This is our 6th time on Little Cayman with Paradise Divers at Paradise
Villas.  Every time we go somewhere else, I wonder why we even bothered.
Combination of Paradise Villas accommodations with  Little Cayman diving is
nothing less than perfect diving vacation. Stunning wall diving, peaceful
setting, terrific views, great food and friendly locals makes it the very
best.  Mantas, whale sharks and giant squid on every dive could have
certainly spiced it a bit, but other than that diving is incredible. Light
or no currents, great visibility and abundant marine life with nurse
sharks, turtles, eagle rays, moray and spotted eels, and lobsters make up
for the lack of really big stuff.
Paradise Villas IMHO is the best accommodations on the island if you are
after comfortable and spacious efficiency unit with stunning views, superb
room service and quiet surroundings.  Ocean is the only noise you will
hear. If you are after nightlife, you are on the wrong island. We usually
had breakfast and lunch on the porch of our unit.  The convenience store is
next to the resort. Dinners are at Hungry Iguana restaurant on the premises
and the food is delicious. Managers of Paradise Villas Marc and Sabine take
such a good care of all your needs that you feel like an old friend.  I am
not sure if the word NO even exists in their vocabulary.
Paradise Divers lately combined their operation with Conch Club Divers. 
Conch Club Divers uses very comfortable uncrowded 42' Newton boat, with
head, fresh water and camera table. Regulators and BCs are staying on the
boat, and wetsuites, fins, masks are stored in the shed at the end of the
pier. Ann is arguably the best divemaster you ever wish to have, although I
may be biased. We dive with her since our first visit and trying to make
sure she is on the island when we come. Bill, the boat owner and divemaster
runs precise operation.  Atmosphere on the boat is very easy, laid back,
full of jokes and laughter, but everything works like clockwork.
I am not writing much about the diving.  There is a lot written about
Little Cayman diving elsewhere. In our opinion it is better than anywhere
WE have been in the Caribbean, Australia, Thailand, Bali. Cayman Islands
are not cheap, but that is exactly why it is so good. You are getting what
you paid for. I just hope it stays that way for years to come.
