Wonderful trip.  We were the only Americans on Island.  People could not
have been nicer.   long trip.  +27 hours to get back to the States.  This
particular resort has fresh and diverse foods.  Never got boring.  Plenty
to choose from for the adventurous or stick to chicken and salad.   Spa at
resort was better than usual.  Accomodations were clean and the Jacuzzi
water villas were new and beautiful.  Overall dive experience was
fantastic.  Strong currents.  Not for the weak.   Barbara and Tom ran Pro
Divers.  We found them to be quite efficient and helpful.  they were
shorthanded at the time and took up the slack well.  We had different dive
masters from other resorts to fill in and all were knowledgeable and
friendly.
   Only negative - Barbara was into photography and when you dove with her
you were basically on your own.  She was into Macro and never looked up.   
Tom planned every dive to the last detail.  We looked forward to diving
with him.  Had two dive boats  One in German and one in English.   resort
is probably 60 English 40 German.  Barbara and Tom - German.  Definitely
would go back.  Well worth it.
