What We Love

  • The resort gives couples and families access to the beauty of Seven Mile Beach without the steep prices.

Things to Know

  • The beach and the ocean in Grand Cayman is one of the prettiest in the world. You'll love swimming and snorkeling in the tranquil waters.
Want to take the family away for an epic Caribbean getaway, but worried about shelling out big bucks? This resort is an affordable option for families and couples on a budget without sacrificing quality! All the amenities of home. A shopping center a half-mile away with an American-style market, a liquor store and free Wi-Fi access are just a few of the reason guests flock to this resort. With a location on the resort strip right across the street from world-famous Seven Mile Beach, the resort is in a prime location for surf, supper and sizzling nightlife!

Natural currents shifted the pearly sands of Seven Mile Beach, so the resort's stretch is bigger than ever. Just 200 yards separate guests from the soft sands; couples stroll hand-in-hand while children play in the gentle waves. The shallow-water shelf at the freshwater pool encourages even the smallest swimmers to splash around while grown-ups soak up the sun. Feeling the vacation munchies? The Sunshine Grill's sandwiches, burgers and fresh fish tacos fill up famished guests.

Ready to take advantage of the crystal clear surf? Arrange a romantic cruise or book a fishing excursion at the front desk. Diving and snorkeling are the trademark water sports of the Cayman Islands, and divers love the resort's complimentary rinse tanks, drying racks and lockers. Want to keep up with your fitness routine? Guests have complimentary privileges at the fitness center just two miles away. There are even discounts on greens fees and carts for North Sound Golf Club.

After a day of maximum relaxation, guests unwind even further in the 130 fully furnished suites that are the best value on Grand Cayman Island. Families who need more room spring for the One Bedroom Suite with a pillow top king bed and single sleeper sofa. Save cash for the fun stuff by using the suite's fully equipped kitchen.

    Scored on service, facility not room

    My family of 4 stayed here for 7 nights. Rooms were tired and musty smelling. “Suite” was quite small for all of us. But they did provide a fridge and minimal dishes, beds were fine and the linens were comfortable enough. The carpet was very dirty and I tried hard not to think about that! On the overall room I would give it a 2 stars. However, the grounds were well maintained and clean, all staff on site were extremely helpful and friendly. Free breakfast was good enough to fill your belly if you are ok with carbs! (All fruit, pastries, pancakes, bread, cereal). Adirondack chairs and hammocks were lovely to relax on in the morning while drinking coffee. Easy walk to Westin for each access.

    Just OK

    Elevator smelled of urine all week. Thank goodness you can take the open-air stairs. Room smelled musty. Broken hair-dryer. Didn’t have hot water one morning. Clearly an older motel that hasn’t been well-maintained and who-knows how clean. The SAVING GRACE of this motel is that you have access to it’s “sister resort” down and across the street on the beach which is an amazing resort!

    Hotel with benefits and 5 star service

    This hotel is by far number one in my book. You can’t beat the rates for what they have to offer. Live music occasionally with dinner, food that will knock your socks off and just a short walk (3 minutes) to beach across the street at the Westin. What makes this place so great is obviously the staff! They go out of their way to satisfy which keeps me coming back a few times per year. The hotel manager really goes the extra mile as well as the front desk with their big smiles and their genuine attitude. You won’t regret staying here! I’ve attached a few photos of the beach just steps away at the Westin!

    Wow ....what an amazing hotel/value!

    My wife and I spent 8 days at the Sunshine Suites this past Jan for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had originally book at the Westin hotel, which is located 5 min across the street on the beach. The Westin was considerable more ...so we decided to look at the Sunshine ...given that it's a sister property. So glad we did! As a sister property, you have full access to the Westin including beach area, chairs, workout room..etc. It's included in the $35 per day resort fee. Westin guest pay the same resort fee. Plus you can charge to your room at the Sunshine ...at the Westin. From the moment we arrived, we knew we made the right choice. Extremely friendly staff. Pauline ....you were awesome helping me navigate the trip/decision. Thanks for all your help. Hotel grounds are very well kept, pool is awesome ...the the Sunshine Grill is really a hidden secret on the island. Amazing food! Great bar! Several large TV's for sports. We had the fish tacos 4 times during our stay. We had room 122..which was on the ground floor, 20 seconds from Sunshine Grill. Room was so much bigger and better then what we would have had at the Westin. The suite had a full kitchen, separate living room with TV and bedroom with TV. Perfect for us. The walk from our hotel room to the beach was 5 min. Liquor store, convenient store 3 min way ....on your way to Westin. THANKS for an amazing stay ...so appreciate everything. Especially the ice machine by the pool ...where you can fill up cooler every day:) We will be back!
