For the Caribbean, this is a very nice place. People are great. Rooms are nice. Diving is great as long as the wind does not blow very hard, and even then it is ok.
So what is not great? Well for starters, the buffet. It is a buffet, and as buffet goes, it is actually pretty good, Desert was mostly cake...different kinds, but cake or cake like every night. Ok, they did have this neat fried cheese cake (not really cake) two nights. I thought the quality was good, which is about as high as I can rate a buffet.
The rooms while nice, had paper thin walls. Thankfully those next to me were very quiet people, but had they not been, it would have sucked.
If you order a drink at the bar, there is no way to know what the price is. I ended up going up to the front office to find out the next day, but it would be easy to spend a ton of money and not realize it.
One of our group had their toothpaste removed and went to the local store to get some, they were charged $14 for a tube, so be advised to be careful to have everything. It should be noted on this issue that the front office had free small containers, if asked.
I was in room 112. Pretty room, had a TV that did not actually have a picture (why do places insist on putting a TV in a room, where they don't really have TV?). The shower worked, but has some flow issues when used at normal water temperatures, and the shower curtain did not stay inside the shower (mounted too high), so the room floor got really wet.
Still, I like the place overall and had a very nice time.
