Comments Sunset Waters Beach Resort is wonderful, with the caring, attentive staff and great service, it's our favorite Caribbean spot bar none! We have at least 8 stays at this resort, and each time we return, there are positive changes. The food is excellent and my vegetarian husband is spoiled with personal meals and attention. Sunset Waters is truly our "home away from home".
Sunset Divers, too, improves with each trip. It is the best dive operation we have encountered, with professional, knowledgeable instructors and staff. Kevin, Lynn, Carlos, Steve and Kurt are fun, provide lots of support to and instill confidence in new divers and others advancing their skills. They are not only eager to find new critters, e.g., frog fish, seahorses, pipefish, leopard flatworms, etc., but always willing to help identify species we find on shore dives. The boats are clean, well cared-for and comfortable forup to 20+ divers. The house reef is excellent, and we dive it every afternoon/evening and always find something different from turtles and seahorses to slipper lobsters and octopi. On this trip, we watched a rare flying gurnard just off the beach area for over an hour! Too Cool!!
