Comments This was the best dive experience I have ever had! Southern Cross Club was top-notch in every respect. The food was outstanding and the accomadations were clean, comfortable and spacious. My wife, a non-diver, thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of the club and had the beach and pool to herself almost every day. Even though the club was fully occupied while we were there, it seemed like we had the resort all to ourselves because of how cabanas are so nicely spaced. There are no TVs, radios, telephones or clocks in you suites. This is truly a place to relax and forget the hustle-bustle of the outside world.
The dive operation itself is absolutely superb! These were the best divemasters (Henry, Jason, Mike & Max) that I have ever been with! Henry, in particular, gave very detailed and informative breifings. All DMs wre extremely knowledgable about all the dive sites, did a great job making you feel like one of the group and were funny as all get-out.
The coral life was in excellent condition and there was plenty of small fish life. Visibility was great throughout the week and the wall is beyond discription.
Southern Cross is a little bit more expensive than the other resorts on the island but I would never go anywhere else after this experience!
