Great tripfrom seaworthy
Best Rum Punchesfrom santurce
Enjoyed every minute of our stayfrom griftsno1capper
Sunshine Suitesfrom MsPrada
This is definately one of the nicest spots on seven mile. The beach chairs Sunshine Suites has for your use are okay....but we just slipped into a chaise lounge in front of the Westin and nobody bothered us. The Ritz Carlton is building next door but it is far enough away that you don't here any construction noise. The rum punch parties on Mondays are fun, but skip the BBQ...the food was not that great. Instead, go to Legends which is located in the plaza in front of the Sunshine Suites and order a pizza and a stingray dark!
Above average propertyfrom trvlrOrlando_FL
Food is VERY expensive there and restaurant prices are just outrageous.
I also recomend renting a car, taxi fares are very expensive and driving around the island is pretty easy. Overall we had a great time.
This is a truly beautiful island and worth the trip.
First time visit; Very pleasedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It was, admittedly, our first time in Grand Cayman with nothing else to compare it to, but I was quite pleased. Aside from being considerably cheaper than the hotels right on the beach, it's only a 3-4 minute walk, and it's centrally located on 7 Mile Beach.
There's a convenience store, liquor store, cigar shop, etc. very close, and a Captain Marvin's where you can book your tour to Stingray City.
Nice neighborhood, too. Condos in the new Ritz Carlton - right across the street - start at $1.9 million.
The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. It was fun to shop in the local grocery stores and cook in the mini-kitchen that's included in these suites. (Okay, that's not for everybody, but sometimes you just don't feel like dressing for dinner!)
But when you do, there's an excellent 3-star restaurant right across the street on the beach. (Sorry, can't think of the name, but you'll know what I'm talking about.)
They're very liberal with beach towels, beach chairs, etc.
Another plus is the enormous car park (parking lot). It's definitely worthwhile to rent a car in Grand Cayman, unless ALL you want to do is sit on the beach and read. We used Andy's, and rented the Maruti 4x4.
Excellent for taking those sandy roads you're not sure about!
For the money, a very nice place to stay.
Very nice hotel--close to 7 mile beach.from 20Wins
It has a small pool and one small restaurant/bar. The food is very good at the Sunshine Grill. Breakfast is included if you make it to the grill by 9:00. The rooms have refrigerators, toasters and microwaves.
Pool/beach towels are provided at the front desk along with beach toys and chairs. The chairs are not heavy at all (as I read in other reviews). The beach is a short walk but you do have to cross a 4 lane street to get to it. The walk past the Westin is simple and then you share the same perfect section of beach as everyone else. We used the water sports at the Westin as well as the beach bar/grill. They have signs posted "for Westin guests only" but they had no problem taking our money (our dollar is only worth .80 CI). Walking distance takes you to 4 or 5 good restaurants. Eats is the best deal and the closest, but Eduardos and Bella Capri were both very good. Expect to spend some serious money-it is not cheap-also beware of many restaurants adding the 15% gratuity on to the bill. All the activities offered provide transportation. Horseback riding by Nicki is highly recommended. Her horses are great! Fish Eyes (right near Eats) had a good snorkel program-very nice people too! The only downside of the Sunshine Suite is there is no view of anything but the new multi-billion dollar construction of the Ritz Carlton, and there are no safes in the rooms.
I carried a lock with me and locked my valuables in my suitcase and maybe there are no safes because it is a very safe island, but I still like the extra security of a safe. The construction is far enough away you can not hear it. For the price we paid (compared to the beach front resorts) this place is well worth it! I would definately stay here again!!
Sunshine Suites, a great place for familiesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Highly reccommend Sunshine Suites!from BCHughes
Wonderful Memories!!from CIazz
We had the most INCREDIBLE time there. Our hotel, Sunshine Suites was great; the short walk to across the street was not a big deal at all....don't let the walk stop you from staying here. We hit the beaches in the mornings or sight seeing then stayed at our hotel pool for late afternoon swims which worked out perfectly. The breakfast is a decent continental breakfast, juices, an assortment of breads, cereals and accompanyments. The lunch and dinner menu was extremely tastey. We sample a lot of menu and everything was very, very good; extremely fresh food. (definites to try are the fish (mahi mahi) tacos, grilled fish of the day, burgers and Asian salad.) Drinks were delicious too, although dissapointed you did not get to keep the "Painkiller's" cool mug!! Oh yeah, and the Thursday night BBQ was quite tastey as well! The rooms were clean, and staff was excellent; each person nicer than the one before. They were patient, and helpful when suggesting restaurants, places to visit or tours....they always steered us in the right direction. Their best advice was renting a car; we had a blast touring the island (which is extremely easy to navigate with the help of their maps) went to Hell, (nothing really to see there), Turtle Farm (my daughter had fun there), Rum Point was absolutely beautiful - a must see either by car, or ferry. The highlight of our trip by far, besides meeting a SUPER family from England, was our trip to StingRay city.
What an unbelievable experience, one we will never forget. One of front desk personnel suggested a smaller catamyran boat which worked out perfectly for us. The 'rays' were just fantastic to see in their environment. The captain of our boat was very safety conscience which made me feel better about being out on a sandbar surrounded by docile StingRays! --My husband would say the highlight of his trip was snorkling with friends on 7 mile beach....He took a tip from a local Dive instructor and bought these fish tablets that they sell in some hotels....He swam out and dropped a couple of fish tablets in the water and was surrounded by several different types of fish. He said it was spectacular....and the pictures from his disposable water camera prove it! Loved the Caymans!
Top Local Tips for Grand Cayman
Take the local buses to explore the real island To meet some locals and get out of the crowded Seven Mile Beach area, get a number 1 or 2 bus to the bus station in Georgetown and change onto the number three bus to the East End and ask to be dropped off at the Botanical Gardens. The drivers are friendly and ours even rang ahead to order us jerk chicken from his favourite takeaway in the East End. The Gardens host some fantastic captive and wild Blue Iguanas, bird habitats, and some beautifully laid out, colourful gardens. Go in the afternoon to avoid cruise ship parties. A number 9 bus will take you all the way round the island, for just $4. Far cheaper than any tour!
busses unles you enjoy walking in very hot weather you need to take the public transport
Buses - your new friends The buses cost $2 CI one way anywhere up or down 7 mile beach. They are the same as taxis (really!!) only so much cheaper! I run, so I would take $2 CI with me and run as far as I cared to go and then I'd just go to the nearest bus-stop (everywhere) and get a ride back to the hotel. Be a little adventurous - you'll have fun!
