We stayed in unit #10 in August. This was our first trip to Grand Cayman. We are avid beach goers and I always thought the Florida Panhandle had the most beautiful beaches. I now have a new favorite.
It was off-season so overall things were very quiet. We did visit other areas on Seven Mile Beach and our beach at Beachcomber was much quieter and nicer. The beach here was very wide, in other areas, particularly towards the Marriott, the beach is much narrower and very busy and cluttered. The beach itself is beautiful fine sand and the water was crystal clear. Snorkeling was decent a bit further out although not a lot of fish. We did see a stingray and couple sea turtles while snorkeling right off our beach though. Overall it was very peaceful, not as much choas with jet skis and boats that some of the other areas have. They do a great job of setting up the beach chairs and grooming the beach every morning.
The pool was also very quiet and is a nice size with an Infinity ledge and 2 hot tubs. It may be busier during peak season but was very quiet for us and our kids spent a lot of time in it. They have very nice gas grills on each side of the pool as well which we took advantage of to grill some steaks for dinner.
Location is also great, very centrally located on the beach. There are shops and a grocery store right across the street which was very handy and it is an easy walk to numerous popular restaurants.
The unit itself was fantastic. Very clean, great kitchen and well appointed. There is also daily housekeeping service which was really nice as we tend to track in a lot of sand from the beach. The balcony was also huge with a panoramic view of the beach. The unit is also very quiet, there is not restaurant here which keeps traffic down. Each unit has it's own wifi with free internet, we had a little trouble with ours at first but eventually did get it working fine. There is also a very nice gym on site which we used. Only down side is it is pretty spendy but didn't seem out of line with other properties in the area.
Will definitely plan to come to this condo again if/when we visit Grand Cayman!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seven Mile Beach is truly a world-class beach, set against a dazzling backdrop of tropical landscaping. It could be described as an elite neighborhood of mostly luxurious, private ownership condominiums fronting on the white sand beach and crystal clear turquoise sea. In every such waterfront neighborhood however, there are “special pockets” – sites that rise above the others in terms of beach quality and The Beachcomber is one of these! ... more less
