Brac Reef Resort is well-kept and offers nice rooms, a large pool and hot
tub, a two-story dock with hammocks, tennis court, and good sized beach. 
Meals are served buffet style in a central hall.  The food was consistently
good to excellent.  There is a small bar and if you are on a "drinks
included" plan check out the rules early on.  Wifi is available in the
office and reaches some rooms and the bar area.  They have a relatively
large and well stocked dive shop if you forget anything.  Diving is done on
custom Newtons and the crew handles everything but wetsuits and cameras. 
We had our group of 14 plus up to 6 extra on our boat and were very
comfortable.  The diving was better than average Caribbean diving and we
made one trip to Bloody Bay Wall on Little Cayman.  You can dive your own
profile or follow the DM who will point out critters.  Our DMs Ken and
Barbie (really) were outstanding and kept us laughing and having a great
time the entire week.  They did great briefings but were serious about
check-ins and check-outs.  Three boat dives a day are offered with an
optional night dive once or twice a week.  Nitrox is available and you
analyze your own tanks at the dive shop.  There is no shore diving from the
resort.  We rented a van and did several shore dives both in the afternoon
and at night.  Radar Reef was an easy shore dive off a concrete boat launch
and several night dives there provided octopi, squid, hunting eels and
rays, slipper and caribbean lobsters and all the usual night-time suspects.
 Air tanks are available at the resort for no extra charge.  Having a van
also allowed us to explore the island, visiting bat caves and a bird
reserve.  One of our group did some flyfishing right in front of and near
the resort and hooked several bonefish.  With no shopping or night-life,
Brac Reef Resort is a great peaceful getaway for those who want quiet time,
good accomodations and food, and easy, better than average Caribbean
