Comments Resort is dated, but upgrades are underway. Service in all aspects of visit was superior and friendly. Dive operation is well run and we were pampered by young and helpful dive staff from NZ. Olivia is exceptionally enthusiastic about small critters and life cycles.

Boat was familiar from prior experience at sister resort on Little Cayman. Camera facilities adequate but not great. Their valet diving model means your BC is brought to your seat on the fantail and water entry is easy. Dive staff assists water exit, ensuring safety.

The only thing I wish I known beforehand was that that cruise ship traffic has turned downtown Georgetown into a clone of every other cruise ship port in the Caribbean - not worth the incredibly cheap public bus fare.
