Comments AKR is a Top Notch Resort; everything runs like a well oiled machine and if there is a glitch -it's worked out quickly without hesitation or excuses. The staff (all of them!!) are extremely friendly and helpful.

Accommodations are nice, comfy, clean and well kept (we had a Key Superior room). The food was plentiful and above the norm, more like high end restaurant than dive resort. Delicious, creative - hats off to the chef and staff.

The dive operation is among the best I've dove with. The dives were fun and interesting... dive topography reminded me of a combo of Cozumel and Maui. Not many small fish but lots of the large grouper and jew fish that were in Cozumel years ago. Several spotted eagle rays and turtles - easy, enjoyable diving. GREAT boats, ample room, never overcrowded. Captain was friendly and helpful (Roger on the "Haydee") and if you get an option, ask for Calderon as your DM ... he was great! He was always on the lookout for interesting things to show you but let us dive our own profiles. The dolphin dive was enjoyable (some divers expected to much and were disappointed...these are not puppies!)

As anticipated, the 'no see-ums' were out in force, however, if you use repellant with at least 40% deet... you'll be fine. Be sure to spray it on and then spread it around with your hands. They WILL find the 1"x1" square that you missed!!

Can't say enough good about AKR.... so happy that I finally got there.
