My family went to St Maarten / Dutch side for spring break with the kids,9
and 12 years old. My son did his open water referral dives for his open
water certification. The dive conditions were perfect for that. The first 2
shore dives were perfect for the beginning diver. Good water visability,
little current and a sunken helicopter and submarine in 25-30 ft of
water.The boat dives were good although the water a little rough. Eagle
rays were seen on almost every dive. Irene was the divemaster who completed
my son's training and she was very good with children and thorough. She was
doing open water certification for 3 teenagers while we were there. The
people that worked for the dive operation had great attitudes and were very
pleasant. The attitudes and helpfulness of the resort personnel was not
always as good. Some were excellent. Others would watch guests struggle
with things such as luggage and not offer or lift a finger to help. Also 
you you have the option to have your room stocked with groceries when you
arrive. This task was not carried out by the third day we were there and I
cancelled the order. The accomodations  were very suitable and all rooms
had water views.
