This place was made for diving. It is located away from all the touristy locations of the island and that is very nice to not have those distractions. Divetech was awesome, they were always on top of everything. One of the guys(forgot his name, been a while) went out of his way to get me a red filter for my... More

This return trip with my daughter was another great one. Arie, Dora, and Ms. Kym made us feel looked after and frequently asked us how everything was going for us. By the second day, Ms. Kym knew what we liked to drink and eat, and she made sure a table was set for our small group. Arie is the "face... More

All of the reviews are correct about Ari, you feel like you have known him. Everything was great about where we were,all of the staff kind and considerate. The bar was fun as were the other guests. We ate at the bar also very good food and great service. Being a local I know this is where I will stay... More

This is the second time I’ve spent 5 amazing weeks of winter diving and relaxing at Cobalt Coast. This is a small resort that focuses on customer service. What makes it really outstanding is Ari (the owner) & his staff. I felt pampered and catered to during my entire stay. When we arrived, Ari greeted us like family, with a... More

We were given an upgrade to one of the oceanfront suites, suite 5. The dive shop, Divetech, was just steps away from our front door, which made it very convenient. Room: Spacious, well-lit. Ample room for luggage. King bed was comfortable. Queen sofa bed had thin mattress (like most sofa beds), which is only suitable for kids. Very uncomfortable for... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Cobalt Coast and dove with Divetech the week of Mar 15-22. The experience from beginning to end was world-class and they lived up to their stellar reputation. Upon arrival we were met for check-in. We reviewed our package agreement which was correct and then we were shown to our room. We received a friendly... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage and bought groceries so we could cook some of our own meals. There is no wi-fi in the cottages but if you go to the pool area or Duppies Restaurant and Bar you can connect there. We ate lunch at Duppies a couple of times along with dinner one night and breakfast the... More

Dear Norm, I just read your comments and you make my day: Next year two weeks! I know, that's how the island grabs you. Happy to see that you made time to snorkel our house reef right of our dock. You will always remember these little critters, don't even need a camera. Looking forward to be your host again next... More

Top-Notch Scuba Diving Operation, DiveTech, is the on-site source for boat dives, equipment rental, training and more. Host Arie has put together one of the finest dive resorts to be found anywhere on Earth. The North Wall is about 100 yards offshore, and the house reef and the one at Lighthouse Point make Unlimited Shorediving a real treat. Excellent cooked-to-order... More

Dear Paul, you make my day with your kind comments about Divetech and our operation. Glad to see that you pointed out the availability of shore diving, which really sets us apart from most dive resorts in the Cayman Islands. Weather permitting you can walk down the dock, down a 5 ft. ladder and 5 minutes later, you swim above... More

The hotel is situated in West Bay - away from all the hustle and bustle of seven mile beach. But, seven mile beach is very close by car and there are many access points onto the beach. The main reason to stay here is for the scuba diving. The dive operation, Dive Tech, located at this hotel is top notch.... More

Dear guest, it appears to be true that we attract mostly divers because of our location which is near the North West point of Grand Cayman. Lucky for us, the island is big enough that we can "hide" from rough weather and drive about one mile from the resort to West Bay dock for our boat diving. It appears that... More

Can't say enough good things about Cobalt Coast! Just back from a long weekend and the staff and lodgings were excellent, especially Colin, the Irish bartender. Very clean with the dive shop on site and easy access to shore diving. Private beach for relaxing and only a short drive to 7 Mile Beach, though with such good food at Cobalt,... More
