Comments The dive staff was very polite, professional and efficient, but not overly friendly. They would try to honor requests for specific dive sites whenever possible. If you take your own gear, be prepared to pay excess baggage charges (both ways) on Island Air (50 cents per pound for anything over 55 lbs per person), and be prepared that it might arrive on a later flight. You CAN ask the Island Air counter person to mark a certain bag(s) (your clothes?) as "EXCESS" if you are over and it'll come on a later flight. Rooms were clean, but when we were there, there was often a pervasive odor from the nearby booby pond ... perhaps due to the heat. (Avg. daytime highs around 95 degrees.) PM front desk staffer was unfriendly, AM person much nicer. Be sure to double check your bill when you check out. We had another person's $75 tab added to ours, but it was quickly remedied when we pointed it out. (Bar prices were outrageous and not very visibly out!) If you want to hang out at the bar or beach after dark, bring mosquito repellant. We would recommend and return there, although not right away. We were somewhat disappointed with the quantity of fish, especially lack of big schools, but the reef sharks were awesome!
