I read all the reviews and booked this room based mostly on that information. Our room was clean and modern. Our room only had a double bed which was not great, the room could have easily fit a King size no problem. The blinds in the room did not close properly or cover the windows sufficiently to block out the morning sun, I dont think we slept past 7am. The hotel does not have any facilities so you must factor that into your budget if you plan on using a gym etc. The biggest drawback for us is the location. Being in Boddentown we found ourselves driving an hour a day to get to the places we were spending most of our time. For some people this would be a plus but for us it was a downside. The beach is mostly for sitting at, the grass and rocks make this a snorkelling only type of area. Having said that the snorkelling here is very interesting and will satisfy most people. The view is spectacular from the rooms. I'm not sure how it would be when the inn is busy as people would be walking in front of your villa while at the pool. The biggest upside was the cleanliness, view and terrific staff. This hotel possibly has the best views in the world without paying outrageous prices for a private island style of hotel. Biggest downsides were the location to 7 mile beach, small bed. As for Grand Cayman itself the people are very friendly, you are not harassed by homeless people or people trying to sell you stuff. If you are good with your money and cook your own food, we did not find the island outrageously expensive. As for the price of beer try 345, its $6 for a 6 pack and its a great local beer.
