Quiet and intimate or near the action? At the small 24-room Cobalt Coast Resort on Grand Cayman, you don’t have to choose. Our quiet but convenient West Bay location is just a short ride from all the action and excitement of Seven Mile Beach and George Town—by rental car, cab, or public transportation. Before or after dining al fresco, enjoy your favorite beverage at Duppies, overlooking the Caribbean. And Reef Divers makes it easy to reach all the best dive sites, including the North Wall and the Kittiwake wreck.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband, son and I travel once a year for a dive vacation. Someone recommended the Cobalt Coast and it is hard to describe the fabulous experience. The rooms were great, the food was excellent, the diving was spectacular. However, it was really the staff that made the experience so special. Everyone from Colin who welcomed us as manager to the incredible bar tenders to our server who anticipated our every need, we could not have been more pleased. And it would be impossible not to rave about the concierge diving and the attention given primarily by Rowan and Carl. However, with such a wonderful trip (and expectations that we would be back frequently), we learned that the present company will cease operation in two weeks. It will be a great loss for Grand Cayman Diving!!!!

Last travelled here was just before COVID, the Island has not really opened open yet since then. This resort has great food and nice rooms. Its located in the "West End" on the grand island, right on the ocean. Has a great dive shop and several boats. The last time we were there, we stayed 2 weeks and I ran into Dr Guy Harvey. The Marriott Hotel down on 7 mile beach has one of the best Sunday brunches on Mothers day.

If you are looking for a secluded place to dive..this will fit your needs. HOWEVER, if you have a non diver, you will seriously need to consider renting a car. The local public bus system is the second choice. Taxi is dead last due to expense. This resort is pretty desolate and away from anything like a grocery or convenience store. The diving is awesome with ability to get to the North Wall and multiple reef locations. Minimal large fish life, mostly tropicals small fish. Topography is awesome with lava flows creating many walls and fingers to explore. The house reef is pretty good as well. Reef Divers on site have an excellent staff and operation. Absolutely a great time with them. 5 stars!! The resort is like a cottage style feel. The staff was awesome and very accommodating. Rooms were large and spacious, up to date, and clean. The not so good is the cost. Pretty expensive to get food and drinks if not a part of the purchased meal plan. Multiple resort buses will not be used to transport you any where but to/from airport. No side events like snorkel, turtle center visits, etc. Again, if you have a non diver…they will be bored. This is a pure Dive, Eat, Sleep resort with you having no intention of doing any real sightseeing. Seriously…rent a car or stay closer to ‘civilization’.

Cobalt Coast is arguably the best dive resort that I have visited. Mick and his staff really put in the hours to ensure a great stay for all. Sarah was instrumental in planning a post dove trip to the stingray sandbar, even facilitating transportation. The chef is inventive and provided outstanding meals across the board. Additionally, the bar staff (Rafi and Dao) were friendly and helpful throughout the stay.

My husband and I just returned from a cobalt Coast. We took a group of 20 down to enjoy the diving and the rum. We had the most amazing time. We were catered to left and right from the food to our dive gear. It was the most relaxed I have been in a long time. The rooms were cool and comfortable and I loved the bed so much I had to ask the brand. The diving was so lazy and chill and the wildlife was plentiful. From the smallest cleaner shrimp to the largest rays, we saw so much life on these reefs where we were able to do multiple hour long dives. The crew made sure conditions were optimal before mooring every time. They hauled our gear to the edge of the boat for us. We had only to haul ourselves out of the water. The food was so yummy and plentiful. As a pescatarian, I am always worried if I am going to get the protein needed to keep diving all week. I needn’t have worried at Cobalt, there were choices for every diet at every meal. They were able to set up several excursions for us boy as a group and as individuals as well. We visited Sting Ray Sand Bar and came nose to nose with big stingrays! Lastly, the crew had a last hurrah with us on our last night there. The drinks were in abundance and it was amazing to see that they get to have fun too whilst living in such paradise. We will be back!!!

This is a great little dive resort. We were displaced from their sister resort due to an incoming storm and Cobalt Coast staff went above and beyond to make room for us. It is a well run little dive resort. Everyone especially Colin made us feel welcome and we enjoyed our short stay. While we didn’t dive, we could see they run a great dive operation with several dive sites nearby. The resort is located in a quiet part of Grand Cayman and there is good snorkel access from their dock. The food and drinks were fantastic. Would love to return!

This was our first trip back in 7 years. We have been attempting to get here again since 2020 (obvious reasons, it has been kicked down the road many times until this past week. We had not been while under the REEF Divers team / ownership before. They used their time over covid exceptionally well doing a lot of site renovations and changes making it even easier for divers that want to enjoy the island reefs. We were spoiled to say the least! Some of our fav staff members were thankfully still there; Colin / Lee!! The staff we did not know from the past made sure they knew us quickly. The chef and his team did a solid job keeping us divers feed well for the week. The room (Mermaid) is the quietest hotel room I have ever stayed in and super comfy bed. The dive crew. This was the true spoil for us. We have never worked with a valet diving crew before. We still check our stuff as per usual. But all of the risk of getting hit with tanks walking to the stern or in and out of the water bangs/bruises gets taken away. The help with the gear and making sure we were solid kept safe and enjoyed everything. They guided us on their favourite sites and made sure they drew our attention to the little things we normally don't see/find. Basically, it was the best dive trip yet! The other part of this, you are on the same boat, same people, same crew all week. They tailored everything to what the likes were very quickly and ensured it was super. We are even looking at booking a trip next year with the family/dive club that we met because we meshed so well....as a whole boat! We had to pull out of the Thursday dives due to an emergency at home and my lack of sleep. My other half let the staff know. They were awesome. Everyone kept checking in with us to see how things were and just to make sure if we needed anything to help ease my worry. All thankfully ended up okay. But it was so nice to get to know such supportive people. Thank you for such a great trip!! For our first time in 7 years, it felt like we had been diving regularly. Wishing all of the resort staff Mick, Colin, Uly, Lee, Rowan, Carl, Lucy, Chris, and all of the other staff our best!

I never stayed here but down the road, but walked it’s beaches, saw the best things ever ie seashell lined sidewalks, barracudas - big one anyhow and gorgeous water and sand. Just Do It.the Drambui and Rum weren’t like the Bahamas but the 45 degree heat solved that concern. Cold beer answered the call, son went on hotel kids camp fishing excursion and we went reef snorkeling and thank God we didn’t see any hammerheads but we did find pirate caves onshore to help us absorb the water adventures. uie

What a great place. Smiling faces from the minute we left the shuttle from the airport, until we left a week later. It seemed like within an hour of our arrival, all of the staff knew our names and favorite drink. Rooms are being painted and renovated currently, bar area is nice, and the view from the dining area are first rate. Dive operation is amazing as all of the Reef Divers operations are. Lee and Lucy are dive masters extraordinaire, and were great not only in the wTer, but also on the boat. This site has an alternative pier on the Lee side of the point, so if it is windy on the north shore, you can still dive. No missed dive days here. Food was good, rooms clean and comfortable, great staff adm world class diving. Colin at the bar makes the afternoons and evening fly by with quick wit and a great smile. We will be back, soon and often.
