Noise at grand cayman beach suites

Hi there we are planning on coming to cayman at the end of August and like the look of the grand cayman beach suites ( ESP since we stayed here as the Hyatt years ago and it would be fun to bring out kids back) however some reviews I have read mention construction at the next door building and as we are renovating at home we are actually getting away to avoi major construction noise! I was wondering if anyone can tell me how bad it is and if it is where else would you recommend with a 9 and 8 year old?

Many thanks in advance

Have you thought of staying in a condo? It keeps the cost down, provides a lot more space for you and your children to spread out, and has amenities like full kitchen, a pool (or two in some complexes) with just as easy access to the beach, if that's what you need. The beach tends to be less populated at those, too (although that should be so much of an issue in August).

Not sure about yours, but kids can be picky eaters - knowing you can stick up on things they like to eat takes the pressure off of trying to always find something out for them.

Happy memories of the old Hyatt . . . we had many wonderful vacations there!! My place on the island is on Britannia Canal behind the old Hyatt. We use the beach by the BS regularly and catch boats there often. The noise has not been an issue. We were down last in May and it looks as though the outside of the new "Watercolours" is just about finished anyway! If you want to stay in the central area, check out a place like Lacovia -- older property (but completely redone after Ivan which is around the same date many of the newer places were built). It has a huge beachfront for the number of units and is ideally located. We stayed there a few times before we bought our place. You could also check on caymanvacations.com, caymanvacation.com and cicondos.com, but if noise is your only drawback to the GCBS, it shouldn't be a problem.

We stayed at the beach suites several weeks ago. Although we saw the construction next door it never bothered us in the least. For two nights the door to our room faced the construction but we never heard a thing inside our room. Hope you enjoy your stay!!

The Beach Suites is our favorite place to stay in the Caymans.. We stayed in a room facing the construction and barely heard anything. We never stay anywhere else but the Beach Suites even though we can afford the pricer places to stay, it's perfect here. The beach is never crowded and you never have to fight for chairs. Actually just booked another trip there for Oct!

Not sure if you ended up going with BeachSuites but saw you mentioned Beachcomber. If you're considering condos, check out caymanvacations, caydirect, caymanvacation as a few places to get pricing on other condos along SMB. You may be fortunate in finding a special being run during your time frame.

Just noticed some of these were mentioned previously!

There are many excellent condos available and with 2 kids, you will appreciate the added space and the full kitchen. You can check the sites mentioned above and also, VRBO where you may be able to get a better discount. There are many excellent properties in the central area of SMB with wonderful beaches but if you want to pay less you can look for condos in the north part of SMB.
