The resort is quite nice.  Well maintained, pleasant staff, good
restaurant.    But the dive operation was iffy -- it looked like the
operation was new.  (Yeah, that doesn't make sense.)  The diver setup area
(rinse tanks, showers etc) was partly under construction.  And the
dive-boat operations were nervous-making. In particular, tanks were loosely
piled up on the deck and made it scary to walk around, especially
suited-up.   In the water, the typical location was nearby, with shallows
at 20', a slope to 50-90' then a drop off. A dive usually drifted along the
slope at about 60-80', and the terrain there was oft "bombed out"
-- sand covered -- possibly due to the earthquake shortly before our
arrival.  The shallows were prettier than the deeper slope, with much
better corals, but that wasn't the dive profile on-offer.  Visits to
Pescador Island were better than the local slopes.  No large fish. 
Critters were good: froggies, OGPs, nudis, a "feeder mouth sea
cucumber".
