“Beautifully appointed, centrally located, but no locks & do your own dishes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

This condo was beautifully decorated and was better stocked than many I've rented. The only thing I needed to buy was laundry soap. It had very good kitchen equipment. We stayed in unit 15 with 2 bd and 2 bath. The central Seven Mile Beach location with the Fosters grocery and numerous restaurants right across the street or within a very short walk means you really don't need a car. The numerous grills on the property were a plus. Infinity pool was beautiful. Beach with nice lounges, umbrellas, tables and chairs. Some OK snorkeling off the beach with some small coral growth and some fish. Condo was in good repair with only a few spots of chipped paint here and there. Cleanliness was not perfect. We arrived to a stained towel nicely folded and hung with the stains clearly visible in the Master Bath. It was promptly changed when I notified housekeeping. Detailed dusting had not occurred. The fake orchid and tops of picture frames and lamp housings all had a pretty heavy coating of dust that left a nice mark when I ran my finger through it. Obvious horizontal surfaces were clean. I was slightly miffed to read in the Beachcomber handbook that dishes are the guests responsibility. I don't want to do dishes on vacation and other properties I've stayed at included dishwashing. Once I left a clean dishwasher with dishes in the sink. On return, the dishwasher was still full, but the dishes were on the side of the sink instead of in it. If they did attempt to wash them, they weren't sufficiently clean and I had to do them anyway so I am not sure if they piled them there to clean the sink or actually washed them badly. Housekeeping did make a valiant effort to keep the condo swept of sand. Fresh beach towels were in plentiful supply. There are no locks on any bathroom or bedroom doors so don't expect your privacy to be assured. Not great for mom and dad with kids along. Finally, the beds were made with only the thinnest of covers. I understand it's the Caribbean, but I still like a bit of weight on me when I sleep. There were no blankets otherwise to be found. The Master bedroom in the unit also was on the street side of the condo with significant road noise requiring ear plugs for this finicky sleeper. But the beds themselves were comfortable. Also no privacy as the master bedroom window faced the walkway going to all the condos. Nice fireworks and s'mores over bonfires on the beach for the Fourth of July. Management was helpful in providing recommendations for local tours. Paddles boards were delivered to the beach by Cayman Stand Up Paddles.

This was our families 5th visit to the Beachcomber. The condos have been amazingly maintained. Each of the condos that we have rented have been very well appointed & tastefully decorated. Danielle has handled our reservations for the last several visits. She is great to deal with & has always quickly followed up with information anytime we have requested it. The location is directly on seven mile beach, within walking distance of a large grocery & liquor store & near one of our favorite restaurants. We can honestly say that staying @ the Beachcomber never gets old......it's just as good as the 1st time!!

Stayed in unit #6 (4 bed/4.5 bath/3k sq ft) for 5 nights the last week of June. It accommodated 8 of us wonderfully to the point that we never felt like we were intruding in one another's space. Each bedroom had a full bathroom which was very nice. The kitchen was laid out well as was the main living room and massive balcony. The beds were all comfortable and the ac worked super! Daily housekeeping except for Sundays and they deliver fresh beach towels each morning to your door. This unit had one phone for free calls to the US and one for free local calls. The entire condo was full but noticed maybe 20 people using the plethora of chairs/umbrellas each day. Upon arrival we went to Fosters grocery store across the street and they had everything we needed. There is a clothing store across the street called J Michael that carries men and women's discount clothing (I went to buy a $20 sun shirt because I got a little burned on the first day).

We chose not to rent a car and took an airport taxi for $38 to the condo. No need to rent a car as 7MB is hard to leave because of how beautiful it is.

Although considered off season, the water was calm/clear and weather was great. Had one stormy afternoon but it was welcomed.

Our last two days were spent at the Ritz and while nice, the beachcomber has THE BEST stretch of beach on the island. So clean, soft, and the water clarity is beyond gorgeous. (We found a conch shell and spotted ray right off the water's edge one morning)

Lastly, we had no mosquito issues on our around the beachcomber for some reason...we were pleasantly surprised.

Enjoy!

The Beachcomber was the perfect place for a family of three couples to retreat to enjoy Grand Cayman and the Seven Mile Beach. It is located in the perfect spot along the Seven Mile Beach and has a beautiful pool with jacuzzis on either end of the pool. The unit we stayed in had three bedrooms, three full bathrooms (each connected to a bedroom), a beautiful living area and a huge balcony overlooking the ocean. The unit was gorgeous and the balcony was enormous! Nearly all of our time at the Beachcomber was spent on the incredible balcony overlooking the beautiful beach. We enjoyed the view of the palm trees, the white sand, the clear and glistening ocean water, and the bright blue sky. It was incredible.

The Ritz Carlton is just a building or two down from the Beachcomber and has the world's best pina coladas (at least in my opinion). Totally worth checking out!

The Beachcomber was the perfect place. It was relaxing and spectacular. I can't wait to come back!

Me and 4 other girls all went on a trip to Grand Cayman and stayed at the Beachcomber. We absolutely loved this hotel! We stayed in a three bedroom condo on the 2nd floor and it was amazing. The kitchen has everything you would need in it and the condo is well appointed. Each room has a bathroom and bathrobes. The balcony is partially screened which was really nice in the evening because there are a couple mosquitos that come out. We cooked in the kitchen and ate our dinner out on the balcony over looking the Caribbean. The hotel is right on Seven Mile Beach. It also has a pool, two hot tubs, and four grills to cook on. We loved waking up and sitting out on the balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee, then going down to the beach to soak up the sun and play in the ocean all day. What a life! I have no complaints about this hotel and would come back again. Thank you Beachcomber!

Our fourth time to Cayman and first staying at the Beachcomber. We have stayed twice at the Meridian and once down toward the Marriott. The beach toward the Marriott isn't as fine and kind to your feet as the beach at the Beachcomber. There is just something about that stretch of beach. The Meridian is also an outstanding place to stay (see past reviews) but we needed a little more room this time. We stayed in Unit 30 and it was sublime. I think the only complaint we had was the firmness of the bed in the master bedroom but we have been spoiled with our Tempurpedic :) The views are just nothing short of amazing and the sunsets were even better! From the start, Danielle/Amanda were fantastic with our booking. Danielle was so friendly upon our arrival and departure. Housekeeping was so kind and helpful (even made friends with our toddler:)). They kept us stocked with clean towels/sheets and Danielle even checked when our son was napping so they could work around that. It's so family friendly and there were many families with children - all were so friendly and had fun playing in the pool/ocean. It was truly such an amazing vacation and the convenience of location was key as well. After staying down closer to George Town, we realized we like the stretch closer to Meridian/Beachcomber much better. The grocery store is right across the street and there are also many restaurants within walking distance as well as the liquor store right across the street to stock up for your pina coladas :) Seriously counting down the days until we can return to the Beachcomber!

After ten trips to Grand Cayman in 14 years and staying in a hotel each time... We opted for trying out the condos on Seven Mile beach.......Needing three bedrooms for our family, The Beachcomber was ideal having a 3 Bedroom/3 bath available for our travel dates. The booking was an easy process. Danielle was very nice and answered my emails in a timely manner. We stayed in #19 on the fourth floor. As we opened the door, the beautiful beach and water was the most awesome sight! The condo was very well appointed and the balcony was a great added plus! #19 is very convenient to the elevator and the cemented walk to the beach. The Beachcomber has a beautiful infinity pool, two large hot tubs, four Weber grills, and plenty of sun chaises with umbrellas without being too cluttered. We have found our new " island home", even if it's only for a week each summer.

Room Tip: Every condo/villa has an ocean view, third floor and higher are probably best for seeing further. S...
