Comments I hadn't dove Grand Cayman since 2000 & once again wanted to stay @ Sunset House because of the outstanding shore diving. Sunset House & Sunset Divers did not disappoint - the dive operation is well-run w/ lots of friendly folks & good rental gear. The dive boats are roomy w/ covered areas & helpful attendants / divemasters.

The 'ocean view' rooms open onto the shoreline, provide good privacy & are within easy walking distance to the 'ocean pool' for shore diving.

The reefs appear to be in good shape & the diving is easy since there are virtually no currents.

Grand Cayman is not the cheapest place you can visit in the Caribbean, but the stay @ Sunset House & the easy diving make it worth paying a bit more.

Sunset House also has a good on-site restaurant & ocean-front bar to complete the scene...............wifi is available throughout.
