“An absolutely perfect place to stay on an island that is the ultimate in relaxation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2011

All of the other resorts are all inclusives. Paradise Villas has a good restaurant right next door and you can dine at the other resorts if you choose. The view from the porch is unquestionably the best to be had on the island and the service is just right. Whether snorkling or diving is your thing, there couldn't be easier access to the water and premier dive operations.

We recently returned from an 8 day trip to Paradise Villas (our second visit) where we shared a villa with another couple with whom we travel and dive together frequently. We typically travel to different dive destinations but are so glad that we came back to PV after several years’ absence. The resort is still managed by the same gracious and friendly folks who were so helpful in every aspect, including Marc and Sabine who manage the resort, Emma who met us at the airport, Michelle who cleaned our villa, and Rebecca who quickly responded our initial questions by e-mail. There is so much that we enjoyed about the villas that made for a great stay, including its cleanliness, comfortable beds, great little appointed kitchen, nice sitting area, bathroom with amenities, bar and restaurant, WIFI that kept us connected to family members, and location. We especially enjoyed the seaside porch where we sat each morning sipping our coffee while watching the sunrise. By bringing breakfast, lunch and snack foods and eating our dinners out we were able to minimize our costs. We enjoyed meals at the Hungry Iguana, as well as walking to the Little Cayman Beach Resort Bar for a less expensive option.

We are very active and for a quiet, laid-back little island we kept ourselves very busy. We dove six times with Conch Club Divers and appreciated the high-quality, professional and organized services offered by Bill the captain and Ann and Matt the diver masters. We were promptly picked up each morning at the villa for the short ride to the dock where our gear was set up on the roomy, comfortable boat--ready for our first dive. All of the crew members were so friendly and engaging, gave helpful briefings, and assisted us in getting on our gear and off of the boat quickly. We really liked the fact that we could follow the dm or dive our own profile, as well as return to the boat based upon our air levels (and after the dm had returned to assist others). Given the occasional windy conditions the crew did their best to get us to the Bloody Bay Wall where the diving was spectacular. Seeing the southern sting and spotted-eagle rays, sharks, turtles, giant groupers, eels, and beautiful schools of assorted fishing swimming within the coral reefs was such a treat. We loved the topography of the swim-throughs that descended out to the BBW where we gradually ascended while exploring the magnificent edge and top. During the surface intervals we really enjoyed talking with Bill, Ann, and Matt and hearing their stories of island life which added so much to our experience.

In the afternoons we rode the bicycles around the island to the National Trust House (to view the birds and eat ice-cream), museum, community park, various bird-viewing platforms, and quiet secluded beaches with pretty tidal pools and coral beaches. Looking for iguanas lazing in the sun was a treat! Evenings were spent sitting on the porch with a drink, gazing at the night sky, listening to the waves, and appreciating the solitude of the island. Little Cayman is truly a nature lover’s paradise. Our thanks go out to all of the folks at Paradise Villas and Conch Divers, as well as all of the locals we met for contributing to such a fun and memorable vacation.

We are a family of 4 with two teenagers and just spent a long weekend diving Little Cayman with Conch Club Divers staying at Paradise Villas. This was our first trip to Little Cayman. We had a great time. Beautiful island and nice people. Paradise Villas promptly responded to our pre trip email inquiries and did a wonderful job answering all our questions. We booked two rooms and PV arranged our diving with CCD. On arrival, we were met by Sabine at the airport and check in and getting settled in was a snap. The office and rooms are a short walk from the airport and Marc drove our bags from the airport and put them by our rooms. If you have not been to Little Cayman before, don't be concerned about the proximity of the airport to the resort. There is no traffic and no noise. A small plane lands a few times a day. The accomodations were perfect. Clean, spacious and right on the water. There was plenty of room inside and out for all our dive gear and peferct spots for hanging and drying out our gear after a morning of diving. Housekeeping came by everyday and did a nice job - even cleaning the coffee maker! We at our lunches and dinners at the Hungry Iguana. The pictures on the website do not do justice to the inside of the Hungry Iguana. The restaurant is cozy, comfortable with tables and booths. We dined inside and out and enjoyed all of our meals. The staff was friendly and attentive. The menu was varied enough to satisfy everyone's tastes. Bicycles were available for peddling around which was a lot of fun. We rode down to the small grocery store and visitor center. We rented scooters one day from Scooten Scooter and rode around the island and to Point of Sand. Well worth it and Scooter Bruce was nice to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our diving in Little Cayman. Diving the wall, swim throughs and seeing our first sharks were the highlights. CCD were excellent. Bill, Ann and Matt were professional, friendly, informative, helpful and were just plain fun to be around. Good people, just like the folks at Paradise Villas. We loved the low key quiet island vibe and everyone we met was nice and friendly. PV and CCD was a perfect combination for us. For our departure, Marc and Sabine went out of their way to contact the airlines and inquire about our ability to make a tight connection in Grand Cayman. We appreciated the effort and thanks to their help we had no trouble making our flight. We will definitely be back and would recommend PV and CCD to anyone looking to dive and relax in a casual beautiful setting. Tom Kaelin

My husband and I stayed at Paradise Villas for 2 weeks and enjoyed the waterfront view, friendly staff and the kitchenette. This island has the friendliest people that I have ever encountered!!! During our stay we dove with Conch Club Divers and it's clear that the staff enjoy their work and therefore everyone has a GREAT experience. We dove with Bill, Anne, and Matt and we will return to dive with them again. Anne is hysterical and one of the most entertaining dive masters that I have ever encountered! The crew is very safety conscious, professional and puts forth a lot of effort to make everyone feel comfortable. Overall a very enjoyable and fun experience!!!!!

Helpful Tips: PV is within walking distance of the store and you can purchase anything that you find at a mini-mart plus items such as frozen turkey, cheese, taco kits, fresh fruit and vegetables Prices are very high, expect to pay double and bring your own packaged food. If you want to save some cash bring your own chips, condiment packets, coffee or tea. We went without sugar in our coffee as we refused to buy a 2 lb bag at the store. In the room you have access to a toaster, portable stove range, coffeepot and microwave. There's limited reading material here so stock up on books, magazines or your kindle. You can even donate your old book to the library at PV or in the Trust building. The internet worked in our room and we were able to use SKYPE on our porch, the best connection in the room is closest to the office. The TV has a DVD player in it and you can rent DVDs at the store from a small collection. The airport is next door but did not bother us at all.

CCD offers to come pick you up at PV , we took advantage of this and occasionally we rode our bikes that PV provide for a small fee. It's nice being within walking distance of the store and 5-10 min. biking distance from CCD pier and other restaurants. Reef diver's bar has great burgers and other bar food. Pirates Point is a lot of fun for diner and Gladys is hysterical! Make it a point to have diner there one night (ask for sushi night) and make sure to call 24 hours ahead of time to get your name on the list. It’s an easy bike ride there but bring a flashlight for the ride back. They’ll also provide transportation if you prefer. Go check out the iguanas at the museum property, there are about 40 of them and on a sunny day they come out to you. It's frowned upon to feed them. Our favorite spot was Point of Sand beach, rent a scooter or car by the store and go see it. It's the most beautiful beach we've ever seen and we were the only people there.

Paradise Villas is a fantastic place to stay. Little Cayman Island is a peaceful outdoor location that is perfect for relaxing and doing nothing. The villas are the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The staff are friendly and helpful. The amenities in the units include cooking facilities, a living room area separate from the sleeping area and a lovely porch 50 feet from the sea. The Hungry Iguana restaurant offers adequate meals, and the local grocery store is just a two minute walk from the Villas. Conch Club Divers provides the finest service for scuba diving and snorkeling, with daily pickup at Paradise Villas; they are friendly divemasters with a strong emphasis on safety and in-depth knowledge of the gorgeous local dive sites. The island has awesome snorkeling areas right from shore, and Bloody Bay Marine Park has some of the world's best diving. The reef life is lush with many hard and soft corals, turtles, fish, conchs, grouper, sharks, rays, eels and other awesome sightings on every dive; we have even seen seahorse, squid, octopus and other rare creatures in Bloody Bay. This is an awesome vacation destination for those who are looking to spend time in a tranquil natural environment; no phones, no need for a car, no entertainment venues -- just a tranquil tropical island with the beautiful Caribbean Sea at your front door.

This is the best get away! You really do get away from it all. Staff is friendly and helpful at all times of day and night. You need anything they get if for you or find someone who will. Love the minni kitchen in villa. Nice to be able to grab something quick to eat or just go down the way to the only resturant on island. Great dive boat and staff as well. They seem to know the most active dive spots at all times. Making reservations was easy by calling the 800 number in the states. Very informative and got back to us right away with great prices. Can't wait to go back!
