Our room was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was huge. We had a tiny patio with a tiny view of the ocean and shipping containers. We were only there 1 night before we moved into our condo. There is practically no beach and it is iron shore. Very little sand on the beach and under the... More

We had a taxi ride to the resort and then spent the day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful island.

Came here with a couple of girlfriends looking for a cheaper option than 7mile beach. The hotel was lovely with decent food and clean rooms. Hammocks were heaven! There is a free shuttle into town which we used daily, however you are on your own to get back and this is where the issue is. Although it is a very... More

The hotel is decent enough. Pool area is okay but not enough umbrellas. Restaurant does not have many healthy options and the service is slow, but at least it offers all meals and they are willing to make changes to menu items if you request it. The treadmill in the fitness center was cracked down the middle, without any sort... More

The resort is very peaceful.We rented a third floor condo which overlooked the golf course and ocean.

Stayed here for one night before going to a rental apartment. It would be nice if we rented a car, but they do have a shuttle that leaves until 5, and comes back until 7? (one guy at the front desk wasn't even sure of the times). There isn't much around, and The Blue Iguana restaurant wasn't great, so you... More

My wife and I have visited Grand Cayman many times always staying on seven mile beach. We were a little concerned about the hotels' distance from the "beach". However, the other features of the hotel more than made up for a 10 min. drive to the ocean side of the island. First, our room was enormous and clean and very... More
