Comments US Airways was awful. Brac Reef Beach Resort was very nice. Clean, well-kept and effcient. We were on a 6 day package, all meals included. Didn't like the breakfast eggs. They tasted old. Outside bar was great except for no-see-ums---insect repellent needed. Dive boat very efficient, 2 morning dives. Cheery and hard-working dive masters made the diving super-easy. They explained the reef spots visited, helped with our tanks, regulators and vest always prepared. They were very efficient with body counts. Experienced divers are free to explore on own. Resort staff always friendly and helpful. Food was all buffet and great. WiFi available but was spotty. I'd return.
