Comments Had a great week! Staff for shore and dive operation were outstanding! Had 6 divers to a boat set-up for 20. Frederick was a great boat captain, made getting in and out of the water easy. Dive masters Jerome and Danielle were great! Would spend as much time as you wanted to show you things, or would let you dive your own dive. Blue Hole was fabulous except for the number of boats coming to dive this site. The rest of the week we never saw another dive boat at any sites! The resort is primarily a fishing resort, but they have integrated the dive operation into it with ease. We never went wanting for anything. The resort itself was great, the rooms we had were brand new. The kitchen staff were outstanding, even giving Belezean cooking classes to those who wanted. Kani and Justin were wonderful and took care of all our needs. We've dove in a lot of different places, and this certainly is one of the best! We are already booking again for next year!
