Comments food, service, accommodations, and staff were the best!!! i used to dive, but can no longer equalize. despite that, each snorkel was amazing. within ten feet of the dive bar/end of jetty on dusk/night snorkels, i saw a broadclub cuttlefish, various octopi, including a mating pair, huge green morays out!! so their entire length was visible, and three different species of urchins on the rocks. along the extent of the house reef were aggressive nesting titan triggerfish [a very frightening expereience, after it bit my fin and kept rushing me], innumerable niger triggers, schools of moorish idols, and more butterflies that you can count. lots of nudibranchs. three spanish dancers were in a foot of water inches from the resort's shore once during the day, but they came there to die. on boat snorkels, i chalked up another broadclub, and was within inches of a long-sought 10" pinnatus bat. I am returning in this december.
