Sunshine Suites Resort
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Seven Mile Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2011

Sunshine Suites is great for travelers on a budget or for families with small kids. The hotel is clean and generally quiet, and the small kitchen/refrigerator in the rooms is convenient. The Sunshine Grill is awesome and the lifeblood of this place. The food is great as are the prices - it really adds a fun element to the hotel generally. My only complaint is that the hotel needs to have enough beach chairs for all guests when the hotel is at full capacity - when your hotel is not on the beach, each guest should be able to have their own chair. Other than that, we would absolutely come back and stay at the SS again. Great spot for the money. Oh and Kayla the bartender is great!

We just came back from an 11 day stay at Sunshine Suites & I have to agree with all the other reviewers - this is truly the best value on an otherwise expensive island. I checked out the rates at the Ritz (right next door) & the daily rate is about $700 for a room that is about the same distance from the beach as Sunshine Suites! And the beach in this area is really the best part of 7 Mile Beach for swimming. The room & the grounds were super clean & the staff seemed genuinely happy to be there & the bed was very comfortable. We did find that the room was a little bright at night, but that was a very minor detail. The laundry room was also handy as we always only travel with carry-on luggage. The breakfast buffet was also very good with a decent variety of foods - we always got up early & had lots of room to sit & eat. One day we did go a little later & it was fairly crowded, but that's probably due to some travelers enjoying the ambiance for a little longer than neccesary ; ) We didn't eat at the Sunshine Grill at all later in the day as I am a vegetarian & the only option for me there was a grilled cheese sandwich & a plain salad - however, there are many dining options in the area. In addition to "Eats", we also ate at "Perk Up Cafe" just a little further up the road & at "Paperman's" in the mall by Foster's IGA (Foster's also has food for takeout). The one thing I do need to point out is that the road you need to cross is a main road with a speed limit of 40 mph & it could be an issue if you have small children or can't walk too fast. But the cars will stop eventually & it was never a problem for us. All in all, we had a wonderful stay here & would return tomorrow if we could.

We really enjoyed our stay in the one bedrooms suite. Everything was very clean and decorated nicely. The staff was great, some of the best I have ever encountered - always ready to help. The breakfast was good, although I did get a bit tired of basically the same selection every day. The walk to the beach was just a short stroll across the street. The few things that I think could be slightly improved were that I wished that the kitchen was a little better equipped, and the plantation shutters in the bedroom didn't keep the room dark enough for me. All-in-all I would definitely go back to Sunshine Suites. If you go, you should absolutely eat at the restaurant. It was the best food we had on the island.

Just recently returned from a trip to Grand Cayman where we stayed at the Sunshine Suites. Great place, fab breakfast, excellent staff. We went to the beach everyday so didn't use the pool but I'd say you have to out early to grab a sun lounger... the beach is much better. have a walk to the Ritz Carlto9n in the afternoon and get yourself one of their Pina Colada.. Amazing!
Will def. go again and stay at the Sunshine Suites excellent value for money

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman and the Sunshine Suites. We like value, but not at the expense of cleanliness and this hotel does the trick. The beds are clean and very comfortable. We especially liked the food at the Grill, ate most of our meals there. The mud slides are the best!

Wife and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary vacation and loved it. The place has a clean neat appearance to it. The grounds are well kept and grass is golf course greens type [bentgrass?]. Staff is helpful and attentive and knowledgeable about the area. Got some good advice on local attractions {Atlantis sub nite dive & Dolphin Cove}. Great location (almost) on 7 mile beach.
West Bay Road can be busy to cross to actually get to beach [250 yard walk, est.]. This beach has plenty of people and not much sealife. Hitch a ride on a local bus [$2.50 PP] and go to Cemetary Beach. Great snorkelling 50-100 feet off beach and some shade! Watch where you put your feet in the water. Plenty of sea urchins in the ledges! Lots of sealife. If you do not rent a car, use the local busses (more like beat up mini vans) to get around. 15 minute walk north to beach bar Calico Jacks. At West Bay Road exit to SS is liquor store and Capt. Marvin's (local activities outfitter). Just north? of Capt. Marvin's is EATS and Legendz Sports Bar. Super frozen margueritta's [sp]. Get your hockey fix here and superclose good alternative to SS Grill when you are ready for a change. To the south in walking distance [15-20 minutes] is the 'Strand' shopping area. Home to Foster"s grocery store and Edoaurdo's [sp] & Copper Falls Stakehouse restaurants. Farther than that and we hailed one of the local busses. Never seemed to wait longer than 10 minutes. Wave your hand when the driver 'beeps' you and they will stop fast!

I was convinced we needed a stove to stretch our vacation $$$. I never used it, but got plenty of use our of the fridge (coldcut sandwiches and Red Stripe) and that helped.
Breakfast at SS Grill was better than I expected. Plenty of scrambled eggs, diced potatoes, and sausage links aside from some fruits, bread, and cereal. They serve alot of folks for breakfast, so keep that in mind. Had a few meals there, but after breakfast (which was included with room) we were ready for a change of scenery at night.
We had a one bedroom suite on ground floor. Our room was clean. Nice to have a little space between the bed and sitting area. Laundry room close to our room. Takes CI quarters to use. Pretty handy. We got what we paid for---and more. Takes alot to get me out of the states. I would come back.

This is truly a gem of a hotel. Perfect location along Seven Mile Beach, friendly, helpful and accomodating staff, terrific restaurant (with generous hot breakfast buffet included!). The rooms were clean, the beds were super comfortable. There is not one thing wrong with this hotel. We had a fabulous stay and highly recommend the Sunshine Suites.
