The Good:  Located at the East end of the island, far from the crowds of
West End (never saw another divegroup the whole week), usually small groups
5-8 on boats,good fills and assistance as needed. Fantastic DM was able to
spot a lot of unusual critters for us. He and the boat captain went out of
their way to provide a good dive experience.

Reef is in very good shape (beautiful untrampeled fans galore, abundant
black coral, largest scrawled filefish and porcupine fish I've seen).

Rooms were clean and comfortable, excellent maid service, management was
accomodating.

The Not So Good:  Weather was cold and rainy part of the trip, wouldn't go
again in January! Viz would probably be better in spring/summer too. The
couple with us had been there the year before at the same time and
experienced rainy conditions the entire week.

Oak Ridge residents have GOT to do something about all the trash in the
water, it was a real turn-off. House reef entry was a little tricky to
negotiate past the urchins etc but saw a lot of fish and octopus on night
dive. Meals were just ok, not very filling altho the servers were
attentive. Just before we departed we had crab and it was very good. (We
were all glad we'd brought "snacks" from home.) Several of us
lost weight this trip!

Do the mangrove tour with one of the local long boat owners, it was
entertaining and informative. This is a good resort for the non-partying
type diver, very quiet, secluded and security was good.
