My husband and I probably picked the worst week ever to visit Off the Wall (weather was completely uncooperative on the cusp of the rainy/dry season) and we still managed to have a wonderful time. It's truly a special place and Kendra and Jim have gone to great lengths to make it so. Walking around, you see so much effort that they have carefully spent to make this place fantastic and feel like home...in the midst of the ocean.
Diving was our primary reason for choosing Off the Wall. We teetered between a nearby location that's a bit more rugged but we wanted to ensure an organized, timely operation in that sense and didn't feel strongly we would get that elsewhere. From the moment you begin corresponding with Off the Wall, you sense that you will be well taken care of and you are. The staff is wonderful. Lucky me I got a sinus infection on day 2, so diving was out for me for awhile. Kendra and Therese made me lemon grass tea and sat at talked while the other guests were out on their dives. We never tired of Jim's hilarious stories, these two meet so many people, yet they remain authentic and seemingly never tire of sharing their interesting lives. Off the Wall is very communal, meals are served together etc. Though my husband usually like to be alone doing our own thing, we really enjoyed the small group of people we spent our week with. There was still plenty of couple time to be had as well. A very special place, I feel lucky to have visited. If I can say this with a sinus infection and a week of rain, imagine how wonderful it is!
