Flying home after 8 day stay at LCBR. This was our second trip, our last being a year ago. Our trip last year was so awesome we wanted to do it again. Needless to say it did not disappoint! Clive warmly welcomed us at the airport and delivered us to LCBR. We were welcomed

And we are excited for you to come back, too, jodilprince, to see our new diving room which is scheduled to be completed by end of this month (February 2019). We love having repeat guests who help us ensure that we maintain the same high level of services from year to year. And thanks for naming some of our great staff members at the resrot and Reef Divers. We think they're awesome, but it's always great to know that guests recognize as well. Thank you for choosing us a second time and for taking the time to publish a review. We will look forward to visit #3!

Came here with a group for a dive vacation and I highly recommend it. Some key highlights: - the service is outstanding. Everyone is helpful and a lot of fun! - the dive service and equipment are top notch. Note I brought my own gear so I am referring to the boats,

Thank you, U7570OEkellyt, for visiting our resort and taking the time to post a review. As you've noted, we are primarily a dive resort and try to warn non-diving partners that they need to either be okay with just chilling or be ablet to self-entertain. We'd love to see you come back again after our new diving room and giant outdoor, screened diving paviollion are completed sometime next month.

From the transfers at the airport, ocean front room, food, dive operation, staff...they were all excellent! The resort was full and one day my husbands dive boots were missing from the drying room. We thought it was a mix up, but turns out it was their first theft. There were a

Thanks for visiting our resort and taking the time to provide a review, dnottelmann. We're happy you enjoyed yourselves and hope that you understand our bar and bar activities are NOT just for those consuming adult beverages. But then with a beautiful beach and hammocks, we're sure you found other places to rest, relax, and just enjoy watching the stars come out at night. We're pleased you will be back and will look forward to welcoming you to your Little Cayman "home."

Enjoyed every minute of our stay at this wonderful resort. We are not divers so when other guests were off diving, we felt as if we were on our own private island in our own private hotel. Our room (103) was spacious and comfortable with everything you could possibly want or

We thank you for your visit and your review, Kay M. We're sorry you found breakfast food to be cooler than expected. We suspect it's becasue of our dining room renovations. Instead of the kitchen being right off the dining room - it's half a resort away. We should be done with our renovations sometime in February and have a beautiful new dining room with its own bar and new outdoor dining area completed. We will look forward to seeing you again.

I'll start with the caveat that we spent our first week in Grand Cayman with the intention of shore diving for the week and relaxing in our rented condo. Heavy winds thwarted most of that as most the dives were closed. Our disposition was mixed heading to Little Cayman. Upon

We thank you for your visit, Hal M - and we miss you too! You make us very happy that you enjuoyed yourselves and found everyting meeting or exceeding your expectations. As a quick note, our dive service and style are what we always use - that guests can choose to follow or go off on their own. Sometimes newer divers or ones being told to ALWAYS follow the divemaster have initial concerns. But our belief is that with empowering our guests, we are helping them improve their skills and become better divers. And we find that as the week goes on, fewer divers actually follow the guide because they love the freedom to do it themselves. We're sorry that bar service was slow and have passed it along to our manager. Not sure if this was because it was a busy time, we were understaffed due to illness or a vacant position, or some of both. We esepecially appreciate you taking the time to write sucha complete review. We will look forward welcoming you back home to us when you return.

I don’t recall seeing any DIN valves, but I’d call them and ask. They are very helpful. It is a top notch operation.

We're making our dining room almost twice as big. So now we are serving in our conference room. We expect the renovations to be completely done sometime in January if not sooner.

Our shuttle can pick you up at the airport. If you're on an accommodations/meal/dive package - it's normally included. We ask you to tell us what time you are scheduled to arrive and depart so we can plan. But when the plane comes over the resort - our driver heads there.

The oceanfront rooms are larger but also come at a higher price.

We don't do trips just for snorkelers, but you can go out on our dive boats an snorkel from the dive moorings where we tie up. In general, moorings are in relatively shallow water around Little Cayman. So it's easy to get in and swim toward shore where the water is shallower and the reefs are near the surface. There is no in-water guide and you'd need to bring or rent your own gear. Our morning boats go out for 2 dives (about 4 hours) and our afternoon dives go our for 1 dive (about 2 hours). Snorkelers are accommodated if space is available. So we suggest checking with our dive shop to confirm we have space a day or two before.

"If you want quiet, take the top floor and you won't hear the people walking overhead, but you will have stairs to go up. No elevators."
"Room 103 quiet, well appointed, near bar, restaurant and pool"
"King beds are not a given...you might check for ocean view rooms, they seem to be bigger"
"Avoid room near entrance as the noise starting at 6:30am of staff rolling equipment down to the diving pier is not pleasant."
"Go for ocean view - they have an amazing sunrise!!"
