Average to mediocre food, choked on boiled pork chops at lunch once. No variety whatsoever, cuisine quality varies from 2 to 5 on a scale of 10.

60's style rooms, clean sheets but the mattress caved in a puff of royal dust. Perfect for cheap Spring Breakers, or bearded bikers escaping from the law.

Phony management, great lip service, Colgate smiles, no results.

The place only survives because of the great diving off-shore, and duopoly position shared with the Brac Reef Resort just down the road.

If your idea of a tropical escape is booze and oversized tatooed mamas, go see for yourself. You might even make new friends.

The only edge over Grand Cayman here is the diving -- and by a nose --

The more ecclectic diver/traveller will no doubt enjoy the five star amenities, up to par dining, much finer beach (sand quality, cleanliness, space), comfortable/reliable boats, comparable underwater scene, anonymity, relative seclusion...

-- of some Grand Cayman properties,

without the added cost, hassle, additional two hour transit wait for this terminally ill destination.

Don't be fooled by the "extra mile" paradigm. Just because it is harder to get to does not mean you will find heaven.

Nothing more frustrating (or hilarious depending who you ask) than perishing in the fumes of an overheated diesel engine on a poorly maintained dive boat. Yeah, yeah, everybody move back, it's only gonna be a couple of hours....island time.

I quietly re-surfaced a tad earlier than anticipated on one of my dives, right behind the platform, only to find the boat keeper giving himself a pedicure with the knife destined for the orange slices.
