Great area for pics.  Diving is pretty calm so you can concentrate on your
photos if you need to.  Night dive was awesome for life.

Hotel is great.  Location could not be better.  You can even arrange shore
diving with Dive Experience.  Beach is fantastic.  I love this hotel
because if you're bringing the family, it has a great beach (and pool) and
is right near town so lots to offer everyone in your group.  It also has
awesome lounge chairs just to kick back and have a drink with an umbrella! 
Restaurant on the property is very good for breakfast and lunch. Knowing I
was a diver, the hotel was very accomodating to give me a room that had a
balcony toward the back of the hotel where I could dry my gear and no one
could see or get to it!  I really appreciated that. This hotel feels more
like home to us.  We've stayed here twice and have already booked Nov 2005
as well. Diving is great.  This is actually where we got hooked on the
sport.  Dive Experience is a great operation and I would recommend them for
any type of certification you need.  You can also do the resort dive at
Hotel on the Cay. Diving here is great with lots of sites within a short
boat ride.  Crews were great to dive with.  Night dive was well worth it
and if you've never done one, this is a great area to try it.  Our dive
groups were very small which I love. I can't wait to go back in November!
