Comments This place never ceases to amaze me. Every trip is like going home again. The staff, from the GM to the maint. workers, go out of their way to insure everyone has the very best experience possible. The food, the bar, the dive staff, the boat crews, the rooms...I am comfortable stating that this place is one of the best resorts I have ever experienced. The divemasters will do whatever it takes to find exactly whatever critter you want, every time. I hate to sound like a broken record, but I really can't say enough good things about the Water Village.
