Comments No need to bring anything other than flip flops, you'll be walking on sand for your whole stay. The appeal of the resort is it's remoteness and smallness. 30 guests is max out. Each couple has an individual bungalow with it's own screened in porch and bathroom. The bungalows are spread out along the beach so every one has a view and beach.Some are a bit tired in terms of decor but the bed was comfortable and the shower had hot water. All meals are served in a central dining hall. The food was always exceptionally good and beautifully presented. There was a separate building with a deck over the water that was the bar. There is a nice pool and lots of kayaks available to guests. Most of the diving was very close to the resort. The vis was variable but generally quite clear. There was always something interesting to watch. The highlight was definitely the long day trip to dive the Bluehole, Long Caye and Half Moon Caye. Giant groupers and the clearest water ever. With perfect weather, too, it was a magical day.
