Sunset House, Grand Cayman: 506 reviews and 8 photos

  Room at the Sunset House
by catalysta

This hotel is practically next door to the Seaview, just a little ways further south from Georgetown. It's the next step up, just a little nicer. Advertised as created "by divers, for divers", it offers good values in its packages, with a good dive shop onsite as well. One of the big draws is that reknowned underwater photographer Cathy Church has her gallery & dive school here.

Although the rooms don't have a lot of extras either, they are just nicer, and roomier than the Seaview. But who needs Sat TV when you are staying at THE shore diving hot spot? BTW, the managers let me have a look and take a few photos when I told them I was going to put them on my Virtual Tourist web page!

Unique Qualities: I did the Stingray City dive with the outfit here at the Sunset House. It was a great dive boat, nicely outfitted, and the equipment was all very good.

My only caveat, as a rank beginner in the Dive World, would be to warn other beginners that there's a bit of the dive snobbery in the hotels that cater specifically to divers, and you'd better know how to handle your own gear, that's what's expected of you.

I was a little confused at times, & the guys in the shop could've been a lot more helpful in their explanations of where/when/what to do. (Monosyllabic answers just don't cut it when you are a newbie.)
