First of all I am a little bias while writing a review for these condos, as I know one of the owners; but with that being said I did not get a discount on the condo, I paid in full like everyone else.
I was 18 when I went there and as were the three other people that came with me. One of the parents of one of the my traveling companions was on the island but at a different resort. Which turned out to come a in handy.
The first thing that we encountered was trying to get a taxi from the airport to the Condo.. cost us 50 bucks for one way! so make a not to your self if you are coming to the caymans bring a lot of money. When the cab driver dropped us off at the back of the Condos it was a little hard to find the office but we eventually did and we met dona the property manager, she could not have been more pleasant, she even helped us book a trip to sting ray city which I highly recommend.
We stayed in condo 5 which was very nice compared to the other one that we visited next to us, washer and dryer in the unit which came in handy for the towels and swimsuits that you will use everyday :). The grounds were very well kept and the palm trees were wrapped in christmas lights which was kind of cool at night, the ocean is literally 20 feet out your door. pros and cons about the beach.. for the price that you pay for this condo it is pretty nice, the sand is white, but it is rocky.. I HIGHLY recommend that you bring water shoes or something because there are urchins EVERYWHERE on the rocks and they will hurt if you so much as touch them. Now with that being said; the rocky beach and the urchins were the only downfall of the beach. The snorkeling right around the condo was absolutely fabulous! fish everywhere and about 100 yards to the right they have a sunken ship that is really easy to get to and has an abundance of colorful fish. the water is relatively shallow the whole way there, never going above 10 feet which is nice, needless to say we snorkeled every day that we were there.
Maid service was only every other day when we were there, didnt bother us at all; but I guess it might for some, like I said we only saw two condos and one was def better than the other, but neither one was dated or run down by any means and they all have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also said that they had wifi, which they did, about 20% of the time, annoying but you shouldnt be on your computer on vacation anyway ;)
A downfall of this unit is that it says that its on seven mile beach... which it really isnt. and if you are staying here I would recommend that you rent a car cause you are a little distance from the center of george town.
All in all, we had a fabulous time while we stayed at cocoplum, and would stay there again in a heart beat, but being that we are from Minnesota it costs us about 800 bucks just to get to grand cayman.. so it might have to wait a few years.
