Comments [None]My wife and I stayed at the resort on Memorial Day weekend as a package deal.- Two-two tank boat trips plus a one tank night dive.They have two boats, one is a pretty nice six pack set -up for premium tours. The other boat is a 30 plus foot 34 seat catamaran.They filled every seat on the catamaran on all trips but the night dive.Can you say cattle boat ? For crew, there was a captain and only one divemaster on board - If you were to need two-person CPR, who's going to captain the boat?. On one "deep" (100 FT. ), somebody had a "situation" and the lone divemaster spent several minutes getting suited up.Not a lot of safety planning here.I'll cut to the chase: the service was indifferent from the front office all the way to the dive ladder.The room was dirty,plain and simple - great CATV though. The continental breakfast was bagged bagels,a toaster, and community peanut butter.By the way, Cremora for the coffee just doesn't cut it.We've been to Key Largo many times, and if I'd known that this facility was like this, I would have booked my stay up the street at an old favorite and dived with a professional operator there who uses only 6-packs.
