Comments this small nice simple resort is new and right in the midst of the BEST diving in Belize. About 12 rooms and also many dorm style rooms for researchers who visit the area. Another small B&B on the island runs the dive operation which also serves the tent camp on neighboring Half Moon Caye which occassionally has a few divers. Good boat, great captain and varied divemasters good at finding things. Being 2-10 minutes from the best diving in Belize is great. Hope Itza gets their own boat and dive operation going, would be a bit more coordinated, but perfectly fine as is.
Good food and variety. They also offer snorkeling, fishing, shelling, kayaks, etc. on this fun island. Simple big rooms, fans, great breezes, hot water, all you need. Large dining room, ping pong, rinse area, lounge chairs in sun or shade, small adequate beach you can swim off of without beach grass in the way.
Since the best diving is so close (10 minutes to Blue Hole), this is our #1 place to go now in Belize.
