Great dive operation. Ann, Tim, and Dave are a lot of fun, very
knowledgeable, and run a friendly and professional operation. Plus Dave is
an accomplished lionfish hunter!  They take the time to ascertain your
experience level and when you last dove so they know how much of an eye to
keep on you.  You can choose to go with the divemaster or head off on your
own.  I was fortunate enough to buddy up with a very experienced diver with
great eyes.  She not only got my buoyancy right (rental BCD) but found more
stuff than anyone else on the boat.  Although I was the least experienced
diver on the boat, I never felt like the odd man out.
Valet dive service from day one.  Big drying shed and two rinse tanks at
dock (They use the dock at Little Cayman Beach Resort - Conch Club drives
you back and forth).  Well equipped dive shop (Reef Divers) at dock.  Great
boat (the Sea-esta) with two fresh water sprayers, very easy entry (they
bring your BCD/tank to you as you're seated with fins on), OK snacks (heavy
on the salt, which I like), plenty of room.

They are almost always the first boat out, so they get the pick of the dive

Paradise Villas was very nice.  Wonderful staff, especially Emma and the
two Michelles (one at the Hungry Iguana and the other is the housekeeper). 
Accomodations were private, spacious enough, and relaxing.  Tip: Don't run
the AC at night.  Just open the windows and let the breeze come through. 
And you also get the sound of the ocean!

Don't come here if you have to be around lots of people or be constantly
This is the place if you really want to get away and still have (almost)
all the comforts.
