“Great Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stayed in the Marriott for 4 nights over the Labor Day weekend for my husband's birthday and we made reservations back in April so we were a little upset when we checked in and they said there were no king bedrooms available. They put us in a room with 2 queen beds for the first night and said we could move to king room the next day. It wasn't the end of the world but we couldn't unpack and spread out because we knew we had to change rooms. As other reviewers have mentioned, they are undergoing a needed renovation on the top floors but the main areas are very well maintained and clean. Our room was very clean but the furnishings were probably in need up updating. They have a spa and dive shop onsite but we didn't use either. We scuba dove 2 days with Don Foster's (wow, they are great- picked us up from the hotel and brought us back each time!) We snorkeled out front of the hotel and saw some beautiful fish, only problem was a 4-5 ft barracuda lurking on the ocean side of the reef balls. The location of this resort is very convenient to other restaurants & shopping. As others mentioned, the food on property is expensive but we felt it was inline with other fine dining restaurants on the island. The breakfast buffet at the Marriott was so fabulous- for $50 we ate like a king and queen and we were full until dinner. We went to a nearby liquor store for a couple bottles of wine for our room so we didn't have to buy from their bar the whole time. We enjoyed our stay at the Marriott and loved the little slice of paradise we found in the Grand Caymans!

The hotel is well maintained and was undergoing renovations on the top floors. Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. No one more helpful than Ollie the bartender. He really went out of his way to ensure our comfort and enjoyment of our vacation. Ollie is the best.

The rooms are nice but are in need of renovation which the hotel is in the process of doing. The room had a clock radio with an iPod port so that you can play music in your room. The beach is awesome and there are plenty of activities for someone to do.

I would definitely recommend the Marriott Grand Cayman Beach Resort.

Room Tip: There's only one ice machine on each floor which makes for a long walk to and from if you're...

Just returned from our stay at the Marriott. I visited years ago and there was virtually no beach. That has all changed with the off shore reef and lovely beach. The water is crystal clear and there were fish to snorkel with thanks to the new reef. The resort is remodeling the top floors but we were on the first and second floor and had no noise issues at all. The lobby is fun and inviting. The beach side terrace restaurant and beach bar were wonderful ! It is a beautifully done top name resort but what made our stay so exceptional was hands down the fabulous customer service by the staff. Every staff member we encountered went above and beyond to be helpful and make our stay wonderful. If I had a dollar for every time a staff member would say " let me help you...you're on vacation" I could have payed for my entire stay. The management of this hotel is doing an extraordinary job with staff training. We stay at Marriott's , Westins, Hyatt's and this resort had the best overall customer service. There are many beautiful resorts to stay at on Grand Cayman or other islands but I would return here because the staff made our stay so nice! I was on Maui this past year and neither the Marriott or Westin could even come close to how nice the staff was here. Julie from the lobby bar was fantastic. She went above and beyond. The young doorman helped us with our car when we couldn't get it started. Each day he would recognize us and offer to help us in some way. Front line PR should use him as an example.
I could go on and on....I travel multiple times a year and this tops my list ! This was a girl's vacation but I can't wait to return with my husband.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly remodeled rooms if you go a few months from now.

I did enjoy my stay at this resort, the concierge were really helpful in setting us up for excursions and or directing us to the nearest restaurants/nightlife..Make sure you visit the turtle farm and swim with the dolphins, they are a cab ride away and right across the st from each other. The beach was beautiful but filled up quickly, to get a nice seat you have to wake up early. I also really enjoyed the complementary beverage and rum cake when you check in. Rooms are decent, we had a garden view and we literally were stuck in front of a tree. The cool thing is that an Iguana lived in the tree and would travel up to our floor everyday and we got some cool pictures. I love cayman island and although i would prefer to probably stay at a 'nicer' hotel in the future, in regards to budget on an already expensive island, Marriot is your way to go.

Room Tip: Dont get a garden view room, pay the extra and treat yourself to an ocean view. By far on of the bes...

The top two floors in this hotel are undergoing renovation. We knew this every minute we were in our room during the day because it was happening right above our 2nd floor room. The mamager sent us various trays of food and wine, and took 1 nights cost off our bill, but the noise continued. I am not just talking regular construction noise, think drilling into cement floor , right over our ceiling.It started at 7:30 am , so sleeping after that was impossible. The only thing we could do was to stay out of the room during the day. There were no rooms to move to. The hotel is located on a very busy street, near very few stores or restaurants. At certain times of the day, it was very hard to croos the street. On the plus side, having the hotel only with half the rooms available made the beach and other facilities far less crowded. The people who work there were very friendly, but just didn't seem to know what to do about the noise. The beach was fant
astic, the best part of the hotel. Except for bars, little goes on at night that we could find. The Stingray city is not to be missed. Would we go back? Probably not, but it was owrth the trip to go once.

Room Tip: Choose first floor until construction is completed.

very friendly service and hospitality. Chamber maids were excellent with providing us with extra toiletries like shampoo and conditioner as I have waste length long hair. I would recommend this place to every one.

Room Tip: We stayed in a luxury suite. we found the room more than adequate.
