My wife and I own 3 timeshare weeks at Morritt's, and we've been going there once or twice a year for many years. We love being able to stay in a beachfront facility in the Caribbean for so little money.
We just got back from a two week stay at Morritt's Grand. We had a one bedroom unit on the ground floor. We like the ground floor, because we can walk out the back door right onto the beach.
The units at Morritt's are nothing fancy, but they're serviceable. The two Grand buildings are made of concrete- inside and out. So there's not a lot of charm with concrete walls, but we understand that they were built to withstand hurricane's.
I have a few issue's with the rooms, and I hope that Morritt's will eventually get around to addressing these issue's:
1. The mattress on the bed needs to be replaced (room 7105).
2. The furniture needs updating.
3. There was very low water pressure in the sink faucet.
4. The TV in the bedroom should be replaced with a modern flat screen.
5. The console/dresser in the bedroom is the wrong type for the space.
Having said all that I want to say that we still really enjoy staying at Morritt's.
Now for the good stuff. The beach is really nice. The snorkeling is very good right in front of the resort. The restaurants are good- though we tend to cook a lot in our room. The staff (for the most part) is very friendly. You get daily maid service (which is not common in Timeshares). There is a dive shop on the premises (Red Sail-Tortuga Divers). We went on two, three hour snorkel cruises during our time there for $25 each (special rate). We very much enjoyed these cruises inside the reef. There is a small shopping center across the street including a small grocery store, a liquor store, a gift shop, and a restaurant (Italian Kitchen).
Morritt's is located on the quiet East end of Grand Cayman. My wife and I like to get away from the noise and bustle. So Morritt's suits us well. Some people may find Morritt's to be too quiet. There are a few night time activities (i.e., Karaoke night, etc), but for the most part, people tend to tuck in early at Morritt's.
Morritt's has some daytime activities too (i.e., Bingo, beach volleyball, etc). So it can be fun for families.
Morritt's has three nice pools. The Park pool is very quiet. The Premier pool has a swim up bar, and an interesting setting and design. The Grand pool also has a swim up bar, and a great beach location. The Grand pool is the most popular.
I highly recommend renting a car if staying at Morritt's. The resort is rather isolated on the island. So if you want to see the island, you'll need a car since paying for a taxi can be prohibitively expensive. Morritt's does have occasional bus rides into to Georgetown, but I still think a car is the best way to go.
Grand Cayman isn't the most beautiful island in the Caribbean, but it does have some of the best diving and snorkeling. My wife and I have snorkeled many of the snorkel locations, and I can honestly say that the snorkeling is very good to excellent. I fell that the ocean is the main attraction on the island, but many people will say that Seven Mile beach is the main attraction. Seven Mile beach is on the trendy West end of the island North of the Capital of Georgetown. The beach is beautiful for sure, and the sunsets are hard to beat.
In summary- if you're looking for a place where you can plop on the beach and tune out the world, then I recommend Morritt's.
I would recommend staying in Building 7 (also known as the Florence building). Morritt's is con...
