5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Sunshine Suites is in my top 5 hotels I've stayed at around the world.

Their staff is very welcoming and helpful. Their location is perfect. The rooms are always so unbelievably clean. The kitchenette is fantastic for a week long stay. The restaurant is really good for a hotel restaurant.

BEST THINGS:
- THE BEDS ARE FANTASTIC!!! We usually have back problems. Their beds we really amazing. Got to love a good night's sleep!
- Fresh Beach towels and beach chairs.
The front office handed out fresh beach towels (1 per guest) any time you needed them. This service was incredible! It was so nice being able to go to the beach/diving/snorkeling without having to lug around your own towel or worry about a dry towel. The beach chairs they have (located on the side of the front office building) are also available to all guests free of charge. The chairs are shockingly comfortable. We took them to an impromptu picnic on the beach at Smith Cove. Very nice!
- Location
The hotel is located right across the street from the Westin and the Ritz. You can walk across the street to the beach, or, if you have a rental car, drive down to park at Governor's beach (the closest) or Seven Mile public beach parking area. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A RENTAL CAR!!! You don't have to have one, but we really like exploring and it's the best way to do it. Cabs are expensive! Another great perk is being walking distance to the liquor store (maybe a 2 minute walk) and Captain Marvin's snorkeling trip. There's also a breakfast cafe in front of the hotel complex which looked nice, but was crowded when we peeked in.
- Staff
On several occasions, the staff made great recommendations for trips and restaurants. They made reservations for us. They also were really friendly around the hotel grounds and made the stay that much more enjoyable.
- The Breakfast (included for us)
The breakfast surpassed my expectations. They always had the standard (cereals, oatmeal -but the fresh oatmeal-, fruit, yogurt). But then they also threw in eggs (several different ways throughout the week) and the occasional pancake or french toast. Their pastries were also good.

MY ONLY ADVICE:
- Drinks are pricey at the restaurant (CI$9 for alcohol CI$3 for soda). They're even more expensive across the street though. They portion sizes are pretty big, we always split a meal everywhere we went. The tacos at the Grill are really good!
- I would recommend a ground floor room if you have a rental car just for added convenience.
- The studio room was big enough for two people. An upgrade really isn't necessary unless you have more than two people
- The breaker tripped in the bathroom a couple of times due to the fan being on. It's an easy reset with the light switch button, but it took us a bit to figure that out!


It's one of the best priced hotels for what they offer. I highly recommend staying here for a week long stay.

Room Tip: Ground floor would be recommended for anyone with a rental car or going in and out of the hotel a lo...

My husband and I just left The Sunshine Suites yesterday and are already missing it. Our room was always clean and very convenient to beach, restaurants, bus line and taxi cabs. The staff was very helpful - always answered questions, made restaurant reservations and called transportation for us. The Sunshine Grill is the hidden jewel of the Island. We have to agree that the fish tacos and sliders are to die for.

We stayed in the studio room. Queen size bed, dresser, closet, kitchen and bathroom. Felt like a small apartment. Couldn't have asked for a better room. The complimentary breakfast was okay, nothing special... but the lunch and dinner available here beats any nearby hotel. The shrimp tacos were incredible. Definitely a must have. Clean pool, friendly staff, will definitely stay here again if we go back.

Our family have just left The Sunshine Suites Resort in Georgetown,Grand Cayman.We stayed for 7 fantastic nights here,our second trip here. The accommodation is excellent,clean and most convenient to the fantastic beach 5 minutes walk away. The staff are excellent and very much operate a 'can do' attitude. The Sunshine Grill is run by Darren who does an excellent job with his wonderful staff. Nothing was a problem during our stay from 7 - 14 May 2013. The food is of a consistently high standard,plenty of it and always clean and tidy with happy staff.

The reception staff were also excellent. I must single out Katie who was especially helpful during our stay.Nothing at all was a problem and always a smiling face and pleasant words to say.

Housekeeping was also first rate,with clean towels etc everyday.Our room was always cleaned to a consistently high standard.

So if you are considering a stay at 7 Mile Beach you must stay here I cannot recommend it enough.

A lovely hotel which is very clean with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Only a 5 minute walk from the beach, super value for money. The sunshine grill provides a wide range of food suitable for everyone, big portions and not expensive in comparison to other local restaurants.we had a great time and will definitely be back.

An excellent vacation destiny. We found the staff to be top notch, they made you feel right at home. Always smiling and very courteous. The resort was very clean and well kept. The beach was just a hop-skip and a jump away. They supply the beach chair and towel. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone. We have already booked for 2014 Easter. Cant wait.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here from Saturday to Thursday. It's across the street from seven mile beach and not too far from Georgetown. The staff was really friendly and helpful. They called the airport for me to help me locate my luggage, which I found out happens quite often. It was one of the better deals for the area and even has the best restaurant in the area, Sunshine Grill (the fish tacos and hamburgers are the best I've ever had). The rooms have dishes, utensils, stove, microwave and refrigerator. It's kinda like a little studio.

Down side was that there was a power outage when we were there, but I can't hold them responsible for that. They were nice and kept us updated on the issue and they knew some of the restaurants that still did have power so we could go there to eat (the Sunshine Grill was down). Even though the beach is right across the street, the chairs that are already there are reserved for guests of the hotels along the beach so we had to bring our own chairs (Sunshine Suites has chairs, you just have to carry them).

The bus comes along West Bay road and picks you up at the side of the road and can take you to Georgetown for $2 U.S. dollars. There's a grocery store close by called Cost-U-Less (it's like Costco)
