Comments Stayed in large, beautiful recently redecorated ocean front bure with lots of privacy,air conditioning, ocean view. Very good food. Nitrox expensive at $17 US per tank. Shallow reef tops on dives were very beautiful with lots of coral and had lots of small tropical fish. However, lacking in larger fish. Mostly hard coral and some soft coral. Boats in bad condition with our boat, Tradition, breaking down completely one day and overheating on three other days requiring stopping the boat completely for abou5 15 minutes to allow the engine to cool. Other dive boat, C-Harley, which went out with us also broke down completely one day and had to be towed back. There is an island about an hour boat ride where the diving was superior. Our boat went one day out of the five days we were there. The other boat went two days.If you go for an ocean front room ask for one of units numbered 1 through 5 which are recently redecorated.
