Cobalt Coast - The resort is as advertised. We had a 2br unit ocean view on
the 2nd floor. Room was clean, furniture was in good condition, and A/C in
all the rooms with ceiling fans. The week we visited the day time temp was
in the 90s with humidity so the rooms were a welcome break from the heat.
The rooms had a refrigerator and sink, but no microwave.

My son and I have been to Cobalt Coast twice and used DiveTech. We dived as
a buddy pair without the guide on all our AM dives. Our run times were in
the mid-60s minutes and nobody ever said a word. I would be surprised if
that has changed but it's possible. 

Shore dives at the resort and at Lighthouse point were generally very good.
DiveTech offers several interesting PM options such as the West Bay
Express, a DPV dive from the resort to Lighthouse Point, and the Rebreather
Experience, a humbling but fun half day.

After 10 trips to Grand Cayman, Cobalt Coast/DiveTech is my 2nd favorite
combo after Compass Point/Ocean Frontiers. There are many fine operators to
choose from if you stay elsewhere on SMB or West Bay
