It was our first time to Grand Cayman and we lucked out choosing Castaways Cayman Beach Resort to stay at. Just like other reviewers said, this is the quiet side of the island. We rented a 1 bedroom unit for my husband, my teenage daughter and myself over Christmas vacation. For a busy week, the resort never felt crowded and you never had to fight for lounge chairs. The unit was clean, large and well equipped. The owner, Lyle, couldn't have been more accommodating and made our trip a success. We stopped at the grocery store right near the airport to shop for the week. We ate breakfast and lunch on our lovely balcony overlooking the ocean and ate at some great restaurants for dinner every night. The clean, warm, ocean is steps from the unit and the water is beautiful. I do recommend water shoes because it's not a white sand bottom everywhere, but you can find spots to stand where it is.It's a reef and you can snorkel right there. The location is great, right on the property of The Reef hotel which allows use of their pools and other amenities. Their staff was friendly and helpful. Their concierge can book you dinner reservations, snorkling trips, etc. Accross the street is a liquor store, mini grocery store, good Italian Restaurant and souvenir/beach clothing shop. You can rent windsurfers, kayaks and other water sports stuff at the hotel next door, all within walking distance. We went to the crowded side of the island one day and boy were we greatful to be returning to the quiet East Side of the island. Tukka is an awesome restaurant nearby and they will pick you up and drop you off if you don't have a car. We are definately going back and staying here!
