Comments Strong Currents. Dive boat was crowded with children out of school. Would go back at another time when school is in session in the US.
Reef Club is just okay. Had to change rooms 3 times because air conditioner not working. Food was okay, but as a all inclusive resort, it was very repetative. Their "Italian Restaurant" was pure "Mexican Italian".
