Comments The hotel and dive operation were outstanding. We got our Drift diving cert. while we were there and the divemaster was excellent. The hotel is cozy and is well set up for divers. They have lockers down by the water with bins to rinse gear. You need to bring your own lock though. The food was excellent and we are really picky eaters. You do not come into shore in between dives (which we didn't know before) so you have to bring food. So for our first day of diving, we were starving. But there is a grocery store close to the resort and you can get goodies there.

They have free internet access, but it is only in the eating area. Which was ok by us, we did our internet while we ate.

The rooms are really nice with a small fridge in them. The bathroom are large enough with a really cool shower.

The dive shop is on site and the divemaster and crew are excellent. They make sure you see everything you can and after they get to know how you dive will let you dive on your own. Since it is all drift diving, the boat comes and picks you up anyways. The boats are all big and the most divers we had was about 15 and it didn't seem like a lot, you could still move around the boat. We really appreciated the big boats as the marina got closed down for a day, because a small dive boat had sunk the day before. So all of us bored divers decided to rent a taxi (for $5 a taxi load including gear) and we went to the lighthouse and did a drift dive back to our hotel. This became a 90 minute dive and was really a great dive.

We enjoyed it at Scuba Club so much we have already booked again for this year. It makes for a nice care free vacation.
