“Sunset House Rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This wonderful resort takes care of all your diving needs and desires. We did two boat sieves each day, with a thorough briefing beforehand and very knowledgeable and safety conscious divemasters guiding us. Lots of great animal life and beautiful reefs, a few interesting wrecks, along with access to the Kittiwake and Sting Ray City as added events. Unlimited shore diving with a fabulous easy entry. The on site restaurant was excellent. The staff were outstanding! Within a day they greeted guests by first name and helped make sure everything was to your liking. Don't miss staying at this great resort!

Room Tip: A nice room facing the courtyard gives easy access to the pool and restaurant.

I've stayed at Sunset House twice now, diving with Sunset Divers, and will be back in a few week! The staff are great, My Bar is great; the location is off the charts! It's also accessible (I use a wheelchair) so that's a plus. Can't wait to go back!

A few weeks ago, my family and I traveled to the Cayman Islands and we booked our dive excursions with Sunset House. We've booked with Sunset House before and always had great experiences, but this time, they really went above and beyond.

Our trip was over Easter week and needless to say, the island was busy. They accommodated us with ease at the last minute and even helped when my youngest son lost his GoPro which made them heros to us that week.

After returning from his last dive of the week, my son was devastated when he realized his GoPro with all of his footage from his scuba certification dives, family time and more was gone. However, we reached out to the team at Sunset House and they searched and found the GoPro even though they were busy with other guests. We were all shocked that the GoPro was still around (that no one else had taken it) and they even delivered it to our hotel which was a few miles down the road.

Thank you Sunset House! We can't wait to visit again.

Can't say enough good things about Sunset House and its proprietors, Keith and Karin Sahm. I've stayed at SSH house maybe six times the past two years -- alone, with family and with friends. Each stay has been better than the last. The reasons are almost too many to mention -- the incredibly friendly and professional dive staff at Sunset Divers, the amazing Indian and Caribbean fare prepared by the resort's chefs, the awesome, "what else could a diver possibly want in a room?"accommodations, Murphy the resort's Springer Spaniel mascot and official greeter, My Bar (which pretty much defies description), the SSH cornhole court, Sunset Divers' signature red-hulled dive boats, not to mention some of the best shore diving in the world -- it just goes on an on. Most important, however, is the convivial, you're-family-here atmosphere Keith and Karin have created. Whoever came up with the phrase "Caymankind" must have been thinking about them. With apologies to Captain Don (may he rest in peace), Sunset House is as it has always been -- simply the best dive destination in the Caribbean.

Keith & Karin were absolutely wonderful. They handled every request and question that our group threw at them with a smile. Their success shouldn't be a surprise. They even participated in our scavenger hunt which was a GREAT success due in large part to their hospitality.

WE'LL BE BACK!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 500 block... it's away from the hustle and bustle of the pool area.

This last trip in October of 2014 was my third visit to Sunset House. The trip was so memorable that I have already reserved my return trip for 2015. Our group used Enriched Air (Nitrox) all week, we managed dives on the Kittiwake day and night, Stingray City, and an assortment of great dives each and every day. Each day started out with meeting the boat at a dock located on the resort. We also took advantage of the shore diving and made at least 4 additional night dives over the week stay, along with numerous afternoon dives.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the best. You will always have a spectacular view

it may be older and without all the GLITZ of newer upscale resorts, but if you are a diver and especially a dive photographer this is the place to experience. they are totally focused on diving and dive photography.

for the non diver their is also lots to do like relax, read swim in the ocean or pool kayak snorkel,etc.

Room Tip: the new group of rooms cost more and are nicer but if you are there to dive I'm not sure it'...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
I've have found the beginning of why so many people love Sunset House, Grand Cayman's Hotel for Divers, by Divers. "Stepping out of my room, feeling the sunshine on my face, catching that breath of fragrant tropical breeze, gazing into the alluring blue water..". More profound words were never spoken! This family owned resort is more of a big guest house, than a hotel. Everything you have dreamed for a Caribbean Dive Vacation is here! From palm trees to an amazing house reef; from 5 custom dive boats, to a 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 50 years. An underwater photographer's perfect dive. Shipwrecks, curious big eels, cuddly stingrays and a legendary mermaid await you just steps from your room! ... more   less
