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

Staff needs additional customer service training on how to handle guest, transportation shuttle that is a convenience and lack of hot water. I would only stay here if I did not have any other options.

This hotel is clean, comfortable, and very affordable. It is located approximately 5 minutes drive off West Shore Rd./7M beach. IMO, a car is a must for convenience although the hotel does offer a shuttle service. The hotel has a pool and towels are always available. There is really no swimming beach to speak of, but a beautiful view of... More

This was an excellent property - perfectly situated on a beach for view, featured activities and daily shuttle service to other activities. Hotel is moderately priced and is modern and clean. I recommend it to anyone considering the Caymans.
