Comments Nice resort, we rented the beach house for the 6 of us. Had a dive boat to ourselves most of the time. Same divemaster and capt all week. Nice boat, exemplary service aboard. We would leave after bkfst and have about 30-45 min ride to a dive site. after the dive we'd have snack, dive again, then eat lunch onboard, dive again, the back to resort by about 2pm. the diving in belize is marvelous! we enjoyed each and every dive. I used nitrox on every dive. dive master was excellent. most dives were moored and all were guided by dm. Also dove the Blue Hole... that was so cool.

The resort is nice, nothing fancy. has a pool to lounge around. it's a long crowded boat ride from the mainland thru some rough ocean. Our only complaint is that dinner is not served until 7pm and we are not late eaters. The food was excellent tho.
