Comments [None]I with the help of my wife (travel agent) organised the group dive travel. My wife had visit the hotel before and relay like it. We were a group of 12 divers and 6 non divers. We left Montréal on a direct flight from Air Canada Rouge. The flight was nice as long as you have a ipad or similar devise to get access to the intertainment during the flight (Wi-Fi). There is no free food so you need to bring your own or pay for it (not so good). The flight personal is very friendly. We choose Dressel Divers as it is on site and offer pre-payment with 20% off. Has a group we had and extra discount. The 12 divers took the Gorilla package (8 dives in Cozumel, 1 night dive and 2 dives in the Cenotes) nitrox includ for certified diver. We did Colombia Ladrillo, Punta Francesca, Palancar Horse shoe, San Francisco, Paso del Cedral, Punta Dalilla, Santa Rosa Reef(night dive), Punta Sur Cathedral and Jurassic Park. We also went to dive the Cenote Dos Ojos for two dive transfert, all fees and lunch include for 415$. We saw Eagle Ray, turtles, plenty of carabbean fishs and Pipefish. The dive boat were taking 18 divers at the time, as we were only 5 to 10 minutes from the different dives sites we came back to the hotel from new tank and surface interval. We were only 6 divers per guide, Jay, Alan, Ronan, Liam and Juliam (cenote) did a great jod finding small creature and guiding us. The hotel rooms were in small unit of 8 or 4 per unit. We had a second floor room. All room had frig with water bottle, beer, soft drink, safe, AC, wall TV, very clean and the maid did a great job. The food was very good and fresh, buffet or restaurant a la carte. The personnel was alway smilling. The drink were well prepared. So all this Flight, Hotel, food and drink for 970$ in an all inclusive hotel. The hotel is the last one to the South end of the island. We all want to return soon
