Comments Been to CoCoView many times and it continues to get better; Rooms are basic, but clean; maid service good. Food continues to get better. Boutique, dive center and photo center provide excellent service. Dive boats being renovated, makes diving easy with ladders and center ladder. Lots of room on the boats. Each diver has a locker area for their gear; tanks are geared up for you. If possible, get on the boat captained by Rueben and Jesse as the Dive Master. Briefings are good; Rueben very helpful; Jesse makes the dives safe and fun; finds the small stuff for the photographers without neglecting the other divers. They have respect for the reefs and the divers. Having internet available is new and if you need it, you are not out of contact. Entire staff has a great attitude; tries their best to please and solve any problems. Though it rained the first few days and the viz was pretty bad in the "back yard", it is still great fun to visit CoCo View. It cleared up and the diving got better. I will be back.
