“Our favorite spot in the whole world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2011

We stayed in the Britannia Vilas. We love how large and roomy they are. The terrace looks out over the canal where we have breakfast. Love the beach across the street, Deckers, Abacus, and Prime and most of all Hi Tide the local band that plays at Deckers. Couldnt be better. Also Tiffany does a great job with reservations as does Debbie in the office and her staff.

Stayed February 2011, traveled with family

My family and I stayed in a huge three bedroom, four bath condo at Britannia over New Years. The condo looked professionally decorated and was in a great location. We enjoyed complete privacy but were just minutes from everything. The gym and the beach facilities are a short walk but they are very nice. We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub right outside our condo. We always had the entire pool area to ourselves - it was great. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a restaurant on the premises with good food at decent prices. We found it to be one of the best values in Cayman.

The Britannia is wonderful, as is the Brittania restaurant on-site, and we will return this January, but be warned: the adjoining Hyatt Resort (where my wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in 2002) suffered mightily during Hurricane Ivan. The resort is actually in two parts straddling West Bay Road, separate from the Britannia. The portion of the hotel on the inland side was still completely closed as of last visit (Jan 2007) with much damage to be seen. Only the Hyatt Beach Suites is open on the beach side. What does all this mean? Mainly that some of the photos you may find online of the hotel, like the swim-up bar and the lush hotel grounds, (exactly where Gene Hackman wooed Jeanne Tripplehorn in the movie "The Firm") are actually in the portion that is now closed. But not to worry: Hemingway's (the Hyatt's fabulous beachfront restaurant) is still there, and there are two smaller pools at the Beach Suites that are great. Bottom line: Britannia and the Hyatt are first rate, even if some of the lushess and feeling of tropical paradise vanished in the terror of Ivan.

  • Liked — quality furnishings, care of staff and location location location
  • Disliked — the hulk of the closed Hyatt next door is a little creepy at first, since we once stayed there, but we will return

We have stayed both in a Phase II villa and a King's Court villa (2042) on many occasions. We love it. Clean, modern, upscale welcome feeling. Both have been along the canal and sitting out on the balcony hearing the breeze in the trees and watching the occasional boat in the canal is great. We have also stayed in other properties directly on the beach, but really like the exclusitivity, privacy and quietness Brtiannia affords. (Some nights were noisy along the beach). Each group of villas come with a pool and spa and they are practically empty. No problems with chairs etc. We often walk up the canal to the beach (it is a bit of a hike) but a beautiful, tranquil way to get a little exercise. The Hyatt beach facilities (and other facilities) are included, so you have all the amenities of a resort while staying in your own private little bit of heaven. We always had a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom and even with 6 people had tons of room. Large bedrooms, beautiful fitted baths, kitchen, laundry room, dining room, living room. Phase II had one huge L shaped balcony, Kings Court had 3 balconies. Highest ratings.

  • Liked — It is a beautiful, quiet location on Seven Mile Beach, the bustling part of Grand Cayman.
  • Disliked — That the main part of the Hyatt has not reopened since Hurricane Ivan.
  • Tips/Secrets — If you like nightlife and partytime, it is not for you. If you enjoy good wine, fantastic food, and a serene, safe location, it is for you.

We just returned from a week in Grand Cayman and we stayed at the Britannia Villas at the Hyatt. Since there are no reviews I thought I'd be the first to let everyone in on it..the Villas are beautiful! We stayed in villa 2030 it's in the King's Court section, closer to the single homes, they look newer and are a prettier design from the outside than the units when you enter the grounds. It was huge, clean and modern. It had 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, the master suite with a jacuzzi tub king bed and walk in closet. Marble floors through out and granite kitchen, 2 huge decks overlooking the canal. The tennis courts were just outside as well as the golf course, and the spa and one of the pools was just steps away.
The only drawback is having to drive to the beach but there's no problem getting parking at the Hyatt. Pool towels were provided at the villa and you could get your towels for the beach at the Hyatt so you didn't have to carry them over.
