My wife and I have taken several trips with a lot of scuba diving, including the Cayman Islands at the Ritz Carlton in April of this year, and this was our favorite all time trip
We flew into Belize City June 13th to stay for the evening as we could not get in on time to catch the Saturday boat. If at all possible, skip the night in Belize City, even if it means paying the $450 for a extra boat sent out from the island. Belize city is a dump and not worth staying in.
The boat trip out to the island is two very pleasant hours of getting to know the others we would be spending the week with. We were fortunate that only 12 people were on the island that week, and being we had reserved Cabana #8 which is the furthest from the main complex, and no one was in 1 through 7, it was like we had the entire beach to ourselves. My wife absolutely fell in love with this place. The diving was outstanding, the food great and the service far beyond what we had expected. Paul and Kelly run a very tight ship here, yet the staff all seemed to really enjoy their time with us. There is a pod of dolphins that hang around not too far from the dock and you often see them.
You would think that on a trip with no TV, phones, radio, etc, you might get bored. Not true at all. We had to fight to find free time from all of the scuba diving! Thisis a wonderfull trip if you like diving, fishing, or just snorkeling and want to be pampered with eveything else. The outdoor shower was great as well. We will go back here again and again.
