“First ocean dives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2009

Absolutely wonderful. We did our Open Water and Adva. Open Water training in a quarry in central Pennsylvania, cold and algae-filled. So,this was our first ocean experience. I could not have chosen better. The resort is clean and the staff responsive to requests. The views out of your condo are spectacular. The dive staff was terrific with tending to our equipment and making new ocean divers comfortable. I am afraid we are spoiled and will never be as happy going anywhere else. You can easily alter your plans if you want a morning's break from diving. But, I would recommend getting in as many dives as offered because every one was spectacular! Thanks all at Ocean Frontier and Compass Point!

Stayed here and used for diving. Great place. Accommodations were superb. Staff is very friendly. Diving is enjoyable (except some sites can be a LONG boat ride), safety is a priority, scenery is wonderful. The whole island was great, but East End is quiet, serene and you see the best sunrises! HIghly recommend if you are looking for a quiet dive vacation with nice evenings to yourself.

I went to Compass Point Dive Resort a few weeks ago to finish my Open Water Divers certification. I had problems with my ears, which turned out to be a terrible ear infection, so I was only able to get Scuba Divers certification as I could not get myself to go below 30 ft before i found out I had swimmers ear. Ok, that happens. But what was so disappointing to me was the overall treatment by my instructor and another instructor on one of my trips out. They made me feel like I was a nuisance, an outsider and hardly gave me the time of day. My boyfriend was already certified and had a great experience with the staff he worked with. The front desk people were also wonderful.

So my entire week I couldn't dive, and there's nothing else on the resort to do if you can't dive. Just be aware of that. You can't swim off their beach (turtlegrass everywhere), and the pool is often used for training. The rooms were clean and very nice, however. There is also no food or bar available onsite.

My instructor also told me that they were way understaffed and that was due to the unforeseen popularity of an October special they ran. So maybe their attitudes were the result of that. I would only recommend this place if you already have your certification. I got the feeling that teaching wasn't as fun to the divers as the actual dives with certified guests. Again, maybe they were just fatiqued.

I'm a very easy going person, and I was very upset by the treatment here.

Compass Point is a place we'd wanted to visit for a long time, and we finally went. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night. The accommodations were absolutely amazing, clean, and in the quieter area on Grand Cayman. Would highly recommend to anyone diving or looking for a nice relaxing vacation.

Best Scuba diving I've ever done. I rolled out of bed and was 100ft from the diveboat. All the gear was set up for me and taken care of. All I had to do was show up. The resort was wonderful the staff was outstanding, respectful and very helpful. This resort hands down gets my recommendation for divers. No nightlife around, not very child friendly and isolated on the east end are the drawbacks.

I felt that the dive master was very safe and courteous to all that were on the boat. The office staff went above and beyond my expectations. The resort was away from the tourist crowd and this was very appealing to me. Our room was perfect and we really enjoyed cooking our own meals there. The service provided to my Son and I as divers could not have been better.

Wonderful room and beautiful beach, so hard to choose between the amazing diving out on the pristine East End reefs and the comfy clean and modern accomodations.
