This was our second visit to SCC--our first was five years ago. If you want luxury or to party all night, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to dive, it's pretty close to ideal.
#1. Location: Close enough to downtown to walk--and very close to a huge Wall-mart type store where you can get food, drinks, sunscreen, clothes, etc. However, the boat rides to the dive sites are quite long and some of the smaller boats are on the slow side.
#2. The rooms: Yes, the beds are, shall we say, firm, but the rooms are large and have lots of space for all your dive gear, a balcony, and, most importantly, really hot water and lots of it. Also, everything is extremely clean. They have water coolers on each floor and provide all guests with a pitcher.
#3. The food: the breakfast buffet has something for everyone (including lots of fruit); lunch is a salad bar, plus American or Mexican items, and dinner is an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Drinks are extra. It's not particularly fancy or gourmet, but it's good and filling. They have a Mexican-style BBQ once a week with a pinata.
#4. The pool is tiny, there are hammocks facing the water, a pier and a shore dive, and NO BEACH. I can't imagine how bored the non-divers must be here. IMHO, if you want a place with lots of activities that include diving, go somewhere else. But if diving is your focus, and you like to be around other divers, this is a good place to be.
#5. Service is generally excellent and the price is hard to beat. Bring your own towels for the boat and your own lock for your dive locker. And request Geiser for your divemaster--he was excellent!
