What an amazingly welcoming and comfortable place. Staff is wonderful. Diving is great and very unique. Terrific dive boat. I could not have imagined a better experience. The dive staff, Alicia, Michael, Ash and the super competent Captain:) were delightful. I have to say that this dive operation ranks number 1 on my list after 28 years of diving. Rooms...

We choose this hotel due to its convenience for diving, but even that is questionable. The hotel is very simple and basic and the room has a descent size. No amenities at all, so most of the people had to go out to buy shampoo and soap, as the one provided was the worst! The shower was a challenge! We...

My daughter (who now lives on Dominica) arranged this wonderful afternoon for my 60th birthday. What a fantastic never-to-be-forgotten experience !! The catamaran was expertly staffed. The guys really knew their stuff and readied us to take photos when they anticipated the whales' diving ("fluking" they called it) Didn't stay at the hotel but looked very clean and a good...

This "Resort" has just enough amenities to make it so but it really is a Dive Center. It has an amazing waterfront locale and some beautiful greenery, air conditioning in the rooms, a restaurant, pool and bar, and helpful staff to make your stay comfortable. By North American standards, the rooms are motel-ish with simple tile floors, limited furnishings, plastic...

Beautiful laid back setting. Great staff, very friendly and a lot of fun. Great diving right out front and outstanding boat dives right from the dock. Great location for exploring the town or as a central location for exploring the southern portion of the island. Rooms were simple but nice. This isn't a 5 star luxury resort (thank goodness) but...

It is old and run down and that is ok but the staff were the worst I think I have ever seen. I understand island slow but these people were just plain rude and sometimes nasty.
