Comments great diving, great place to stay, very relaxing quiet resort. dive boat just steps from all rooms. Small dive shop but they do an excellent job ,all dives ten minute boat ride away.
the boat has been overhauled since my last visit, new paint sun canopy and best of all a new engine. They have also rebuilt the dock.the restaurant menu has improved and the food is good,the bar is still great and staffed by the same wonderful crew of bartenders.
Only bad thing is the sand fleas, they are pretty bad , recommend very strong deet any time outside especially on beach. I highly recommend Las Roccas and dive shop
