Comments Getting to the island is not always easy and your luggage doesn't always arrive when you do. Inter Air airline took off 10 minutes early and out flight on American was 5 minutes late. 50lbs limit and they charge plenty for being over.

Rooms were similar to motel rooms, but they were clean. Plenty of hot water, and the maid service was diligent. The ocean view rooms were much nicer. No frig in pool side rooms.

Food was outstanding. The deserts were to kill for. Great variety and very tasty. Good mix of local and American foods. Full breakfast, lunches and dinners. Wines were extra and over-priced.

Staff at the front desk was having a bad week when we were there. Check in was easy, but the staff was rushed and often made us feel uncomfortable asking for clean towels, like we were bothering them...!

Beach needs to be cleaned as well as the grounds. Lounge chairs were broken and rusted. Hammocks were always available. We rode the bikes around several nights after dinner. The pool was clean but way to hot.

Reef Divers were the DO, and they did a great job. Michael and Caleb took good care of us, although they rushed through their guiding in order to be on board to help divers coming up. They were great in switching our tanks and helping us with our gear. Koodos to them! The night dive was not great and I would not do it again and save myself $ 60.00 per person.

We were slightly disapointed with the amounts of fish. The corals were in good shape compared to other areas we have been. Lots of turtles, and rays, and a few sharks.

After most trips, we ask ourselves "would we go back?" Most of the time we say yes, but qualify it by saying "their are other places to go first." However, this time the answer was "Yes.....next August"
