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!
