Review of Brac Reef Resort in Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands

Diving Bloody Bay Wall, LIttle Cayman, Cayman Islands

We went to Brac Reef Resort on Cayman Brac in the Cayman Islands in Sept. 2008. There had been a hurricane about 10 days before we arrived, so they were still doing some clean up on the beach but it was beautiful.


The diving there is "valet". You never lift a tank the entire time you are there. They assemble, store, and rinse your gear for you, and when it's time to dive, just sit on the back of the boat and your gear is put on your back.

Dive sites are all around the small island, so boat trip is usually 10-20 minutes.

We did go to Little Cayman to dive Bloody Bay Wall, which was awesome (as I saw someone else had reported on this site). Very cool.

There are so many dive sites we didn't get to see nearly enough of them, so can't wait to go back.

Unfortunately, the resort was hit by Hurricane Paloma in November 2008 and has closed until later this year, promising to be better than ever. Knowing them, they will.

The resort is all inclusive and the food was absolutely wonderful and service was top quality. We had three meals a day and two dives a day, and could have had 4 dives (we will take this option next trip!).

The resort is small enough to be very personal but large enough to have everything you could want. It's mostly all divers, so pretty quiet during the day with some activities in the evenings.

The island has some caves to explore, some native birds to watch, but not much else to do. We did not rent a car, as it is not needed there; the resort has bikes and we rode to the store and did a little sight seeing.

Dive shop is PADI and dive crews were all knowledgeable and safety minded which we, as fairly new divers, appreciated greatly.

Brac is our instructor's favorite dive resort and he and his wife have been to a lot of places, so we chose it for our first Caribbean trip.

Now we're spoiled and don't know where else we could go and be so completely, all around satisfied.
