I always check the best and the worst reviews before choosing a resort or vacation spot. You can look up the worst one about Pirates Point Resort, but that person could not possibly ever have gone there!
This was our first time there and we felt like part of the family the first day. The staff always had time to answer questions and solve any problems, no matter how small (no big ones ever came up). Our room was bright and airy and had a wonderful tropical decor without being gaudy.
We can understand some "hard core" divers grumbling about "only two dives a day," but an hour and a half to two hours under water was just right for us. They don't cut dives short, but ask you to come up with 500 psi in your tank, a standard with most dive operations. And we all went diving on the same Bloody Bay wall.
We saved the best part for last! They had two chefs (not cooks, CHEFS!) and all of our meals were gourmet. you may have croissants, banana crapes or quiche for breakfast, full lunches, and possibly a stuffed pork tenderloin or or wonderful fish for dinner. They even have guests coming in from other resorts for dinner. You have to try that if you decide to stay someplace else. They were nice enough to give serve us a full lunch two hours early because of our flight time.
Ok, every review should have a "but" in it, even if you have to pick something minor. So... the bar-lounge area was a bit kitschy, but you would have to see it for yourself to understand.
Bottom line, don't go there if you want to dive your brains out and come home more worn out than when you left, but do go if you want to be pampered, spoiled and totally relaxed after a week or so on Bloody Bay Wall.
