The dive shop and hotel staff are wonderfully accommodating. They tailored a flexible package to meet out needs. It was a tremendous value compared to other places on Utila and far better than anything we could find on Roatan. The dive shop had new equipment and no add on charges (all equipment was included in the dive cost). After a familiarization dive they took us anywhere we wanted to go...on wrecks, night dives, deep dives, two tank dives in small groups of two to four divers. It was unbelievably fun and uncomplicated. All we had to do was walk 50 yards to to the dive shop from the hotel and the divemasters had everything ready for us to go. The instructors were there to take care of us and insure we had a great time.
The hotel is run by a very friendly family and staff that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. The atmosphere is very congenial and we were immediately welcomed by the owners and other guests in the dining room and bar when we arrived. The room we had was large, air conditioned and clean but definitely a no frills experience. This is a small economical hotel and it is a 20 minute walk from town. My son and I took a taxi to town once during our 4 day stay to go shopping and were perfectly content relaxing at our hotel the rest of our visit. We were not interested bar hopping and were happy eating all meals in the hotel. Visiting with the other guests and staff from all over the world during the family style meals was an unexpected pleasure.
If you are looking for a safe and memorable diving experience in a comfortable hotel I cannot image a better choice. The prices were very reasonable for the excellent services that we received.
