CBBR is a wonderful resort. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The food was delicious and varied and many of the offerings had a spicy kick to them. The desserts were beautiful and very rich. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby has a small gift shop which

Thanks for your stay and detailed review, emptynestors. Keeping the beaches and waterfront area clear of sargassum and other items that wash in are always a work in progress. We don't disagree with your assessment of the materials that collect at the head of our dock. We do remove it all regularly however the next day you can't even tell we've done anything. Your other comments about not having staff to carry bags in the morning and lighting will be forwarded to the resort for the staff to evaluate. We are happy that you had mostly a good week with great diving and hope to see you back again.

Our dive group of 14 people had a spectacular time at this resort. The rooms were great, the staff and manager were very helpful, the pool and surrounding grounds were beautiful and meticulously cared for, the dive boat and staff were the best and the diving was fantastic!

CBBR may have the most picturesque beach in the Caribbean. Every morning I was mesmerized watching the sun creep out of the Caribbean Sea in an explosion of color. This is my 2nd visit to CBBR and it was every bit as good as the first. Rooms are nice and range from a little

We visited Cayman Brac Beach resort over the Thanksgiving holiday for a week of SCUBA diving. What a wonderful week we had! We had stayed at the resort previously in 1995. In 2008 they were unfortunately hit by a hurricane and had to rebuild. The resort was very well

It's mostly the rooms that are on the L-section farthese from the lobby. When you make a reservation, you can request one but we can't guarantee.

Your options are Cayman Airways from Miami (Saturdays, only) or Cayman Airways from Grand Cayman. It's about 10 minutes from the airport to our resort. If you are on a package with us, then normally your transfers are included. So you just exit with yoru luggage and tell any of the cab drivers waiting you're coming to stay with us.

I can't give you an exact number other than to say that Brac has 60 named dive sites but obviosuly many more - and we're sure you will find sufficient ones that have swim throughs and nice, big canyons to explore. Plus the Tibbetts wreck has been set up for safe penetration by sport divers. We don't think you will be disappointed.

Our prepaid drink packages are a good value if you drink wine or mixed drinks. If you're a beer drinker, just pay as you go. The packages includes house wine, house beer, well drinks, smoothies, juice, soft drinks, bottled water, and our menu cocktails, which include favorites like pina coladas, rum punch, margaritas, etc. An average cocktail is $10.50 CI on island plus tax and gratuity which equates to about $14.50 USD. With a 21-drink package (7-night stay), you are paying about $9.50 USD each with tax and gratuity. While we realize drinks aren't inexpensive, everything we serve has to be brought on island via ocean freight shipping service from the US (Miami) or Grand Cayman (where products often also originate in the US). So compared to drink prices "back home," we are high. However, we are competitively priced with charges at other similar resorts in the Cayman Islands and Caribbean.

We have enroute to this resort pool toys plus kid and family card and board games so there should be lots of options for enjoying your vacation with your kids. Our pool is FABULOUS for kids, because it has a beach (walk-in) entry and a good bit of shallow water. Our dive shop also has kayaks available for rental at a nominal charge if you'd like to do some exploration of the shoreline inside the reef.
