We just got back from spending a week in unit #36 (VRBO #496852) and can't wait to go back.
The complex is in a perfect location on seven mile beach. The beach is just amazing, you literally walk 15 steps and you are on the white soft sand. The complex is between several of the expensive resorts. We walked to the Ritz/Marriott and their beach was tightly packed with chairs and people. We couldn't wait to get back to our beach at the Cayman Reef were we always had beach chairs and privacy. Across the street there are several spots to grab food and there is also a restaurant on the beach next door. You will not have to go far to find good food. Food is a little more expensive in Grand Cayman so just be prepared for that. You can also catch the buses on the street and go to town or the grocery store. Across the street is a high end shopping complex with a movie theatre, restaurants, stores, gym ect. We enjoyed going over there to eat and look around.
As far as the unit, we couldn't ask for more. It has a beach view from the patio, super clean, good AC, flat screen TVs, comfy bed, nice furniture, stocked kitchen (pans, glasses, tea, coffee, salt, oil ect), washer/dryer, and a BBQ. They even lend you a cell phone so you can make local calls. We arrived to a nice bottle of wine, chips and rum cake. With the high food prices we defiantly used the kitchen and it had everything that we needed. The owner is onsite and very easy to reach.
If you are trying to decide between one of the resorts and a condo I would go with a condo. You get so much more for your money and you can't beat having a kitchen. When we go back we will be staying at Cayman Reef again. Grand Cayman is a very friendly island and super clean. You are not harassed while you are relaxing on the beach or when you go to town to shop.
