Our trip to Little Cayman and Little Cayman Beach resort was excellent. 
This was our 4th trip in 9 years of diving. 

Saw spotted eagle rays, southern sting rays, reef sharks, nurse sharks,
many, many turtles, squid, Goliath Grouper, lobsters, conch, and all the
usual assortment of reef fishes and corals.  One odd thing that stood out
to me for some reason, was the lack of healthy looking sea cucumbersI saw
very few and they looked distressed.  I saw one tiny stand of stag horn
coral and it was bleached solid white.

The seas were calm, flat, warm and perfect  although visibility was
somewhat diminished. We had current once, one dive.  

The dive shop has been expanded a bit, the dock has been rebuilt and much
larger and is very nice.  The boats were superb and roomy as normal.  The
gear drying area has been improved and expanded a bit.  Our ocean front
room was quiet, clean, well appointed exactly what we expected  given that
it is hotel room.   The grounds were neat, clean and well kept. 

A new Chef is in charge of the kitchen whom did a nice job.  We felt that
breakfast was good, lunch had declined in selection and variety somewhat,
and dinner had slightly improved  but the desert selection and quality at
dinner had declined somewhat. The rum punch party was definitely scaled
back in terms of things to nibble.  

The most significant negative we noticed on the entire trip, as did many
other people, was the increase of alga on the reefs  including the wall. 
Im no expert, but in my opinion it is becoming a very serious problem and
is definitely having a significant and negative impact on the sea life,
reefs and diving.  One woman was so upset with the alga on one part of the
wall, she turned around and went back toward the boat.  She said something
to the effect of The alga is so thick and its so upsetting to me I dont
want to even look.

The most significant positive (outside of good dives) were some of the
staff.  Ron and Adrian on our boat were fantastic, helpful, fun and very
accommodating.  Many new faces at the resort and on the boats.
