“Beautiful but secluded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2009

We were looking for seclusion so this resort was perfect. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was very good. The beach is considered a natual beach so if you like to swim in the ocean this is not the place. You can snorkel and there are a few spots that you can sit in the water but there is alot of rock and coral so it is not a beach to go to if you like to swim. If you are brave and want to attempt driving on the opposite side of the road then you should rent a car. To get from this resort and go to any attraction on the island is VERY expensive. Ect... if you wanted to swim with the stingrays it would cost you the excursion fee plus another $40 round trip per person to get there. Again if you want peace and quiet and do not plan on going anywhere this is the place to go. I would also suggest doing the all inclusive, it was absolutely worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2007

We went with all the hurricanes swirling around. The reef was very nice, the staff was wonderful and the rooms and views = priceless(beach front is the only way to go) All rooms were beach front. Workout room less to be desired. Not much for restaurants or on-sight amenities. 1 Beach bar and 1 restaurant at the time of our visit. At that time their was lots of rebuilding still going on, on both sides of the resort. I would say either stay in the city or come back here in 5 years when its cleaned up a bit more.

Went here a few years ago. The best part about this place is that all the units have an ocean room and access to the ocean is easy. The studio units have jacuzzi bathtubs. Great planned activities available at a price. Food and drinks were okay but quite expensive. You'll need to rent a car or be willing to shell out some cash to get to the resort and make excursions back towards the center of town. It is on a much quieter side of the island which a lot of people who had visited Cayman several times said they appreciated.
