The hotel is fairly basic and the aircon is not always coping well. On the upside, it is set in a beautiful location on the beach -- though beware of mosquitos after the sunset. Sunset cove is isolated from other hotels on the island but you can rent bikes and the friendly local restaurant offers simple and effective dishes. The... More

We are not very demanding, but this is VERY basic accommodations. We could count on our fingers everything in our room: 1 bed, 1 chair, 1 dresser, 1 bar of soap, etc. Yes, you have the basics, but nothing more. The wall air conditioner was loud, but necessary, as this end of the "bay" seems to receive very little breeze.... More

Sadly, we only booked one night on Little Cayman, but were fortunate to stay at Sunset Cove, We were greeted at the airport by David and given the "10 Cent Tour" on the 5 minute drive to the resort. Not fancy resort by any stretch, but it is clean, David is more than accommodating and was good enough to arrange... More

Dave the manager was very attentive and helpful. The Latina ladies are friendly and smiley. The hotel is the further than the other ones from the only shop in island but that was what we wanted tranquility! It's in front of Owen island ! Bonus easy to kayak.

Sunset Cove was so relaxing. This place was quiet and serene with the most amazing beach right outside your door. You can lay in the hammock all day or snorkel and kayak in the cove for some more action. Dave the owner and Jesse the cook are awesome. We spent the week getting to know them. We all went night...

We stopped here for breakfast and fell in love. The food was fresh and prepared to order and served on a screen porch overlooking the gentle blue-green water on the cove. Everything you think of for an island getaway is here. Fancy? No, but just what the Dr ordered if you want to beat the crowds and go off the... More

The Sunset Cove is located about three miles east of the airport. My wife and I stayed here for nine consecutive nights. Dave, the owner, is a tremendous host and he will go out of his way to make sure that all of his guests are taken care of and have a good time on Little Cayman. The hotel and... More

First off I will say David did a wonderful job of making the stay the best it possibly could be. Location is a little over 3 miles east of the airport and the beach (cove) view is very nice and peaceful.

This is a place to go to experience Little Cayman Caribbean Style! Very quiet, beautiful sunsets, casual accommodations. Leave your mainland expectations at home! Not a fancy hotel with bars or a swimming pool, but a superb manager David who is very accommodating in many ways. Excellent place to enjoy various water sports or just relaxing in a hammock!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An idyllic place for couples, friends and families on Little Cayman. A friendly, serene, relaxed place to chill. We have lots of fun things to do directly from the white, sandy beach at Sunset Cove. We have kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards and luxury beach floats available for rental, so you have everything you need right at the resort. You can kayak over to Owen Island and snorkel or hang out on the beach. South Hole Sound is a lovely, reef-protected, sandy, shallow area with ideal conditions to enjoy most any watersports. We also have bicycles available for 1/2 day or full day rental. There's something for everyone! Or on a lazy day, you can indulge in a massage or lounge in one of the hammocks at the resort. For your dining pleasure, we also have The Beach Bum Cafe which is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner! ... more   less
