We have had six visits and just booked our 7th!

Small groups, great, gourmet food, and super diving and divemasters!

Room tip: Quite a variety to chose from, open on the water, rooms a little further back smaller but with AC. Your choice

It's all true! Pirates Point is truly a warm and intimate resort, relaxed and friendly, and with great food. And the all-inclusive dive package, which includes 2 dives a day, all meals and alcohol, is very good value.

Rooms are spacious, well laid out and very comfortable. There are lots of hammocks throughout the property and they're well used :-) The food is truly delicious, plentiful and varied. Fish tacos for lunch one day, Southern fried chicken for lunch another day, sushi and tuna night (the highlight) will keep you suspended in delicious anticipation for your next meal.

My husband and I have dived once a year every year for the last 10 years but we learned a few things from the dive instructors that we didn't know we didn't know. We met some really nice fellow guests during our week at Pirates Point and hope to meet up with them at some point again in the future.

The staff are welcoming and generous and they truly care about your experience at Pirates Point. You not only know them by name, but you get to know them well by the end of your stay. I felt comfortable enough, even as a first-timer, to ask for mint and limes from the kitchen and make mojitos one night!

Most guests come back year after year (we met people who'd come back the 14th time, the 10th time, the 4th time, etc., etc.) and we can see why. They make friends with other guests and the staff so going back is really like going home. Often people who've met at Pirates Point go back together. If we go back to Little Cayman, we won't consider going anywhere other than Pirates Point.

If you'd like to dive in the Caribbean, Little Cayman is probably the best place to dive. And Pirates Point is definitely the way to go! Even if you don't dive, it's a lovely place to relax, unwind and meet interesting people. A real vacation! Highly, highly recommended.

Room tip: The ocean front rooms are lovely. They have a sea view and lead directly to the beach. Though they're not air conditioned (the ones at the back have air conditioning), there are two floor fans and a ceiling fan and you can open the window shutters so there's lots of circulation to keep you cool. Even as an air-conditioning fiend, my husband was glad we chose an ocean front room,

Wow, what a trip!!! They do such a great job here. I am truly able to relax enjoy the diving and forget about the rest of the world. The diving is great not only because the dive sites are superb, but also due to the fact the staff runs a very good operation in getting you in and out of the water. They have a great boat for handling divers and they never have too many divers on the boat. you are allowed to dive as long as you like for each of the 2 dives as long as you do not go into deco and maintain at least 500 psi and on Little Cayman you want to stay down as long as you can.
The rooms are very nice and well maintained. They have a nice pool if you want to swim after your dives. They have hammocks in the shade where I seem to fall asleep every afternoon while reading. The resort is right on the shore, so you can go snorkling in the afternoon or grab a bike to ride around the island.
The dining is superb, it compares to any good restaurant in a major city. The number of guest they allow is small so by the end of the week, you feel like everyone is part of your family.
The dive staff not only handles the dives, but help with the work at the resort. You get to know each of them and they always have a good attitude and are willing to lend a friendly hand.
I always feel guilty when I leave as I never feel like I have paid them enough for everything they have done to make my vacation, truly a vacation.
This is my third trip to Pirate's and I know I will be going back again!

Room tip: get a room on the ocean to enjoy the nice ocean breeze

I heartily agree with the positive comments of other reviewers here. I could just end there, but I thought it would be helpful to add in some points not mentioned before and emphasize others.

First, Pirate’s Point is an unparalleled VALUE among Little Cayman dive resorts. It is an ALL inclusive property in a world of nickel & dime supplemental add-ons – All boat diving, all bar, all meals (including wine). – NO surprises!

The property itself is UNIQUE -- Pirate’s Point is the only dive resort on Little Cayman located right on the ocean. You can snorkel and hunt lobster by simply stepping from Pirate’s Point beach into the water.

You leave to dive at 9:00a.m., after breakfast. Lunch is served whenever you return. You dive your computer, not the chef’s lunch schedule. – You use the same boat every dive so you don’t have to swap gear, and your position, from boat to boat.

Guests always have access to the dining room before sunrise to pour fresh coffee and shuffle down to the beach to watch the glowing sun rise out of an azure sea. Ahhhhhh…
It is not unusual (every trip I’ve been on) to have a Champagne/Sushi reception in the owner’s beachfront home.

Pirate’s Point is INTIMATE – As other reviewers have mentioned, being at Pirate’s Point is almost like staying with family. And most guests develop an instant rapport with one another, like being at a neighborhood cookout.

The staff to guest ratio is outstanding. The resort holds 20 guests maximum and there are always at least 7 permanent staff members to serve you. -- You’ll think you are the ONLY one in the world they treat this good, but that’s their secret. They deliver this intimate service to ALL their guests throughout the year.

Pirate’s Point food is FRESH and 5-STAR QUALITY – Gladys Howard, Pirate’s Point impresario and owner, demands fresh vegetables, fruits and fish (personally selected by the chef from local fisherman) – special dietary requests are cheerfully accommodated. – The quality of dishes on the dinner menu is mind-blowing, and award winning. Beware of desserts, they’re rich and irresistible!

Last comment on food: I must admit that at the end of the trip I was ready for a piece of dry toast and glass of skim milk after the richness of the food at PP. But that’s OK, it’s only ONCE A YEAR!

GO before the outside world runs over this one-of-a-kind treasure -- It can’t last forever -- Should be on your bucket list!

The diving in Little Cayman is stellar; I don't need to tell you that.

Pirates Point was absolutely fantastic, exactly what I was looking for.

It is small (10 rooms), immaculately clean, and staffed by warm, welcoming folks who will go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is great. The resort is a on big sprawling compound where you never feel crowded; the staff are open and friendly and make you genuinely feel like they're happy you're there. They take amazing care of all the details, so all you have to do is sip your drink and tell another story. They teach you things you didn't know you wanted to know; they help you become a better diver. They also make you gain weight, because you never have to carry your tanks or gear or suitcases, and they feed you fresh, delicious home-style food 3 times a day.

If you are looking for bars to cruise and discos to party in all night, don't come here. If you are looking for a high-end, exclusive resort where anonymous minions silently serve you, this is not the place for you. Pirates Point is more like going to a family reunion (except in a tropical paradise): You know, complete with all the characters: the slightly deaf old aunt who plays a mean game of dominoes, the gruff uncle who just happens to be a world-class chef, assorted cousins who've come from all over the place and have fascinating life stories, and are eager to hear *your* fascinating life story.... And the guests are equally as colourful. You'll get to know everyone as you dive together, mix each other drinks in the bar before dinner, and sit down to meals at family-style tables and stuff yourselves on the incredible food that is laid before you. You'll meet people you don't want to lose touch with. You'll make plans to come back together on the same week next year. You will waddle back to the airplane with a full belly, a list of new friends, a whole bunch of amazing memories, and a smile you just can't wipe off your face.
