We were at SS for the week of Jan 24, 2013. It was our second trip to the Cayman Islands.
The hotel is ok, the staff were polite but not over-friendly except Paco, the resident feline!
The major complaint we had was the staying on the south west corner, meant hearing the WestBay garbage truck pick up at 6:50am, now I know municipalities start early, but in our & our hotel neighbours opinion, that is too early.
We skipped the daily free breakfast as soon as we discovered what we had bought at Kirks grocery was much tastier.
FYI the hotel doesn't supply a reusable coffee filter for the 10 cup coffee pot or much in the way of good sized pots & pans. You'll have to be inventive if you are planning on cooking for more then 2 people. The one bedroom we stayed did not have a door to the bedroom, so it's a suite.
If you are on the Island during the Taste of Cayman, go.
It is so worth the money.
We were there in 2008 after Hurricane Ivan, & I am so glad to see the difference in the Island, even I was impressed with Camana Bay.
Someone who was on the charter bus to the airport complained how commercial the island was, they apparently had only gone to Cuba before, we laughed and asked if they had rented a car & explored the island, of course the answer was no! First timers!
Now for all you single malt drinkers & you top self drinkers in general, try Seven Fathoms Rum.
Foodies I recommend highly the Havana chicken dish at he Sunshine Grill, it's enough for 2 people.
Go try the Tukka restaurant is on the north east side of the island, try the Kangaroo Sausage!
Yep Kanga on Cayman!
