“10 days of relaxation”
Reviewed 15 August 2008

We are spending our last day of our 10 day trip relaxing. When we arrived we were shocked about how expensive everything was and not really feeling the love of Grand Cayman or 7 mile beach resort. After a couple of days, we are already dreaming of our next trip. The "resort" is more like apartments without many ammenities onsite. We chose to be in a lower level unit and it has been perfect. We go to the pool from the back screened in porch and to the beach from the front door. Many review stated there were not enough chairs or umbrellas, but they seem to have solved that problem. We have had umbrellas waiting at the beach everyday. We even checked one out at no charge for our entire 10 days here. We took it to other beaches when we went snorkeling. We eat our breakfast in the unit and have lunch or dinner in one of the many places around the island. We were comfortable driving on the left hand side of the road and we are greatful that we had a car during our stay to take us to the many great beaches and sights to see. My husband cooked out on the barbques several times and it was very nice. Cleaning service only come mid week (wednesday) and we had no problem with that. I havent been many places that you can put on your snorkel fins and mask and go right off the beach and see such amazing sights. If you swim to the right(facing the ocean) you will end up behind the Marriot and there are wonderful fish to see. If you go to the left (behind treasure Island - about 5 resorts down) you can see many fish. We saw lemon sting rays, baraccuda, nurse shark, shrimp, parrot fish, tarpon, angel fish, gar and many colorful fish. We have never stayed anywhere that the snorkeling was so incredible. The location of 7MBR is awesome. Not far from town and very close to groceries and many eating establishments. The resort is very comfortable and meets all the basic requirements. Grand Cayman is a little dead at night, so get up early and enjoy the island and then get a movie (available from reception at no charge) and have a quite evening. Final note - we went to the Luau at Comfort Suites(next door) and it isn't worth the $24.95 C.I. pp. We had a family of 4 and with drinks (soda for 1 person and 2 drinks apiece for the other 3) our bill was $199.00 U.S. dollars. Enjoy your visit and don't miss the sting ray trip, turtle farm and if you can try diving. We went to Dive Tech and did the resort dive for $125.00 U.S. per person and now we all want to be certified! Awesome time!

I wasn't impressed at all. The decor was average and the beach was okay. I enjoyed that my kids had fun but I expected much more. The staff consisted of one lady it seems (she was sweet)and The place just seemed dead. I wasnt horrible and I would go back but I would stay elsewhere. Bring LOTS of money because US currency is WORTHLESS there. Trust me. I went to HELL and Georgetown it wasnt bad just not much to do again. It cost alot to do nothing really. Hope this helps

We traded this timeshare through Interval International. I went with my husband and another couple. We are in our late 20s to early 30s.
Negatives: The outside hasn't been renovated in about 20 years. It needs new paint. The pool bar is under construction and as far as I understand has been since 2003. None of the rooms have views of the ocean. There is a short walk to the beach...not a big deal. However, there are only 12 lounge chairs for about 40 suites/condos! There are only 2 beach umbrellas..1 of them was broken. When I complained, the manager just shrugged her shoulders..."oh well". We went to the Marriot right next door and other resorts to use their chairs. It's not a problem...just don't show your towel :)
You are responsible for cleaning the condo. They didn't clean the place once the entire week we were there. They only gave us fresh towels on Wednesday. We were there for a week.

Positives: Best location!!! We could walk to Georgetown and many bars and restaurants.
The inside of the suite/condo is very nice. The appliances are brand new. The place is very spacious. Also the screened in porch was great!

Just returned from a perfect week at 7 mile beach resort. The units are spectacular, newly redone, kitchen is awesome, rooms great, very clean, office staff - especially Vangie - absolutely the best anywhere. This combined with the beauty of the island, great trip to Stingray City where we got a DVD of our trip done for posterity, weather fabulous, everything was the best, including the people who live there. Highly recommend it.

Resort is like new. Short walk to beach is not a problem here-just down the path. With 7 Mile Sports on site and Don Fosters (used mostly) across the street you have your choice of dive locations any day you choose. Everyone is very accomodating. If you are a seasoned Time share owner you will not be surprised at the island surcharge for electricity. Be ready to give the Cayman Island government their due. This has nothing to do with 7 Mile. Coconut Joes across the street is good, but found Aqua Beach just down the road better for quality of food and entertainment. The Luau at Stingers next door is not worth the $24.95. The Royal Palms was excellent but pricey. Good entertainment also. Snorkel the Cemetary Beach - but go out to the farthest reef to get the incredible sights. Overall a great vacation -diving-snorkeling and relaxing. 7 Mile Beach Resort was a pleasant surprise given it was rated a 2.5 - 3 star.

My husband and I (late 20s/early 30s) spent December 8-15, 2007 at SMB Resort and Club. We traded a time share week through Interval International for our stay.

There are many pros to SMB resort, however, when they titled the name of this rental property they should have stopped before resort and club. SMB resort is really a condo about 1,000 square feet per unit, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, fantastic screened deck with super comfortable furniture I can't stop thinking about. It is comfortable and met all our needs. We had to find all our own activity, however. At several points I wondered if anyone else worked there except the manager behind the desk. There are no daily activities for adults and at night it is dead quiet. I don't know what would have happened if I needed anything (especially after 7 p.m.).

The location was fantastic. Rent a car and travel around the island - paid $200 US for the week with Thrifty at the airport. Coconut Joe's across the street has delicious food, however like everything on the island it is EXPENSIVE. We used our full kitchen at SMB to cook many of our meals. We paid $47 US for a case of Corona and over $50 each time we ate out including lunch.

We did 2 SCUBA dives with Don Fosters (across the street at Comfort Inn - $250 US for 2 tank dive for two people including BCD rental, etc.) and was amazed with Big Tunnel and disappointed with Fish Reef. The shop was very friendly and safe. Cemetary Beach snorkeling was truly like putting your face in a fully stocked aquarium.

Avoid Georgetown when multiple cruise ships are in and definetly check out Stingray City with Sotos. We drove all around the island in our rental car and ended up at Rum Point one day. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Grand Cayman. It is quiet and relaxing and the beach is beautiful. They do not allow you to bring food onto the beach so we packed a lunch and ate in our car. We did end up spending $20 on 2 drinks that were so-so. The scenery made up for it.

Of all the Carribean islands we've visited, this was by far the cleanest, safest and most American-ized. You will not find impoverished towns around your resort. It is all well kept up and mostly repaired from Hurrican Ivan. I would visit again. Enjoy your stay!

We trade our Interval International timeshare every year for a Caribbean location. This year we traded for a 2-bedroom at the 7-Mile Beach Resort from March 3rd - March 10th and took another couple with us. We are all in our 30s and were not disappointed by Grand Cayman or the 7-Mile Beach Resort.

We had a great time. Condo was large, clean and fully equiped. The front desk staff was helpful and quick to answer our requests. We bought breakfast items at the grocery store, had our coffee and breakfast on the screened in porch over looking the pool and went out for lunch and dinner every night. Incredible restaurants on Grand Cayman, especially The Reef and Deckers. Yum! Do not miss these restaraunts. We ate Waahoo! every night!

Avoid the restaraunt at the Westin. (I think it was called Hemmingway's?) They made us wait a 1/2 hour for a table at 9pm, even though we saw multiple tables open. After a 1/2 hour, they asked us what our room # was at the Westin and we told them we were not guests there. 5 minutes later the hostess informs us that she cannot seat us because we were underdressed. We looked around and saw we were wearing the same type of resort wear the other guests at the restaraunt were wearing! I feel we were discriminated against because we were not Westin guests, which doesn't make sense because the Westin Restaraunt is open to the public - not just Westin guests. This really aggravated us!

Snorkeling was fantastic at Cemetary Beach. Stingray City is a do not miss. We booked our excursions through the activity desk at 7-Mile Beach Resort. (Wish we booked outside the resort just for Stingray City because we found out later that another company provided jet-ski tours to Stingray City. ) Took a sunset rum cruise on the Jolly Roger - great time! We rented a car one day and scooters another couple days to get around and go shopping in Georgetown. Very fun! Other days, we just took the local buses to get from point A to point B.

Coconut Joe's across from the resort is a nice place for a quick bite. Unfortunately, 7-Mile Beach Resort does not have an on-site restaraunt or bar. It was destroyed during Hurricane Ivan and hasn't been restored yet. So we had to go elsewhere.

It's about a block walk to 7-Mile Beach. We went for walks along the beach every night before dinner. Wonderful beach to lay out on in the daytime and catch sunsets at night. Great location, great resort overall! Hopefully, they'll rebuilt the bar/snack bar soon.

We would definitely go back!
