I want to write a positive review of Lion's after reading the two negative reviews on this site. I was part of a group from my local dive shop in July 2004. the lady at the reception desk on arrival was professional and courteous. The room my dive buddy and I got was more like an apartment, 2br 2ba for the two of us! I realize this was probably because of space available at the time. The rooms were clean, and kept so by the maid who came daily, even straigtening up in the kitchen and washing the dishes we left in the sink. The beds were perfectly made. The grounds are beautiful and kept in great condition. The pool was very nice and clear. The staff at the dive shop and at Lion's Den were friendly and attentive to our needs.The manager of Lion's Den was always fron and center and was a great person to have a conversation with, whether at dinner or sitting at the bar. This may have all changed with Buddy Dive's purchase of Lion's, and as I will be returning this July, I will reserve judgment until then.
