This is a laid-back, comfortable, informal retreat, where you can live life at a relaxed pace. The staff are welcoming and friendly. This is a place where you will soon be on a first-name basis with all the other guests, exchanging stories and sharing photographs in the evening.
You won't find room service, nightly entertainment, in-room internet, shopping or 1000-count bed linens. The cabins are comfortable, clean, spacious and functional, but people who expect a duplication of the Ritz-Carleton on a tropical island will be disappointed. Meals are served three times a day; while not fine dining, they are filling and varied.
The dive crews are inspire confidence. They assess the relative skills of their divers and plan their trips accordingly; novice, intermediate and advanced divers will all feel comfortable. The diving itself rivals any place in the world for the density and variety of coral and the dive masters will make sure to look out for and point out marine life divers might otherwise miss.
Non-divers have the options of spectacular snorkelling, fishing, hiking through the ground to look for crocodiles and iguanas, picnics on nearby Half-Moon Caye, and sea kayaking.
I will definitely be back ...
