“Our new favourite sun destination!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We were ready to move away from all-inclusives and tailor more of our own family vacation.
With alot of research, and reading other reviews, we zoomed in on Grand Cayman Islands and one resort really stood out from the pack - Sunshine Suites Resort!

We had the best family vacation ever- it's a smaller property, so that guests and other families enjoyed some conversations each day, sharing new places to check out!

We really enjoyed having our own kitchen, with grocery stores close by that meet or beat other North American groceries! We enjoyed the 3 minute walk to the beach.

Can't beat the location along Seven Mile Beach and its spectacular sunsets! Sunshine Suites started us off each day with a great breakfast buffet, and the restaurant was a very popular spot for both lunch and supper!

Staff were incredibly helpful, pleasant and responsive for any requests we did have!
We will definitely be back to Sunshine Suites!

Room Tip: Main floor units allow you to sit outside your rooms and enjoy the sunsets. 3rd floor corner unit o...

The rooms are very comfortable & accommodating! We enjoy the restaurant & pool area!! A short walk across the street & you're at the beach!! It's our favorite place to be!!

I had a great time here. My stay was short but very pleasant and relaxing :) The room was very comfortable and it exceeded my expectations by far! I stayed in a studio suite which was just right for me. It was cozy and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was very good. They had a good selection to choose from. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant, ecspecially Nneka! She was amazing! She made my stay much more enjoyable! :) I would definitely be back for another stay!

Just got back and have to say the hotel really is value for the money. It is right across the street from what be the best beach area in SMB. The staff were extremely helpful. The resort is not big, the pool is small but it all works out fine. We spent a lot of time on the beach and I had the best scuba diving experience of my life. The resort provides portable beach chairs you can take to the beach. There is a Costco-like store (u-Save) 1 block away you can buy supplies like juice, fruits, meats, etc. We bought a sun beach umbrella ($12) which was worth its weight in gold (sun and the odd rain shower). It can be hot and the sun intense so bring lots of lotion. Lots of restaurants around. The resort restaurant is very good and the free breakfast worked for us. Sting Ray city is a must. Well worth the money... great location and a good hotel - we will be back!

We arrived on a Saturday and were permitted an early check in, we asked for a place to get groceries and were given directions by front desk. Every time we asked for help the front desk were eager to help, help to arrange tours, help with local transport, advice on which tours are best to take and when we came back all the staff were eager to hear of our exploits. Made us feel like family. The rooms are clean, bed soft and comfy and great pillows. TV in bedroom and living room, Bath and Body line of products for toiletries. Unlimited beach towell change out daily at the office, beach furniture to take to beach, oh and the continental breakfast we expected was a coffee and toast or muffins, what was delivered was scrambled eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit, oatmeal, fresh fruit sellection, cereals, toast, coffee and 2 different choice for juice. What a great time we had. We would highly recommend and we would book again with out hesitation.

Room Tip: all suites are good

We had an excellent time staying here with the service provided by all the staff being superb. The rooms are modern, clean and tidy.

Parking space was plentiful and if you are a diver they have their own rinse tank, hanging area and secured lockers on the premises.

Breakfast food can get a bit samey at the grill and the same gospel rock music they play over and over every morning can be especially grating on the nerves. A change of music would be nice as not everyone wants to listen to the same religious music over and over for 2 weeks solid.

Some evenings can be a little noisy, though that's nothing to do with the apartments, just inconsiderate guests, so if you can, get rooms away from the stairs and you should be fine.

The free wi-fi is an added bonus who are looking for that sort of thing and there is a decent selection of shops less than a minutes walk away, not to mention a decent sized pool in the middle of the grounds.

Would recommend staying here whether on a budget or not as it's in a good location but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from any stair wells.

We just spent a week at Sunshine Suites (9/15/12 - 9/22-12). The staff is exceptional and very attententive to detail, especially Neeka! We stayed in a studio suite. This suite includes a full-size refrigerator, two burner stove top, toaster, and microwave. Dishes, silverware, and pots and pans were most suitable. CostULess is within walking distance--similar to Sam's Club. Take your own bags for groceries...I wheeled the cart back to Sunshine and took it back to CostULess (not everyone takes them back). Other than lunch at the Turtle Farm, we fixed our own lunch/dinner.

There is a continental breakfast at their restaurant (Sunshine Grill) each morning--rotates between hard boiled eggs and scambled eggs. Always fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, mini muffins, and toast. Breakfast is available from 7 - 9:30 AM.

Public transportation is reliable. We used public transportation to visit Queen Elizabeth Botanic Park, the Turtle Farm, Atlantis Submarine, and Cemetary Reef Beach (great for snorkeling). To catch a bus, you just stand on the side of the road and the bus stops. The bus drivers are very helpful in getting you to your destination. Bring lots of ones and fives. The bus in CI money is $2. US---2 for $5 or $3 for a person since it didn't appear that the driver gives change. (The bus is more like a van--shaped like the old Volkswagen Bus).

The walk to the beach takes about 3-4 minutes. It is a busy road; however, cars almost always stop to let you cross. Sunshine Suites has beach chairs available with a strap for easy carrying. Some people on Trip Advisor complain about the smell walking by garbage by Westin. It was fine with us; however, there are beach access up and down the beach. You can work another few minutes to the left and enter by the Ritz Carlton...or head to the right and enter at another location.

This resort even has a guest laundry room in each building. $1 to wash; $1 to dry (Cayman money). Detergent is available for purchase as well. It was great to have laundry all done before coming home! The front desk will exchange bills for quarters.

We loved the Christian music playing; however, they do switch it out with other music to try to accommodate the needs of all guests.

The pool is not large; but it was most adequate (20 x 40). Since we were there during off season, we had the pool to ourselves most of the time.

We are tyring to visit all of the islands; however, if we were to return to the Cayman Islands, we would definitely stay at Sunshine Suites! It felt like home!
