Comments I thought the diving was spectacular. Beautiful hard and soft corals. Several sharks on every dive. Lots of fish and some small critters. I only saw one turtle.
We had a large group, about 20 people, and the boat was crowded when everyone was diving. There is another small boat for small groups but it was being used for another group. Staff was all good.
The resort is beautiful - rebuilt 3 years ago after a devastating storm.
my biggest complaint is how much it rained. didn't disturb the diving but cut down on the time to sit around the pool in the sun. And the water felt cold. I would have liked a heavier wet suit.
