We went to Cayman Brac Reef Resort a couple of years ago.  The people running it were great and Reef Divers were great too.  The rooms were mediocre at best.  The food was good.  It was a good time.  One problem we had was that it was just before Christmas and our luggage took a back seat to the locals going shopping in Miami with all their Christmas gifts they had purchased.  We did not get our luggage for 3 days but the resort and dive operation gave us equipment to use to go diving.

Hi abt1640,

Last time I was at LCBR it was looking long in the tooth, so this seems some good news long as it's not underway when you're planning on going in Jan '09:

"Little Cayman Beach Resort Announces Upcoming Rennovations

8/20/2008

The Little Cayman Beach Resort will undergo an extensive renovation of guestrooms beginning this Fall. The renovation, scheduled for completion by Thanksgiving, is designed to capture the authentic charm and warmth of Little Cayman while enhancing the Resort experience for guests.

The design concepts of the renovation are the creation of J. Morgan Design Associates of Greenville, North Carolina, whose diverse projects are found throughout the Southeastern United States. "Incorporating the guests’ feedback and staying true to the culture of Little Cayman and the Resort were the primary concerns of the renovation design", said Judy Morgan, the design creator. The project consists of three phases, each of which will correspond to a building of guest rooms, with the first phase scheduled to start on August 16th. Upon the completion of one building, the next phase will begin, designed with the intent of reducing any impact on the guests’ experience. "Our goal is to minimize any inconvenience and intrusion on our guests and their activities during the renovation," said Jason Belport, Little Cayman Beach Resort’s General Manager.

Each guestroom will receive a complete renovation including replacement of all flooring, wall coverings, entirely new bathroom from the floor up, and new furnishings. The design of each room is enhanced by tropical colors and Caribbean themed artwork, including pieces by Guy Harvey. Amenities for all rooms include new window treatments, ceiling fans, cabinetry, refrigerators, flat-screen televisions and beverage centers. Further upgrades and amenities are scheduled for the Oceanfront units. When asked about the guests’ feedback on the room changes, Judy Morgan answered, "Our number one goal is to remain true to the Island, as guests expressed this as their highest concern; reflecting this simplicity and uniqueness was a priority in our renovation design. The natural beauty of Little Cayman has been an inspiration for all of our selections; function and the island lifestyle have been fused together in a way that reflects the personality of this beautiful Resort."
