Comments Overall we had a great time. The diving was as open or as restricted as you wanted it to be. There were ample oppurtunites to do 3 or 4 dives per day off the boat and as many as you wanted from shore. The shore dive from the gazebo is a must do especially at night. The resort is clean with good service. The waiters and barstaff are overworked so you might have to wait a little for a drink but be patient, you're on vacation, or get it yourself. The room we were in was fantastic but we did talk to a few others who found there rooms were looking a little dated. Rooms near the dive shop are noisy (compressors runs all the time).This is a great location for people who want to eat, sleep & dive. However if you are interested in non-diving side excursions, they few we tried we found overpriced and lame. Bring bug dope that is easy to apply, you will be apllying it alot.

UW Photo Comments Separate rinse tanks on all boats and back at the dock. No table on the boat however. There was a good facility on site, however if you need repairs or quick fix you had better be self reliant. Divemasters were very accomodating for UWP's pointing stuff out if desired and left alone if desired. Macro and close up photgraphy fantastic. The seahorses are amazing!
