Comments Great location for easy shore diving. Good dive operator. Good prep and detail for upcoming dives. Good safety protocols in place. The only negative I can think of was the need to bring ones own weights to and from the boat to ones locker as opposed to having weights available on board for convenience. Not the biggest deal but a standard I have observed elsewhere. My daughter did her certification dives there and I felt they did a good thorough and patient job with her. Kudos to her instructor, Romy.
Sunset house itself is nicely but but not luxuriously appointed. I was happy with the accommodations. Just know it is not the ritz Carlton, but everything is clean functional and available. Rooms were cleaned nicely everyday. Front desk folks were very nice, Karin, one of the managers I interacted with was super nice and extremely helpful with any issues that developed. Really a great go to resource.
Internet was suppose to have been upgraded. We had an ocean front room. Internet was very good on premesis and on porch. Not very good once you moved off porch into room.
Food was good and eating at my bar on the sea was just as nice , if not nicer, than some of the costly restaurants we ventured to. Very nice to eat dinner as sun was setting.
I look forward to returning again and again. Great value.

Excellent point regarding the weights! I have done 2 separate week long trips at Sunset House and carrying the weights around is a hassle.
