Comments Blue XT Sea was wonderful. Very, very accomodating before, during and after. Everything from fresh muffins, juices, water to helping divers before, during and after dives. Would use them again in a heartbeat. Did a great job with our 16 year old one a night dive.

The resort accomodations were nice, but the buffet (All Inclusive was lousy). On a good, note, room service was included in the AI and it was pretty darn good. There is a nice dress up restaraunt that you can make reservations for each moring, but you cannot wear gym shoes of any type-Need to wear "leather" shoes, which precluded my wife and I and our three teenage sons from using same.

This was our 2nd visit to Coz-first time to Iberostar at the south end of the island and this place now at the northern end. Next time, I think we will look at something closer to town like El Cantil condos and eat in the many good restaraunts that are available.
