Comments Generally, we liked the Little Cayman Beach Resort. However, we wish we had known (1) they say they have WiFi and they do. But it's not very good. And they tell you that when you arrive. (2) When they have groups, the people often congregate at the bar. And some make a lot of noise. And since the rooms surround the bar, this could interfere with an early-to-bed, especially on a weekend. (3) They normally have 18-20 people on a boat and only one dive master for all of them. So you don't get much attention and it's not always easy to follow the dive master or get his/her attention if you need it. This is not only a safety issue, but if you just want to be led around, it could be hard. (However, there aren't many people on the afternoon dive so that was the best time to go.) (4) During the dive briefing, they tell you not to touch/pickup anything but our dive masters were petting a grouper, handling critters (e.g., sand dollar), disturbing and relocating worms, using their pointers to dig things up in the sand, holding the coral, etc. (5) Everyone's food tastes are different so I am not sure it's fair to comment. Assuming it is, we thought the food was spiced to a point you couldn't always taste the meat, poultry or fish, the steamed vegetables were overly bland and the desserts had too much sugar. But they put out a ton of food at each meal with lots of choices. We wore a 5mm wetsuit but some divers were in just a bathing suit. We saw lots of rays (sting and eagle) . The diving is concierge: we did not have to haul our gear, even on the boat - we sat on the stern and they brought/put the BCDs/tanks on us. Other than Bonaire and perhaps Dominica, we think this is the best diving in the Caribbean.
