Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands that lie nearly 500 miles south of Miami. Sunshine Suites Resort sits less than 200 yards from the renowned Seven Mile Beach.

Great stay, great price!

The hotel is very nice but not 5 star. But we weren't looking for 5 star and didn't pay for 5 star. The staff was extremely courteous and attentive. My wife felt the only drawback was a smaller than expected pool - but it was spotless like everything else. Location? Very nice. Walking distance to local grocery store, a few fast food restaurants and some big hotel gift shops. The walk to the beach is 5 minutes, only drawback is that you walk past a restaurant dumpster that stinks. The restaurant on the premises is very nice, wish it had a few more choices. The burgers there are excellent, didn't try the fish tacos. The breakfast that is provided was average, expected fruit and donuts and was surprised they had hot food as well. All in all, excellent value for the money. Would stay again. It was very, very nice to have the free high-speed wireless internet in your room. Whatever router they used, it was excellent. The housekeeping staff was excellent, we even tipped the lady for that added touch she provided.

A wonderful Caribbean get-away!!!

Beautiful hotel! Great value, even though it's not right on the beach, it's so easy to walk across the road to 7 mile beach! The Sunshine Grill is AWESOME. Wonderful complimentary breakfast! Very friendly staff - they gave us great tips. Be sure to go to Stingray City!

The location was great and the staff very accomodating . The breakfast buffet was good except menu items never changed. Fish Tacos and hamburger best in the Carribean. The complimentary mini ice cream cone was a treat.So good!

Why Stay Anywhere Else

If you want to go to Grand Cayman to stay at a soulless hotel that might as well be in Vegas, then stay at the Ritz or the Westin. But if you want to stay in a perfect Caribbean setting, then stay at the Sunshine Suites. Great staff and a short walk to the beach or golf, the only thing you don't have is a beachside view...or a huge price to match. The delicious Sunshine Grill poolside is a huge plus.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It's easy to get around the West End of Grand Cayman - take the bus! It's only CI$ 2 or US$ 3 to take a ride south to Georgetown or north to the Dolphin and Turtle Experience. But they only run until 9 PM.

Awesome!

Traveled w/ my brother and niece and all 3 of us loved our experience with the Sunshine Suites! I read many of the reviews and now see why they were all raving about this place. They have it down. The suites are perfect, the grounds are nicely kept and landscaped beautifully. It is like a small boutique hotel. Where to begin with the staff....the maids did a spotless job on the rooms, everyone was extremely pleasant and the Sunshine Grill is to die for. The food was the best we had on the island. They do a great job hiring.......We had a blast with the servers, all who have great personalities.....Andrew, Nate, Krystal, Kayla, Danielle were all our favorites and went out of their way constantly!!!!! We would not stay anywhere else on this island.

Wonderful vacation

We arrived 5/3/12 and stayed five days. Check in was quick . The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Justin was awesome. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a kitchenette with pots, pans,dishes, even a dishcloth. It had a microwave and fridge. Housekeeping was very thorough and replenished things we needed in a timely manner. Sunshine grill had really good food. The pool was nice, but there was no hot tub.The hotel is within walking distance of shops and restaraunts. A lot of things prices are in Cayman dollars so expect to add a few more bucks if you are paying in american money. A lot of stores are closed on Sundays and buses do not run. Most stores are open 10am-7pm Mon-Sat. The beach is across the street from the hotel..traffic can be heavy crossing the street and people drive on the left side of the road. The beach isnt that shaded but the resort has a few umbrellas and beach chairs at no added cost. Further past Governors Point is a public beach with snow-like sand and the water is so pretty...but then its all pretty. This was a great place to stay! I would stay there again!!
