My girlfriend and I stayed at Eldemire's Inn for 7 days this January, and had a lovely time. As others in the comments say, this is not a place for the mindless tourists who need the comforts of a hotel and the hand-holding of tour managers and all-inclusive packages. This guesthouse is purely a home-base, out of which you organize... More

If you're the kind of traveler who stays in name-brand hotel chains, has never entered a grocery store in another country, and is used to 5 star accommodation, then Eldemire's Tropical Inn is not for you. If you're the kind of traveler who stays in local B&Bs or hostels, loves exploring local hangouts, and relishes the opportunity to get to... More

Overall it felt like a quiet little private retreat with just a hint of home. The inn is much larger than it appears but you can't really tell because most of the foliage gives many of the unit entrances a feel of secluded privacy when you come and go. We had a late evening arrival so check in for weary... More

Hi Thank so much for your lovely review about myself and the Inn.

The place is very quiet and you can sleep well, it's not too warm inside the house thanks to the trees surrounding the place, we had to keep the air conditioning at minimum if not powered off, which was surprising for the island's climate. The kitchen was well furnished and near the door, before entering the room there is a... More

Filthy, dusty living conditions. Air conditioners don't work right. 85 in your roon at night. Refrigerator doesn't keep any thing cold. Swimming pool filtration didn't work. Dead frog and crab in water. Bbq filthy, no propane. Weeds all over pool deck. Horribly maintained, thank god for motels at 7 mile beach

Want the quintessential cultural GC experience? Stay here. It's walking distance to Georgetown, Smith Cove, Sunset House, Art stores, etc. It's quaint, eclectic, and host is amazing. She leaves you space and room to breathe.

We stayed at Eldemire's Tropical Island Inn for a week in April, and had a great time! We've stayed on Grand Cayman before, mostly at The Retreat at Rum Point, so we knew our way around fairly well, although a lot has changed after 2005's Ivan! My husband, 2-year-old-son, mother and I all shared the pool-side self-catering suite. My son... More
