Beach Resorts in Grand Cayman

Beach Resorts in Grand Cayman
With its miles of beautiful beaches and amazing water activities, Grand Cayman has no shortage of beach resorts. However, be careful about properties called "resort" or even "beach resort" because the amenities vary widely. When choosing a beach resort, things to consider include location, access to the beach, available activities and price.

Luxury Resorts

The Ritz-Carlton is one of the most luxurious resorts on the island. It covers the width of the island from Seven Mile Beach on the West to the North Sound on the East. It has every amenity needed right on the property, from restaurants, to organized activities, to a fitness center. It is also one of the most expensive properties on the island. The resort has direct beach access, and many rooms have beach views.

The Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa is a nicely appointed resort hotel with many accessories and activities available on the property. Nearly two-thirds of the rooms have sea views, so there are plenty of choices. The resort does have beach access, and many rooms have beach views.

Moderately Priced Resorts

Sunshine Suites Resort, located off of Seven Mile Beach, is a well-arranged resort. It does not have direct beach access, but it is considered one of the best-priced resorts--and the friendliest--on the island for the level of accommodations. It is also next to the Ritz-Carlton, so many of the amenities of the luxury hotel are within close proximity.

Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites is located on the northwest shore of Boatswains Bay. It is more like a bed and breakfast than a resort, with many of its occupants highly focused on diving. It has on-site dive staff for organizing dive trips in addition to a full service bar, restaurant and pool. It does not front onto a sand beach, but it is water-side and a short boat trip to some good cliff diving.
