We had a great time over there. We will be going back. Wow, there were a lot of stairs though. The dive shop was awesome! They had our gear ready for our shore dives and helped us in and out.

We had one gal that is too high maintenance and threw a fit over petty things like the remote control for the tv didn't work and no iron in the room. She wont be going back. All the staff were very courteous and did anything to make our stay good. Food was great! The Tangerine Tours was awesome! We had a blast! Highly recommend this tour group!
