We spent 9 nights and 8 days diving at LCBR the first week of April.  Prior
to our trip we carefully vetted all the dive resorts and are happy to
report we picked the best.  Unless you want to be alone- a la Marlene
Dietrich-at Southern Cross with a tiny pool, or stay in a funky cottage
(Pirates Point) LCBR is the place to Dive.  We visited all the resorts and
were exceedingly happy with our choice.  LCBR has the nicest bar area by
far (outdoors facing the beach and their large inviting pool) and is
frequented by locals as well as guests.  Southern Cross DOES have a killer
bartender, Fernando,  so be sure to visit him  for one happy hour.

LCBR food was fabulous with many choices, dining room had excellent service
and, yes, we ate too much!  I would have preferred breakfast/dinner vs. the
3 meal plan.

Most fun (other than diving) was Trivia night and Karaoke night with
dancing!  Dont go for Easter week as music/dancing are not allowed on Good
Friday in the Caymans!

Rooms  fabulous, clean, and luxurious compared to most other dive resorts
Ive visited. We had a nicely appointed oceanfront  king room complete with
fridge, safe,  and private balcony for coffee in the morning or quiet
cocktails in the evening.

Now, to the diving:  couldnt have been better.  This is the epitome of
concierge diving.  We dove the Bloody Bay wall every daysaw everything
from nurse sharks to turtles, groupers looking for a petting, eels, lobster
and lotsa fish.  Yes the entry system is tiresome and yes we almost always
went into the water first as we didnt like waiting for all divers to be
assisted with their tanks.  I assume this to be for safety reasons. Frankly
most of the divers we were with were over 50 and, shall I say a bit out of
shape?   My only criticism would be that beginning divers would need to
wait in the water for the divemaster (always last in the water) and we were
almost always ahead of the pack, doing our own we missed some of
the things the DM might have pointed out.  There was no babysitting on
these boats.

Quality of dive staff was excellent, and we never touched our equipment
save wetsuits/mask/fins after the first morning.  We did 20 dives but could
have taken maybe 4 or 5 more during our visit.  

There were lots of photographers who seemed happy with their results and we
were gifted a fabulous video from one of them at the end of our trip.

We rode bikes one afternoon around the island, and visited the Research
facility where they are working on eradicating the ravenous lionfish from
local waters.

All in all my perfect dive vacation.
