Comments This is a resort that prides itself on service resulting in lots of return divers. The dive location is legendary - loaded with corals, fishes, turtles, sharks with occasional spectacular sightings like whale sharks, hammerheads etc. Interestingly, there is no thermocline, so the water is comfortable top to bottom. If you're there when conditions are calm, visibility is excellent. The island has at this writing about 170 people living there and thus has the absolute charm of no concerns about theft or safety. There is a well stocked general store, liquor store, very professional health clinic (which I can attest to having needed their services), a restaurant and a smattering of shopping. The resort includes all meals (really very good) and beach equipmen ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

We just came back from Southern Cross, and I agree wholeheartedly with this review. Very accurate and covers all the bases.

We were there in 2014 and are headed back this January. Great place and some of the best or maybe the best diving in the Caribbean. I understand they are just now redoing the pool including adding a depth of ten feet. Great staff which really makes a difference.

The three dive option is a definite advantage over other resorts on Little Cayman.
