My wife and I went for a 5 day get-a-way and were immediatly mezmorized by this intimate resort. The setting is surreal and the staff and food outstanding. The "Barefoot Elegance" description fits the Southen Cross Club well as it is both casual and classy at the same time. Probably best suited for those seeking total relaxation, diving and/or fishing experience as Little Cayman is a beautiful, but small, island.
We stayed on the top floor of the yellow bungalo (not sure if it has a room number) and it had spectacular views, very comfortable accomadations, even an outside shower on the balcony!
The dive staff was phenominal; from tracking down my old certification, a quick refresher course, and top quality gear. The boat is new and well set up. I especially liked the drawings and small presentation before each dive explaining what lie below us in the deep blue sea before we jumped in. These are truly "guided dives" and Mike and Christian are exceptional all the way around. And the diving is WOW.
Lunch and dinner are signalled by a ring of the bell and were tasty and healthy at the same time. Fernando is a wizard at the bar and made for some memorable evenings. While we visited, staff outnumbered the guest and were both helpful and friendly. We will be back and hopefully sooner than later!!!
