Welcome to Grand Cayman's historic hotel for divers by divers... Scuba Diving is the talk of the town here! Sunset House is the oldest hotel on Grand Cayman, started back in 1958 with the family Matriarch Ms. Hebe! The family still owns and operates this iconic dive resort today! From an array of different variety of palm trees to an amazing house reef; from 5 custom dive boats, to Cathy Church and her retail and photo school (a world famous underwater photographer); from amazing Caribbean concoctions, to spicy Indian dishes; they all await you! And combined with warm Caymanian hospitality, you'll wonder why you waited so long to visit this West Indian oasis, or why you haven't come back sooner. Of course, the Caymans and Sunset House are a diver's paradise, with crystal-clear waters awaiting your arrival. Come to Sunset House today and experience now, what others have seen for over the last 55 years. An underwater photographer's perfect dive. Shipwrecks, curious big eels, cuddly stingrays and a legendary mermaid await you just steps from your room for those staying at Sunset House!

Dive staff excellent. Dive wildlife disappointing. Resturant staff not very friendly and slow. Bar staff extremely unfriendly, forgetful, at times even rude. To have 15% gratuity included in bill was insulting. We spent a week there and opinion never improved. There are resorts on island...More

We used their ocean-connected pool to suit up and swam out to a pretty cool dive with lots of Tarpon and the famous underwater statue. The location is great, and the pool is really nice to get you acclimated and going.
