Comments Went with a group of 25 and the resort didn't even blink at that number. The food is buffet style for every meal and as everyone else has said, the food is very good and very, very plentiful. The food staff were fantastic. We had tuff weather for the first day and a half but then the seas laid down and Jackson's and Bloody Bay were fantastic (for Caribbean). Each day the visibility got better and better, able to go the the extreme east end for a great deep dive. The dive staff is good, we had the guys and the other half of us had all the women. I still feel Little Cayman is the best of the Caribbean. Lots of friendly turtles, one of our group unfortunately didn't listen to the dive staff and grabbed a turtle and it quickly swam away. otherwise, if you observe them, they swim right up to you and will even open their mouth and hit your dome port, very fun! The corals were healthy, no real signs of the Hurricases last year. Good assortment of the Caribbean reef fish but quite varied, just great!
Overall, A great Caribbean trip with great water and great resort.
