Comments It was MUCH better than we'd ever have thought. The service was quite extraordinary - in terms of dining, bar, room comfort and cleanliness, the dive operation, extras like fishing, and their contact with the local airlines to confirm flights. NOT ONCE was tipping mentioned or even subtly displayed (ie like a "TIP JAR"). I actually had to ask management on the last day - one of the few places to let you put tips on your credit card. Honor bar and honor shopping (if no one was in the shop). Food was absolutely delicious and plentiful with meat and vegetarian choices all the time. The large beach is dotted with bungalows - all with lounge chairs. Hammocks and picnic tables here and there in the shade. The salt water pool is located right next to the bar and dining area- so you can eat wherever you want - alone or with the group. Fun stuff like Friday night BBQ on the dock - the locals also gather. We booked a 3 tank per day package and so got in all the dives we wanted. However, if you don't get this package, you'll need 4 people for the boat to go out, or pay a fuel surcharge. We added some guided fishing - bonefishing on the flats from a skiff - fairly inexpensive for 4 hours. Deep sea fishing is also available. This resort will be our first choice for a return to the Caribbean.
