Comments Very professional, good briefings before each dive.Easy in/ out though a long wait on the line before descent. The boats were very clean with rinse buckets for cameras and another for masks. A night dive was right off their little cove just me and my buddy with a divemaster. Turtles were seen on each dive. The deeper dives were very interesting with lots of cuts and canyons, swimthroughs. I missed seeing anything big.There was only one nurse shark asleep under a ledge on one of the shallow dives. Sting Ray City was a disappointment. Just 4 Rays which we spent too much time hanging around. It was much more fun the first time.
The Comfort Suites was a ral bargain. The room was big and clean and there wa a restaurant on premises with a bar. The food here though bar food was reasonable though everywhere else food was very costly, around $100/ person for dinner.
Don Foster's has a small shop on the hotel property and shuffles you to their dock and back in a van( about 20 minutes each way)
This was one very busy place and by the look of all the building cranes on seven mile beach it will only get busier.
