Ocean Frontiers was exactly as advertised in your news letter. They were
perfect. The facilities were excellent but the staff is what makes them
outstanding.Every single person we interacted with went out of there way to
be helpful and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a good
time. They were receptive to requests for dive sites and seemed as excited
as the guests after good dives. We stayed in the East End of Grand Cayman
at the Royal Reef Resort which is a top of the line Time Share.The reefs
were in excellent condition, as good as any we've seen in the Carribean
including the Belize Atolls.Good walls, a few sharks and Eagle Rays. What I
really enjoyed were the shallow dives where the topography included
canyons, numerous swim throughs and small caverns filled with silversides.
Very satisfying diving compared to the reef devastation we've seen in other
parts of the Carribean such as Honduras. The resort was beautiful, setting,
grounds and buildings.Problem was the rooms were only cleaned on Sat and
Wed unless you wanted to pay $50 extra per cleaning. At one point we asked
for clean sheets and they just dropped them off at the room instaed of
changing them. Divers had to eat breakfast at the room as breakfast (served
next door at Morritts) started too late. This actually worked out well and
we came to like having breakfast on our porch.Food in Grand Cayman is
outrageously expensive though of gourmet quality (Portofinos and The
Lighthouse)You need a car at the East End which is 45 min from
Georgetown.Highly recommend the less crowded East End and Ocean Frontiers
