We have come to Grand Cayman almost every year since 1989, and had noticed the Grandview on beach walks and scuba diving excursions from the nearby dock. Although part of the shoreline in front of the Grandview is rocky, there is enough sandy area to enter the water to swim, and to exit afterward....and the presence of the rocky areas makes this part of Seven Mile Beach (which is open to the public for the entire length) less crowded and quieter. So, we decided to try it this year, and we were delighted!
We rented two condo units and came with our daughter and her family. The condos are spacious, clean and well-maintained. Kitchens are well-equipped and everything works. Big flat panel TVs in our two units (although some other units have smaller, older TVs). All units have screened patios with ocean views. The pool is large and spotlessly clean and there is a big hot tub. The beach is beautiful, and the rocky area is only at the waterline, so there is lots of sandy area to sit or lie down if you wish.
The entire staff is very responsive and eager to make your stay as pleasant as humanly possible. We will be coming back next year!
