats for that third shallow dive.
Nitroz is available. Generally Roatan diving is midway between Cozumel and
Bonaire. The reefs do not have the the towering formations found in
Palancar on Cozumel but are more varied with deep channels and swimthroughs
than Bonaire. My opinion was that there was more small stuff on Bonaire but
more big stuff on Roatan.

Shore diving in the lagoon or Fish Den is nice. Squeezing a 4th dive in at
Fish Den is trivial. Swim out or have the boat drop you off.....but you'll
miss your nap.

If you are going to Roatan to dive this is the place. If you are looking
for nightlife pay more and go to AKR.
