Glenroy Adams does an excellent job of making you feel comfortable both
above and below the water.  Boats were not traditional dive boats, which
required backward roll entries.  Every effort was made to provide a good
experience.  Locations were selected based on conditions and request of
divers.  Due to our experience, we were often provided with our own boat
and guide, usually Glenroy.  Corals and marine life very healthy.  We were
picked up daily at the dock at Palm Island Beach Resort, (we were the only
divers there).  Sometimes other divers were picked up from their yachts and
sailboats.  Due to weight restrictions on the interisland airway, we used
rental gear, which was in excellent condition.  To get to Palm Island, you
fly to Barbados and then a private charter takes you to Union Island, where
you transfer via a 10 minute boat ride to Palm Island.  Accomodations are
in bungalows.  It is a small, intimate resort that encompasses the entire
island. Palm Island is inclusive of all meals, drinks, and many activities.
 The grounds are lush and planted with many palm trees.  The freshwater
pool has a waterfall and comfortable seating.  Three meals per day are
served, along with afternoon tea.  The quality and variety of food is very
high.  Our only issue is that they claim the bungalows are air conditioned,
but the units were small and the rooms tended toward the warm side. 
Ceiling fans were also present.  Staff is friendly, polite and helpful. 
This is the way the Caribbean used to be.  Overall we enjoyed it so much,
we are returning this year.
