I have been diving in Grand Cayman several times, but this was my first
time in Little Cayman.  My husband and I considered Pirate's Point and the
Southern Cross Club, but selected Little Cayman Beach Resort and Reef
Divers (the house dive operation) for several reasons:  wanted to dive
three dives a day, value of package, recommendations from other
undercurrent divers and the dive operation.

If your partner does not dive, Little Cayman is not the place for you. 
There is really nothing to do, except lounge by the pool or in a hammock. 
There is no shopping, fine dining, exciting nightlife.  There is a spa
across the street.

The rooms have all been recently renovated and it showed.  We stayed in an
ocean front room, room 305.  This was an upper level unit and the room had
cathedral ceilings, making the room seem much larger.  I knew the rooms had
been renovated, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice everything was. 
Premium toiletries provided (soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and
lotion).  Our view was worth the extra price.  We also had a outdoor

You place your gear bag outside your room the first day and the staff
brings it onboard for you.  The entire week, your BC and reg stay on the
boat.  You can rinse your wetsuit, booties, etc. and hang them in a drying
facility just off the dock.  So, you are not lugging your gear back and
forth to your room all week.  So, if you hesitate to get a second floor
room, no worries.

Even in 86 degree water, I tend to get cold.  I dove with a fleece lined
dive skin and a vest underneath.  I also wore a Caribbean dive cap.  My
husband alternated between a shortie or a swimsuit and rash guard.

Sharon and Ben were our dive crew for the week.  They were outstanding. 
Everyone on staff was friendly and fun to be around.

Three meals a day in the same dining room, with the same staff and the same
guests never got boring.  There was a great selection that changed daily. 
The food was delicious.

The diving was outstanding.  New divers and experienced divers a like have
plenty to explore.  We went to two brand new dive sites, which was fun.  It
is not very often your dive master is diving the site for the first time,
right along with you.

Free WiFi was provided in the rate.  The signal was strong and I had no

The beach is lovely, complete with lounge chairs and hammocks.  It is not a
swimmable beach though.  There is a lot of turtle grass you would have to
swim past before you get to a sandy bottom and turquoise water.

Before we boarded the plane to go home, my husband wanted to know when we
would be coming back.  Very soon I hope!

Schedule for the week:  on the boat by 8:10 am, two dives in the morning. 
First dive 110' for 50 minutes, second dive 60' for 60 minutes.  Back for
lunch between 11:30 and noon.  Lunch.  On the boat 1:50 for afternoon dive,
60' for 60 minutes.  Back between 4:00 and 4:30 pm.  Rinse and dry gear. 
Relax by the pool.  Cocktail.  Shower and change for dinner.  Cocktail on
the patio.  Lights out.
