The trip went very well. I had very good reports from the dive center and the way they treated our small group with their own boat even. The Instructor's were very accommodating. The hotel, we had no complaints.
My room was adequate. Very much inline with what I expected to get on
a dive vacation. Others in our party complained that their rooms were
a bit seedy and not clean enough, but the hotel management was helpful
in resolving these issues.
Service at the hotel was excellent. It's run by a British Lady
and a small staff. They were very accommodating.
When one of our non-diving travelers was injured, She personally took
her to the hospital, X-ray lab, and pharmacy. The hotel has a "pour
your own" honor bar, which was a big hit with the imbibers on the
trip. Food in the hotel restaurant was good to excellent. Fish
dishes tended to be better than beef dishes.
Diving was excellent. Reefs are in good condition with lots of fish.
We saw sharks every day. Stuart Cove's is a well-run operation, and
their staff is friendly and helpful. Several of our divers were
diving sidemount, and the boat staff were always glad to hand tanks to them in the water.We did a shark dive
and everyone on the trip raved about it.
We saw plenty of the unfortunately now-ubiquitous lion fish, and
sharks on almost every dive. Other wild life encounters were typical
of Caribbean diving.
