I've stayed at OTW twice already and plan many more trips. I can't recommend it highly enough. Jim, Kendra and the staff are all just the loveliest people, the place is a rustic dream and the scuba diving and snorkeling are the some of the best I've ever seen-- OTW is right smack in the middle of a World Heritage site, with the main attractions just a wade away! I gotta tell ya, I felt a little sorry for the boats I'd see from resorts on the mainland-- it's such a long haul to go do something that I could just indulge in whenever I felt like it : )
My son got certified by instructor Doreth, who is just the greatest guy-- and I can't recommend my divemaster, Matthew, enough. We saw turtles, barracuda, octopi, squid, eagle rays, and a million other awesome things. Jaw-dropping, sublime beauty at every turn. It's like "Finding Nemo," but for real!
And they keep the place so nicely. And everyone is so gracious. And what a cook! She's amazing!
And last, but very important-- Belize has a sand flea problem. OTW has NO SAND FLEA PROBLEM!!! I've stayed at fancy resorts in Belize and I've just gotten chewed up by sand fleas. Not here-- which makes it worth every last penny. Seriously. Sand fleas are the worst.
