Brac Beach Reef Resort is a great value, but flights getting to Cayman Brac
from Grand Cayman can be limited. Most flights are small commuter planes,
so make sure your checked luggage is not overweight.

The rooms at the resort are basic, but clean and roomy. The grounds are
very nice, with a pool, hot-tub, tennis courts, large beach area with many
hammocks, and a large dock. It's very easy to find a quiet spot on the
beach to be alone. The food at the resort is excellent. Even though it's
buffett style, the food was fresh, hot and different selections each day. 

The dive operation was fantastic. Valet style diving, with the divemasters
catering to you. They setup your gear on day one and you don't have to
touch it again until the last day. You leave your BC and reg on the boat
and the divemasters rinse it each day. The divemasters were very friendly,
outgoing, and helpful. Great dive site descriptions. They are the last ones
into the the water and the first ones out, so they can help the divers in
and out. You can dive your own profile, or have the divemasters guide you.
However, they are only in the water for about 25 mins. When they head to
the boat, you and your buddy can continue diving.

The diving was very nice, but the fish life seems to be down a bit. The
coral looked heathly, but you can see some damage from Hurricane Ivan. On
our last day we saw a large Hammerhead shark, which is rare in the Caymans.
Lobsters were abundant and we saw several turtles and moral eels. The water
temp was warm for January, around 80 - 81. The weather was very nice,
mostly sunny days with only a little rain in the morning of one or two
days. Highs in the mid 80's and low in the mid 70's. Most dive sites are
close to the resort, only about a 10-15 minute boat ride.

Overall I think the Brac Beach Reef Resort is a great value. Staying on
Grand Cayman can be more expensive and I think diving is better on the
sister islands. The staff of both the resort and the dive operation were
fantastic. For an all-inlusive, I was very impressed with the food. I would
definetly go back, hopefully soon!
