Luna Beach Resort offers magnificent accommodations at reasonable prices. 
A friend and I rented a two-story, three-bedroom, two-bath, two-balcony
house on the hillside overlooking the water. Beautiful mahogany floors, air
conditioning and a full kitchen. No TV, no telephone, no music system.  So
bring plenty of books or enjoy the quietude.

The dive operation was top notch, with excellent rental equipment, Nitrox
(blended perfectly) attentive and professional staff, great attitudes, a
large comfortable boat and helpful crews. This was perhaps the best diving
experience I've ever had because of the combination of great service, nice
people, small groups, great water conditions, and a commitment to make
every dive a memorable one.

The shortcomings of the experience were with the resort restaurant. 
Service was worse than bad, with orders getting mixed up, long waits for
even the simplest dishes or beverages, the need to re-request things three
or five times. And, the food is horrible. I'd recommend skipping the meal
plan option and instead buying groceries to be cooked at home or going out
to eat at any one of the many nearby restaurants.   Although the restaurant
staff were inefficient, they were, however, quite personable.

There is a beautiful beach, but it really can't be used because of the
insect problem on the shore and because of weeds in the water. Therefore,
do not bring a non-diver, unless he or she is perfectly content to be idle
most of the time. For insects, coat yourself with DEET at all times--not
just at the beach. Bring antimalarials too.

Overall, Luna Beach is a wonderful destination. Just avoid the restaurant
and prepare to do nothing but dive, dive, dive.
