The resort is located on the beach, there are sailing boats and kayaks you
can use, I don't know if there is a additional charge for them but they are
in very good shape.  We had a room with a kitchenette not all rooms have
them but I did notice a small refrigerator in the other rooms. Not all
rooms are oceanfront so if you want that you have to request one.  The
buildings all are in very good condition and the staff looks after them
very well. While we were there my wife and I had dinner all over the
island, I guarantee you will not find better food anywhere! executive chef
Zev Beck will thrill you with his creations, I can honestly say I have not
had better food anywhere in the world.  You have to pay for your food, as
far as I know the resort is not all inclusive and that's not a big deal,
the pricing at the restaurant is the same as any other place on the island.
 One thing we thought was neat is you just might find one of the staff
members going on a dive with you, I found that the executive chef loves
diving as much as he loves to cook.  Kelly and Nick are always there and
make sure you don't need anything.  Now for the reason we went, the diving.
 My wife and I dove with four different dive masters; Sage, Craig, Kel and
Sunny.  All four dive masters went to great lengths to make your experience
a pleasant one. All predive briefings were very well done and all of the
dive masters followed the profile discussed on the boat.  I like to think
of them as underwater herding dogs, when there was a diver wandering off
(and there was every dive) they would simply signal us to continue while
he\she went to get the lone diver, they never said a word to the people on
the boat after the dive they just wanted to know if everybody had a good
time.  All you have to do is bring your gear to the dive shop the first day
and they take care of it the rest of your stay, you don't have to touch it
until you leave.  The only bad thing I can think of during our whole stay
was walking past the selenias.....THEY STINK! but I didn't smell anything
at the resort. We strongly suggest walking into town,the only cranky people
you will find on the island are the tourist, we didn't see a Belonger with
a frown the whole time we were there.  When it was time for us to leave I
was presented a itemized bill that Kelly and I went over in detail, there
were no surprises and she made leaving a pleasant experience (she gave us a
hug!).  I would recommend this facility to anybody and we will return
