Just back home from the island after the best 10 night stay. My husband and I made good on our promise to come back for our 10 year anniversary after we spent an amazing honeymoon at Southern Cross.
The diving is the best! The clarity, the corals, the fish and creatures- all just perfect. We went on a night dive and saw squid, octopus, lobster, spotted drum, moray eel, lion fish, sleeping turtle, eagle ray- all on ONE dive! Not to mention the sunset and the stars on the boat rides there and back. The dive staff is the best! As a group they are very friendly and professional and individually fun personalities and easy to chat with.
The resort itself is wonderful. Some small and smart updates have been made in 10 years including a new pool with deep end and hot tub and modern lounge chairs- both great for chillaxing in the afternoon. Some of the things that have stayed the same are also appreciated- bright pastel colored units, mancala game in the lobby and the beautiful view of the ocean.
The staff is what makes this place really stand out. You learn each others name and feel very much like an island resident, if only for your brief stay. The food is wonderful- great options at all meals and fresh tuna if one happens to be caught that day!
Part of the allure of Little Cayman and Southern Cross is the quiet, chill nature. Shh, don't tell your friends about it, OK? ;)
