We visited Alona Beach last year in November, and had a great trip. We spent a lot of our time here diving with the associated Sea Quest dive center, and found their service and equipment to be very good. One thing that was unexpectedly good here was getting someone to take care of our 2 year old. We did not do this directly through the resort, but rather through the office manager at the Seaquest Dive Center, who arranged for her sister to take care of our son. She did a terrific job with him, which gave my wife and I a good opportunity to enjoy some 'together time'.
