Comments GOOD: Easy destination to get to/Sunbreeze Resort very close to airport on Ambergris Caye/walking distance. Room was large/clean/had small refrigerator/staff very helpful and efficient. Sunbreeze close to all stores, including small grocery. Restaurant with resort OK/food OK.
DIVING: Nitrox available, additional cost/tanks appeared old/however; nitrox fills about 32%.
Boat personnel very helpful and friendly. Dive operation has several boats, the one we were on was larger/good ladder. They kept gear/cleaned/had gear set up next morning for dives.
DIVING: Dive operation took us to only close sites. Most had rather poor visibility. Water was warm ( 82-84F). Reefs around that area are showing obvious deterioration of too much use. Both fauna and flora are minimal. We did see many nurse sharks.
Requested we be taken on additional day trip to Turnef Caye, but dive op would not as they needed a dozen people for the trip. Dive op did attempt to find another dive op to take us there, without success.
Nice people that run resort and dive op. However; as a dive destination, we would not return.
