Comments Excellent location for a family of divers. Great shore diving and great photo ops. Healthy corals off the resort and lots of critters. The sea pool is a great place to play with the kiddos or start a dive.
The dive operation has professional, knowlegable and friendly staff. Boat leaves at 8:15am and returns about noonish. First dive is a wall dive. Saw turtles and eagle rays on several dives. Several sites offer large swim thrus that bring divers out onto the wall. The second dive is a shallow reef or wreck dive. Lots of critters and reef fish. Although I have read reports and seen some sites with coral bleaching with other dive ops in the past, the staff kept us away from those sites and dove healthy reefs.
My Bar is the best bar/restaurant in the Caribbean. Delicious food, good service and a great place to meet other divers and locals.
We stayed in a suite this trip and have stayed in an ocean view room in the past. The rooms are clean and a great view of the water.
