Comments Mostly all good. The reefs are better than recent years. Very few lion fish, well down from recent years. Fish population and variety about as good as I am aware of in the Caribbean in recent years. Diving, of course is mostly in marine park areas in Little Cayman, so this is an advantage.

The resort is first class in every way, food great and plentiful, accommodations very nice, etc.

For those seeking night life, partying, etc., Little Cayman is not the place to go. But for peace, quiet and good food and diving, hard to beat.

Side note. In Sept. the other 3 main dive resorts on Little Cayman are closed (Pirate's Point, Southern Cross and Paradise Villas. Thus, the island, flights and dive sights might be a bit more crowded at other times of the year.
