We're a diving couple. This resort caters to fishing and diving. The week we stayed there we were the only divers. I was a bit concerned that because of that they would skimp on dive sites etc...
I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG! The dive staff and owners went out of their way to make sure we had great diving daily sparing no expense for fuel etc..! This was some of the best diving we've ever had and we've been around. The rooms were clean, bug free, everything worked. The staff was friendly and took great care of all the guests. The food was great. As far as the resort we couldn't have asked for better.
The only reason we give it an above average instead of excellent is if you're delayed in getting there plan on a $400+ bill to get you to the resort. We were delayed and missed the boat out. Our only option was to stay in a hotel and take a charter out the next day (only one available) at a cost of $300 or miss 3 days of vacation waiting for the next boat from the resort (resort boat is only Wed. or Sat.). Had we been made aware of this when we booked the trip we would have planned to arrive a day early. We're from the Midwest (WI) and trip delays are common this time of year. The resort owners went out of their way with everything else. I'm surprised that they didn't send one of the smaller boats to pick us up since it was the same size as the charter we took.
Soooo if you go to this resort... and we highly recommend it..... make sure you get there on time and/or have trip insurance.
