“Solid Place - Good Value”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a nice time at the Sunshine Suites. The room was large and clean. It's nice to have a large fridge, mini-cooking area, and a small 'living' area separate from the sleeping area.

Beach access is a couple minute walk (across a busy street) and past the resort across the street...but easy. No problems getting a chair and umbrella from Sunshine Suites to use at the beach.

The good at the Sunshine Grill is good. You can also walk down the strip to several other dining areas. It's also an easy walk to the IGA for food for your room.

My wife and I flew in to Grand Cayman a day early and couldn’t get a room at the resort we were staying at across the street. We opted to stay at Sunshine Suite Resort based on the reviews from so many others. While it does not feel or look like a resort, it does have a pool & great little restaurant on site. The rooms are small but clean, and the location is directly across the street from 7-mile beach, which was nice for an evening walk after dinner. The restaurant has great food, especially the tacos! We found ourselves coming back for lunch almost every day and never had a bad meal. Overall the staff is very friendly and it is a good place to stay if you don’t plan on hanging out in your room, but then again why would you in the Caymans?!

Stayed here for 8 days with 2 kids and 2 adults. What a great place. 3 min walk to the best beach you will ever see. There are nice restaurants within walking distance and a liqure store on the corner of the property.
The staff are very friendly and helpful!
The restaurant is amazing. Great portions and great drinks!
Come and experience the Cayman's...and stay at Sunshine Suites!

If you want a great, clean place without the cost of a beachfront resort, this is a wonderful place. Exactly as they advertise it. About a block from the beach, comfortable beds, nice pool, and good on-site restaurant. I ate most of my breakfasts and lunches there, and a few dinners. Good food at a reasonable price.

There is a path to the beach, only about a block's walk.

Aside from the hotel, I recommend renting a Jeep and driving to Rum Point for the day. Seven Mile beach is great, but I prefer the beach at Rum Point, especially if you walk past the dock for a while.

We got a great deal through West Jet Vacations from Toronto to stay at the Sunshine Suites. Had a room on the 3rd floor (304 which faces south), there are no elevators but certainly using the stairs helps burn off some of the calories from the "sunshine scramble" that we ate almost daily at the Sunshine Grill.

The room served our needs well. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. While we made no use of the kitchenette it seemed functional and included dishes, cooking implements and utensils. The full size fridge was nice as allowed us to put our doggie bags in the fridge. In the unit the A/C made the room nice and cold and the fan was a great option for moving the air around. The bathroom fan was very effective. My only complaint in the room is that the water pressure in the shower was quite low; luckily there was always plenty of hot water so it just meant longer showers. Bathroom has shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bars of soap and lotion, towels were replaced when requested.

All of the staff that we dealt with at the hotel were friendly and helpful from the cleaning staff to the people working the reception desk. The staff at the desk made suggestions about things to do on the island and places to eat.

Breakfast was more limited then I am used to but included eggs in some form (scrambled or hard boiled), a cut fruit and another fruit (bananas, apples), a variety of cereals, bread for toasting, oatmeal, mini muffins (variety), and on some occasions another hot dish. There was coffee available, which you could come and get any time throughout the day - and real cream available to put in it and not just creamer or whitener, there were also two juice choices with breakfast.

There always plenty of chairs that you could borrow to take over to the beach and the short walk to the beach was fine. We had no issues finding somewhere to sit and hang out on the beach. At the hotel the pool was clean and well maintained. In the week we were there I saw the pool being cleaned regularly. While there are not many chairs by the pool (why sit there when there are so many other beautiful places to go), I was always able to find a chair by the pool when I did want to lie there. Beach towels were available at the front desk and they were happy to exchange them for you whenever you needed. The grounds were immaculate - lovely grass, plants and trees which were in great shape.

The hotel is within walking distance to a few other restaurants and shops as well as a grocery store.

Overall a great experience.

Very good value for the money . We used to jog to the George town early morning and back it is not too far for runner ;). Rooms are clean ,kitchenette in room , service is very good .
Although it is very close to the beach, you have to find your spot between two hotels and condo as Sunshine doesn't have designated beach area . I even had discussion with one of the condo-lady as she was not too happy with my sit selection being too close to her chairs , tables , flowers etc:)
it wasn't big deal to move farther , however for some reason I felt as second-rate on perfect 7 Mile Beach for the rest of vacation :) . Sunshine folks usually stay in one small area between hotel and condo .
For that reason I would probably pay more to stay on the beach.

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor. My husband, 3 1/2 year old granddaughter and I stayed at Sunshine Suites Resort in a one bedroom suite. We highly, HIGHLY recommend this hotel!!!! Every member of the staff was very warm and friendly - always greeted us with a genuine smile, and our granddaughter by name. This was the absolute BEST vacation that we have ever had!!! We are already looking to stay there again in 2013 for two weeks.The hotel is very conveniently located to Seven Mile Beach (just across the street), the Sunshine Grill (awesome - try the ice cream of the day, heavenly!), Cost U Less, for groceries, is a block away, and very close to Georgetown. The free buffet breakfast was a tasty treat. This resort is absolutely one of the BEST values you will ever find...a true gem!!!

Room Tip: I highly recommend a one bedroom suite - lots of room!!! There is no elevator, but rooms on the 2nd...
