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! « less

Let me start by saying that I absolutely love Sunset House. I've dove here many times and the staff is always friendly and helpful. This time was absolutely no exception. We stayed at another resort on the East end of the island and made the trip into Sunset House only to be turned away because they were too busy and... More

Great setting overlooking the sea, helped by beautiful weather most of the time. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff are generally helpful. There is a wide selection of bar food and a good selection of drinks. Prices are about average for the island which is expensive. The food is good but the portion sizes could increase maybe a little.

Well, Cayman is an expansive place and the hotel is no exception. The rooms a OK but not fancy. The better ones have a full fridge, coffee maker and microwave. The only thing I disliked was the noisy aircon.

We just spent a week diving with Sunset Divers and thought they were great. The dive masters were really friendly and we enjoyed being with them all week. They took us to some really nice places. We had two really rough days and they took us by bus to the other side of the island. The only reason I gave... More

We did a boat dive to the Kittiewake, which is a great wreck dive. I have been diving since 1974 and was very surprised to see the Dive Master was the last one in and first one out. Our group had eight divers, six experienced and two novice. The only time I saw him during the dive, he was 100’... More

We were with a group from our hometown dive shop, they organized the trip. Accommodations were good, we got the large room that had full size fridge, kitchen table, microwave and plenty of room to spread out. The restaurant was good, the service excellent. By the end of the week they know who drank orange juice, who ate pancakes etc,... More

Shore dive last week in the afternoon - was very impressed by marine life and healthy corals. Rental process for tanks and weights was easy and cheap - $15 (USD) for AL80 air and 14 lbs. Friendly and helpful staff. Small wreck added some interest and, most impressively, two White Spotted Eagle Rays made a nice slow swim past -... More

The staff is super friendly and helpful, the location is good and the diving was very relaxing and nice. In between dives they have a really nice outdoor resturant/bar that is pretty affordable compared to other locations on the island. This place really was desined by and for divers.

This was our first trip to a resort that specialized in diving. We really enjoyed our stay. The dive staff was friendly and always very helpful. The diving was beautiful! We had no problems at all with our booking, our room, our dives, or any other part of our trip. Having My Bar on site was very convenient for lunch... More

Wonderfully laid back place with excellent right-off-the-beach snorkeling. We arrived too late to get a locker, so they kept my bag with money and credit cards behind the counter. Great guys in the dive shop. They've cut out a large section of the rocks to create a pool that beginning divers and snorkelers can use. Our 9yo started out there... More
