Comments Cayman Brac Reef Resort has become my favorite Caribbean destination. The diving is Cayman good - and with concierge diving for all - it is effortless. When you arrive, you put your gear in a net bag that they provide, put it outside your room, and the next morning it is on your tank on your designated boat. The dive staff is fabulous! Special shoutout to Barb who goes out of her way to really help everyone, but there are no complaints on any of the staff. You don't have to touch your gear until you are ready to go home. Nitrox fills were full and right on 32%.

The rooms are quite nice with good amenities. However, the very best amenity is to sit outside your room, with your cup of coffee and watch the truly spectacular sunrises. The beach and pool area are quite picturesque. Lots of photo opportunities here. Only improvement would be some protection from the sun around the pool.

The food is unexpectedly terrific. It is all-inclusive (not much else in the way of food on the Brac anyway), and my expectations for food at an all inclusive is to hope for average. But this place goes all the way in with wonderful, varied and plentiful food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even the most picky eater will find something at every meal.

I've made 2 trips to the CBRR and plan on returning frequently.
