Comments I am new to Undercurrent and have spent the past 2 months periodically looking through the 2004 Chapbook. Nothing I have read tops the overall experience my wife and I have had diving at Paradise Villas/Divers over the past three New Years. As long as we can travel, we will be returning to Paradise Villas. Why? For us, going to Paradise Villas is a sure bet that our diving vacation will be wonderful. Why take a chance elsewhere?
I won't repeat what's in the other Chapbook reports about Marc, Sabine, Vince, Rod,or the villas. The praises are not overstatements. It's all true. Here are a few things I did not read from others. There is a new chief at the Hungry Iguana. The food has gone from "good" to "very good". My wife and I also enjoyed eating dinner on our Villa porch. The frozen steaks and pork chops at the nearby grocery store have been of high quality. While underwater Vince and Rod are very good at finding the "little things". They have taken us out diving when we were the only 2 divers at the resort one day. They have been very helpful with equipment problems, one time loaning my wife a regulator for the trip when hers became unreliable, another time providing me with a flashlight when mine flooded. Vince has updated their, and new pictures are posted on Fridays. I will be forever grateful to the people who told me about Paradise Villas, and I look forward to diving again with the repeat customers.
