Comments Conch Club condos is a three minute bicycle ride from and is managed by Little Cayman Beach Resort, where we ate lunch & dinner. The condos are individual townhouses facing the beach, each individually decorated and containing every amenity (beach towels, dishwasher, cable TVs, stereos, a/c, full kitchens) on perfectly groomed grounds. Meals and the dive dock are accessed by a 10 minute walk or a pleasant three minute bike ride (on bikes provided by the resort) to the LCBR, where Chef Chubby prepared tasty and plentiful meals. The condos are much roomier, quieter and private than the well-maintained hotel rooms at LCBR. Both LCBR's and Conch Club Divers' boats leave from the LCBR dock. The CCD dive boat was spacious, well equipped, comfortable and the dive crew was most helpful and accomodating. The briefings were complete and the selection of dive sites, all on the awesome Bloody Bay wall, was diverse and interesting. The divemaster guides would lead those of us who wanted a tour on the best features of each site while leaving those who preferred their own profile to dive on their own. Full valet diving so after each dive morning we just rinsed and hung up our wet suits and fins, ate a tasty lunch at LCBR, and bicycled back to our townhouse for a relaxing afternoon. The wall diving is diverse, colorful, and easy. A full selection of the usual Caribbean reef fish and healthy corals. In the evenings, we biked back to the LCBR for dinner and then went to the bar, where to hockey and NBA playoffs were on the TV for a laid back evening, culminated by fun karaoke on Friday night. When Cayman Airways small plane broke down and couldn't get us back to Grand Cayman for our flights home, LCBR's manager had us picked up from the Little Cayman airstrip, comandeered one of the dive boats, had his staff load 20 passengers and their luggage on the boat, and took us on a one hour boat trip to the Brac, where he had the Cayman Airways jet hold its departure to get us all to Grand Cayman to make our connections home. It was above and beyond the call of duty and shows how you're well cared for at this top notch operation.
