My wife and I stayed at the Reef House Resort for a week and overall we
enjoyed our stay. The resort is rustic and it is mainly geared toward
divers. Situated on a small cay off the town of Oak Ridge, the Reef House
Resort does not offer much to do but dive. Larry, his wife, his daughter
and his son in law are great hosts and did everything they could to make
our trip memorable. The menus are geared towards American patrons and for
good reason.

The dive operation is very good even though the boats could use some
upgrading. One of the boats was pretty old and the exhaust fumes made a few
people sea sick during our stay (me included). The trade winds were blowing
all week at a pretty steady pace. This, while keeping the bugs at bay,
affected considerably our diving experience. Because of the trade winds,
the seas were rough most of the time and on a few occasions dives were
either delayed, shortened, or cancelled (such as the sole night dive and
the trip to Mary's Place). On the last couple of days the dive boats kept
going back to the closest dive sites due to the rough seas. My wife and I
could do only one shore dive during the entire week.

The divemasters could use a little more discretion when grouping people.
Absolute beginners who would run out of air very quickly almost daily were
put together with experienced divers thus shortening the dives for
everyone. The dive sites are great. Mostly wall dives. I enjoyed the fact
that we didn't see another dive boat during the entire week. Not much fish
life going on due to overfishing by the villagers but great variety of
critters. All in all, my wife and I will probably go back during a
different time of the year when the trade winds are not blowing

My overall impression is that this is a great place for beginner and
intermediate divers; not so much for advanced divers. Minuses aside, the
Reef House Resort is a great value for the money and the hosts are
