We were there for 6 nights and used the spacious suites with well equiped kitchen as a starting point to explore the Island. The gym is almost non-existent with 2 tread mills. Getting a car is crucial to explore the Island and to get off the resort, which is surrounded by a golf course. Good supermarkets nearby (by car). The... More

Hotel is located off the main roads. So you have to drive through a golf course every time you want to leave. It wouldn't be so annoying if they didn't have so many speed bumps along the way. The hotel itself is nothing special. You get what you paid for. For those watching budget on an expensive island, it will... More

We came in late at night, checked in we had dinner at Blue Iguana. A little pricey, but grateful. Our tv wasn't working, we let the front desk know. It got fixed. They have a shuttle that dropped us off to take a walk around the town area. The shuttle will also take you to the food store, which was... More

This was our second stay at this hotel (March 2015). The first time was actually quite pleasant and we were pretty excited to be staying again. The whole experience was really just bad right from the start. The front office actually smelled like a barn. We were joking that there could legitimately have been stables in the back room. We...

This hotel is located on the opposite side of Seven Mile Beach, but why pay more to stay on the crowded side? This hotel has great rooms, comfy beds, a top-notch restaurant, a nice pool, and a pier with great snorkeling opportunities. Add to that, they have a shuttle that runs to the port side and several points in between... More

I needed an affordable, safe hotel on short notice. The Holiday Inn Resort Grand Cayman, exceeded my expectations. The food was very good. I'm not a fan of all inclusive resorts, because I like having options, in addition to enjoying local foods prepared by locals. Every morning I had a mango smoothie. Very delicious!!

The Holiday Inn is not a luxury hotel but this chain is focuses around simplicity and value. The hotel was very quiet at this time of year and it was the rainy season but there was little rain and lots of sun. The bar/restaurant was actually great serving good quality drinks and food. The menu is not extensive and has... More
