This was my second trip to Henry Morgan. My first, 3 years ago was a Family Outing. This one was a Dive Group from our local Dive Shop. Henry Morgan is not a fancy resort. It is plain and basic but it is clean and well looked after. There are no a la carte restaurants. It is all buffet and the menu can get repetitive.
They have a nice pool with lots of shade around it and the beach has pam trees and lots of palapas for shade. It is a beautiful sand beach. There are two down sides to the beach. One, is that the sand fleas come out at about 4 PM. If you are still on the beach and don't have insect repellant on, you will be scratching your legs. Secondly, the cruise ship hoardes. The ships aren't in every day but when they are in, it brings a huge influx of tourists wandering up and down the beach. When they aren't in, it is quiet and peaceful.
Some of the people in our dive group had trouble with the running water in their rooms. Others, including me had trouble with the air conditioning. They came and fixed it once but it died again. The second time, they fixed it properly but not until after I had sweated through an uncomfortable night.
The dive operation is competent and professional. The boats are well maintained. We had 17 people in our group so we were all able to go on one boat. Lindy was the divemaster who worked with our group. He was a lot of fun and did a great job of pointing things out to us. We took us on many amazing swim-throughs.
If you go to Henry Morgan expecting a Jamaica or Mayan Riviera 4 Star resort, you will be disappointed. It is basic but clean and comfortable with a wonderful beach. Enjoy.
