Comments It was great diving with Brac Reef Divers. It was everything you would expect with "Valet Diving". You only touched your gear when you put it on at the back of the boat (with their help), underwater, and exiting the water. They took care of almost everything for you. The boats are in great condition and extremely well maintained. The staff was very accommodating and when a few people got sea sick after our 1st dive, they went into the dock for the surface interval. While we were there, it was windy and rough so we were not able to get to the east side of the island and the shipwreck Tidbits (even thou Phil did try one day for us) or Bloody Wall. It gives us a reason to go back.

The resort was exceptionally maintained, rooms were clean, and the staff very nice and laid back. The food was outstanding and for a buffet they had a great variety for all tastes. We loved the hammocks all over the property, the bikes were nice to have but no frills, and free wireless internet in the lobby that you could also connect at a few of the seats in the bar. If you want to go to a great dive resort this is the place to goif you looking for Ritz then go to the Ritz.
