Emphasis on "dive". If you're a diver, this place offers the perfect getaway. Rooms are clean and comfortable -- I wondered if the housekeeping staff had OCD -- the on-site dive shop is excellent, the staff makes an effort to remember your name, the food is good and the location is pretty much in the middle of all Grand Cayman dive sites so there are no unusually long boat rides. There's also a beautiful reef directly in front of the hotel for snorkeling and shore dives (but beware of the urchins when taking off your fins!).
Cobalt Coast is on the NW corner of the island in a quiet, residential area, and is about 20 minutes from Georgetown. This is great for divers since you're not dealing with all the cruise ship passengers and the tacky tourist attractions associated with them. However, this also means that you're more or less confined to the resort. For divers this is no problem, but if you're not a diver then you may go a bit stir crazy. There's no sandy beach, there are no restaurants nearby, there's no nightlife, and there's not much within walking distance.
The all-inclusive plan is definitely worth it! Since there are no other restaurants in the area, you don't feel like you're missing out by staying at the resort for all meals. It also includes alcoholic beverages, so you can have a pre-dinner drink and two glasses of wine with dinner without incurring any surprise charges at the end of the week.
