Cayman Brac has some great walls and good reefs.  Unfortunately the Divi
staff would return to the same dive sites numerous times, did not do the
walls, and kept to shallow reef dives.  Even with a boat load of
experienced divers with computers.  The dive crews were top notch, Carey
and Suzy were terrific and the boats and equipment were good.  I was just
disappointed that we didn't see some variety and some of the Brac's walls. 
Unfortunately we stayed in the time shares and they are not on the path of
the maintenance people.  They are in very bad condition, fans that don't
work, light switches that don't work, sliding walls that don't slide etc. 
You need to get real familiar with your towel because you will use the same
one all week long, there is no maid service.  You will also get to know
your trash, it will be there all week. The redeeming quality is the food,
it is excellent and so out of character with the facilities of Divi Tiara. 
You should dive Cayman Brac but not with Divi Tiara
