Expert handling by boat crew. Dedicated camera rinse. Lots of space for
cameras on board. After diving, divers brought cameras to their own rooms,
which had ample charging outlets.

Reef House picked up and returned guests to the airport as part of the
cost. Rooms could use some redecorating but were comfortable and well
airconditioned even in August. 
All the staff were very friendly and very competent.
Meals were served individually (no buffet) but portions were very ample. 
Individual taste was promptly accommodated.  Co-owner Mike Park also owns
restaurants in Georgia, and the quality of food surely reflected his
experience.  He even quickly purchased snacks beyond his usual supply to
please some guests' requests.  Friday night dinner was steak and 2--or
more, if you wished--lobster tails.  With flights on Saturday the usual
pattern, the sendoff was impressive and memorable.
The reefs were often short trips away, and the Wednesday night dive on the
house reef (by boat) was very satisfying.  Nearly all dives were on walls,
even the closest ones.
Having done others, I skipped the $100 shark dive trip to another facility,
but those who went were quite pleased.
The 3-tank "wall dive" trip down the coast was well worth it at
$45.  The reefs there were as virgin as some of the best in the Caribbean.
Divemaster David, who had a great sense of humor, was great at organizing
and spotting critters.  Choco, boat captain and camera and gear handler,
was very experienced and attentive.
With just two flights on Delta needed from O'Hare, the arrangements were
very easy. Continental also flies non-stop from Houston and American
requires more stops and/or plane changes. 
Overall, this dive trip may be the best value in my 25 years of diving--as
well as a very enjoyable experience.
