“Grand Vacation in Grand Cayman”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Visited Grand Cayman at the end of Pirates Week 2011. Had a wonderful time. I would recommend a rental car to explore the island. The 7 Mile Beach Resort is a beautiful property a short walk from the beach. The room was excellent (new appliances and washer and dryer in the unit). The walk to the beach was not a problem even for my 5 year old. We travelled to other beaches on the island so this walk never was a problem. They do charge fee for electric use at the end of the stay (Ours was around $100). But we had 5 people in and out of our unit and we did laundry alot. Things I would highly recommend: Scuba Diving, Stingray Cay Trip, Rum Point, Smith's Cove. If you have a little one obsessed with pirates, this is the perfect island especially during Pirates Week.

Room Tip: Top floor room so noise is less of a problem (No one above you)

If you are first time to Grand Cayman like we were, and looking for a clean and spacious condo near the beach (a 2 minute stroll), this is your place. Right on Seven Mile Beach near a great selection of wonderful restaurants. Just right for a family, we were there with our college age sons and had plenty of space, a nice-screened lanai overlooking the pool that is never crowded and perfect weather.Yes, the garbage truck does run by very noisily at about 4 am and the roosters don't always know the time but that all seems to add to the charm.
Caymanians are very friendly and hospitable. Recommend Captain Marvin's excellent trip to Stingay City.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the pool so you can't go wrong.I would choose 2nd or 3rd floor for more priva...

Stayed at this time-share through a swap. First time on Grand Cayman. The unit was very nice: 2 bdrms, each with a full bath with soaps, shampoos, etc.; full kitchen, all major applns., etc; dining room with large table; flat scren tv in living room with sleeper sofa and 2 chairs; overall the unit was very nicely decorated and appeared to have undergone a total face-lift of just about everything; lovely screened in porch overlooking a very large pool with many lounge chairs and much shade; 2 large weber grills avail.; office staff extremely courteous and very helpful; office loans books, games, cards, dvd's etc.; beach umbrella provided for the asking; traveled with my wife, sister-in-law and my brother; we all had a thoroughly great time at 7 Mile and would definitely return. Also, we aaaall have traveled to most of the Caribbean, Mexico and South American beaches, and Grand Cayman has become one of all of our favorites. The people, the beaches, the food, the history, the culture, the attractions, the overall ambience, all were 2nd to none. Do go there!!!

Room Tip: With children, elderly, disabled-request ground floor.

Our condo was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit and was very nice inside. The outside is not anything to write home about but the inside is quite nice. We had a washer and dryer in our unit which was really nice to have. Several guests have commented on the beds being uncomfortable; I would not say they are horrible by any means but they certainly aren't the most comfortable beds ever.
Our refrigerator actually quit while we were there and the management staff was relatively helpful in getting it repaired. They did not exactly rush to get it done, but it did get done the same day we notified them of the issue. They brought us a huge bag of ice to help keep our perishable items cool while we were waiting on a repairman which was very nice.
The pool was very nice and was quiet most of the time.
The grills that are by the pool for guest use are very nice! It would be great if the guests would do the right thing and clean them the way they should, but that is certainly not the resorts fault.
The location of the resort was great, it was right across the street from Coconut Joe's which we thought was great; it was a decent walking distance from Georgetown. Mind you - its a LONG walk, but it is certainly do-able. What we did was walk one way and then take a bus the other way.
The beach was nice, pretty narrow, but clean and nice. They provide lounge chairs and umbrellas. The snorkeling near the resort was not that great while we were there, it was a bit rough and very rocky under the water. According to some braver people there were some things to see down near the Marriott but we did not venture out again after finding it a bit too rough.

Our one MAJOR gripe was that every morning during the week at about 5:00 in the morning the garbage truck would come to empty the dumpsters of this and other nearby resorts. It was VERY loud and VERY annoying. We were in the very back of the resort so I am sure that other units probably couldn't hear it but it was awful for us. Thankfully we are decently hard sleepers and would go back to sleep once he left. I dont' know if there is anything the resort could do about this but you might want to pack earplugs if you aren't a really hard sleeper.

The resort is working on getting the amenities that were ruined by the hurricane a few years ago up and going again but we didn't find anything that it was lacking really. Overall, We were very happy with our stay there.

Room Tip: I would imagine the rooms on the north side or to the center would avoid the noise from the alley th...

This was our fourth visit to the Cayman Island but our first stay at the 7 Mile Beach Resort. Prior, we stayed a couple times at the Marriott which is 2 building down the road and the Ramada Grand Cayman Resort on the other side of the island The 7 Mile Beach is not as beautiful as it use to be because a good portion has been washed away but we truly enjoyed our stay at this hotel even though it rained almost daily. The unit had appliances such as a washer and dryer and nicely decorated. The staff is friendly, polite, and responded to issues promptly. Thank you Vangie, Angel, and Garnet for all your assistance! Also, Angel does a great job with daily morning water aerobics!

We requested the ground floor after reading many reviews mentioning that there were no elevators, glad we did! The screen porch outside our unit was nice and relaxing. The pool was very nice and every unit had a pool view. With the great price and the nice unit right on 7 mile beach we definitely would return to this resort and would recommend it to friends and family but not in October!

P.S. During our visit, we checked out the Plantation Condos and were very glad we picked Seven Mile Beach Resort. The Plantation Condos were not updated and it was like a large Condo Complex with a plain pool.

Room Tip: Units 15, 16, or 17 first floor

We traded our Marriott timeshare through Interval for the Seven Mile Beach Resort. The resort is relatively small - three, 3 - story buildings, no elevators. Upon arrival to check in we found the office is in one of the units on the second floor and there is no lobby. There is an extra charge government charge and utility charge ($70 & $75 US) that you have to pay at check in. There is no bell boy or anyone to help with the luggage so I chose a first floor unit.

The units appeared nice, stainless steel appliances and the stack washer dryer. The furnishings were fair and could be updated. There was free Wi-Fi and Dish TV although based on the weather conditions both were not reliable. We went through the inventory list to make sure we had everything we were supposed to have and made a list of the missing items and brought it to the office. This is important since they could charge you for items. We noted that a bedroom lamp didn't work and the range hood light was out. We were told that maintenance didn't work on the weekend and that we could get the bulbs on Monday. The lamp bulb was never replaced. The coffee cups are so tiny - they should have coffee mugs that hold 8 oz. They should also include plastic tumblers to take to the pool. The mattress was pretty hard.

Although the location of the resort is very good, the resort is not directly on the beach. It's confusing when you read about the resort. There is a building in front of it that is beachfront. They have an area on the beach reserved for the resort. All rooms face the pool.

The amenities leave something to be desired. They refer to a fitness center but it's not on the property - it's about 1/4 mile away and you have to pay for it. Hurricane Ivan damaged the resort in 1994 and the tennis courts have not been replaced and here is no bar or pool bar although I was told they still have a liquor license.

Upon reading their welcome book in the unit I noted that they want you to strip the beds before you leave. I have traveled quite a bit and stayed at a lot of timeshares and have never in my life heard of this. One other thing that is surprising is the office hours. They are open Sat. 9am-7pm, Sun. 9am - 3pm and Mon. - Fri. 9am-6pm. we met someone who arrived at 7:30pm on Sat. and I asked her how she checked in and she said they left the key to her unit in an envelope outside the office. We had an early flight and had to leave the resort at 6:30am. I inquired about check out and was told I needed to do that by 6pm the day before.

Unfortunately it rained and poured most of the time we were there and we were stuck in the unit way too much and there was not much else we could do. I would not return to this resort nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Just returned from 7M Island Resort. Like many other reviews, I can attest, that from the outside, it strongly resembles a Howard Johnson's. IMO because of the aqua blue roof! However, the condo's are very nice inside. Clean and very comfortable excluding the bed. Not horrible but they need to be upgraded to a better quality and comfort level. Staff was very helpful when I requested a few things, such as taxi's or using a computer. We were missing the remotes for the TV's however they were brought to us within 5 minutes of requesting them. The only negative to the kitchen was that we had tiny sugar ants on the counters. We killed them daily but their relatives continued to show up for snacks.
The pool was very nice and never crowded...spent a lot of time in the pool since I couldn't snorkel off the beach. Beach was a block away. Resort is NOT on the beach w/no ocean view! However, nice pool view and nice screened in balcony to relax on. Other big plus was the washer/Dryer in the Unit. Sheets and towels were changed on Wednesday.
BTW...for those who want pool side drink service....there is none. However, there is a grill to use and you can bring your own drinks to the pool.

The beach was beautiful however not as wide as I had expected. Unfortunately, the water was very choppy and the visibility non existent for snorkeling . Big disappointment but hey...it's a chance one has to take when going in Oct. I had heard from a few owners this isn't the best time to visit GC.

You can walk into Georgetown for the shopping, it takes about 30 min if you casually stroll. I recommend stopping at the glass blowing place. Some awesome ornaments to buy as gifts or for yourself. Also went to Island Time and bought a beautiful watch there. Check when the cruise ships are coming in because most of the restaurants on the off season do not open till 11:30am. During the high season stay out of the Georgetown, when the ships are in. Way to many people to do any shopping.

I recommend Coconut Joe's across the street..however the biscuits and gravy aka Monkey Slop- is NOT what you get for breakfast down south in the US. It's more like a brown gravy and not very good. Other than that...most of the food was edible. Cimboca's was a great restaurant however, beware of the garlic if that isn't to your liking. We had an excellent dinner and I recommend the grilled shrimp risotto. My all time favorite was Blue at the Ritz Carlton! It really is worth the price and the service was impeccable. Matt was our waiter and he was just awesome! He really made this special for us. Including a tour of the kitchen to meet the chef's! It's very expensive but oh so worth it! (150 plus a person)

We also went to Eats for breakfast (30 min walk) and it was very tasty and well priced! Good biscuits and gravy!

I personally won't be going back to GC due to the beaches. I've been to St Thomas/John and IMO, their beaches surpass Grand Caymans. Furthermore I found it a bit to commercialized for my taste. 7 mile beach is lovely however, it's one resort and condo after another which IMO, takes away the beauty. However, to each their own.

*** For those like myself who don't read the confirmation letters from Interval International when trading, you may want to in the future. I found out upon check in that I had to pay 140 plus (USD) to cover the a/c and a few other expenses. Moral to the story...read the letter and the fine print!
