“Lovely!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2011

We stayed at the SCC for 5 nights only as part of our 3 week trip to the Cayman Islands.

A very easy 'hop' across to this island on the Cayman Airways Express service from Grand Cayman - a short flight in the twin prop 'Otter'. We were met by staff from the hotel, and taken by mini-bus to the resort, only 5 mins (max) by road.

A small, relaxed resort with only a handful of rooms/guests. Rooms clean & tidy, but we did have an issue with the A/C on our first night, and had to switch rooms. All sorted without any hassles thanks to the helpful Front Desk Staff. All public areas very well kept, clean & tidy. The odd 'errant' geko in the lounges etc - but they are cute, and keep the bugs down!

Breakfast is buffet style - good choice.
Lunch also buffet style - good choice.
Dinner is a La Carte - good choice from the menu, but a little inflexible 'time wise' (dinner served 7pm prompt); a little early for European guests - would have preferred a later option.
All drinks on the pricey-side, but this is in line with Grand Cayman (all imported) , complimentary tea/coffee available 24/7 from the machine.
All staff very helpful & obliging - a personal service ; you are a person - not a room number.
Diving excellent - the dive staff endeavoured to take you to the Premier sites, Bloody Bay Wall about 20-30mins by comfortable, spacious boat (not many divers on board). Reef very healthy. Water and cereal bars available on the boat. Staff knowledgeable and helpful. Our only negative comment regarding the diving was the cost of Nitrox - steep at $20 a tank.

All in all a lovely few days on this tiny island, non-divers note there is really nothing much to do other than sea fishing, diving, snorkelling. Would certainly recommend!

The Southern Cross Club is one of the best dive destination resorts I’ve been too. And I’ve been diving all over the Caribbean for some 20+ years. It's a small, quiet, off the beaten path, very comfortable resort. The dive boats are modern, well designed and laid out specifically for diving. The Bloody Wall is well persevered and not over dived. The food is prepared by a gourmet chef and was very healthy and delicious. Freshly made salad and soups for lunch were particularly enjoyable. The room we had was the very comfortable honeymoon suite with a king size bed that faced the ocean - absolutely wonderful. I believe the other rooms have a similar floor plan.
The staff is honest, considerate, friendly and very helpful. They make you feel part of the Southern Cross family. I had accidently left my $10 flash drive in their computer. They tracked it down to me and mailed it back. Don’t hesitate – Go there!

This was our 2nd trip to SCC. We had high expectations because we had such a great time last year, and we were not disappointed. The divemasters (Justine, Christian and Henry) were wonderful and patient, as always, and can point out the smallest sea creature that I would never find on my own. The cabanas are impeccable and we loved the outdoor shower. The food, as always, was great, even with Chef Ron off the island for a few days. David, Jen, Maryanne, Nancy and the rest of the staff are so accommodating. We look forward to many many more trips to the SCC.

My 14-yearold son Jack, and I, spent seven euphoric days in the parallel dimension of the Southern Cross Club. I've been looking for this place for a long time. In 1967 I first learned to fish, scuba dive, and explore the allure of the Caribbean with my father. I found that same old-world magic on Little Cayman - and the Southern Cross Club was the perfect staging platform. The food was great, the accommodations sublime, and the staff exceptional. The diving and fishing is some of the best - if not the best - in the world. Little Cayman and the Southern Cross Club is the perfect destination guaranteed to restore your faith in humanity. Go now!

Southern Cross Club is a very special place indeed. The atmosphere is remarkably relaxing and laid back, with a talented and friendly staff who simply can't do enough for you. The manager, Jen, is charming, highly competent and very thoughtful. The diving in Little Cayman is, of course, fantastic and the dive operation is excellent. All of the instructors and dive masters are really accommodating, clearly love diving and want to make sure you have a great time too. Our room was spotlessly clean and beautifully turned out and the bar, restaurant and reception were all welcoming and comfortable. The food was just brilliant, with one culinary delight after another issuing forth from the kitchens! Southern Cross offers luxury without pretension and we certainly hope to be back.

Although we are not divers, this was the most relaxing place we have ever been. Because of the size (only 12 rooms) you get to know the guests and the wonderful staff personally. The room was very comfortable, well furnished and inviting. The food was outstanding. We have visited many other islands and resorts, we will def return to the Southern Cross Club!

Traveled to Little Cayman for two days/one night of relaxation and fishing, but decided 10 minutes after arriving there to spend the rest of our vacation there rather than return to Grand Cayman. It would be interesting to see if there had been any less pampering if the hotel was more than 1/3 full with only 9 guests, but I doubt it. The ringing of the meal bell evoked a pavloivan response after the first couple of tastings of the delicious meals prepared by the chef at Southern Cross. The gift shop and the bar were both honor, indicating the quality of the guests that SC enjoys. Only negatives are its high price and lthe ack of advertised presence of bone fish -- but guide Tom did the best he could to successfully put us onto tarpons and reef fish. Hostess Maryanne was always available to make sure that our needs were being met.
