We were looking for an inexpensive place with AC as a home base for our dive trip. We found it at Eldemire's. But, there are a lot of better places to stay on the island if you can afford it. My wife would not have enjoyed Eldemires. It is more like a hostel than a hotel. But it was fine... More

We had missed our cruise ship departing from Miami, FL and had to fly to Grand Cayman to catch up with it...after two VERY long days of traveling and unplanned expenses we finally arrived in Georgetown. I called several local hotels and found them to be WAY overpriced($400-$600USD per night). Finally an employee at Marshall's car rental suggested Eldemire's. I... More

Stayed here for 2 nights after 12 nights driving the length of Cuba. The IDEAL location to finish our Caribbean island hop, a short walk southwards is a lovely beach at Smith`s Cove and 15 minutes the other way is Georgetown and the bus service all over the island. Tootie makes you feel SO at ease that we immediately adopted... More

I have been coming to Grand Cayman for 13 years and have now found my favourite place. Used to stay at Sunset House, but find the manager there to be quite rude, so went across the street this trip, to Eldemires. Best decision ever! There's only a few guest rooms, some being rented to residents, so it's extremely quiet. I... More

We had a great stay at Eldemire's! It's quiet & peaceful, while at the same time being only a short distance from town. It's also 'real Caribbean' which we find is much nicer than the much more expensive American-style hotels that one finds all along 7-mile beach. Eldemire's Tropical Island Inn has good facilities (kitchen for preparing meals, free tea... More

I had two nights at Eldemire's, being greeted by the owner(?) on arrival, but haven't seen her since. The place is very pleasant - clean, light, airy - the kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans etc, and free tea and coffee is available all the time. Town is a (hot) 20-25 minute walk away, but that's okay (when... More

i chose Eldemire's mainly because it was the cheapest option I could find on the internet. Which doesn't say very much, since hotel prices in Grand Cayman are in general ridiculously high. I paid 90 USD per night, which was quite a bit lower than even the least expensive of the more traditional hotels or resorts wanted. As someone else... More
