Great staff, great food.  Arlee, the chef. and Roy, assistant chef, made
huge effort to create a varied and healthy menu and should be commended on
their success.
One of our very experienced divers wanted to use a smaller tank (she came
up with 1800+ psi EACH dive), but DM (Eddie) was reluctant to accommodate.

Diving was varied, visibility was either good, or poor, depending on the
dive site.  Dive staff could have given a bit more dive site info, and
pointed out more of the interesting critters,  but might have been fairly
busy as they preferred we dove as a large group (14 divers), versus
allowing us to dive our own profiles and dive at our own speed.
Reef hooks, available at Fish and Fins were available for purchase and are
well designed and critical. 
Wet Suit stowage/drying on the boat was a bit cramped.  Suggest bringing
own rail clamps for drying various gear.
Charito, at Fish N Fins, was extremely helpful with questions, as well as
Colleen, at Reef and Rainforest, was great!
