"For our scuba diving vacation, we first decided on our dive company "Off The Wall". They referred us to this condo because the condo owners do their diving with OTW. We still did lots of research as to where to stay but inevitably chose this condo based on the great reviews and location. Getting our emails and questions answered in a very timely manner sealed our decision. There were 4 of us and this 2 bedroom condo was absolutely perfect. The highlights for us were the ease of use of the kitchen, having our own bathrooms which were off our individual bedrooms, and the wonderful balcony. Each bedroom had huge closets containing many hangers (loved that) for your clothes. The grounds were impeccable and we saw multiple maintenance folks attending to every detail of the grounds. Sitting on our balcony, we saw them cleaning the grills, the pool, and the grounds all the time.
The condo is in a lovely quiet neighborhood located off the main road and we got to walk everywhere. The decision was made not to rent a car because we had read about the busses that travel up and down the main road. The bus situation was THE BEST we could have hoped for. They do indeed honk their horn at you if you are walking and will stop to pick you up and take you where you are going. The fare is about $2.50 each person no matter how far you are traveling. (we took a cab from the airport which was $18). All the locals on the bus would help you out with advice and there were super friendly. We felt totally at ease everywhere we went!
Grand Cayman itself has lots to offer and the four of us went diving on 3 of our 7 days. Yes, there are a multitude of dive companies to pick from. We chose "Off The Wall" and we were very glad we did. They knew the island, they were super organized, and they did a wonderful job taking us to fantastic dive sites. However, they would NOT store our wetsuits and we had to bring them back everyday and dry them on the balcony on a rack we found in the closet.
If you decide to visit "Stingray City" we recommend using "Captain Marvin's" to take your tour. The price was so reasonable, the bus that picks you up is great, and their boats are very nice. It IS a zoo at the actual ocean spot so no matter what tour boat you take, there will be a crowd.
In summary, we thank the owners for allowing folks to rent their condo and we want you to know we enjoyed it immensely. It is truly represented here online accurately as a great condo!"
