Comments Our second visit here in as many years. The operation continues to impress. I don't have much to add substance wise to my previous review, but thought I would contribute my findings regarding the weather. We experienced what appear to have been fairly typical early spring conditions -- some choppiness and winds, occasional calm, and viz that was "ok" by Little Cayman standards (and very very good by mine). As was true last year, we ended up diving the south side due to winds on one of our six days. I was told that in the summer, the water tends to be flat and the viz is extremely good -- the one downside is that the place gets hot. The oceanfront rooms are generally larger and superior to the non-oceanfront rooms, but they lack AC, so that's something to consider if you're booking that time of year.
