The 10 Best Grand Cayman Hotels

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 7, 2016

So you’re planning a trip to Grand Cayman for sun, sea, and that oh-so-white sand, but do you know where you’re going to stay? The island has a wide mix of hotels and resorts, most of which are situated right on the world-famous sands of Seven Mile Beach. These hotels are some of your best bets for a great stay on the island, from Seven Mile Beach and George Town to the East End. Here are the best Grand Cayman hotels.

Grand Cayman hotels

Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa It’s one of the boldest new hotels to come on the Caribbean scene in years, and it’s a masterwork. Kimpton’s first international hotel is set right on Seven Mile Beach, with world-class service, terrific food and an even better spa. It’s a whole new kind of hotel for the Caribbean and the latest great property in Cayman.

Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman For consistently above-and-beyond service; an over-the-top spa; and comprehensive kids’ programming that features eco-adventures designed by Jean-Michel Cousteau, look no further than this Seven-Mile Beach stalwart. This is a world-class resort with beautiful rooms and a perfect perch on the heart of Seven Mile Beach.

Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort Home to what is almost certainly the coolest lobby in the Cayman Islands, this recently-renovated property is a shiny, well-thought-out hotel that’s added an extra degree of creative flair. Its location on Seven Mile Beach doesn’t hurt.

Westin Grand Cayman Sven Mile Beach Resort & Spa You really can’t go wrong at this classic beachfront resort, which offers a AAA four-diamond restaurant; gratis champagne and strawberries on arrival for honeymooners; and, of course, those signature Heavenly Beds. This is a great beach hotel, period.

Caribbean Club Whether you’re traveling as a duo or part of a group, you’ll love the plush and spacious one to three-bedroom suites at this condo-hotel overlooking Seven Mile’s sands. That and the delicious food at Italian eatery Luca.

Sunshine Suites Resort Who says staying in the Seven Mile neighborhood has to be pricey? Check in to one of 130 suites (all with kitchens and free Wi-Fi) across the street from the sand and you’ll enjoy what’s almost certainly the best value in the vicinity and still among the top Grand Cayman hotels.

Sunset House If you’re a diver, this hotel on the island where scuba was invented, is your place. It’s not fancy, but the welcoming atmosphere; reef just offshore; and the always-lively My Bar have made it a diver’s favorite for decades. This is a great dive hotel, and one of the region’s best in that regard.

Grand Cayman hotels

The Londoner at Morritt’s Resort This East End resort is the newest addition to a wider timeshare resort complex that is far from the Seven Mile Beach and George Town action but with an on-site spa, water sports and dive shop, several pools, shopping and dining, you might not miss it. That’s because the East End is a quiet, tranquil side of Cayman that too few experience.

Wyndham Reef Resort Guests can choose all-inclusive or room-only packages at this East End resort where every suite is oceanfront and the snorkeling and diving is superb.

Grand Cayman hotels

Holiday Inn Resort Grand Cayman This is what you’d expect from a Holiday Inn Caribbean property: a well-run hotel that’s family friendly and set on a great stretch of beach, just outside of George Town.
