Perfect Cayman Vacation

The hotel was nice. the rooms were basic but it had a complete kitchen.. a great place for families to go. the swimming pool looked clean and well cared for. The beach is within walking distance and the hotel provides chairs and umbrellas to take. Also u can walk to several restaurants that are within a close proximity. The staff was friendly and helpful with all my questions.

Fun for the family

This is the second time we have been to Sunshine Suites. Sunshine Suites is a great value with the bonus of having a great Sunshine Grill on the premises. There is modest breakfast that is included...nothing to write home about, but, it gets your day started. The staff is friendly and helpful. Without question, I will do it again.

Great affordable spot on 7 mile beach

Sunshine Suites was the perfect place for my friends and I to stay during our recent trip to Grand Cayman Island. The hotel was right across the street from 7 mile beach (close to the Westin and Ritz). The rooms were clean and came with a small kitchenette. The staff was lovely, as were the pool and on site restaurant. And best of all, for that area, it was affordable. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, but not high-end, spot on 7 mile beach.

Great value on an expensive island

I have stayed here several times when I come down to cayman for business. It is not exactly a business hotel but it is comfortable good value and the staff are excellent. The cafe has the best burgers on the island.

Best Cayman trip ever.

The staff and service 2nd to none, the grounds are beautiful and relaxing. This was are third year at Sunshine Suites Resort and it was a great trip overall. My wife hits the beach it's a very short walk while I go scuba diving. You can't beat the location the friendly staff and all it has to offer. The Resort has a very convenient location for all our needs we will return.

Book your diving for pm dives especially if a lot of Cruise Ships are in port also Sundays are a better pick because almost everything is closed and if you can book in advance it will guarantee you the am/pm dive you are seeking.

Great for family vacation, perfect location!

The location of the hotel is a short walk from the seven mile beach. It is easy to find and is located near a couple of eateries. Additionally, it has the famous Sunshine Grill. The hotel room included a full kitchen, free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast. Simple but good breakfast. This helped keep food costs manageable. Grocery stores are nearby. The hotel provides beach towels and chairs. We had a great vacation!

Like a mini apartment on an island

We arrived at this wonderful resort and one welcome by such lovely ladies were willing to help us find and do all the things the Caymans had to offer. It was such a great experience and it was really nice to know that we didn't have to pay as much money as the hotels right on 7 mile beach was really nice to know that we were right next to it and then walking distance away. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and they had pots and pans and microwave with a full fridge the air conditioning was great the television was a flatscreen TV you walk outside and there was already a grill a pool and the place was very nice and quiet

Definitely go to Margaritaville, Dreams or Royal Palm's. I like Royal Palms the best because it was right next to the beach and you had great music to dance to. Other spots were Tiki bar.
