My wife and I stayed at the Reef House Resort from 1/26/08 to 2/2/08.
Overall impression was very good. The resort is small, 12 rooms, with rooms
S1 and S2 the largest with a common private porch. Meals were very good,
served at a common table which encouraged socializing. Never went hungry,
although suggest you bring snacks for the afternoon munchies. Bar was
operated on the honor system; record your drinks on a 3x5 card and settle
up at the end of the week. Good selection of local beer, but also offered
wine, liqour and soft drinks. No see ums were minimal, but bring insect
spray. Resort provided transportation to and from the airport.

The resort is located toward the east end away from the west end tourist
area, so isolated dive sites in very good condition. Dive operation was
good. Gear was keep in a store room next to the boats with individual
storage bins and hangers for wet suits & BCs. Boats left a 9:00a (2
tanks) and 3:00p (1 tank). This was reversed on one day when the wind
increased, so still was able to get 3 dives in. Most sites are shallow at
entry in open sandy areas with a short swim to the wall. Only issues was
the DM would enter the water last which resulted in waiting in the shallow
are for 5 - 9 minutes. 

Overall very enjoyable week of diving - do plan to return.
