Comments The resort is beautiful. We stayed in a bungalow on the west side of the key and saw the sun set every night. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. While the meals are served to you, you always get to chose what you want to eat, and you can even ask for more than one option. Once again with trips to Honderas, you have to be prepared for the "no see ums". Try Cactus Juice(, we found that to work the best and you didn't smell like chemicals. We found the resort from above water to be a "5", unfortunately, below the water was a generous "3". Every morning you had to bring all your gear on board and set it up(they were nice enough to bring the tanks on board). The dive sites for the most part were a five munite boat ride from the resort. We found all the sites to look like one another, except for the sites on the south side of the island. They were much better, but the resort didn't seem to want us to go there($$??). They did have there share of large groupers and snappers, but other than that, it was a yawner. If you go, make sure you dive Mary's Place. That was the best dive of the trip. It is a deep dive through giant crevices and the fish life is good. If you have never seen Seahorses before, this dive site will definately take care of that need.
