Comments Good--Great staff, management very helpful. North side of island had good diving. Current limited those sites to two times in two weeks--check the phase of the moon before scheduling dates. Dove with 4-6 divers with a guide. We had more divers who wanted Nitrox than the resort had tanks for; but they made arrangements to accommodate us and everyone was able to dive Nitrox.

Bad--box lunches on boats were marginal. Dive guide was very passive about pointing out fish/critters, etc. Had one guide that was interested in showing off his reef; unfortunately, he was only with us a couple of times during the two weeks. My wife snorkels and she had to go on the boats to snorkel and stay out until the snorkel boat returned after lunch with the tanks from the A.M. dive (our group was around 12-15 divers with 3 boats for divers and one snorkel boat). Set/Fixed meals for group could have been better--meat overcooked. Evening buffet when not having a set meal was average. Eggs to order with breakfast plus the regular buffet.
