Comments Anse Chastanet is a great resort - food and service are excellent. We went with the all inclusive food and booze plan and we got our moneys worth. We were glad that we got a Beach Room with A/C. Our only minor complaints would be the walk up the hill from the Beach to the main restaurant, poor lighting in the room, and no A/C in the bathroom. But all in all, this is a superior resort. Not quite as superior as Jade Mountain further up the hill, but that place is some serious money.

The dive operation was well run, tight but friendly and accommodating. My wife has a bad back and the boat crew was very helpful with her gear and getting her in and out of the water.

Dive locations were nearby. Diving was better than expected. Didn't see anything big other than one Hawksbill and a Barracuda but lots of small stuff - fish and creatures - and good coral. Never saw so many shrimp, spotted morays, sharptail eels,.... Enjoyed all twelve dives that we did, mostly drift diving. Very relaxing.

Definitely would recommend Anse Chastanet for a higher end dive vacation.
