Comments The need to make bubbles was overwhelming. This was one of the few places open to diving. I have been to Roatan 3-4 times in the past but never to this resort. I usually stay in Westend.

Food was buffet-style only and just OK. The staff was very attentive and helpful in the restaurant and at the dive center. Housekeeping was not attentive or helpful.

Diving was the usual you find in Roatan. Nothing stands out. Great dive gear storage and rinse station. Boats were designed for diving, well maintained, and in great shape. We had our own dive gear so cannot comment on rental gear.

Would I go back to Roatan again? Yes, when I can't get to Asia.

Would I go back to this resort? NO, I like Westend better.

PCR test for entry 72 hrs before departure, Masks except when eating, Quick test for return to US
