Comments We were delighted with our divemaster (Greg) and boat captain (Tyronne), but had a terrible, dangerous and maddening dive with a sustitute group (others reported same bad experiences). This is a professional & well run organization, but some inept leaders on other boats. We were very fortunate as they(ours) were very willing to adapt profile & location to those aboard & staying at the resort. Good communications! Some outside/non-guests were allowed on boats and were a distraction with personal agendas and only rude, mostly photography objectives. We stayed in contact with divemaster & kept to a reasonable profile. Typically you are assigned to a specific boat & crew for a given week, which is good. Very helpful with entry & exit as a friend had some back problems & they were very considerate. Searched for & found many unique creatures (seahorses, etc...)with their help. Large green moray came out among us, turtles, some large fish (grouper) and many small and varied colorful reefs. Very good, but not great marine life. An open water dive with Dolphins is a feature (optional) dive in 60' and was natural and very enjoyable with fun interaction. Varied divers experience levels, but mostly ok -new/amatuers taken aside & monitored. Resort very, very efficient and well run, all personnel extremely friendly, nice and helpful. Food ok to good, some variety. Very laid back with a few activities. Rooms over water (cabins) were great on an out-island with simple, quick boat shuttle. Not much to see/do on Roatan but it is scenic, 3rd world. No pool yet, being built. Very good experience, decent value. Many return guests, would go back,diving not outstanding, but very good. Looked at the other resorts(?) on island & this is by far the best, especially location, access to sites, water conditions & operations. Overall very positive experience. Would recommend fairly highly.
