Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (April 23, 2018) The Compass Point Dive Resort on Grand Cayman’s East End has won a 2018 Tripadvisor® Travelers’ Choice Award for Best Small Hotels in the Caribbean, making it #1 in the Cayman Islands and # 8 in the region.  Tripadvisor, a popular travel planning and booking website, celebrates quality, service and value, and Compass Point has won this award several multiple times.

Winners are determined based on reviews and opinions gathered in a single year from TripAdvisor® travelers worldwide. The win places the Compass Point Dive Resort in the top 1% of small hotels in the world and earns the #8 ranking in the Caribbean.

"I am very proud of our team because they work hard every day to offer our guests the best,” said resort co-owner Steve Broadbelt, “being recognized with this win is a huge achievement for all of us. It means we are doing our jobs well.”

In partnership with on-site diver operator Ocean Frontiers, the Compass Point Dive Resort provides an exceptional dive vacation for travelers who want to experience the quieter side of Grand Cayman and who want the freedom to explore the 55 pristine dive sites of the East End.  Environmentally conscious travelers appreciate that the dive resort and Ocean Frontiers take steps to reduce their impact on the environment, conserve water and reduce energy consumption. For commitment to conservation and preservation of the natural environment, Compass Point has also been awarded the Green Globe Certification, and the Cayman Islands Tourism Association’s CEPTS Environmental Stewardship Award.

"Beyond the amazing work of our team, we’ve also made improvements to the beach and shoreline of the resort to boost our guest’s experience in the Caribbean sun,” said Broadbelt. “For our divers, the brand new 'limo-style' custom dive boats are the equivalent of flying first class."

Compass Point accommodations are spacious, well designed, inviting and comfortable. Each unit has a private balcony or patio. Ocean Frontiers offers “roll out of bed and onto the waiting dive boat” valet diving and top-notch dive boats.
