My and I are new to diving, in our early 'midddle age" and were
looking for a good place to get some much needed expirence.  Amy's provided
that and much more.  I had been certified only weeks before, and my wife
was doing her final dives at the resort.  Her instructor was Steve, and he
was fantastic with her.  She had some issues with decending too fast, and
this guy was marvelous with her. We dove a total of 15 dives in 4 days.
The resort is basic but very clean and well organized.  Check in was easy
and the boat(a large pontoon boat) was 50 feet from our room.
There are several restaurents with in 3 miles of the resort so eating
wasn't a problem.  The best food as right next door (HOBO's)  walking
distance. We had a small fridge in our room for water and juice.  The only
weak part of the resort was the breakfast served next to the departure
We hooked up all our own equpipment, with enough room for moving around on
the boat.  Although some days there were as many as 20 people on board, I
never felt croweded.
The diving was easy, and the reefs were in what we thought were ok
condition (we didn't have much to compare it to) The only way to go deeper
is to bring your own shovel. Max depth during the 4 days was 42 feet. Did
the Benwood wreck several time and loved it. Many fish, not many soft
coral, but tons of hard coral. No surge or currents to deal with. Generally
easy no brainer diving.... great for relativly new divers.  Wife got certed
and we had a great time.  We are thinking about going back just to get some
bottom time. Well worth the money!
