Comments I chose Sunset House for the shore diving. I needed to complete certification for 2 OW students and this looked like the best choice. It is easy in and easy out at the "sea pool". There was surge in the pool, but it wasn't so bad that it distracted from what we wanted to accomplish. It is a nice swim out to the mermaid and you can poke around the reef and look for critters. So, it is a great place to get your gills working again if you have not been diving in awhile.

The dive operation was well run and the dive masters were very helpful. There are lockers near the dive shop for storage and the boats were comfortable and not overcrowded. The diving was good with sharks, turtles or stingrays sighted on just about every dive. The last dive we did was on the south side and was one of the most enjoyable Caribbean dives I've had in awhile. The coral was in great shape, tons of fish, outstanding visibility and a flat, calm ocean.

The rooms are comfortable and clean, with easy access to the rest of the resort. Checkin was easy and the staff very helpful. You can dine indoors or out and the food is good. A pretty good variety and some interesting offerings with Indian cuisine.

I enjoyed everything about our week at Sunset.
