Westin Resort: Nice Hotel
I booked my stay during hurricane season, so my rate was significantly lower. That said, the hotel is a high end resort that, like any other high end place, includes nothing (with the exception of beach towels and lounge chairs). Prior to my stay I read a lot of complaints that there were charges for everything. While that is true, it should not be unexpected since it is not inclusive. If money is an issue, you can go across the street to arrange for excursions (through Captain Marvin's), for water and beer (at the liquor store, grocery store or Captain Marvin's) and a little cheaper food at Eats Cafe.
I also read complaints about the staff prior to my arrival. I had no problems with the staff. In fact, I found them to be very friendly and accomodating. We ate dinner our first night at Casa Havana. While quite expensive, it was excellent. I wasn't feeling well, so I cancelled my entree (after I had finished an appetizer) and they packed my boyfriend's entree to go so he could leave with me. The chef even offered to make me chicken soup.
The only negative thing I can say (aside from the island being expensive in general) is the rooms smell very musty/moldy (as can be somewhat expected in a very humid environment). Hopefully the hotel management will catch on that they should remove the carpet (which tends to absorb moisture and odor) and tile the floors. That should help with the odor.
You can snorkel right off the beach. The hotel is located on the best part of 7 mile beach. As you look at the ocean from the hotel, there is a great snorkeling spot to the right near a buoy. You can also rent jet skiis for a "jet ski safari" which is great fun and a better deal than renting one for 1/2 hour.
Lastly, the spa is fantastic. My boyfriend and I had a couples massage. While expensive (with tip it was almost $300 USD), it was phenomenal.

Turtle Nest Inn: Relaxed Apartments Right On Beach
We loved our stay at the Turtle Nest Inn. Alain and Marleine are wonderful hosts. The apartment was clean and spacious with wonderful views of the water. The patio steps of our beachfront apartment steps led down to the pool and further to the beach and couldn't have been any more convenient for getting some sun.
There is a washer and clothes dryer available which came in quite handy.
The location is a bit out of town but we preferred that.
Alain and Marleine arranged for Andy to go out for the day fishing with one of the locals and I think that may have been the highpoint of the stay for Andy.
I would recommend this place for anyone looking for self-catered accommodation with great views. Using the kitchen for some meals helped to keep the budget in line. Eating out a lot on the island can add up quickly.
The best quality of the Turtle Nest Inn has to be the graciousness of Alain and Marleine. Very helpful and full of wonderful suggestions and ideas about things to see and do as well as places to eat, etc. Without them, the place would have just been another beachfront apartment.

Sunset House: Simple, friendly dive resort
I have stayed at the Sunset House every time I visit the island. The hotel is simple, well maintained, clean and the staff is friendly. If you are looking to stay at a luxury resort on a white sand beach, this isn't the place for you. There is no beach here, but the shore diving is excellent. Sunset house is within walking distance to downtown George Town.
There is a great bar at the hotel called My Bar. It’s a great place to hang out after a day of diving, meet people from all over the world and watch the sunset. The hotel also has its own dive shop with a fleet of well equipped dive boats. They offer a dive inclusive package that gives you a small discount.

The Pools: Away from the Beaten Path
We stayed at a condo called the Pools. It was very nice and each unit had its own swimming pool. The Condos were set against the bay on the secluded north side of the Island about a 45 minute car ride from the tourism of 7 mile beach. Several restaurants were close at hand and in walking distance. A small beach at Rum Point also had a restaurant and an excellent place to swim and just relax.

Comfort Suites: Great Place In The Center of Seven Mile Beach
Service at the hotel was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Not oceanfront, but I would rather be sitting on the beach than staring at it from my hotel room....just a few steps from the sand. Hotel has a cool bar with good drinks and food near the pool and hot tub. I will definately be staying here during my next trip to Grand Cayman.
They have a Don Foster's dive shop located at the hotel.

Turtle Beach Villas: Best Villa on the Island
This villa was awesome. We had a lovely villa with a kitchen, living room, large master bedroom with bathroom. The sofa was a sleeper and there was also bunk beds, as well as, another bathroom. We had a screened in porch with a large table, lounge chairs, and floats.
Nice pool with 5 steps down onto the gorgeous 7 Mile Beach.

Wyndham Sunshine Suites: Aim to Please
The Wyndham is working very hard to welcome guests back while continuing to rebuild after Ivan's destruction. We arrived at around 1:30. One of our rooms was ready, and the other was not. Check in is 3:00, and our second room was ready by 3:00. The rooms have been freshly painted, and polished. Brand new bed spreads, but a mixture of furnishings. A few of the promised amenities were absent such as a CD player in the room. If we had asked, I'm sure one would have been provided. The management, Mike and Frank in particular, went out of their way to please. We appreciated their effort so much, that we invited them to dine with us on our last night. Our stay during this soft opening, was truly amazing. From the every night Happy Hour, to the many friends we made. The only thing that I will complain about was the bed pillows. They had an unpleasant odor. It bothered me enough to wrap a bath towel around it. The grounds looked great. The pool was wonderful, and the patio furnishing were all new. The dive lockers had not been rebuilt yet. A small inconvenience since there is no elevator! The dive gear is heavy, you know! The continental breakfast was much more then continental!! All of the staff was friendly and kind.
One main reason we chose this hotel was because of the kitchens. It really saves a lot of money to prepare your own meals. The section of Seven Mile Beach across the street, is the most beautiful (In my opinion)

Treasure Island Resort: Great Pool
Just me and hubby, so we cheaped it from Expedia.com and got a great deal at Treasure Island Resort which is the Hotel part. After a $100. credit for food, our Hotel room for a week ended up costing $200.! That's total - for the week! I would have stayed in the trunk of a car in Cayman for 200 a week!
The room itself was in need of some work. The dresser drawers would fall out of their tracks, there was no water pressure and the room smelled very musty. Still worth it for 200 bucks? You bet!
The best feature of the hotel, was their pool(s). It was awesome! Swim-up bars, water falls, hot tubs! It was great.

Treasure Island Resort: Only in Cayman!
Since we were here to dive, we didn't want to spend big bucks on a hotel room we weren't going to spend much time in.
The resaurants Hooks and Athena's had good food, but small portions.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman: Beautiful but Expensive
We traveled to Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands with three children and stayed at the Hyatt. One if not the nicest resorts on the island. Grand Cayman is a British island and it looks it. Clean, polite, little crime and very expensive. It is one of the most beautiful islands that I have been too but you will pay. They Hyatt is lovely and has a lovely seperate beach area that is across the road. This really is not an inconvenience as the grounds and pool area is massive. They overbooked the hotel when we were there and had to put us in a room with a king bed and sleeper. Tight for five. They did put us on the Conceirge floor so we had our own lovely lady to assist us. Drinks, appetizers, afternoon tea,breakfast was included to make up for their mistake. Thank goodness because it is expensive to eat out. A funky place to eat and drink is the "Lone Star". Made Newsweeks "Top bars the World". It is alot of fun. Be sure to take a trip on a charter to swim with the stingrays. Awesome and the crew is as much fun as anything. Lots of snorkeling. Also did a trip to a sunken ship to snorkel. Good for beginners. Georgetown is a great city to shop in. Very upscale but you can walk around and find other deals. We rented a jeep and explored the island for a couple of days. Would recommend it although cabs are everywhere. Lovely trip but be prepared to spend some money.

Caribbean Club: The last private and nice hotel left
We had visited this cozy little place the last 3 times we had been in the Caymans. The villas were fully equipped and some had beachfront. It was absolutely beautiful! It seemed to be far away from the Hilton or other family oriented hotels. The place always seemed to be empty, although cars and people were seen from time to time. At nights we could sit in the 7 mile beach and star gaze.
Unfortunately the owners decided to build a massive family friendly hotel and the actual charming place is set to dissapear.
If you happen to be planning a Cayman getaway do not miss the opportunity and book a room in this place..that is, if it's still open.
Good location, near a shopping center. Clean accomodations and a QUITE atmosphere.
There's no pool and no restaurant in the premises, so I wouldn't recommend it to families with kids.

We normally stay at either the Anchorage or the Tarquynn Manor. Both are condos on the northern end of Seven Mile Beach. We usually get a two bedroom/two bathroom condo with all the luxuries of home.
We go in the summer when prices are cheaper. 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo runs about $1000 a week.
Both have beautiful stretch of beach. The Anchorage is walking distance from Cemetary Reef.

We stayed at the new Holiday Inn. It was nice, clean, in a great location (right across from the beach and lots of activities), and affordable too!
Nice big pool in back, and the rooms were large and very clean.
