Description: Welcome to Grand Cayman's historic hotel for divers by divers... Scuba...
Welcome to Grand Cayman's historic hotel for divers by divers... Scuba Diving is the talk of the town here! Sunset House is the oldest hotel on Grand Cayman, started back in 1958 with the family Matriarch Ms. Hebe! The family still owns and operates this iconic dive resort today! From an array of different variety of palm trees to an amazing house reef; from 5 custom dive boats, to Cathy Church and her retail and photo school (a world famous underwater photographer); from amazing Caribbean concoctions, to spicy Indian dishes; they all await you! And combined with warm Caymanian hospitality, you'll wonder why you waited so long to visit this West Indian oasis, or why you haven't come back sooner. Of course, the Caymans and Sunset House are a diver's paradise, with crystal-clear waters awaiting your arrival. Come to Sunset House today and experience now, what others have seen for over the last 55 years. An underwater photographer's perfect dive. Shipwrecks, curious big eels, cuddly stingrays and a legendary mermaid await you just steps from your room for those staying at Sunset House!

Went for sunset three times during our vacation, and it was a terrific place to relax, and just enjoy the early evening, a few drinks, and, of course, sunset. A great place to relax at the end of the day.

Wonderful organization. Every dive master/instructor was very professional and safety oriented. The staff was wonderful to work with and my family and I had just an excellent experience.

Although we didn't dive from here or stay at the hotel, we ate and drank here plenty times. The outdoor restaurant on the ocean is the best place on the island to watch the sunset! It is insanely gorgeous, well priced, and pretty tasty. Wishing I was back there now!
