Little Cayman Beach Resort gave us an outstanding vacation time again! The resort is small and personal, and the staff very accommodating as they seem to know everyone on-site. The food is served buffet-style with a carving station, but with Chef Karen was very tasty and

We're very happy you enjoyed yourself, Dennis G. We obviosuly agree that Chef Karen and her staff are amazing. Don't know if you had any special dietary needs, but they are able to fulfill most. And hopefully your visit was after our new dining room opened. if not, you'll have to come back to try it out! We also thank you for recognizing Sharon and her Reef Divers team. It's wonderful when guests like you recognize how special their service is. We thank you for your repeat visit and for your review - and hope to see you again soon.

Just returned from my second visit to LCBR. Had another magical visit to this gem of a resort!! Great resort set on a secluded section of beach. The location cannot be beat - the stunning blue water is steps away from everything at the resort. The oceanfront rooms on the

We appreciate your visit and your review, MSA315. Not all non-divers find enough to do on an island with just 150 residents - so we're happy you didn. Unfortunately there is no space to expand the current hot tub. But we have future plans to add 10 more rooms onto the resort on adjacent land we own. That will certainly include more facilities for guests.

LCBR is an amazing resort right on the water. The property is intimate and cozy. This was my second visit to the resort and it remains one of my favorite spots! The dive operation is the best in the Caribbean - outstanding divemasters, incredibly well run operation, valet

We thank you for being a repeat guest, MarcRasp, and are delighted you loved visit #2! All of our staff is great - we agree and thank you for recognizing Chef Karen who is a rockstar! We do have more bikes on order. The salty air tends to make them not last very long. But we are in the process of converting the old workout room into a photo center that we believe more guests will use and enjoy based on feedback we've received. So workouts will have to be relegated to walking, running, biking, climbing stairs, and swimming - not too shabby when it's on the shores of the Caribbean. We unfortunately have no space to expand the current hot tub. But if you checdk our Facebook page you will find that we have an expansion project for the resort in the works that will most certainly include more facilities. Thank you for your review.

Flying home after 8 day stay at LCBR. This was our second trip, our last being a year ago. Our trip last year was so awesome we wanted to do it again. Needless to say it did not disappoint! Clive warmly welcomed us at the airport and delivered us to LCBR. We were welcomed

And we are excited for you to come back, too, jodilprince, to see our new diving room which is scheduled to be completed by end of this month (February 2019). We love having repeat guests who help us ensure that we maintain the same high level of services from year to year. And thanks for naming some of our great staff members at the resrot and Reef Divers. We think they're awesome, but it's always great to know that guests recognize as well. Thank you for choosing us a second time and for taking the time to publish a review. We will look forward to visit #3!

Came here with a group for a dive vacation and I highly recommend it. Some key highlights: - the service is outstanding. Everyone is helpful and a lot of fun! - the dive service and equipment are top notch. Note I brought my own gear so I am referring to the boats,

Thank you, U7570OEkellyt, for visiting our resort and taking the time to post a review. As you've noted, we are primarily a dive resort and try to warn non-diving partners that they need to either be okay with just chilling or be ablet to self-entertain. We'd love to see you come back again after our new diving room and giant outdoor, screened diving paviollion are completed sometime next month.

What are the boat ladders like Are the steps narrow or wide had foot surgery a while ago
They are pretty typical boat ladders with flat versus round steps. However, with our valet diving services you don't have to move above water with your tanks. We carry it to the back of the boat where we have side, sturdy seats. We help you put it on, stand up, and it's one step into the water. Or we could even float it for you off the transom and you coult put it on in the water. Getting out would require you to climb the steps, but we can take your tank and fins from you so you don't have the extra weight. Hope this helps.

Do you have rooms for handicapped limited mobility diver
The short answer is maybe. It depends on your level of disability and travel dates since we have only 2 rooms that have possibilities. I would suggest you contact our reservations office or your dive travel planner who can better assess your needs and discuss.

Is there snorkeling from the beach or trip to snorkel and see a lot of tropical fish
There isn't really good snorkeling from our beach. We are on a nice big bay, but there's not much coral. You will see some fish swimming around and a turtle, ray, or barracuda occasionally - but not like are on the reefs. There is snorking off other parts of the island, but you will need transportatoin and not all of it is from sandy beaches. Much of the Cayman Islands are iron shore (rocks), so you have to climb over them getting in and out of the water.

Do you have DIN valves on any of your tanks, specifically the NITROX tanks?
I don’t recall seeing any DIN valves, but I’d call them and ask. They are very helpful. It is a top notch operation.

We're making our dining room almost twice as big. So now we are serving in our conference room. We expect the renovations to be completely done sometime in January if not sooner.

"Oceanfront are the best"
"If you want quiet, take the top floor and you won't hear the people walking overhead, but you will have stairs to go up. No elevators."
"Room 103 quiet, well appointed, near bar, restaurant and pool"
"King beds are not a given...you might check for ocean view rooms, they seem to be bigger"
"Avoid room near entrance as the noise starting at 6:30am of staff rolling equipment down to the diving pier is not pleasant."
