This was our second trip to Brac Reef, first since the hurricane.  The
rebuild is very nice and the rooms are new and nicely furnished.  They are
small.  Internet was good and realible.  The new bar is great.  Food was
excellent.  Surprisingly good! Trudy, the manager, does a good job and her
people seem to like what they do and they treat you well.  According to my
wife and daughter, the spa is very nice too.
Reef Divers I believe is one of, if not the best, dive operators we have
dove with.  They are fun and very good and safety driven.  Their briefings
are the best and are accurate.  We dove with several DM's during our stay
and my daughter did her Jr. AOW (13) with Beccy and Beccy was wonderful to
her.  Had a hard time getting her to dive with me when she finished up.
Mick, the manager, is very involved which is nice.  He dove with us a
couple of days, so he doesn't just sit in the shop! We also had Barbie, BJ,
and Ian for different periods during the week.  Loved them all!
The diving on the Brac is good and different from LC.  Water vis is
excellent, especailly on the deeper sites.  We did a south side wall, which
was impressive.  Most dives were done on the north side due to early spring
winds during our stay.  The Loin Fish is common, but not near as common as
other places we have been in the past few years.  Their early attack on
them seems to be paying off, at least on their dive sites. While the
grouper and sharks will follow the DM in hopes of scoring a free meal,
there isn't any evidence yet that they are eating them on their own at this
time.  But they do seem to like them when served up on a stick!  
I do recommend these guys, both Reef Divers and Brac Reef resort. The
Cayman's are expensive, but they are a good value for what you get and
pretty accessible too.
