Rooms nice..beach aweful

I just got back from the Cayman Islands and my stay at the Holiday Inn. Lets start with some good. The rooms are renovated and very nice. We were upgraded to a king suite which had a living/dining area, nice kitchen, and a large bathroom. I did have an ocean view along with a trailer view outside my balcony. The staff was nice and friendly. We had snacks and a Valentine's dinner there which was very good. It would have been a very quiet resort at night except for the roosters---yes roosters!!!! They were waking us up faithfully at 3:30 in the morning and continued well into the night. I had to keep the AC on and even use a pillow to cover my head so I could try to get some sleep. It seems the chickens are everywhere. The resort is off the beaten path. As for the beach-WHAT BEACH-I was very disappointed. I love the blue water and white sands along with calm water. However, don't go here if you want that. You can't even go in the water unless you have on shoes. The water was clear but out on the pier. The pool was ok, a little buggy at times due to the rain that we had almost everyday. As for beach towels, good luck in getting one. They are never stocked by the bar. You have to ask at the front desk and even then didn't have any. It was very clean on the resort. A car is a must if you stay here. We drove around the whole island. It is a little tricky driving there but once you get the hang of it, it is no big deal. We went to Calico Jacks for the beach and rented chairs and an umbrella there for $20. The beach was rough and rocky as you tried to get in and out of the water. A guy said it was because of the rain the nights before. There isn't much beach access if you don't stay on a resort on 7 mile beach. Plus the beach isnt that wide or flat. Shopping was ok downtown in Georgetown but parking spaces are limited. We drove around to find one for awhile. A nice place to go and walk around is the Camana. It is a newer shopping/dining area. Shopping closes by 5 each day. Our money (US) is worth only $.80 to their dollar. So it ended up costing more everywhere you would go. Overall the hotel would get a C from me. As for coming back to this island, I would not. If you want night life, stay away, the only entertainment is a movie theatre.

First Cayman Island Trip

The Cayman Islands themselves were amazing. This hotel was not what we expected it to be. The hotel is very far from anything and you have to take a taxi to get there and back from town. It can get expensive. Other than the distance the hotel was amazing. The staff is very friendly, food is amazing, and the drinks are delicious. I would not recommend children at this hotel because the beach is non swimmable and is very rocky.

Overall the hotel is very new and nicely spacious. It has all usa specific amenities available to you. The 2 complaints are: that the mattresses were incredibly hard for my taste. Even though they were new, they were overly firm. Lastly, the free shuttle to the 7 mile beach is great however it should be extended to at least 6 pm as 4pm is far too early.

Weekend in Cayman

While I lived in Grand Cayman for a number of years, this was my first time getting a hotel on-island. I forgot how off the beaten path it was, but overall it was perfect for what we needed. If I could give any advice if you are booking and aren't familiar with the island.....get a map and know how to get to/from the resort prior. There are very few signs directing you and I'm not sure I would've figured it out, had I not lived on the island and visited it prior. Otherwise the rooms were nice, the pool is ideal, they have hammocks and beach chairs for the "beach" and it was a great place (for the price) to relax after a long day of diving/exploring Cayman!

Nestled on a lagoon with stunning views of the North Sound, you'll be relaxing by the pool or beach in no time! And, access to the famous Seven Mile Beach and the heart of Grand Cayman is just a short distance away.

Waking up with the soothing sounds of the ocean near will certainly start your day off right. Savor your morning cup of coffee from your private patio or balcony and begin planning your day of fun. When you're ready to work on your tan, you can head to Holiday Inn Resort Grand Cayman's private sun terrace on the beach, or lounge by the palm-lined, figure-eight shaped pool.

Complimentary shuttle service from the hotel makes getting there quick and easy.

Your taste buds will be celebrating three times a day at the Blue Iguana Grill. Imagine white chocolate sauce drizzled over your French toast in the morning, and watch as the kids love getting up for breakfast every morning. Or, consider Mahi Mahi for lunch, served Cayman-style with a spicy tomato sauce, rice and beans and fried plantain. And, you're just steps from the pool and beach, so you'll be back relaxing in the sun in no time.

With all the water sports just steps away from the resort, plus on-site beach volleyball, tennis and more, Holiday Inn Resort Grand Cayman helps you stay as active as you want to be.
