Comments I was there with the PADI Diving Society Singles group of 100+ divers. The dive operation was at maximum capacity. Only inconvenience was an occasional wait for tanks to be filled due to the large number of divers. Overall operation was great. They made every attempt to accomodate everyone. For diving from the pier they would shuttle tanks and divers by boat from the dive shop. Some people left their gear on the pier overnight without a problem. The dive shop would have fresh tanks waiting for dawn dives.

The food was the best I've ever had at an all inclusive resort. Buffets were served for every meal but the selection and quality of the food was first rate. On two evenings they served grilled lobster tails as well as crab and other seafood. They could have used a second person cooking eggs to order a couple of mornings to lesson the wait.

Rooms were not fancy but were clean, comfortable and cleaned daily.
