Comments Cobalt Coast - The resort is as advertised. We had a 2br unit ocean view on the 2nd floor. Room was clean, furniture was in good condition, and A/C in all the rooms with ceiling fans. The week we visited the day time temp was in the 90s with humidity so the rooms were a welcome break from the heat. The rooms had a refrigerator and sink, but no microwave.

Cobalt Coast is in the west bay area so you are outside of the 7 mile beach area, but with a car you can get to 7 mile beach in 10 minutes. We were happy to have the car to visit other area of Grand Cayman due to the limited options outside of the Cobalt Coast resort.

My son and I have been to Cobalt Coast twice and used DiveTech. We dived as a buddy pair without the guide on all our AM dives. Our run times were in the mid-60s minutes and nobody ever said a word. I would be surprised if that has changed but it's possible. Shore dives at the resort and at Lighthouse point were generally very good. DiveTech offers several interesting PM options such as the West Bay Express, a DPV dive from the resort to Lighthouse Point, and the Rebreather Experience, a humbling but fun half day. After 10 trips to Grand Cayman, Cobalt Coast/DiveTech is my 2nd favorite combo after Compass Point/Ocean Frontiers. There are many fine operators to choose from if you stay elsewhere on SMB or West Bay
