Outstanding dive trip to Utila last week. Mango Inn was very cozy with nice accommodations. Resort management was very friendly and responsive. Our A/C stopped working on the weekend and Sammy made the repair very quickly. He is a great asset to Mango... If owners are smart they will realize the value of their employee's and show them much appreciation.. The only negative of our stay was witnessing one of the owners having a not so kind conversation with Sammy.. Not very professional.. Hector was fantastic as well. He picked us up at the airport and dropped us off on our last day. Hector and Sammy hauled us to and from the Utila Dive Centre every day. The food at Mango was FANTASTIC... Kathy provided excellent service at the restaurant. Now the diving.. It was disappointing to say the least. We did 8 dives and other than swimming with some dolphins on one dive, the only thing we really saw was a spotted eagle ray. We went out for 3 hours with Utila Dive in search of whale sharks one afternoon. We saw three boils but no sign of the whale sharks surfacing so we did not get off the boat. We also went out for 4 hours the very next morning with Deep Blue and didn't spot any boils at all. Others were fortunate to spot and swim with a whale shark so they were out there but we were not lucky enough to spot one. Next trip..... :-)
The dive shop was great. Hannah is the best!!! Suzanne and Brian were great as well. The captains on each boat were also very nice, helpful and fun. Be sure to each at the Buccaneer, Munchies and Big mamma's!! All terrific food.
Be sure to say hi to Lola in the front office.. She is a beautiful black lab that loves to swim in the ocean.
