[None]This island is very laid back and the people are very nice. No need
to overpack as everything is casual. Do bring at least 1 sweatshirt as it
can get cool at night. We stayed in the condos. There are 2 condo
buildings, one is under renovation. They are 1 bedroom with a wrap around
enclosed porch as a 2nd bedroom and kitchen, quite nice for hearing the
ocean at night. Condos are about 100 yards from resort which is nice for
quiet and privacy. I cant say enough about the staff here, Max the manager
greeted us the first day in to make sure we had everything we needed. We
needed to stock up on groceries and one of the staff drove us to the store
and waited for us! We had 2 5year olds with us, so we were often showing up
at the last minute for restaurant hours and they were great about it. They
even called our room a couple of times when we did not eat there to make
sure they did not close on us. Beach was well kept, but not a good swimming
beach. Pool was nice and clean, we were practically the only ones using it.
The food was fantastic, some kind of carved roast every night, or grilled
steak, crab legs, fish all good. Dive staff was nice and did good
briefings, diving was very good although it was very rough with 6' waves at
times. We did get over to little Cayman and dove bloody bay, which was
amazing, very pristine. The reef are in great shape here with lots of coral
and sponge life. Fish population was average, few moorays although I did
photograph a 3" baby mooray. We saw several hawksbill turtles, lettuce
leaf nudibrancs, a few stingrays and one eagle ray. The wreck of the 356 is
a must see ( a russian Frigate) with 2 gun turrets intact. I also
reccommend the Tarpon dive, great for photo's as they let us get close and
the sight had lots of mini canyons and ledges to explore. We will return
here again for sure!
