“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This hotel is stunning! Our room overlooked the "quiet pool," and was steps away from the beach. The beach was beautiful and clean with plenty of chairs and towels. It was heavenly. The food is a bit pricey, but we did eat one meal at the grill by the pool and it was delicious! The staff is friendly and helpful and really treated us well. The housekeeping is fantastic and the turn down service was right on time every night. The only complaint I had, was our bed was not all that comfortable. Maybe the mattress needs to be flipped, but it was a little lumpy in places. However, that is the ONLY thing I can say is a negative about this hotel. It really is a lovely property! If you want to eat somewhere other than the hotel, there are plenty of restaurants a few blocks away and you can walk or cab it. I will definitely be staying here again!

This is a great hotel but way too expensive from the in room mini bar to the spa. The staff is wonderful and attentive. The rooms are a good size and well appointed. The hotel is very big and you have the option of two different pools. The better pool is on the ocean side. Room view not very nice if you end up on the other side of the hotel and it's a long walk to the pool.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view room.

This was our first trip to the Caymans. The Ritz offered a unique experience with such a friendly, helpful staff and beautiful rooms with great views. Extremely clean rooms and the beach was picturesque. DH was able to get a spa treatment and said the facilities were nice and the quality of the treatment was worth the price.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Just stayed here for three nights. Pros - very friendly staff, great spa, lovely rooms, great food. With the exception of one overly salted mahi mahi burger, the food was really delicious. Beach was lovely, but they don't really get credit for that. If anything, the hotel allows too many floating contraptions and jet skis to clutter up the beach.

Cons - the place is huge. If you get a room at the far end of the hotel, you will spend a lot of time walking down long hallways. It is crazy expensive. Gratuity and fees slapped on everything. My massage was great, but 240 bucks? I don't mind paying for a great message, but I really think that pushes it.

Given that the hotel charges the very top tier 5 star rates, I question a few decisions. First, way too much hawking merchandise in the hallways. I felt like I was walking through a mall the entire trip. I don't need to constantly look at watches and jewelry. Even the art for sale in the "art gallery" was too much. Just absolutely crammed with art. Bizarre bazar.

Most annoying: One day I left my cash in my room, but wanted to tip the beach attendant. I walked the 5 minute walk to the front desk, to ask for a few bucks to be put to my room, rather than walk the 10 minute walk to my bedroom. The woman at the desk, a little frostily, informed me it was not their policy to give cash on the room tab. Seriously? At a 5 star hotel, costing almost a thousand a day, they can't front me 10 bucks to help me tip their employees? This strikes me as the most obnoxious sort of corporate bean-counting.

Final assessment: this place is a soulless, corporate cash-machine, but it is great for families with lots of kids, conferences, weddings, etc. if you can get group rates and have a large group, I would consider it.

Room Tip: Try not to get in the back of the hotel! Too far from beach and restaurants.

We stayed at the Ritz for a long weekend in April. Direct 2.5-hour flight from Atlanta and then a 15-minute drive from the airport to the hotel makes it a solid choice for a quick getaway. As various other reviews have pointed out, the service is impeccable. Checked in on a Thursday and several valets were calling me by name on Saturday. We stayed in a garden view room, and while slightly dated, it was spacious with top-notch finishes. From room to pool was only about a five-minute walk - not sure why so many reviews have keyed on that aspect as a negative. We're more pool people than beach people, but I have to say Seven Mile Beach, especially in front of the Ritz, is best stretch of shoreline that I've encountered. No waves, clear blue water and soft white sand. We currently live two hours from the North Carolina coast and there's no comparison in the quality of beaches. We have a variety of cocktails from the pool bar (Bar Jack) that were both strong and expensive ($20 each after tip). But then again, everything on Grand Cayman is expensive. Gas is over $7 a gallon and most lunches for two were $30 a head or more. I would recommend renting a car. I've heard plenty of solid reviews for the Ritz restaurants, but there's a treasure trove of quality restaurants within 15 minutes that are equally appetizing. Sunshine Grill, Tukka and Calypso Grill were all excellent dining options. Foster's grocery is within walking distance several 100 yards south of Ritz and has every item your local grocery store carries. Great location and top-notch service earns the Ritz a strong recommendation.

The best AND the most expensive. But, worth it. Very attentive staff. Rooms were clean. All the restaurants were great. Buffet on Sunday was perfect. Nice location. Beautiful beach. No complaints here!

Room Tip: Go off season. Its cheaper!
