    Rooms are in need of some renovations. The bathrooms smell like something is wrong with the sewers. Door locks barely function, you have to wriggle the key in a secret way to lock/unlock. Noisy environment.

    Dive operations are super! All staff are fantastic, helpful, and professional. Wonderful atmosphere, laid back, as it should be when diving in the Caribbean.

    The room definitely needs some "staging". Very stark environment and bare walls. It could use a good cleaning too, especially the windows. A new coat of paint would really help to brighten up the rooms. The second pool is under renovations, without any indication on the website or at check-in: This is not fair, or good customer service, to the patrons of the resort.

    Wonderful ambience, and best table, at the Ingridients Restaurant. We had a fabulous New Year's Eve dinner. Fireworks could be seen everywhere around the bay, from 7:00pm, every 15 minutes. Excellent fireworks at midnight from Buddy Dive. Best feature of the room was the huge bathroom with lots of hot water and excellent water pressure. The resort does have a good, friendly vibe, with multiple shaded areas for comfort. The outside areas are well maintained. One of the pools looks new and clean.

    Diving staff not overly accommodating, and very consistent about self serve including grab and carry your own tanks. Front desk staff not overly attentive with exception of one bubbly service oriented asian stand out. Dive shop corrected me that I should go put the lock back on locker versus turn in with key ... an example where there wasn't such service oriented attitude among staff. Dive Supervisor wasn't going to jump in and test conditions with dive site on night dive until pushed and declared didn't want to be shorted a dive due to bad conditions if he allowed everyone to enter water without validating would be safe good full term site.

    There is only AC in the bedroom; generally speaking, it's quite pricey for what you get; wifi is only in certain locations on the resort. Food on resort is ok but basically very limited

    This is a great dive place, nice dive facility and dive team, great beach view! Closely located to a nice supermarkert
