Comments Simply wonderful. From the time you arrived into the resort's care - you were treated like royalty. They try to take care of every need and want - all you have to do is ask. There is cell service there if you can handle the roaming charges. The food served buffet style is excellent (meals are included - drinks are not). If you plan to drink alcohol, they have an honor bar with reasonable prices but alittle limited. If you want something particular, get it at the duty free shop before you get there. The rooms are roomy for two, clean and simple with lots of hot water. One word of advise.. remember sun screen and Bugspray with DEET as the no see-ums are terrible but preventable...

It is definitely worth the pains of the travel to get there. The flight from Roatan is a small charter flight and people go first, luggage is sometimes left behind. And it is not a daily flight. My dive gear bag (along with others)did not arrive when I did. I was told it would not be sent for two days. Luckily for me - it had arrived, just picked up by another hotel and was found later that evening.

Diving - the coral looks healthy and varied, lots of small fish which is what I enjoy to photograph and green morays everywhere just wanting their picture taken. Definitely worth the trip....
