The people make this the place to go. Gay and her crew are amazing. The whole crew is very environmentally aware, which is so important for the future of Little Cayman. There are only 10 well kept rooms. Some do not have AC, but are equipped with fans and the marvelous ocean breeze. The beach is not a sandy beach,...

You reviewed the wrong Pirate's Pointe Resort. The one you wanted is in the Cayman's which is Pirates Point Resort without an e on Point.

our family does a reunion every year. This get together usually consists of +/- 20 adults plus 6 (and growing) kids. In past years we have stayed in Sebastian, Steinhatchee, St Augustine, Jensen Beach.... This vacation, over the Labor Day weekend, was by far, the most enjoyable experience we have had by far. The facility itself was not "fancy" but...

Only had a couple days off so headed here for a little r & r. Relaxing, pretty quiet. Stayed in the 2 bedroom with the private pool. Very clean and lots of space. Well pleased. Did not come to fish but was a great option based on distance and allowing to bring our 2 relaxed doggies.

Made a reservation through Expedia. Expedia takes a credit card at time of reservation to hold the reservation. Pirate's Pointe ended up charging me for a nights stay and then, after we cancelled well within the stated date on Expedia, Pirate's Pointe refused to refund the money. To be fair I think they have their property listed on several sites...

Thank you for your review. However, some of the information is not exactly correct. I never received a letter from Expedia saying, the charges were incorrect. Honestly just the opposite. They sent me a confirmation with the "Cancellation and the Amount to be Charged", per policy guidelines. I'm not sure what you received as I know I sent you nothing....

Didn't come to fish, just to catch up with an old friend and relax. Lived in Florida years ago and enjoyed the South Florida--Keys environment and have missed it on subsequent visits to Orlando area. The landscaping and crushed shell driveways of Pirate's Pointe added to the feeling of being in nature, away from the pavement and gridlock of modern...

We have been 2 times this year, this weekend will be our 3rd. It is relaxing, right on the water, wonderful clean facilities and awesome fishing!! Even if you don't have a boat its great to sit on the dock and fish from there. It definitely will be our home away from home!

If you like to fish and be on the water this is the place to go. Snuggled amidst fabulous landscaping with an old Florida feel. The accommodations are all massive and comfortable. The pool area is outstanding and the people are friendly and the owners Tammy and Tom are the best. As for the fishing we caught every species on...

We spent 4 days here on a recent visit to Ruskin. The close proximity to our son and his family made it a perfect spot. The cottage was very comfortable and quiet.

Spent 4 wonderful days here, really don't want to leave. If you want a peaceful low key out of the way spot , then this is the place for you.

Under new management so not that same as in the past. I stayed here before and enjoyed my stay. The previous owner made it a pleasant stay! New management was no where to be found many days.

I apologize for our absences as we were in the transition of selling our house in Lakeland and moving to Ruskin, to run Pirate's Pointe Resort. The previous owner assured us our guests would be taken care of and he would be on property to make sure that happened. We also have a receptionist working 8:30-12:00 and housekeeper daily. It...
