“Great home base to explore Cayman from”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The other reviews on here are a bit dated going back to 2008. Something must have changed since our stay was excellent and we didn't have any of the issues other reviewers mentioned. The units are managed by different groups and owned by different people so perhaps thats the difference? We stayed in Unit B4 and it was very tastefully done, clean and had all the amenities of a home away from home.

Poinsettia is located on 7 mile beach right next to the well known restaurant "The Wharf." Right off the beach in front of the condo is a wreck you can snorkel to and there's easy access to the water from multiple locations. We've seen amazing things right off the shore in front of the condo as good as anything you'd see at Governors Reef of Cemetery Reef.

The pool was great and felt like a bath tub after being in the ocean (ocean was 82 when we went). There's an outdoor shower and plenty of chairs and privacy. We were often the only people by the pool.

Each unit has a parking space assigned. If you have more than one car for some reason that can get tricky.

We ate out a lot as the island has a lot to offer in world class dining (and prices!) but we also balanced that with breakfasts and lunches at the condo and the full kitchen had everything we needed for that.

For diving we used Neptune's Divers (http://www.neptunesdivers.com). They'll pick you up right at the condo and bring you back. They're a great bunch, safety conscious but fun!
In full disclosure we were a guest of the owner.

Room Tip: The condo we stayed in was unit B4. It has 2 bedrooms and a pullout couch. A/C was great in the unit...

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2008

We arrived at the condo at 10:30 on a Saturday night and, when the light was switched on, there were many cockroaches on the kitchen floor, on the kitchen countertops and in the adjoining bathroom. A call to the manager resulted in having the condo sprayed on Monday morning (a horrible weekend in the meantime). We saw dead or semidead cockroaches right through until Friday. What a horrible experience. It prettt much spoiled our vacation.
Caymanvillas, the lessor, was very little help. They were very blase about the whole affiar and didn't even apologize for our problems. There is no reason for cockroaches in any rental property if proper spraying is done. Never, Never rent at Poinsetta. In fact, I would never use Cayman Villas again.
