Comments We were very pleasantly surprised by the accommodations, food, and service at Little Cayman Beach Resort.
The pool side room (2nd floor) was large, clean, and well appointed. No complaints about the rooms at all from our group of about 20 divers, however, a night time reading light would be handy, as their bedside lights are low wattage fluorescents. Another improvement would be to upgrade their Wi-Fi, which is sketchy, at best.
The food was buffet style and it was spectacular. Stone crab, rack of lamb, steak, fish, and a large salad selection was above and beyond. The dessert table held at least five different desserts, all homemade. We couldn't believe they could put out three buffets each day of such quality when they get their supplies once a week off a barge coming from Grand Cayman.
The on site bar is small and friendly. Two TVs with good reception, and a real funky feel to this pool side libation station. Beer is $5 and "specialty" cocktails are $10. A small liquor store is within walking distance. 6 pack of Red Stripe is $15.
Reef Divers is the dive shop on site. Staffed by several friendly, fairly young dive enthusiasts, each boat left on time every morning. The "valet" diving was nice for those of us with aching backs. The guides were courteous, knowledgeable, and had a sense of humor. The boats were comfortable for about 15 divers. Our group of 20 was split into two groups, so there was a lot of room for everyone. The divemasters carry your gear to you as you sit on the stern, you strap in, and begin diving. You may choose to accompany the guide, or explore on your own. 1st dive 50 minutes, second dive 60 minutes.
Not many large pelagics, but lots of schooling fish. Typical dive would set you in at 40' and a 100 yd. swim brings you to the wall. Basically, you can enjoy these dives at 40 ft. or 100 ft. or anything in between.
In all, we would go back in a heartbeat! Check this place out, and visit their sister resorts Cayman Brac Beach Resort and Cobalt on Grand Cayman.
