Very good Dive resort. Check in is slow but not a big deal. Rooms are more than adequate with ample room, bedroom AC, and nice living area with efficiency for cooking. Balconies are useful for additional hanging of equipment. The dive set up is very good although a little dungeonous where you store equipment. The boat dives were really good led by their staff. The Buddy Reef is great and can be visited any time and worth several visits. Convenient for early AM or night dives. Salt Pier night dive was great. The breakfast was definitely worth getting up for each day. Enough variety to keep it fresh. The Bar restaurant is pretty good. Ingridients is a great looking restaurant but the food is average. If you want a good meal I would head into town. Or the pizza next door at Dons Habitat is great! Most restaurants on the island are really slow to serve so if your rushing to get dives in, don't dine out. Overall Buddy Dive is great for why we go there. I recommend it as a great Dive headquarters.
