Comments The Good: The resort itself was wonderful. The staff was outstanding and truly cared about its guest. The rooms were clean and very comfy, with plenty of hot water and a spotless kitchen. The food was very good and plentfull. The staff was great, expecially the dive staff. Wonderful place to go to just relax.

The not so Good: The diving was very disappointing. The coral were bleached and just fair, the lack of fish were frightening. No large fish or sharks the entire week. A few groupers but over all very disappointing.
