Holiday Inn: Local guest houses

On 7 mile beach road. Has access to beach but you have to cross the street but a good and less expensive place to stay. Run my good people. The old HI was the best but it is memory now. Try local guest cottages. Lots of them. The nice thing about guest houses they are run by the people of CI and they can give you the best tips for the island. Some are located directly on 7 mile and I know of one in town on the beginning of 7 mile beach. You may not have a pool or expensive bar but what you gain!

Good pool and the best for island access. Get a car for 1 or 2 days and see the island after your first day in the sun and your burned. Yes, it happens easily. So be careful and over block.

Price depends on season

Hyatt Grand Cayman: Hyatt is great for families

Luxury accomodation on/next to 7 mile beach. Tons of facilities in a lush, beautiful setting. This is where parts of 'The Firm' were filmed. Beautiful pools.

Some rooms could use refurbishing and the service here is not always up to traditional Hyatt standards. We got stuck in the elevator twice in 10 days and the inside phones did not work and help didn't come quickly. Also, it took forever to have things fixed in the room. It's a great property, but the service should be better.

If you are not in the incredibly expensive beach suites, know you will have to walk through an overpass to get to the beach, but it is protected.

The views, pools and lush garden setting are the highlights

We didn't care for this hotel. The hotel was along the beach, but you walk down the steps to the water, and there's no beach. The chairs are in the water, no joke. The restaurant at the hotel had great food, the staff was only somewhat friendly, the halls smelled of mildew. Needless to say I will not stay there again.

Great view from the restaurant, The Pelican.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Treasure Island Resort: No Treasure at Treasure Island

I do not recommend Treasure Island Resort unless there is not another reasonable choice. It is poor value for the money at $179/night and provides no services. We were in transit and chose the hotel only as a convenience. The night we stayed, there was no hot water, a fact we were not informed about at check in even though the hot water had been out for several days. I would rate cleanliness as average, at best. An internet cable was provided but it was only two meters long and would not reach the small desk. It really didn't matter, though, since the internet would not work and staff were unable to provide any trouble shooting help. It was not a quiet place for sleep; we could hear people talking/yelling from their balconies until 1:30 in the morning. We later learned that many of the rooms had been converted to permanent stay accommodation following a recent hurricane.

Treasure Island Resort: Roach Headquarters Grand Cayman

This is a hard one to write. Brings back chills just thinking about it. Planned this trip with all of the details outlined before hand. We arrive to find a room infested with roaches. When I say infested, its not like we saw one or two roaches. The night we stayed there, there were roaches coming out of every cabinet once the sun went down. Roaches even got into our luggage!

They apologized and said they would move us to another room. A few nights later, my Wife is taking a shower and encounters the biggest ROACH I have seen in my life. I even hesitated to kill it (thought it might eat my flip flop). With this we decide to cut our Month stay short.

They apologize profusely and say they will provide me with a refund for the days missed plus comp a couple days to make up for the roach encounter. Well I bet you can guess what happened, 2 months went by and still no refund.

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.
