Very nice staff, every was awesome !! From the front desk to the gardner who climbed a coconut tree and cracked open a few coconuts for us, he also had the great suggestion of walking over to the bar by the pool and having the bartender pour some local rum in the fresh coconut.........amazing and super refreshing.

The hotel is out of the way. The staff was top notch. Grand daughter had her 3rd birthday and staff brought her a balloon. Suite was great and pool was good. Front desk staff great. Shuttle to 7 miles Beach came when it said it would and this made easy to go there.

At the end of May we booked into this hotel for 4 nights as a cost effective way to extend our holiday before checking into the Ritz Carlton for 6 nights on my company reward trip. We knew it wasn't on 7 mile beach but were swayed by the prices.It was fantastic! Check in was quick and easy, room lovely,... More

Although this place is off the beaten path (Seven-Mile Beach), it was well worth the drive. The hotel was renovated within the last year and was a great place to stay. The restaurant onsite was ok, but would highly recommend upgrading to a suite with a full kitchen (fridge, stove, oven, dishes, dishwasher, washer/dryer) and going to the grocery store.... More

This is a great value for the type of independent vacationer who will research and plan your own activities, rent a car, and then spend most of your time away from the hotel enjoying what Grand Cayman has to offer -- but who also wants the convenience of a full-service hotel and restaurant -- a nice place to relax in...

Being owners of the resort, this was our 6th visit since 2000. It is just how we remembered it 4 years ago but with some excellent upgrades. The reception was totally renovated for the better, bar area, beach area, gardens.... Some reviews mention a musty smell, that has been there since 2000, its not musty by all means. The staff...

This was the perfect place to unwind and relax. My husband and I stay for 3 nights and had dinner at the resort, the Blue Iguana Grill. The chef's special was a wonderful seasoned tuna and fresh vegetables. We had the coconut shrimp and the conch - stay with the shrimp as the conch is too breaded. We had lunch... More

My family was "placed" at the Holiday Inn Resort by United Airlines due to a mechanical failure that forced us to spend an extra 2 days on Grand Cayman. This could have been a disaster, however, the management and staff at the Holiday Inn Resort treated us like royalty! The front desk team (we had to interact with both day... More

I was so pleasantly surprised with this hotel! We do not like to travel the main brands, but this hotel was excellent. Each unit has its own sence of privacy on the patio/lanai; meaning you can't see your neighbors. We had a gorgeous ocean view from the seconod floor. The evenings in the hammocks at by the pool are magical.... More

Very nice hotel that was terribly crowded. The rook was more like an apartment with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. The restaurant onsite was good and not too pricey. The place can be difficult to find the first time and I would definitely rent a car. The beach is too rocky for swimming, however seven mile beach... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the northern coast of The Grand Cayman Island, The Grand Caymanian Resort takes any ordinary vacation and will transform your trip into the ultimate restful, romantic, and fun getaway. Just off the beaten path in Crystal Harbour overlooking the beautiful North Sound, our resort provides quiet tranquility for those seeking relaxation. Lay out by the pool, or take a leisurely swim in the stunning, crystal clear ocean. Our property also features amenities for those looking for a bit of fun. Rent from our on-site Jetski rentals, or grab some bikes and explore the Island at a slower place with the entire family. Guests can choose from modern rooms and suites, featuring balconies and gorgeous views of our beautiful island. The sun rises directly over the center of the resort each morning, so catch the sunrise, and then catch up on sleep later with a little poolside nap. With a private, secluded location, rentals for fun in the sun, and close proximity to Seven Mile Beach, our Grand Caymanian Resort is the perfect vacation spot for families, honeymooners, and local staycations. We look forward to welcoming you with our warmest hospitality soon. ... more   less
