Compass Point Dive Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a 1br condo with an ocean view. The space was great - nice king size bed. I love how there are sliding doors as well as ceiling fans in both the bedroom & living room, since I prefer to no use the AC. The Kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels.

We stayed here in March and are pretty new at diving. We were impressed with the divemasters associated with this hotel and had a good experience overall with the dive staff and hotel. Our room was clean and right on the small beach. Kitchenette was perfect to cook our breakfasts and lunches. Beware the food and fuel costs in Grand Cayman are very high so cooking our own meals was a nice option. Do recommend this hotel for the divers among you!

We loved the room. It was a great deal for a fantastic price. We scuba dive and snorkel so this has it all. They pick up your equipment right from your door and take care of everything from there. The staff are professional and kind. They are building a Tiki Bar and Grill poolside and that will add a lot to the lack of amenities. They give you an option of a maid to clean your room for a fee. We saved the money and made our own beds and used the dishwasher with no issues at all. It also comes with a washer and dryer. A new restaurant opened up right across the street so if you don't feel like cooking you can try that. We used the bikes to go to the next little town and look around. I would recommend this hotel and plan to go back to stay with them next year.

5 stars says it all. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this location even though I did not dive on this trip and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The unit that I rented was very clean and spacious. The resort is located on the far east end of the island away from the tourist crowd. Everything I needed (post office, grocery store and restaurants) was in a 2-3 mile radius. What I enjoyed most about the resort is that I could walk out the back door and take approx 20-25 steps and have my feet in the ocean.

The staff at Compass Point are extremely friendly and helpful. The accomodations are clean and comfortable, the atmosphere is relaxing. Even if you're not a diver, this is a great place to stay!

Compass Point is a great diving resort. The stay started with a personal tour and review of our room amenities. What a welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed the small dive groups and the location. It would be nice to have a more sandy beach and we were a little surprised that maid service was not included. There were options but full maid service is quite expensive.

Although it is far from the center of island, it is a good location for loungy vacation. As all diving gears are set by staffs, you just go to a boat and ride on it. You can ride on the boat within a few minutes from your room of the hotel.

Location was great for diving, with easy access to the resort's dive trips. Located on the East End of the island, it is away from the hustle of Georgetown proper. If you want a bit of seclusion on Grand Cayman, this is the place to be. You will need to rent a car to get there from the airport and to get around the island. A local grocery store is about 3 miles down the road. Amenities on site were great, with the exception of the stove and oven taking a long time to heat up and therefore a long time to cook meals. The view out the patio of the sea was outstanding, and the kids loved the pool and hot tub; however, the temperature of the hot tub was sometimes hot and sometimes not.

If you love to scuba dive, this Caribbean dive resort is top drawer. Friendly professional staff, enthusiastic, knowledgeable dive masters, dive site variety, comfortable accomodations, large boats limited to 12 divers and all located in a quiet and laidback spot on Grand Cayman Island.

The hotel/condo was perfect. It came with a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. The rooms where clean and well decorated and furnished. The convinience for divers is spectacular with full gear assistance and the dock being steps from your doorstep. This is not really a place to spend the day lounging on the beach, the North or West sides of the island are much better for that, but with the price for food it was so nice to have a full kitchen to eat in. You need to rent a car to stay at this location. The staff is fantastic and always friendly.

We wanted a relaxing family vacation with scuba diving included, and that's exactly what Compass Point delivered. The condo had everything we could want, and a beautiful view of the ocean and sunrises enjoyed on the balcony. The on-site dive operation (Ocean Frontiers) is top-notch, and all the staff are knowledable and friendly. You really must rent a car when staying here, as there is no on-site restaurant and beaches for swimming are further than walking distance.

This was the third time we stayed at Compass Point in Grand Cayman. We love the condo, the view, the staff, and the price. Although we are not divers, we like to snorkel and we use Compass Point as our home base while we explore the island. We honestly cannot find anything wrong with Compass Point, their operation, or the staff. We will continue to stay there as long as we travel to Grand Cayman. Thanks again Compass Point for a great vacation.

I went scuba diving every day and it was great that it was literally a minute walk to the dive boat every morning. As far as condo resorts go this one was basic as far as no restaurant or bar etc. But a great home for the week. We rented a car and went everywhere to explore. We usually stay all inclusive so this was a neat experience and one we would do agin.

Well equipped one bedroom with dishwasher, W/D, deep whirlpool tub and a large balconey. Superb service (room, diving and management).

Beautiful ocean front 2 bedroom condo. We had three adults and two children and we fit very comfortably. Condo is well equipped with a full kitchen and washer and dryer. It is a very quiet part of the island, we enjoyed the quiet. But not much nightlife if you are looking for that sort of thing. It is a small property and much cozier. More of a property for those who are diving and snorkeling all day. Not for the sit around the pool types, although there are some lovely beaches not too far away. We are not divers, but went on the Wednesday snorkel cruise with Ocean Frontiers and had a great time. It does not go to Stingray City, but you get to see some other reefs that most tours don't go to.
