Halloweeny Pirate Fun

Trick or Treat Team, Lyall and Michelle are ready for some spookiness today (below left). And here is Lyall and the rest of the Guest Welcome Team (above right) at the Orientation meeting yesterday morning – greeting this week’s guests with a ho, ho, ho, a bottle of rum AND for somebody…a couple of free [...]

Busy week for the kids and Leona!

It’s been a busy week for the activities director. Leona has been bombarded with kids from all ages. So far she has done 2 days of t-shirt painting and today the kids are doing deco-podge with cigar boxes, and there will probably be another arts and crafts day tomorrow!! This photo shows a few of [...]

Prime Fishing Conditions for Birds

A large, wide-winged sea bird of the tropical seas (wing span up to 6 feet), the Frigate Bird soars for hours on updrafts and may stay at sea all night or for days. The picture of 2 squiggles is the best of a bad bunch of photos as I tried to catch a group of [...]

Hands up, who wants to ride on a Star?

Calm seas and cool waters held strong temptation for the boys today. As Captain Joey and Super Dave of Ecoventures tested out the brand new ‘Star’ inflatables (now available for hire from the Ecoventures beach hut along with inflatable windsurfs and 2-man-kayaks), a group of our guests, not to be outdone in the fun-stakes, gathered [...]

Lady in Red – Wilma

“Gossip is just news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.” Liz Smith I’ve got a sneaky feeling that some of the sensational tendencies of the world media has everyone wondering ‘Did Cayman sustain a lot of damage from Hurricane Wilma?’.

On Friday, staff at The Reef wore pins in a show of support for one of our colleagues who is currently undergoing treatment for Breast Cancer and of support for the month-long awareness campaign. The [...]

Ultimate Combo

Happy Hour at Castro’s Hideaway combined with a sublime sunset atmosphere is a winner in my book – just had to share this one. (The photo is slightly blurred to help you get the true happy hour ‘vision’ – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.) Bill and Rose Bertone from Cape Cod and [...]

Birthday Bonanza

No it’s not a special offer – but it’s a special week. Special to us because there are an unusual amount of staff birthdays this week. Today is Tom’s birthday (TomCayman)and Sally’s birthday (Odd Blog) – it is also Linera’s birthday (although she left the reef last month after many years of service but I [...]

More Accessibility

Today’s picture shows you the newly enhanced Condo #101. We’ve added extra accessibility as a smooth concrete sloped-access now leads from the Ocean-front footpath, onto the large raised patio of the Unit. Whilst Castro’s Hideaway (The Reef Resort’s own restaurant) and Castro’s Beach Bar were designed with access for wheelchair users, we’re always keen to [...]
