I stayed here for a couple of nights for a wedding, and I really loved it.

The beach is private, quiet and pristine. The complex is like your very own private house on the beach.
I had lunch at the Westin and the Ritz next door, and to be honest I preferred the peace and non resort feel of this place. You don't realize how private it is until you walk down 7 mile beach and see how many people are on the beach where the cruise ships drop them off.

The condo we stayed at was specious, modern and in great condition. There was more space than we knew what to do with it. The beds were also very comfortable.
There is no greater feeling then having your room face right on to the beach where you can wake up to the ocean everyday.

Regarding food, there is a huge grocery store that is a 10 minute walk or quick taxi ride. The kitchen is spacious and great for cooking. If you cook the staff actually cleans everything up for you as part of their daily cleaning.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a home away from home feeling. If you are looking for a full out resort experience (full wait staff, water activities etc.) then try the Westin/Ritz.

Room Tip: Ocean view!

This was our second year in a row to spend at The Avalon on our January girls trip. Both times we've stayed in Unit #9, ground floor on the end. There are so many things to love about this place inside and out. Inside, our unit was clean, fresh, updated and very comfortable. Equipped with everything you need for a week. In a word, perfect. Outside, it gets even better! The beach is 5 steps out the back door with plenty of chairs, loungers and umbrellas. Great fluffy beach towels. There are spots on 7 Mile Beach that have rocks at the entry to the water. This is all sand. The best part, it's not crowded. If you walk to the hotels, they are lined up like on a cruise ship. At least in high season. The thing that really tops all of this is off are The Avalon people from the office, to maintenance to the cleaning staff. They're responsive, caring, warm and very conscientious. Bottom line, we booked for 2015 before we ever left. I think that might be a first for me!!!

Staying here for the first time. Was here in grand cayman in February and stayed at westin. This time we have our two teenage daughters with us and thought a condo made more sense. This place is perfect. Perfect location on SMB- garage for our rental car. Screened porch. Uncrowned beach. Plenty of chairs. Only a few umbrellas but so many great trees that shade isn't a problem if that's what you want. Meticulously clean. I wonder if it's been recently remodeled bc everything is so new, clean and up to date. Love the daily housekeeping! Sure will stay here again if I get the chance. Wouldn't change a thing. Not one thing. It's a 10!

We went on the recommendation of Wayland Travel. It was perfect for our family. Our 20 and 23 year olds had their own bedrooms and bathrooms. You can easily walk to all water sports and fun beach bars. We stayed in unit 3, a really really nice place. There is a fitness center on site which was a great bonus for the family. I highly recommend this beautiful and clean condo. You could not ask for a better location on 7 Mile Beach.

Room Tip: Being on the first floor gives fantastic access to the beach and pool.

We researched and really wanted a beautiful condo on the beach on Grand Cayman. We stayed beachfront at the Meridian before, but this trip they were over budget, so we decided on the The Avalon. We selected/reserved a particular unit based on what was showing available on their website. However, upon arrival, we were placed in a different unit. This would not be an issue if all the condos were furnished the same, but they are not. Some units are upgraded and offer more modern furnishings and just seem more spruced up, and some feel worn and in need of attention. The unit we were bumped to (due to them bumping someone else to our unit the day before) was in need of updates greatly. We headed back to the office and there we were somewhat hesitantly offered a few other units to look at. We really wanted 1st floor to be able to walk out directly on the beach, but the upgraded one we looked at initially was 2nd floor. If the walkout wasn't a big deal, we would have taken it, the furnishings and patio and view was awesome. We continued to look at about 3 or 4 other units and finally settled on the last one we viewed, Unit #9. It was upgraded, seemed refreshed and was an end unit on the first floor with the easy walkout to the beach. After we got settled, we really enjoyed this unit, just the initial switch around and looking at other units when we were tired from traveling was a pain. The unit itself was very comfortable, King bed, 2 twins and 1 queen. 3 full baths, washer/dryer that worked great, fully stocked kitchen with lots of dishes, pots pans, to cook with...etc. We had daily housekeeping (except on Sunday) and the housekeeper did a fabulous job, keeping us stocked with beach towels and bath towels which was really nice. The property has a really nice grill area, close to this unit, that is well maintained and my husband cooked out on it for a couple lunches and dinners. Great way to save money and enjoy the patio, beach view. The 1st floor access was probably the biggest plus, we really went in and out all day long and it was so convenient to not have to walk to a stairwell or elevator and back again for the beach. The view from patio is beautiful. The beach itself is absolutely stunning. I guess it is the almost North part of Seven Mile Beach, gorgeous crystal clear water, white sand, iguanas throughout the area, easy entry to water, sandy. We also saw 2 stingrays, cuttlefish, pufferfish etc., just outside our condo in water. Both directions on the beach offer things to see, and additional snorkeling opportunities. Overall, we were very happy at this location. While in Cayman we did spot some other gorgeous condo properties that we may look into on the next trip, but I would consider staying here again for the lower rates that are offered in the off season and the excellent, quiet beach location.

Room Tip: First Floor offers best direct access to the beach.
