Comments TIR is a first class resort from the time we cleared customs till our departure we were taken care of. The transition to the resort was smooth ,cool peppermint towels and plenty of rum punch for the ride out. Food was good not much choice as the menu is set. Rooms were very nice and had good a/c and plenty of hot water. If there was an issue staff took care of it quickly. George the bartender was the best always had a smile and was willing to help. Drinks were a little pricy but this is an island right. The diving was drift and done from small boats which we were not crazy about because it was windy and rough every day. You can't help what mother nature dishes out. Trip to Blue Hole was rough but worth the ride as this was the best diving of the week. The dive staff took care of your equipment and cleaned it after the week of diving.
