The best vacation EVER!
If you want tile, stucco, manicured plants and aloof staff; don't stay here.
If you want clean rooms, good food, great diving and to be made to feel like you're the center of attention at the home of a favorite relative; this is your home away from home.
Starting with Jane who dealt with three of us trying to each organize the trip. I'm amazed at how well she kept things sorted.
Steve picked us at the airport and gave us a lot of options for activities on non-dive days.
Then Sara, Silvi and Brittney in reception got us settled in and were very patient all week each time we locked ourselves out of our room.
Carolina served us lunch. She made us feel like long lost family and went out of her way to make us feel at home. All week she met our special requests for things not on the restaurant or bar menus.
Victor was also amazing. Sorry Victor, if it wasn't for Carolina you would have been the best waiter ever. She's a hard act to follow.
Now the dive shop.
If you want cattle boats and canned diving; don't use these guys.
If you want diving tailored to your interests, small dive groups and an experienced, helpful crew; look no further.
Zoe, thanks for your wonderful work with the kids and for letting us grandparents hang around and photograph your class.
Martin, you always know where to find the good stuff. The pace of the dives were perfect for us.
Manual, thanks for always having the boat near and for dragging me out of the water when I was feeling to lazy to climb the ladder with my gear still on.
And last but not least, housekeeping. It was great to return after a morning diving to a sparkling room, fresh towels and all the sand gone. The sculpted folding of the towels was amazing. They added an extra feeling of someone having gone out of their way to make us feel special.
