We visit TUrneffe Island Resort, not to be confused with Turneffe Flats, last month. Iy t was 1 year and 1q month ago since our last visit. It looked just about the same no aging just removal of canopy style on-beds that was welcome. THough they looked nice they were a little annoying in 2011 getting in and out of bed. We were on the resort packgage that offers us 2 1.5 hour snorles a day. The quality of the coral was slightly less perfect less than last year than last year becacause of the affect of coral bleaching but we have been to 3 other spots more north in the Caribbean and it is far worse. The only place we still find fairly pristine conditions are in Indonesua but that involves a 25-28 plane ride to Bunaken, Wakatobi, and a fe places on thde Malaysian Peninsula.
We had about 15 hguests during our stat with a few divers and 8 fishermen though the resort could hold more and the folowing week it was going to be full (~32 I believe).
The food was goodand though the head cook was off the food rasked as well prepared as last year bt the Assist. Cook. The resort is fortunate to have an extrememly stable staff who understAnd cutomer service. The cottages and rooms aree nice considering the remote location with hoy cofee/rea outside your roomn at 6:30AM before a 7:30 brekfast with activities starting at 8:15 except snorkelers who start at 10. All rooms have effective A/C which is important to a New Jersey couple. Last year the age range was from about 28-60 but this year it was 40+ to a women diver who was 85 from CA.
