“Not on the beach .. but easy access across the road; basic accomodations”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Nice staff... good value; average rooms. We stayed in a rental home with 5 couples for a week, then stayed here for one night on the way out of town. It was located nicely near town and easy access to the airport. The pool is small, but the grounds are nice. They provide towels for the beach as well as chairs.... albeit, no umbrellas. we chose to go to the Palms on the beach for a day in the sand... where we had a cabana (free) and ten chairs for $35 (a steal). Easy access to many good restaurants. We did have lunch at the small café near the pool... known for their fish tacos.. which were top notch! All in all.... a nice value place to stay. Not the Ritz... but I'm not much for paying $$$$ just to stay a night. Enjoy the Sunshine Suites.

I travel to Cayman 1-2 times per year for business, with my wife and daughter occasionally accompanying me. Sunshine Suites offers practical, spacious and economical accommodations in a great location. It's nothing fancy, but for travellers looking for longer-term stays (1 week+) or who just need a decent place to 'crash' at night, it's perfect.

Here are the positives:
+ hamburgers and fish tacos at the Sunshine Grill (yum!)
+ 7 Mile Beach across the street, with designated area for Sunshine Suites guests
+ Good restaurants in adjacent strip mall (Legendz, Eats, Yoshi Sushi)
+ plenty of (free) parking
+ spacious rooms
+ in-room kitchen
+ convenient beach towel checkout process

And the negatives:
- service was hit-and-miss; delayed baggage was brought to the wrong room, housekeeping does not do dishes, and sometimes all towels were not replenished...room was always clean though
- hotel room doors that open to the outside
- modest facilities (e.g. pool)
- grab-and-go free breakfast is disappointing relative to what this hotel used to offer.

I have stayed at the Sunshine Suites twice now, and I will surely be back.

Room Tip: Beware of stairs...pick a lower floor

This hotel was perfect for us. We are a married couple no kids and we are all about the beach. With a short walk across the street to the best section of seven mile beach this was a perfect hotel for us. We had great service and a clean room. The hotel has beach chairs that you can take to the beach, beach towels, books to check out and will help you with any site seeing or car rentals as we'll.
We also loved having such a great restaurant on site that had great food at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: We had 323 a corner room on the top floor - no problems and quiet.

great place to stay-clean affordable nicely decorated (king bed +pull out couch) and well-maintained. Basic cooking tools. Sunshine grill was tasty and amazing service. All the staff were excellent (front desk especially Renoir, cleaning staff, Sunshine Grill staff). Very close walk to the beautiful Seven Mile Beach and a close drive to the Turtle Farm, great snorkel sites and Camana bay.

The hotel's description is accurate: It is not on the beach, so you have to take beach chairs and towels to the beach. But it is only a short walk. It is a public beach but the beach front hotels obviously do not want you using their beach chairs, etc., and their security guards are watching the crowd. I read someone complaining about that. But this is also not your high-end top dollar hotel, so comparing it to Ritz-Carlton is absurd. You pay less for this hotel, so there are some things that may not be exactly perfect. But they are not bad either. We came to explore the island and all it had to offer. We got a car at the airport and we used it every day. We returned to our room to crash after a long day. And for that, the place was absolutely perfect. Why overpay for the extra amenities we would not use anyway? The free breakfast was adequate for us. It's pastries, fruit, cereal, yogurt, milk, coffee - the essentials to get you going. If you want something more substantial - their restaurant is great! Get their tacos - a must to try! Love the staff! Every time we booked a tour, the hotel staff was very helpful. They make all the arrangements and call you to confirm. By the way, I called this hotel several times before we left for Grand Cayman to ask silly questions (should we bring our snorkeling gear, for example - things like that). And they we so helpful! They replied to all my emails also. The service of this lower-end hotel exceeded my expectations. It was very personable and friendly. Their wifi is wonderful. I brought some work with me and the wifi did not disappoint. We liked our room. It wasn't large but it was more than adequate. A kitchenette is a big plus. We used their two-burner stove, microwave and their full size fridge. A grocery store is just a short walk away so if you do not feel like dining out two to three times a day every day (and restaurants aren't cheap on the island), you will be glad to have some cooking option in the room. Overall, if you prefer to spend your vacation on a resort's premises mostly, this place may not be for you. Get a beach-front hotel instead. But if you are more about exploring, seeing the island, driving around, doing things away from a hotel, etc., this place is just what you need - nothing more. Great value for the money and for what we needed in a place to stay. We would return in a heartbeat!

This place a fantastic crew in the front office, accomodating, friendly and timely service. The location is perfect for beach access, restaurants and a quick ride to georgetown for shopping. I was able to access their hospitality suite after a last minute tour and before my flights.

Room Tip: Early birds get the first level, no elevators in the two blocks.
