after reading the posts we do want a pool, we like staying in condo's, kitchen is nice. we saw a few people recommended the palms or the carribien villas. we like the look of both from their web sites, the deciding factor is who to dive with and where to stay based on that. the recomendation for the palms was to dive with ramon's next door, the person who stayed at carribean villas said they dove with amigo's del mar and they picked them up on the pier, does any one have a preference between the two, we are novice to imtermediate diveres weve been certified since 1990 but took a 6 year break until two years ago and have gone diving one week each year since. we want a friendly helpful crew with personal atention and a nice boat with easy exit/ rentry.
