Comments The good: only a few days of high winds; water temp. was 29 deg. C;
nice resort; nice people; most resort people and dive staff spoke English; divers were friendly and polite; lots of dolphins to sort of play with at the jetty; the house reef had a good reef.

the bad: that resort was next door to Dreams; other than that , there was no choice for food except the meals at the resort; the jetty diving was 10 min. away which my DM did not charge for; they charge for DM of 5 euro per dive and zodiac of 4 euro per dive; the local house reef was ok for 1 dive then the winds came up; so, we went to a protected but murky bay 2 min. away; the resort has a sly guy who wanted to make extra money.

The deal was $174 for interval int'l for a week; but, so limited diving.
