Comments This is a repeat trip for us. Easy convenient lazy diving. Refer to prior reviews for general info about the resort - the following speaks to changes.

news:
divi is being rennovated. they are overhauling the south pool to add a swim up bar. they are also installing new interlocking brick path across the resort (why?). the grass area in front of the casino has been replaced with a very large sand kitty litter box. all trees were removed, umbrellas are being installed.

my impression is that all obvious work is aimed at serving cruise ship passengers. I could be wrong. bonus was that cruise shippers were diverted to the plazza during construction...

good news:
(i claim) some work has been done on the tanks. our last trip 8 months ago had many tanks leaking air around the valve threads, BUT some brand new tanks were delivered during that trip. this time, no tanks leaking around valve threads AND all tanks had the last hydro stamp? hand circled with a black sharpie.

there was also some evidence of some rooms being over hauled. 500? block had 2 debris chutes.

the single level gear lockers in the dive orientation area have been replaced by full height dual lockers.

bad news:
we were there with a full house. 5 dive boats each morning, 3 each afternoon. cruise ships monday though thursday. 1 ship powered away and silted the dive site. Thankfully i was standing on the dock for that one.
