Comments Wireless internet access, satillite phones in room, cable tv, spa, weight room, sports complex,and related amenities. You won't find them here. And that's the point. What you will find is an extraordinary vacation. Small resort, excellent food, genuinely nice people (many of whom return every year) and an attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, dive staff that goes out of its way,to make the experience fun and safe. This was our fourth visit in three years and we already have reservations for next july. Very pretty, restful setting. Ten cabins, not new but well maintained and very clean. Gladys Howard (prop) is an extraordinary host and gourmet cook. Chef Cam seems in a much better frame of mind since chef Diane (her deserts are to die for) arrived, and, if anything the food was even better this year. 42 foot boat, well maintained. Gay, Coco and Martha know evey inch of these waters and go out of their way to find the best spots. Requested sites are accomadated when possible. Can dive own profile subject to Cayman Rules (100/60). One two tank dive/day.
