Comments Though the pontoon boat came up to shore to pick up and it was across the street and down the path, it was not very far and a quick hike. Food at hotel was average, nothing to get excited about. Many meals were arranged to go out. Only breakfast was included. Nice small pool. Rooms were old and large with mixed furniture; quite spacious and comfortable.
Dive operation a little disconnected in arranging for timely pick up and drop off. Schedule was not known enough before hand to make some reasonable plans for staying on the boat or getting off.
Had a great time overall.
