History of Diving Museum
Bud n' Mary's Dive Center
Great facility. Easily accessible. Professional and courteous staff members. Nice and clean
ROOM AND SERVICE PEOPLE WERE GOOD AND HELPFUL NOT A "4" STAR LUXURY RETREAT BASED ON THE DAILY RATE BUT OK .
I am a female police officer. I went on a mini vacation and stayed in this hotel. Staff, food and cleanliness were great. But I do have a safety suggestion that I unfortunately realized how unsafe this was until I had a bad experience. When you check in they ask you to put on a wrist band that you cannot take off (even if you try) so employees can verify you are a guest at the hotel. Not a problem until you leave the hotel and go to different locations in the area and bump into someone local and unfortunately don't have good intentions or they are a habitual criminals and are familiar with tourist wearing their hotel name on the wrist. This makes them know a few things: 1) that they are a tourist (not familiar with area) making the tourist an easy target. Marking them as an easy target to rob them as tourist usually carry cash on them. Break into vehicles since tourist shop for gifts. 2) and the most important and unfortunately it happened to me. The suspect/offender will know where you are staying making it easy for them to plan the crime. I had an unknown male approach me while I was listening to music and having dinner and drinks with my female friend at a restaurant nearby. Male extended his arm as if he was introducing himself. He made it seem as if he was the manager so I politely extended my arm and shook his hand. He introduced himself. He was a customer. He asked me if he can buy me a drink and hang out with him. I kindly declined as I am a married woman. Little did I know or realized he already knew where I was staying because that's when he took advantage and read the bracelet that sqys the hotel name. Long story short without going into details I saw this male the next morning in the property canvassing the area. Still didn't think much of it till I saw him at night again, qt which point he aggressively approached my friend and myself. I will not go into details but because of that bracelet I became a victim. I hope that policy changes where we do not have to wear anything advertising our 'home' location to everyone and anyone. That is our home when we go on vacation.
The location was nice, and the staff was helpful and kind. The on-site restaurant was not only delicious but also staffed by friendly folks. We experienced problems with the air conditioning in our room, which took several phone calls to the front desk to fix. They were also remodeling the hotel, so there was quite a bit of noise and such during the day. If I had to do it again, I'd stay somewhere else.
I enjoyed the location and appreciated the size of our room, almost a a one bedroom apartment. We didn't like that you could hear every footstep and door slam from our neighbors.
I loved the view and the size of the rooms however they were dated. There is nowhere to even buy a bottle of water on the resort. Needs a tiki bar and at least a snack bar.. Or soda machine!
Just ONE catamaran is not ready for sailing. Lack some important accessories for normal sailing.
