Another Luxury Hotel on SMB>

So it looks like the old Pageant Beach site is going to be developed into a 10 story high-end hotel/condo complex. That lot has been vacant for a long time.

https:/…

Does anybody remember the old Pageant Beach hotel?

It burned down in 1975 which was my first trip to GC. But I have no memory of the hotel.

My parents and I stayed in the old Pageant Beach Hotel in 1973. I recall a cow bell calling us to lunch and eating outside on a table. I'd love to see photos of the hotel back then, but I haven't been able to find any. Out of all the countries we visited that summer, Grand Cayman was the most memorable.

Too big, doesn't fit the landscape, ruining the Cayman vibe!

To my mind the Cayman vibe will be more protected by building a half dozen hotels attracting guests that will contribute to the local economy by spending money. Much better than what building a massive dock for thousands of day visitors who even come along nowadays with their doggie bags so as not to buy lunch. Cruise arranged tours offer little profit to vendors where ops such as water sports operate on a shoe string anyway. Get rid of the illegal beach vendors to boot. And then of course there is the monumental destruction to the marine environment the dock would cause I vote for a few ugly buildings!!!! Many the designers can follow the trend in places like Singapore and have them covered with lush vegetation.
