“Good stay, nice food and wonderful diving!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

My husband and me spent from August 9 until 15 in Sunset hotel, diving everyday, with a 6 days package and also unlimited shore diving. We also did the Kitti wake dive, amazing!! But we skipped the ray city one and some diver colleagues that went told us we were certained it is a visit to take photos, but its not real diving. The hotel room espacious, comfortable beds and although its not five star place for diving its perfect!!
The food in the restaurant very good, we just had breakfast included in our hotel rate, and it was very nice; but also we had several times lunch and dinner at My Bar and the quality and service provided was top! Also some of the waitresses were from Dominican Republic and they were ver nice speaking to us in Spanish when they realize it was our mother tongue.
One tip: the hotel shop is very good for divers and also souvenirs. We notice it the last day with everything packed, if we'd known before our submarine photos won't be so blue!, we would have bought a magenta filter to solve it, next time!!

This is was our third stay at this property and would gladly stay here again.
Everyone at the property was extremely friendly and helpful. They always have smiles on their faces and always cracking jokes!! Great staff overall!!
We didn't stay in the waterfront rooms and we are thinking that maybe next time we should. Our room was clean and the AC worked perfectly!! However, if there is ONE thing that would make this place PERFECT it would be updated rooms!
You cannot beat the convenience of location. Almost everything you could possibly need is right on property. The Sunset Dive Shop is on property and they are AMAZING!! The diving is always great, looooong bottom times (not like other operators that limit the dives to 30min), clean & comfortable boats, and an excellent staff as well. Simon, Aaron, and Roger: THANK YOU for a SUPERB time!! There is the SeaHarvest Restaurant, My Bar, and Cathy Church's Photo Studio and Camera Shop... all right there so there is no reason to have to leave the resort. Overall I would highly recommend if you are going to Cayman for some diving!! It's no-frills, but super convenient!!

Room Tip: The Oceanfront Rooms are very popular and have the king size beds. Worth the extra money.

We stayed seven nights in an Ocean Front room. As we didn't spend much time on our back deck, not sure we'd spend the money on this again. The view was beautiful, to be sure, but we didn't spend much time looking at it. The hotel is clean and the rooms are minimal, but we weren't in them all day, so they fit our needs. The diving staff here were wonderful and helpful. The front desk, however, not always so much. "I just work the front desk" not a great customer service response. We loved swimming in the warm pool in the evening. The waterfall is a really nice touch. My Bar has a nice, outside atmosphere, but if you're going to have anything other than the bar food, or the Indian food, I would head to somewhere else on the island. There're better restaurant meals at better prices elsewhere. Overall, this was a good experience, very nice and convenient for divers. We'll probably be back upon our return to the Caymans.

My brother and I stayed here for the first time last weak and had a great time! We shared an ocean front room which was well kept and comfortable. The dive operation was top notch, the boat captains and dive crews were all very knowlegable and professional. The bar "My Bar" is a great place to drink and eat. The entire hotel/bar/diving staff exceeded our expectations.

Spent 9 days At Sunset House and did 8 days of scuba diving. Great food. Terrific "My Bar". Great friendly staff. Very good dive instructors. Great dive sites and shore diving. No beach diving - jump off the wall into 10' of water. Ladder exit. Reasonable rates. Great place for couples and families who want to scuba dive. Free breakfast with you stay. A must do - have a "Mudslide" at My Bar after diving for the day.

We had a group of 16 and from the moment we got there we had nothing but first rate service ...
Keith the mgr met us at the door and made sure we were acclimated smoothly . As the leader of the group, the staff made it very easy for me .. this was a no worries trip ... the dive staff took very good care and seemed to know where to be when needed and more important gave us smiles the whole time ! They made it very easy to teach ....the shore diving is top notch as there are many different entrances to choose .. we had 22 dives that week , Wahoo !
All in all, I couldn't be more satisfied Thank you Keith and the Sunset House Staff

We had a wonderful trip to Sunset House. This was our second time with them. We had an ocean view room which was absolutely wonderful. The dive staff was awesome, especially Aaron, Simon and Roger. Safety was a primary concern without being paranoid. Shore diving off the resort was relaxing and easy. Food was excellent at the restaurant and at My Bar. We especially enjoyed visiting with Murphy and Merlin, the resident canines!

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
