Comments We stayed at Sunset House following a week on the Cayman Aggressor. In a word, everything was great. Had a ground floor oceanview room, very comfortable, small fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Tons of space in the room and nice size bathroom. Low season so only a half dozen people on the boat. Went with Sunset Divers to the north 2 days where we had very nice dives and remaining days closer to home. Nice to see some sharks and large groupers and of course, tons of turtles. Other than that, the usual assortment of reef fish. Only did 1 dive from the shore but looking forward to doing more next time. But coming off the Aggressor after a week of 4 to 5 dives a day, we were relaxing a little more at Sunset. Had our 3mm suits with us but water so warm we didn't bother. Staff at both hotel and dive shop very helpful and friendly, nice pool, breakfast is in the restaurant and service was quick and no problem making the boat, even on the days we left a little early for the north. My Bar was usually hopping and we usually ate lunch there but had a car and went to Georgetown for dinner. If you go, please take a couple of treats for Murphy, the nicest Springer Spaniel you'll ever meet!

Love to see a review from you on the Cayman Aggressor trip, since some recent reviews indicated boat wasn't too great.

There were a couple of cabins (I think 5 and 7) that are problems with odors and/or air conditioning and crew did their best to resolve however sooner rather than later, I think the plan is to renovate or replace the IV with the V. It's time and I'm pretty certain the Aggressor folks would agree. We were in cabin 1 and it was fine.
