Our dive shop, Wateree Dive Center from Columbia, SC returned for another visit to LCBR. Flying here can sometimes be a hassle, especially coming thru Grand Cayman with a lot of construction at the airport. The dive operation is superb. Romel, Jon & April were excellent in all respects. The boats are in great condition & the diving was phenomenal with viz of 100+ each day. The hotel rooms are quite nice & the restaurant has great service & excellent food. Everything s buffet style & plentiful. The bar is really quaint but the bartenders do a wonderful job. The grounds are clean & the entire staff attitude is good. I really have no complaints at all. We look forward to returning soon.

We stayed over 4th of July in Little Cayman. We had a group of 5. It was a great vacation and I would definitely recommend diving in Little Cayman.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I found carpet to be a weird choice for a dive resort and therefore it gave us limited options to dry our stuff but overall that was okay. The water pressure was good and the air conditioner worked well. I really like the bracelet room keys.

The pool and hot tub were clean and never seemed too crowded. Plus they are located close to the bar so it is easy to get drinks.

The bar staff is wonderful. They offer quick friendly service. Tamara is very knowledgeable about all of the iguanas around the resort and took some time to share info and stories.

I loved having the wildlife refuge across the street and took some time to check out the red footed booby birds. We also took advantage of the bike rental and got to tour the island and see all of the island iguanas during the day and the crabs at night.

Now for the highlight which is of course the diving. I'll start be saying that the staff are all great. They are friendly and fun and work so hard. We primarily had Julie and Louise on our boat and loved them. They really do provide valet service. They set up your gear, clean it daily and carry it to the edge of the boat before you jump in the water. They do a thorough dive briefing before each dive. The boat rides are usually 25 - 40 minutes and the sea can vary from very calm to a little rough. There is so much to see on the dives. We saw turtles almost every day, two nurse sharks, numerous rays and so many beautiful fish. The sea life are calm and generally don't scare away from divers.

My primary complaint which is why I could not give 5 stars is just the group sizes of the dives. We had 18 divers on our boat and that was also the group size of the dives. There are only two staff on the boat. There were dives where I never even saw the dive master let alone anything she was able to point out to divers. I always like that dive masters are familiar with their reef and can point out things along away that we might not see on our own as well as generally guide the dive but that is just not practice with 18 divers and one dive master in a group. In our extensive experience of diving, I have never experienced such big groups. Even when the boats were that full they usually broke the divers into groups of around 6. The other people in our group were also put off by this.

Thank you for your review and visit, Naturetravelers. We're happy that mostly you were satisfied. Our style of diving is different than you will experience anywhere, because we do NOT make you stay with the dive guide, because everyone is certified and without current - it's really easy to navigate underwater especially when near a wall. You keep it on the same shoulder away from the boat and back toward the boat.

Our staff is supposed to explain that you are free to explore on your own, and generally ask divers wanting to follow the guide to go in last. That makes it less confusing for everyone. And normally by the end of a week - there aren't many left following because everyone feels empowered and comfortable on their own with their buddy, of course.

You were there during an extremely busy time - June, July, and spring break periods are when we are busiest. So try coming back at a different time for a different experience.

Not meant to be extravagant but truly 'island classy' with top notch (in the world) staff and great equipment, boats, rooms and smiles!!!! The dive sites are unequivocally The Best within a comfortable air flight from the US. If food is important to you, you are 'home' with variety and taste. When the sun goes down, head to the bar for your favorite and bring your camera... You'll understand when you get there!

(Website ratings buttons didn't work--service, cleanliness, and value = all 5's)

Room tip: Oceanfront room view is gorgeous!

Great food, the pool-side rooms are very comfortable with plenty of room. The staff is absolutely the best I have ever encountered at a dive resort. The diving is fantastic - well worth every penny! Even when the resort is full, it does not seem crowded.
Highly recommend this place.

Room tip: The area is quiet except around the bar on theme nights, but they close that down at 10 pm so really not an issue.

Really well organized & knowledgable dive boat crews and on-shore staff, nice boats, very good food, and of course to top it off, the charming Tamara and skilled Rafi at the bar. We spent a week, 3 dives per day, super relaxing, great diving, just a great time.

Definitely want to go back soon!

Room tip: Ocean view is nice, but as far as I know the rooms are all good - no-one in our dive party of 46 had a negative comment.

We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves, Mark T! We're very selective in hiring our staff, because we want to make every guest's experiences memorable. We think they're great but we and they always enjoy hearing from those who have stayed with us that their efforts have met expectations. We hope you will come back again!
