Staying at Pirates Point Resort was like being a guest at someone's week long house party - relaxed, laid back, excellent food and easy mingling with other guests. Everything about the 10-room resort is casual - from dress to meals. Guests even help themselves to drinks at the bar. Two excellent chefs ensure that meals are delcious and varied. Guests with special dietary requirements were also well taken care of. Two couples from a nearby resort had dinner at our resort one evening and practically swooned over the food. They told us the food where they were staying was nearly inedible - said that nothing but porridge had been served for breakfast that morning. They couldn't believe that while they were eating porridge we had the usual breakfast buffet fare (cereal, yogurt, fresh fruits, pastries, etc) and the special breakfast feature that morning (it changed daily) had been banana crepes! This is not a resort (or island) for folks wanting night life, shopping experiences or luxury. Rooms are large and comfortable and if they don't face the beach - air conditioning is available for a reasonable surcharge. There are no phones, televisions or radios in the rooms. Free wifi is available in and around the clubhouse. The majority of guests come for the diving and some come just to relax and get away from life's usual hectic pace. Besides diving there is snorkeling off the beach, a swimming pool and hot tub, and bikes are available for the taking for those wanting to tour the island. The diving was easy - there were no currents while we were there! Bloody Bay Wall was spectacular and dives on the other side of the island were nice - even a lovely stand of Elk Horn coral on the south side of the island. The resort offers 2 dives a day, but you get to stay down until your tank is at 500 psi - so for people who are not heavy breathers dives can last well over an hour. Heavy breathers wait on the boat until all divers are on board. The only negative of the trip was the no-see-ems. They found some people tastier than others and were a nuisance - even when using the repellent with 30% deet that was in each room. Next time we'll take our own repellent that is 98% Deet!
