Comments The hotel operation & service has improved greatly with the new owners. All rooms look out over the ocean. The rooms are good sized with two beds. You have a balcony and shower. It is a small hotel and the owners and staff make you feel like family. The resturant meals are excellent. I find them in the same class as the better resturants in town. My diving package included breakfast all days and lunch on diving days. One on the house dinner is also included.
The dive operation has fast boats and a larger one. There are new double rinse tanks along side the diver rinse shower. The staff makes every effort to make your dive experience a great one. We dove with Divemaster Jorge on all of our dives. The briefings were informative about the reef, current conditions, best dive depth, etc. without being over long. He is very helpful at finding hard to see critters. The boats carry O2 and surface intervals come with fruit and bread. The reefs are improving since hurricane Wilma. Lots of turtles, fish, lobster and crab. Fewer nurse sharks than I've seen before. Shore dives are free and there are resident eels and octopus just off the shop. Some Eco reefs were installed while I was there and should attract more life soon. Overall it was a great trip and I look forward to diving here again next year.
