Comments This was our 6th visit to the Southern Cross Club (SCC). Our last visit was November of 2007.
There have been some very nice renovations and upgrades to the facility, and old favorites that make SCC feel like a club are still there.
After 10 years, the entire staff greats you by name, everyday. They remember details such as what you ordered for breakfast the day before and inquire if you'd like the same or something different. They go out of their way to ensure you feel like you are part of the "club." Absolutely, hands down, still my favorite resort in the whole of the Caribbean.
The diving, still awesome on Bloody Bay Wall. The resort has a brand new Newton 36 dive boat which was purchased and delivered in August 2017. Their second boat was purchased sometime in the past 10 years. Just plain down excellent dive boats, dive guides, and dive operation. Like the rest of the staff, they call you by name, everyday, every dive, and are very adept at matching dive experience with groups and dive sites. This dive operation is again, one of my top favorites in the entire Caribbean.
