After working in Grand Cayman for almost 7 years as a dive instructor, I finally visited the smaller sister island with some friends. We rented 3 rooms, with me opting to get the family room that has its own kitchenette.
The Cayman Islands is not a cheap vacation point, and little Cayman has few options to choose from, so when you choose wrong, you are mostly stuck with what you have. Sunset Cove is ideal for that quiet getaway. The rooms are clean and recently renovated, and since the resort has no dive business, there is no noise of boats and tanks coming and going. For divers, Sunset Cove is only minutes away from the other dive operators. Tarah the resort manager was exceptionally helpful in accommodating us, taking us to our dive boats, bringing us back, shopping trips and just taking us for lunch or dinner where ever we wanted to go. I think she still has back pain from bending over so far to accommodate us and make our trip run smooth.
The beach at Sunset Cove is stunning with a good view of Owen Island. Sunset Cove has canoes and a small boat should you wish to make your way over to the little island.
The resort has a kitchen that serves lunch and dinner. Food was great with a willing chef to make you something special. The breakfast however was the only let down, being a bit light with toast and waffles, no eggs or bacon, or chef to make you something. It is basically self-serve. However Tarah promises that it is in the works.
All in all, Sunset Cove is a good option to stay in little Cayman, especially if you want to get away from the crowd.
